When in Russia ...

August 19, 2013 

I am not Russian but I do applaud recent statements out of Russia. Referring to people coming to live in Russia: "If you come to Russia, expect to eat Russian food, speak the Russian language and abide by Russian laws. Nothing will be changed to benefit your lifestyle and we really don't need you here."

I think it was also said: "Same-sex marriages would not be tolerated."
