    One more comment and I'm done. I do not think the freshman congressman or congresswomen are scared about losing their job. Most of them are successful outside of politics. Also, most of them I believe ran for office in order to SERVE the American people. Not get a high paying job and please just enough people to get re-elected next term. We will see if this is true in the near future, but that is why I think they are not worried about the so-called political suicide. I applaud them for not changing once they are in, I hope.

    I believe the blame for the banking crisis is not to be put on the banks. When do we as adults not have to face the consequences for our decisions. That is the problem in America. If you decided to get 250,000 dollar loan and cannot pay it you deserve to lose your house wether the bank should or shouln't have given you the loan. I believe your freedom watch team is out of touch from LIFE. It is us the people's fault the housing crisis is in its current situation. We as a nation have found ourselves in a mountain of debt and its all our fault. Nobody stuck a gun to our heads and made us sign those papers.

    When you have a tyrannical unconstitutional government the formula for liberty is non-compliance. Why is not the destruction of the value of our currency which is the life blood of our economic system regarded as a serious crime akin to treason and why are not the perpetrators arrested ?

    I agree with you as far as those who took out loans that they can not afford to pay. Unfortunately, that is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the debt crisis is concerned. There is blame enough to go around. Government debt, corporate debt, and personal debt were all too high. Unfortunately, the government can print more money if it needs it, corporations that are large and powerful enough to influence politicians get bailed out, but the individual taxpayer is left holding the bag.

    Judge,
    Your essay on " freedom" at the end of the program was nothing less than brilliant! I hope you publish your thoughts so we can all read and contemplate and interact with your profound understanding of the law, American ideals, and the concepts of government and society. Our republic needs leaders and thinkers like YOU!

    "You can't condemn the CIA for doing what the President told them to do"? That didn't work for Nazi soldiers who were "simply following orders". No, they were condemned because they were knowingly committing crimes against humanity. You CAN condemn the CIA for the murders and tortures of innocents. And whether or not you believe they are guilty, we are all innocent until proven guilty.

    And don't tell me that you don't believe waterboarding is torture, Mr. Rumsfeld. When The Judge asked you if it was, you completely dodged the question. You didn't answer him at all. Instead, you did what any man whose conscience is running after him does: you didn't answer versus blatantly lie.

    "COMATIZED" THAT IS WHAT I SEE THE STATE OF THE UNION…………THE GOVERNMENT IS IN A DEEP SLEEP, POLIITIANS PLAYING GAMES, A FREE COUNTRY BEING TRANSFORMED FROM WITHIN CAUSING THE BIGGEST DIVIDE SINCE THE CIVIL WAR. OBUMA HAS NEVER BEEN A LEADER AND NOW WE EXPECT HIM TO MAKE A DECISION AGAINST LYBIA???? ITS INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    America needs to STOP WORRYING on What Was, and Seriously L@@K at What Is…

    I see the World for the First Time in History rebelling against its own People. America has Divided and its Government has Abandoned its People. The Leader of the once Super Power “United States” has NO BACK BONE, and stays secluded in the safe confines of the White House as the Middle East Turmoil escalates before us. I for one, a disabled veteran and a once Proud American am ashamed to witness this Political BULLSHIT from “B.O.” (Bullsit Obuma)

    You have to keep looking at what was, otherwise your doomed to keep doing what is wrong.

    True, but I think that they go hand-in-hand. It's much easier for you to be flexible on what steps to take on next when those two go together.

    To say the banks are not to blame is absolute rubbish. If you had to lend money to anybody surely you would make sure that they would be able to pay it back. People who could not afford the loans should have been rejected. It is the culture of greed that has grown up over the last twenty years.

    Its a little sad to drive down the streets and see all of these huge houses that people were able to get into when the economy was great. Now they messed up the credit system and a young family like mine struggles to find a decent place to live. Sometimes I think our elders left us nothing.

    @OldSubSailor

    I disagree strongly – I think it's essential for America to look back at what was because only THEN will it become clear to all living in the US today that the amazing American Constitution that was written so long ago by the founders of the United States has been destroyed beyond recognition by the bumbling and power hungry politicians over the last 50 years. Remember "the land of the free" and "a government by the people for the people"? They don't exist anymore! And when are Americans going to wake up and do something about it?

    Some might say the problem lies in capitalism itself

    Since all money is initially borrowed and must be eventually paid back with interest. Societies debt will continue to grow as we must borrow more money to repay our debts plus interest.

    Excessive growth of debt must be met with an equally excessive economic growth, when the liabilities are covered by a performance requirement. We must therefore work more and consume more — at any given price.

    Societies are forced to save in an effort to cope with the increasing burden of debt. That is what we are seeing in many countries now where states are forced to save. While at the same time citizens are expected to consume so to increase growth so that an impossible debt can be paid back. This is an equation that does not add up.

    I used to watch Mr. Rumsfeld quite closely when he was working with Mr. Bush. My gut feeling was, this guy is not trustworthy. I believe he fulfilled his mission very well: to help embroil our country in another huge military debacle. It worked well. Look at the fallout we now have to endure: unjustified public fears leading to increased erosion of privacy in America, higher energy costs, a more militant police force and so on ad infinitum. I'm not blaming him for all of it. No it goes much bigger than one man. However Donald played his part of the charade magnificently. In my humble opinion in today's America treachery abounds.
