Every day is right wing hypocrisy day. Although at times I believe they're not smart enough to conceptualize hypocrisy, so maybe they're just plain stupid.

Bob McDonnell Throws His Wife Under The Bus So He Can Fight Corruption Charges
Former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen were arraigned this morning in federal court on 14 counts stemming from the acceptance of illegal gifts and obstruction. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison. Per CNN sources, McDonnell, who at one time was a rising star in the Republican Party, was given the option to accept a plea deal that would spare his wife of any charges. However, he decided to reject the plea bargain and fight the charges, thus allowing his wife to be completely exposed to the charges as well and potentially looking at prison time.
In plain terms, Bob McDonnell threw his wife under the bus. It is obvious that he is hoping to still salvage something of a political career from all of this. Therefore, he is willing to risk his wife’s freedom in order to roll the dice and take a chance at a trial. Now, it isn’t an open and shut case for federal prosecutors. While there is really no question that McDonnell and his wife received thousands of dollars in gifts and money from Johnnie Williams, who runs a pharmaceutical company, it will be difficult to prove that there was a quid pro quo from the gift-giving.
Still, even if the Feds can’t prove that Williams benefited from lavishing the McDonnells with gifts and money, it seems highly unlikely that McDonnell is going to be able to beat all of the charges. Some of the charges stem from his trying to obstruct or hide the fact that he received anything from Williams. Those will be difficult to slither away from and it seemed like he’ll have to at least face some form of penalty, whether it is jail time, fines, probation or a combination of those. Since Mrs. McDonnell is facing nearly all the same charges, it would appear that she will be looking down the barrel of the same gun.

At one of your town hall meetings ask one of your teabagger candidates to run on this platform, it should play well with your senior base. And remember to include your plan to get rid of Social Security.

How many times have we heard this before, this was the REASON ACA was brought in , it was a known problem for 30 yrs or more. You saw the post about no babies following to pay for the fat old people in the future. As is every western country is facing this problem, ageing populations and no way to pay for them. Obama never created this, YOU did, or at least your offspring by being selfish and not having enough children to replace the existing population let alone grow. But How many times have we seen these same moronic posts, at least you baggers might get a bit more creative. Perhaps that is asking too much, to not see all the mistakes made that gave away the Economic booms post WW2 to something a lot different now. Well to you guys coming up with creative solutions that stimulate economies with things like clean energy etc , well it's a bit like asking a Elephant (GOP) to dance.

why does someone try to hide things if they're not guilty?

Kaine? indicted for what?

Some might say that Virginia was ripe for such a scandal. After all, until newly-elected Gov. Terry McCauliffe changed it (for only one year, by the way), the law allowed public officials to accept unlimited gifts as long as they were reported. Tim Kaine, for example, reported gifts in excess of $300,000 while governor. For that matter, so did McDonnell (although the gifts cited in the indictment were not reported). This kind of lax ethics would seem an invitation to corruption and is one reason the Center for Public Integrity ranked Virginia 47th out of 50 in “state integrity” and gave it an “F” in combating corruption risk.

United States[edit]

"Historically, various states listed the act of suicide as a felony, but these policies were sparsely enforced. In the late 1960s, eighteen U.S. states lacked laws against suicide.[21]
By the late 1980s, thirty of the fifty states had no laws against suicide or suicide attempts but every state had laws declaring it to be a felony to aid, advise or encourage another person to commit suicide.[22] By the early 1990s only two states still listed suicide as a crime, and these have since removed that classification".

Phillip Morris Introduces Marlboro Marijuana Cigarettes
POSTED BY Akoy CirauloPOSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 21ST, 2014

Phillip Morris, the world’s biggest cigarette producer, announced today that they will join the marijuana legalization bandwagon and start producing marijuana cigarettes. Marketed under the brand “Marlboro M”, the cigarettes will be made available for sale through marijuana-licensed outlets in the state of Colorado, and the state of Washington when it becomes commercially legal there later this year.

Serafin Norcik, Phillip Morris’ Sr. Vice President for Marketing said in an interview that the company has been high on the idea of marketing cannabis, and has been monitoring the market for some time. It was only when the recent legalization initiatives — winning in Colorado and Washington — that they finally made the decision to take a leap of faith.

Norcik added that they have begun contacting former drug lords in Mexico and Paraguay, currently the largest marijuana-producing countries in the world, for the possibility of setting up a distribution ring across the North and South American continents, to streamline the supply lines.

Since only tobacco products are currently banned in advertisements and promotions in the United States, Phillip Morris also has set aside a huge $15 billion advertising budget just to promote the new “Marlboro M” and are now negotiating with major networks and publishers, to start marketing the product to consumers in the beginning of 2015.

Norcik also revealed that a big initial push is planned around January next year, and have acquired most of the ad airtime for Superbowl XLIX. However, since marijuana will be legal only in Colorado and Washington during the 2015 Superbowl, all the ads will be blacked out in all other States and will only show a static “M” logo with smoke blowing in the background, for the duration of the ad.

Phillip Morris shares hit an all-time high on the marijuana news and shot up to $998.00 from $83.03 just a few hours after the announcement went public.

the RINO candidate is having a bad month.

New Jersey lost more than 36,000 jobs last month, which economists said was likely the largest blow to the state's employment numbers in a single month in more than two decades.

I will give you close. The elevation difference is 435 feet however. That is equal to a 36 story building.
