ATTORNEY: You would agree it would be wrong to give false testimony against somebody, correct?

WIERDSMA: Um . Yes.

ATTORNEY: Similarly, would it be wrong to give false testimony to a federal agency?

WIERDSMA: No, not at all. Happens all the time.

3. Sounds like a typical sociopath.

Sociopaths are incapable of even understanding why lying is wrong.

6. Give him credit for telling the truth...

...about lying.

The type of answer that person gave isn't too surprising, considering the anti-government rhetoric permeating our political discourse for 30+ years. We shouldn't really be surprised at the disrespect that it has brought. But the right wing has brought it to a new low recently.

9. Sounds like the upper crust

lie without regard or care all the time. Maybe that's why Rmoney had such a hard time dealing with people wanting the truth and not believing him. He really thought that it didn't matter. That "everyone knows you just do what ever it takes" to win.
