Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

There are abundant articles that can be found at fringe sites about Obama's father's supposed involvement with the Mau Mau uprising. I'm not going to give any of them any attention Pelosi has officially named Kinzinger to the 1/6 Select Committee. https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/25/politics/nancy-pelosi...

Re: Not enough Whisky for this Tango Foxtrot

With all due given to Mr. Trump, nobody had more bizarre skin tones that John Boehner.

Re: Dune

I'm super excited. Also surprised that everyone references Lynch's version and not the excellent TV Miniseries of Dune and Children of Dune. While they are dated now, they are still the best adaptations of Dune. I agree that they are best current adaptations, though I am hopeful that they won't be ...

Re: Dune

Me too.

Plus, anything would be an improvement over Lynch's monstrosity.

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Pelosi considering adding GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger to the 1/6 select committee I don't see how this could happen unless one of the current members of the panel is replaced. My understanding is that the language of the resolution that was passed gave Pelosi the ability to name 8 members and gave her ...

Re: List of Books By and About Tolkien

Just saw this announced. It is a pretty wonderful line-up. As it should be.

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

In my opinion, Jordan's assholic-ness would have been the perfect foil for the commttee, particularly with Cheney on it and showing how a Republican should be acting. I believe it was a true missed portunity. Now it can be dismissed as blatantly partisan effort (even with Cheney involved) and any in...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

It is all very confusing, I agree. What you are thinking of us the bipartisan commission that the Democrats tried to form. That got passed in the House, but was blocked in the Senate by Mitch McConnell et al. The Democrats in the House then went forward with a different plan to form a "select c...

Re: The Russia Investigations and other Trump-related cases

I moved the posts about the 1/6 Select Committee to the thread about the 2020 election results because that is where the topic of the 1/6 insurrection has been discussed.

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Time will tell. But I managed to mostly enjoy the Hobbit films and they certainly took a lot of liberties that I didn't agree with. So I think I can separate out my likes and dislikes better than some. I'm still looking forward to seeing what they do with this material, though since I have discontin...
