Supreme Joke


Supreme Court vacates former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s conviction

I watched a segment of this on 60 Minutes Sunday. To say I was not surprised by the Supreme Jokes decision is a fair statement but to say it just reinforced my opinion on the corruption in government is an understatement.

There are a few old saying that comes to mind when I read trash like this. If it walks like a pig, oinks like a pig and smells like a pig; it has to be a pig.  If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court on Monday unanimously threw out the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.

McDonnell admitted he and his family accepted $177K in gifts and loans while he was in office. His attorney admitted the evidence looked bad but said, that’s just the way U.S. politics works. 

That sure says a lot about American politics and the judicial system when one of the Big Boys admits being on the take and their reasoning/logic behind it is; that’s just the way U.S. politics works. 

On 19 different occasions, McDonnell was found guilty by lower courts but he eventually got the Supreme Court to hear his case. In a miraculous decision, the GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB found McDonnell not guilty.  19 different courts found him guilty but the GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB found nothing wrong in his taking $177,000.00 in gifts from one of his cronies; because that’s just the way U.S. politics works.

It cost the x-governor 27 million $oldi to beat the rap. I can only imagine where all of that ging-a-ling came from. Just like that Stork that delivers babies; it probably fell out of the sky.

Being that Sir Galahad is not among the living and chivalry is virtually dead in this country; to save his ass, McDonnell showed his true colors by putting the blame on his wife.  That is a classy guy. That in-it-self shows the true character of the greedy governor.

McDonnell’s benefactor is a billionaire guy named Jonnie R. Williams, the CEO of a Virginia-based company. All of the GIFTS McDonnell received from Williams because that’s just the way U.S. politics works, was in exchange for Williams giving his billionaire buddy a boost for his new product.

McDonnell and his wife Maureen were indicted, then convicted by a jury of conspiracy and bribery. They had accepted $177,000 from a local businessman in personal loans and gifts presented as evidence in court: golf bags and clubs, luxury family vacations, the use of a Ferrari, $20,000 of designer clothes for Maureen and a Rolex watch for the governor. McDonnell appealed his guilty verdict up to the Federal Court of Appeals – and lost twice.  
Let us be a little conciliatory and say that accepting cash and favors are an accepted way of THE SYSTEM. But designer clothing and Rolex watches? Give me a &%$*@# break!!
By Williams being found not guilty it is setting a precedent for hundreds of other cases where politicians were convicted for the very same thing and are now wearing pin-striped suits instead of Armani.
The ambulance chasers in this country are smacking their lips wait for their turn in the not guilty box.
To me, this GOOD OLD BOYS decision is another slap in the face to the American people and its judicial system; demonstrating that, if a person has enough $oldi, they can beat anything. Right, Teddy??
Who else but a Kennedy could have gotten away with a whore-deal like that??
Chalk up another one for; that’s just the way U.S. politics works.
It is a wonder that 82% of all American do not trust political prostitutes??
