No wonder we haven't heard from Snowden lately... Enjoy!
In case you missed "Putin On the Risks" :)

The wedding party at minute 3:25 in the video starts chanting "Vodka! Vodka!(водка)!" And they're doing this in Moscow, where Snowden is supposedly still hiding.
Can you imagine people drinking in public like that in America, in the nation's Capital no less?
In America, it's called public intoxication.
In Russia, it's a party. Go figure :)
Bump for a smile.
Make no mistake about it, the Russian government is not without its dark side. What government isn't? However, one might ask, has Russia and the U.S.A. switched roles in the 21st century? Who is the "evil empire" today?
I can't help but wonder, in today's climate in the U.S., if such a public gathering (as seen in the video) occurred in one of our cities, that militarized storm troopers wouldn't surround them and make mass arrests? Maybe. Maybe not. I just don't know anymore. (I sure have gotten cynical!)
Anyway, this was a great video of a very fun-loving people who are enjoying life, apparently without fear.
Thanks for the smile!
I loved it. It put a smile on my face, thank you for posting it on the daily paul. We need things like that on here from time to time to put smiles on our faces.
