That includes nearly everything he said. I felt I could disregard some of @newbiesforever's remarks, because contrary to his apparent opinion, America is not the centre of the universe, or English thought. After all, and somebody will probably attribute that correctly and perhaps even more correctly. That's semantics, imho.
Layers upon layers of semantics.
