Has The Window War begun?



Well, well. It seems someone tried to send a message through Louise Slaughter's window early this morning. As this was before my latest post on the subject appeared, we will merely mark this down to serendipitous coincidence and great minds thinking alike. Of course, the thrower might have been a fan of my old fiction piece, The Window War. Who knows? If anything else breaks over the weekend, then we'll see if this story has legs. No groaning please.

Brick thrown through window in Slaughter's Falls office

Updated: March 19, 2010, 3:56 pm

NIAGARA FALLS — The "Slaughter Solution" on health care isn't the only thing that has come under attack in U.S. Rep. Louise M. Slaughter's world this week. Sometime early this morning, someone threw a brick through the front window of her Pine Avenue office.

The damage was discovered about 12:30 a.m., city police said.

The brick put a hole in the outer-most window at the office at 1910 Pine Ave., but did not damage a second interior window, police reported. A piece of broken brick believed to have caused the damage was found at the scene.

Damage was estimated at $350.

Slaughter, D-Fairport, is head of the House Rules Committee, which will structure the debate on health care reform votes set for this weekend.

Can you imagine 3 more years or even 7 more years of Obama?

I think I'm gonna kill myself.

I live in a brick house. Seriously. The BATF will probably have a field day simply photographing a "home with thousands of illegal weapons making up the exterior structure".

Oh well, it appears the train is actually leaving the station.

One brick? Piker.

Well, as they so often say... a step in the right direction. :)

My comment was aimed at the event, not the commenter before me. There were no posts when I commented - an unfortunate order of posts ensued. No one should kill themselves over Obama or any other tin-pot dictator. Rather, look for ways to fight and defeat his communist agenda.

May this brick be the first of thousands.

A rehash of the same event but with the addition of "US Capitol Police and FBI are investigating."

Forensics teams have been called in from Washington and Quantico and the BAT-FU have established a Brick Terrorist Watch List. Sarah Brady and Morris "Smegmaphile" Dees have just concluded a joint press conference in which they are demanding that Obama issue an executive order to prohibit any private citizen from owning, carrying, or transferring a brick, unless the person holds a certified construction permit, or Mexican citizenship.
Said Dees,
"Our files are bulging - bulging like the jeans on a hot young surfer boy on a languid California beach, his rippling muscles...uh, OH, my files are bulging with cases dating back to the late 1800s, of Negroes and Jews and tiny white haired old lesbian ladies, being brutally murdered by gangs wielding bricks just like the one used in this hate crime!
In this country, bricks are easily available, cheap, concealable and they can be broken into smaller pieces to make their true numbers harder to track. If there was ever a weapon designed for anonymous assassins, the brick is it!"
Added Brady, "If my poor husband had been hit with a brick instead of a small metal jacket slug, he would be dead now, and I would be sitting around home, forgotten, watching my DVD collection of Bea Arthur, instead of pulling down millions and being on TV and radio! What am I saying! Hold me, Morrie!"
Further details as available.

Just Slaughter? I figured I'd wake up to reports of nationwide vandalism of congressional offices. Really. I thought it would be worse.
