LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Police near Atlanta are investigating an attack on a group of women as they protested on an interstate overpass and carried signs calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment.

The women told police they were demonstrating on the Steve Reynolds Boulevard overpass in Gwinnett County on Saturday, when a man pulled up beside them. They said he pointed a gun at one of them and splashed another with an unknown liquid.

Marge Moore tells WSB Radio that she felt the liquid burning on her foot and thinks it was a household chemical. She says a couple in a car had driven by moments before the incident and threatened to kill them.

No arrests have been made.

The women say they plan to hold another protest Saturday at the same spot.

These progressives keep calling for violence-like Godoy, and now we see that are making good on their threats. Just like the violence of the OWS.

Obama supporters & Liberals would never resort to such actions.

Such Evil actions.
Using a GUN and Chemicals harmful to the environment?

We all are taught Democrats, socialists and Liberals are peace loving, flower power, children of Mother Earth each to his/her own ideas and the only OPEN MINDED people left in the USA.

(in case any one missed my intent this was ------ Sarcasm)

Maybe the "attackers" just were mad these women were blocking a public roadway. No one that owns a gun supports Obama.

I know you say it as humor also...

"No one that owns a gun supports Obama."

But, if a Liberal used that line I'd have to say ....
You might want to rethink that line....

That's why they want US to give up our guns; so THEY will be the only ones with guns. They know the honest, good guy's would be the only ones to turn them in, if they ban them. Criminals certainly wouldn't. If they pass new legislation to turn in certain firearms, only law abiding citizens (mostly conservative) would abide by the law. Mission accomplished, we are very vulnerable.

Those liberals!!

They sure are compassionate to other's feeling, aren't they?

Makes me sick to hear them, touting themselves as the compassionate, caring group; when they are the most extreme opposite of both!! They only care about those who AGREE with them. The rest, they would honestly like to do away with; just ask the FBI Agent who inflitrated the Weather Underground.

They said under their new system of government, "25 million people would have to be DONE AWAY WITH."

SOP for liberals

That's standard operating procedure for liberals. When they realize they can't compete in the arena of ideas, they resort to name calling or physical threats.

No, they're not smart enough to be libtards

They're Obamists.

Think "Islamists" and you'll get the idea. You know, totally ignorant people who have knee-jerk reactions of violence, torture, murder and mayhem toward anyone Dear Leader calls an enemy.

I wish all those women were

I wish all those women were martial arts experts trained by Steven Seagal. They could have disarmed the man and gently subdued him just like Seagal ever so gently manages criminals. Yeah baby-that would make a great youtube video. Reminds me of The Pacifier with Vin Diesel and the girl scout troop.

Ya, that must be it Parker!

Ya, that must be it Parker! It was really just a conservative who attacked the protestors, trying to garner unfavorable media coverage for Obama supporters.

The only problem with that ridiculous assumption is most main-stream media won't touch this story!

Guess it would be better to

Guess it would be better to simply believe what author, "Associated Press", prints/posts and just take it for face value that it was 100% accurate and comprehensive and fact-checked. Said nobody.

Gimme a break. People are so complacent toward being spoon-fed by the USGov for everything, they won't even think for themselves or in terms of reality. Who here can vouch for all the details and those involved and provide conclusive info as to their ideologies? Then explain how you came into this info.

Nobody exactly.

Reminds me of Escape from Alcatraz

At the end, the warden says to one of the guards regarding some photos found in a bag made of Alcatrax raincoats, " They must have drowned if they went through the trouble of making this item and then lost it." The politically-unskewed guard responds "maybe they lost it to make it look like they drowned".

That's just what this is. Folks want to see this, take it for face value, and spin it for everything. I point out that there is no way to put things into context b/c it is ALL here-say and the first response to that is a politically motivated spin post. Do me a favor, stop depending on the media and the government and you may have something to actually contribute here.

Need a refill on that kool-aid?

I agree with you to a point. I've often said that every single thing you hear or read should be taken with a grain of salt.

For starters, you must look at each and determine if it's credulous, all the while (and especially) keeping your own biases in mind.

I'm simply saying your theory doesn't seem credulous considering todays media environment. Possible? Yes. Plausible? No.

(jack234) "The latest poll

(jack234) "The latest poll shows that more people prefer the Affordable Care Act over Obama care!!!"

That sure is odd Jack sense the poll also states "Fewer Americans know what the Affordable Care Act is, compared with Obamacare, according to a CNBC survey."

So if fewer know what it is but they prefer it and would vote for it, does that make sense to you?

Either they voted for something they know nothing about or they dislike Obamacare so much they'd rather vote for something they know little about instead of Obamacare. Says a lot to me about what people think of Obamacare.

"One group that seems most informed on the issue: Republicans. While 30 percent of the public overall say they don't know enough about the Affordable Care Act to have an opinion, just 18 percent of Republicans and tea party supporters are unsure. Their opinions, of course, are highly negative."

So Republicans are more informed and know more about the ACA. Guess that leave the uninformed Democrats voting for ACA.

Jack has his facts mixed up. Not an uncommon occurrence when dealing with the left.

When asked, more people were "against" Obamacare than were against the ACA. Libs like to make a huge deal over this, all the while ignoring the fact that more are against either, no matter what it's called.

Young Fred, it shows how ignorant many voters are. But that was pretty obvious when the lying, racist, America hating, Marxist/communist in the WH was elected twice.
