Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

Long before the events of The Hobbit.

It does not refer to any Dwarves. I think it is safe to say that the speaker was more scornful of the Naugrim that the person being spoken to.

Re: The Russia Investigations and other Trump-related cases

One of the biggest mistakes that Nancy Pelosi has made in his her illustrious and remarkable career was pushing for (or agreeing to, depending on the story told) a limited impeachment that only addressed the Ukraine issue, and did not include obstruction of justice. I know why she (and they) came to...
