Today's Forum for Feb. 12

"Congrats to the Northwest Whitfield High School girls basketball team on their region championship!"

"No, Pelosi was just tearing the lies out of Trump’s speech. Turns out there was nothing left."

"Of course Speaker Pelosi looked upset. You would be, too, if you had to sit behind someone lying about you for two hours."

"When is the sheriff's office going to get serious about forming a ghostbusting squad? SPLOST money could fund it."

"I'm glad the county commission was able to find time in their schedule to address a non-existent threat of possible future gun laws. Maybe they can pass a motion decrying unicorn breeding and alien abductions next, just to cover the bases."

"The headline on the story in Tuesday's paper about the county commission supporting gun rights should have been: 'Commissioners pander to pro-gun crowd with eyes on being reelected.' Why don't commissioners pass a resolution supporting any of the other 26 Amendments? Are they saying they don't matter?"

"I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in reasonable gun control. However, not one Democrat presidential candidate or liberal anti-gun lobbyist has given a credible plan that will keep guns out of the hands of criminals. They only have policies that will take them away from law-abiding citizens."

"It's said that an armed society is a polite society. So if Joe Six-Pack is packing heat and I'm packing heat and I cut Joe Six-Pack off in traffic because I'm driving slow in the fast lane, we'll just nod politely and go our separate ways."

"I want to give a pat on the back to all of those brave souls that rode in the Snake Creek Gap time trials on Saturday and all of the people out in that cold and snow working it. They were brave to do it."

"It is fitting that the tribute to Mary Gene Dykes appeared in the paper on Super Museum Sunday for she led the effort to preserve many of these sites. We were lucky to have her."

"Does anyone know what to do with all of the cellphones? If they can be used I'd like to give them to someone who can use them."

"I was just wondering since you have so much money going around for these SPLOST projects how about a couple of dollars to clean up the filthy roads in Varnell and Cohutta, put out some of your brand new no littering signs that you're hanging onto and worry about what the towns look like instead of so many parks and recreation areas? Our roads are disgusting."

"What Mitt Romney did in standing up to the truth was a great thing for either side. He is honorable and I think if he wants to run again he should be reelected."

"I am 72 years old. I have never seen a president as cruel, mean and as vindictive as Trump. I am voting for Bloomberg."

"You know, it speaks volumes when Obama won't even back his former vice president."

"I wish some of you Trump haters would give information in the Forum as to what you think you'd get if you didn't have Trump."

"This is to the 76-year-old grandmother. I’m a granny, too, so let’s draw straws to see who gets to go first with a one on one unleashing with Trump. We might have to draw numbers and stand in line."
