Today's Forum for Aug. 13

"Say what you will about Kim Jong-un. He is fascinated enough by Trump to invite him to cross the North Korean border. He can't figure the man out either. Obama and his predecessors would have run in the other direction with their tails tucked between their legs."

"This is my thought on all these guns that shoot so many rounds, as Barney Fife would say, they should have been nipped in the bud when they first came out. Now it is too late. If they took people's guns no one would be safe in their own home."

"The CNHI editorial in Sunday's paper in its glowing praise of the 'freedom of the press' panel can be taken only as an endorsement of both the panel's non-diverse composition and its self-adulation, above all 'We are the bulwark of a free press' (no matter how corrupt and unaccountable 'we' might be). Readers need to stop pointing out the many sins of omission and commission CNN and its leftist kind (including the AP) commit, for they are the sacrosanct press — above all reproach — and this paper is not going to brook any other view, except in a little snippet in the Forum."

"What one thinks is right is not always what someone else thinks is right."

"I have two cousins and a granddaughter who teach school grades three, six and nine and they mentioned this upcoming week will be the beginning of rough days for the students. Parents who did not start getting the kids on a scheduled earlier bedtime and those who will keep their children up or out past a decent bed hour. These children are so sleepy they can't keep their eyes open and heads up."

''Murray County defeated Polk County 34-6 Friday night. I hope that is a sign of good things to come. I miss the good ole days. Go Indians!''

"Being depressed is so depressing."

"The county will lawyer up, too. At least the lawyers will come out on top."

"I have no problem at all with very vigorous background checks when it comes to firearms. While we’re at it, let’s do the same for immigration, voter ID, welfare recipients and candidates who run for public offices."

"Monsanto made a weed killer and it (the company) knew it caused cancer. Bayer is the parent company of Monsanto. Bayer is a pharmaceutical company. Follow the money!"

"I used to think that Ronald Reagan was the best president, but now — no question about it — President Trump is the best president we've ever had. I've taken more money in my paycheck home than I ever have and it's strictly because of President Trump. He's not a politician, he's a businessman, and he knows what it means to take home your money in your paycheck like I'm doing now."

"In Georgia if you buy a firearm from a licensed dealer you have to have a background check. If you buy from a private seller, no, you do not have to have one."

"To answer your question what's wrong with background checks, nothing. Nothing's wrong with background checks. What's wrong is the gun control crowd won't stop there. That's just getting their foot in the door."

"I know what the venter in the Forum means about the food, trash, beer containers, mattresses and small appliances and all of the garbage thrown out on the road they live on. Well, I've had those problems myself. They've even thrown out commodes, microwaves. Some people just don't care."
