Today's Forum for July 13

"Trump’s announcement on Thursday was that he’d be doing exactly what his own Census Bureau told him and Wilbur Ross they should do a year and a half ago. They also told them that if they tried to change the Census they would lose in court. Sounds like maybe they knew what they were talking about and Trump just wasted a bunch of time and taxpayer money."

"The Belk building has historic value but the church building does not. Hummm! Could this distinction have anything to do with sources of restoration dollars, one being private and the other being taxpayer dollars?"

"The 14th Amendment's language on 'untaxed Indians' is there because people at the time were deeply hostile to giving Native Americans the right to vote. 'Untaxed' was a code word for 'not real people.' It took the Voting Rights Act in 1965 to undo this grievous error."

"So I see the editors finally see for themselves the commissioners have no interest in citizen input or opinions. There is no defending this type of elitist attitude or position and it should not be tolerated. I've made this point many times over the years, and yep, I'm going to tell you I told you so."

"Our county commissioners think they were elected not to represent us, but to do what's best for us. And that's what they're doing. They're doing what they think is best for us, just like the government does in Russia."

"Has anyone noticed how fake Hollywood talks about guns and all this stuff, and that's the only kind of movies they ever make? They're the ones pushing the guns, the violence, the profanity. It's ridiculous. Every movie they make is R-rated."

"I think we've barely scratched the surface on this Jeffrey Epstein story. If the whole truth is allowed to come out, it will be the story of the century."

"Are there any support groups available in Dalton, Georgia, for caretakers of individuals with dementia?"

Editor's note: This group is not specifically for caretakers of those with dementia: "The RossWoods Caregiver Support Group/Lunch and Learn meets on the last Tuesday of each month at RossWoods Adult Day Services in Dalton from noon to 1:15 p.m. A light lunch is served. All caregivers are invited. Free respite and lunch will be provided for your loved one during the support group hour. If this is your first time, call (706) 270-9628 to register your loved one for lunch."

"These liberal Democrats are still crying over spilled milk. You lost a presidential race. Just move on."

"Just when I thought I've seen everything, there's actually a TV show on a cable network called 'Dr. Pimple Popper.'"

"If you like Trump, vote for him, no matter what your spouse may say."

"This is for all the folks who claim the Democrats are responsible for all of the bad things being said about the president. It's not just the Democrats. It's about 80% of the people in the country. Most of us are quiet right now because we prefer to show this president what we think of him at the ballot box. Our 'stable genius' needs to be shown the door. You don't have to be a Democrat to know this."

"The upcoming ICE raids are spine-shivering and reminiscent of Jews and others who were targeted during the Nazi era."
