Today's Forum for July 30

"The Carpet Capital Rotary Club Park is directly across the street from Harmon Field, which has dozens of parking spaces that go mostly unused."

"Geez? The definition of geez is a mild expression used to show surprise or annoyance. Also used as a mild oath or introductory expletive (as to express surprise). Look it up!"

"Climate and weather aren’t the same thing but please tell us more about your scientific assessment that global warming isn’t real because it was cool one morning in one region while the northeast, northwest and Europe are having some of the hottest summers on record."

"If there is a warming spell in December or a cooling spell in July, people think global warming does not exist. Must have never been outside of Dalton.''

"I don't think that Elijah Cummings nor any other U.S. representative or senator could honestly be called poor. Pitiful maybe, but never poor. Even the college-educated, first-term bartender is from a well-to-do family. The serfs pay for the self-important royalty to live very well."

"Is Kyle Wingfield describing the Tragedy of the Commons like it's some new thing?"

"Jared Kushner owns lots of Baltimore-area, rodent-infested apartments with more than 200 code violations. His company is accused of being slumlords."

"The Democrats claim that they are compassionate about their cities and that they really care, but they never ever do anything that actually improves the quality of the lives in their communities. Their constituents are just as unhappy today as they were 50 years ago."

"I'm totally shocked that a bunch of people haven't called the Forum to say why doesn't Olive Garden move into the old O'Charley's building."

"I have a solution to the rat infestation problem in Baltimore. Gather up all of the feral cats that live in Dalton and send them to Baltimore and maybe they won't have a rat problem."

"I'd like to see one word in the tweet that President Trump made about Elijah Cummings and his rat-infested district that indicates he's saying anything about race. There's nothing in there that refers to race at all. He's talking about the conditions of Baltimore."

"Donald Trump points out that Baltimore is a cesspool of a city run by Democrats and just because Elijah Cummings happens to be black, Trump is a racist. If Elijah Cummings was white, nothing would be said. Everyone knows Baltimore has its problems. Don't bring race into it."

"Most of you Forum commenters calling Baltimore a trashy city have never been there, much less left your bubble of Whitfield County. Get out and experience the world instead of relying on a serial liar to shape your worldview."

"We've had Republican presidents in the past that had to sit there and take all of this criticism from the Democrats year after year after year. Finally, we have a president that ain't going to sit there and take it anymore. He's going to tell it like it is and guess what? The Democrats don't know how to deal with it. They don't know how to deal with criticism. The first thing that comes out of their mouth is they try to play the race card."
