Re: Will Roe v Wade be overturned? How do you feel about that?

While all the attention is on Texas' whack-a-doodle law (that has no real chance of standing in the long run), the real challenge to Roe v. Wade is going to be argued at the SCOTUS on December 1, with a likely decision in late June. Supreme Court to hear restrictive Mississippi abortion law on Decem...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

When I first saw this headline, I thought it was something that was coming out in one of the new books that had happened in January or last December. But it isn't it happened just a few days ago. Think about that. Trump wrote to Georgia's secretary of state asking him to consider 'decertifying' the ...

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

I wonder whether it will mostly be his work, with Shore mostly providing some ideas and the name and connection to the successful films.

Re: The Russia Investigations and other Trump-related cases

My guess is that he will eventually be offered a plea deal with no jail time, and that will be that.

For those who are wondering what we are talking about:

Re: 2022 U.S. Congressional Elections

It is, however, very telling that of the people that voted no, such a high percentage voted for Elder (far exceeding the number that polls were showing). It is another indication of where the GOP is right now.

Re: 2022 U.S. Congressional Elections

Sorry, but that is incorrect reasoning. The people who voted "no" and didn't pick a replacement candidate weren't voting for "none of the above" they were doubly voting for Newsom.

Re: 2022 U.S. Congressional Elections

And it looks like none of the above was the leading candidate to replace Newsom? :scratch: The results that I am seeing show Elder way, way ahead with 46.6% of the vote (compared to Paffrath with 9.8% in second). Of course there are much fewer votes on question 2 than question 1, but only the votes...

Re: 2022 U.S. Congressional Elections

The California recall election was called in favor of keeping Newsom in office within minutes of the polls closing. A big waste of over $300 million.

Re: 2022 U.S. Congressional Elections

The latest bound to fail effort to pass a voting rights bill. Democrats cut deal with Manchin to get party behind long-shot voting overhaul bill I am quite sure that Manchin is well affair that there is no chance that 10 Republicans are going to support this (or any, most likely). Once that occurs, ...

Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

You got it! Well done. I was pretty sure that Húrin's and Huor's sojourn in Gondolin ended before Beren and Lúthien were able to wrest the Silmaril from Morgoth's crown (it definitely is mentioned first in the Silmarillion narrative) , but I knew that it was all jumbled up in the time period after t...

Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

I had to check the Grey Annals to answer that question. The answer is yes, but less than ten years later the answer would be no.
