People are throwing BRICKS through the windows of our elected senators for having the GALL to vote their conscience, and represent their constituencies, on the Health Bills?

Had I thrown a brick through the campaign office window of any one who didn't vote the way I wanted them to over the past 8 years, A: I'd have run out of bricks, and B: I'd probably have been arrested as a domestic terrorist. I suppose I can take this as a sign of progress?

Way to support the Government, Americans. Let's show the rest of the world we reallY ARE a bunch of petulant children when we don't get our way.

Well, "the world" pretty much already acts this way. But not the parts of "the world" that we really want to emulate.

No, anyone who vandalizes should be jailed, and if they make the mistake of saying that it's for political reasons, they should be tried as terrorists.

This is just as bad as the "anti-corporationists" who threw bricks thru the windows of Starbucks and McDonalds during the anti-IMF and anti-G8 protests.

Exactly. We are, it seems, trying to turn into the parts of the world that we used to mock when we saw news clips of them on TV.

I'm inclined to agree. Peaceful demonstrations are one thing, but once the actions reach the level where they jeopardize life and limb (throwing bricks, cutting gas lines at people's homes), try them as terrorists.

My new favorite phrase:

Stay classy, GOP.

Just out of curiosity: Do you have spare bricks? If so, I say we build a fort in your back yard! No Girls Allowed!

I actually don't have bricks, but I have a semblance of a stack of broken up cinder-blocks from my wall project last year. And, uh, dude, if you're going No Girls Allowed, you can make your OWN fort. :)

Thank Goodness you guys came to your senses. because, you know, do YOU want to face being holed up in a brick fort facing down an angry mob without Marcia's Brownies? I know *I* don't!

I'm a girl. I'm good at making things. I'll help with the fort. I'll even pack us a lunch!

Vandalism, and things that might be vandalism or might be botched assassination attempts (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0310/35040.html).

Gee, how could a major political party colluding with a corporate-owned source of media propaganda whipping up certain parts of the masses (the dumb parts) with lies and fearmongering for over a year have ANY BAD consequences at all.

I am shocked..shocked!

Or spitting on lawmakers and calling them n*gger and f*ggot? I was just floored when I read that. Have these people no shame? How the fuck do they sleep at night?

That's not even touching on the mocking of people with Parkinson's or with cancer.

You made some good points there. I did a search on the topic and found most people will agree with your blog.
