Many Capitol 1-6-21 rioters were in financial trouble

the right and others are going to use this as a reason this riot-insurrection happened.

Bullshit: A confession by myself:

Twenty 8 years ago I had cancer, serious life threatening cancer, it came back twice. This is before Obamacare. My insurance dropped me and I wracked up 174,000 1996 dollars in medical debt.
I filed for bankruptcy 6 times in a 4 year period. This is not allowed by the bankruptcy law. But what it did it forced all medical, utility and other creditors from foreclosing on me or discontinuing treatment. Because of that, I did 13 months in federal prison due to being charged with abuse of the US Bankruptcy code and contempt of court. I am not proud of what I did, but saved my life. I negotiated my debt down to 11,000 as a result of my prison sentence.

I confess this because of the report I heard this morning trying to reason out or excuse the rioters-insurrectionists. It was said that they did this because of economic distress. I call bullshit.

In all that mess, never did I ever consider over throwing the government, never did I try to over turn a legitimate election and never did I ever try to or even feel like or think about injuring or killing some one.

In fact in the midst of that mess, I thanked God that I was able to live in this country and found a way to keep on living.

I feel the rioters were pre-disposed to be anti government, predisposed to authoritarianism, predisposed to an ignorance of the constitution and also a dose of racism, xenophobia and chauvinism. IMHO

Thank you for letting me vent.

3. Your vent touched me deeply. Sounds like you went through a lot but,

it also sounds like you came through it all with your decency intact.
