So you've given up complaining that textual exegesis is a semantic argument?

You flagrantly violate the principle of charity in interpretation here. That is obvious. And it's enough.
But what you are claiming is wrong on its face as you can see when he says "and everything else" at the end: meaning all the classifications he didn't list.

You didn't address my examples either. No need to bother as I am frankly tired of the "aha, we can interpret him to say X, and find a case where X isn't true so we can say everything he said under any interpretation is wrong hahaha" game.

I addressed your first example in the first paragraph of my first post.

The inclusion of and everything else does not redefine all to mean parts.

I will try to remember the principle of charity in interpretation in the future.

      The Other Clinton Foundation: A Look at Bill and Hillary's Personal Philanthropy

     This is their own money, this one. It turns out that the Clintons are fairly generous by "job creator" standards, about 3 times more.

     But get this, you'll like this, the Clintons sent much of their donation money to the Clinton Family Foundation. Do I have to draw a picture? Far from profiting from their fundraising charity, they donated their own money to it, and not a small amount.

     I don't know what the standard is for a great charity. The Clintons, whatever else they might be, are the real deal in philanthropy, which is kind of great.

He looks like a Columbo villain in that portrait.

To me, it's more the maitre'd at that swanky overpriced restaurant downtown. You know, the guy who doubles as their lounge singer on weeknights.

This album (and bond too) is to prog metal, what Xenakis is to me for classical:

Mehta's Symphonie Fantastique, from the Decca big box.  A bit slow to start, but highly virtuosic when it counts.  It seems to lack a whole lot beyond being well played and in excellent sound.
