Totally agree with you!! In fact, I met him personally at the Sydney Entertainment Ctr.(1996), and he autograph that album for me. It is framed as part of my collection.

I love Mayer's "Gravity" as well. Both are consummate entertainers. But, if James were alive today, I don't think he would fit well, into today's genre of "belly-aching", bitching, ego-tripping, and profanity-riddled songs(IMHO).
What was he like?

Maybe if you told yourself of the facts more often your arguments wouldn't be so bereft of facts
John, do dogs have fleas? YES or NO?

John, is it a FACT that dogs DO have fleas? YES or NO?

Anything, other than yes or no out of your mouth, is just more avoidance and back-peddling

the only liar is you. Like I said, you're to stupid to see it.
The blatant lie you added to my comment was, "What rot. 'All dogs have fleas' is not a fact, it's as pink said, a generalisation.". Are these your words? YES(post #514)! Are these the words that I've said? NO! So, absolutely a lie. Specifically stated (like DDH), to misrepresent and discredit my comments. But I would expect nothing less from the both of you. Without lying, you would have NO argument at all!!!

I won't bother asking you what I am lying about. Because that claim is just as imaginary as everything else that comes out of your mouth. And, you are far too stupid, conceited, and ego-centric to ever admit that you just may have made a mistake. So, what did the Vet tell you? Did you find any internet information to support your belief, that dogs having fleas is NOT a fact? I'm still waiting!!!

No, he had class: he might've smoked crack before live interviews but nobody's perfect

Thank you MA for that splash of cold water. I said that he was the consummate entertainer, NOT that he was the consummate human being.

What was he like?
Misogynistic, short, polite, drugged, flirty, and I think he mistook me for one of the other paid Aussie hookers in his entourage. I guess it keeps the band feeling good. Fortunately, it is his music, visuals, style, and energy, that make him so unique as an entertainer(IMHO). There will never be another Karen Carpenter, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, John Wayne, Luther Vandross, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, Bruce Lee, Robin Williams, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson, and many other unique consummate entertainers(IMHO).

I think how much a person contributes to his society, is far more important than how much a person contributes to himself.

Enjoy,

On second thoughts, it's much better to be arguing about dogs and fleas, than WARS.

Or even James Brown.

I agree dogs have fleas, and that is a fact applicable to some dogs.

I think applicable to most dogs(without using any flea control products). But I guess close enough, will have to be good enough! I don't think there is any argument about James.

some dogs do, certainly. As have some people. Does that mean you're going to claim that people have fleas?
I said "It is a fact that dogs have fleas.". Not ALL, SOME, MOST, or any SPECIFIC dog. It is a general statement of fact. No need to back-peddle by adding conditions to my claim("some"). But I guess, this is as close as we're going to get to an admission from you. And, humans CAN get fleas from their pets(fact). But dog/cat fleas don't survive long on humans. Wrong environment and wrong blood. So. is it a general statement of fact, that humans have fleas? NO!! Did you know that microbial cells on and in humans, outnumber human cells 1.3 - 1? Also a fact.

of course not /... you're not interested in facts.
Haven't you been paying attention troll? What is it that makes you think that I am not interested in anything factual? But now that you've made this flippant comment, I am now interested. What are the facts that I am not interested in? What have I said that is incorrect, or is a lie? I was just trying to save you from more embarrassment, and more back-peddling. Now, I don't give a shit. So lets hear these lies that I've said!

gs have fleas.". Not ALL, SOME, MOST, or any SPECIFIC dog.
the fact that it only applies to SOME dogs, means your claim that dogs have fleas is NOT a fact, but mere stupidity
But I guess, this is as close as we're going to get to an admission from you.
Admission of your stupidity, no, I'll be more direct about that if you wish. I'm not the one putting out blanket statements and pretending they're facts.

And, humans CAN get fleas from their pets(fact).
get fleas? Is that somehow relevant? Does it matter the source or are you now claiming fleas are produced by the dogs own body? Just as SOME people have fleas, some dogs have fleas. You're not likely to argue that 'people have fleas' is a fact, because it's conditional ... so why apply a different rule when talking about dogs?

I've told you from the beginning, your fact is a flop.

Trump has killed more than 210,000 Americans without starting a war.

That's more than WWII and the Vietnam War.

Tell me again: why is he better than Hillary?

And the rest.

He is actually warring against some of his own citizens... too busy with internecine conflict.!

Yes, get fleas!! Or, would you prefer catch, acquire, receive, gain, obtain, or any other word you want to use? Humans GET fleas from their cats and dogs. But humans don't generally HAVE fleas, because fleas can't survive on humans. Because of the environment, and the blood, Who brought up humans and fleas in the first place? It was irrelevant then, and it is irrelevant now. So, I'll let you just argue with you're own straw man here.

Stating that dogs have fleas is a general statement of fact. There is NOTHING conditional about it. You are the one trying to make a general statement of fact, conditional. So what conditions did I place on my statement of fact?

This is not rocket science genius. Either dogs have fleas, or dogs do not have fleas. Which is the fact, and which is just a figment of your imagination?

Still waiting on the lies that I've told!! Now, I'm also waiting on what conditions I've set on my statement? And, what fact is a flop?

Admission of your stupidity, no, I'll be more direct about that if you wish. I'm not the one putting out blanket statements and pretending they're facts.
I'm not pretending anything. More lies!! Again, do dogs have fleas or not? Is this a specific or general statement of fact? So what exactly am I pretending? Am I pretending that this fact is indeed true? What?

the fact that it only applies to SOME dogs, means your claim that dogs have fleas is NOT a fact, but mere stupidity
How many dogs does it apply to genius? Some dogs, most dogs, all dogs, or the majority of dogs? What percentage of all dogs have fleas John? What is your evidence? And, even if it applies to only SOME dogs, doesn't that still mean that DOGS HAVE FLEAS!!!!

Please just stop talking!!! Believe whatever you want.

Sigh.

!

Well indeed Shell that IS what people do. As you have clearly come to understand.
So belief can be religious.. not my thing.. or anything else you can imagine.
Elvis is alive. Man never went to the Moon. Aliens live among us.

FACTS don't matter when it comes to believing things in many cases...

You can hammer away with FACTS. But you see? your facts aren't everyone's. They are in many cases a product of teaching or culture.

I do understand the very basis of your argument.. that facts exist irrespective of human input.

Like.. the Moon orbits the Earth. No human input or perception required. It just does.
However I think that is not cogent to this fleas on dogs argument. There are no doubt many universal TRUTHS.. The Sun shines.

But that is a broad fact. It does other stuff as well.

So arguing about human issues of fact is just a waste of time.. well assuming TIME exists.
Perhaps we just think it does, because our brains can't accept that everything is happening at once. !

You started it.

Trump has killed more than 210,000 Americans without starting a war.

That's more than WWII and the Vietnam War.

Tell me again: why is he better than any other President or Presidential candidate?
Back in January or February, Biden thought Trump closing travel from China was an example of hysterical xenophobia. Nancy Pelosi encouraged everyone to come to Chinatown (in her home district) and commingle in the business district.

European countries didn't take affirmative steps either, and we saw what coronavirus did in Europe.

Your country let coronavirus into your country, and now 904 people are dead. Tell me, who do you blame for that? Which of your leaders murdered those 904 people?

War is a deliberate act, intended to cause death. I don't believe Trump, the leaders in Europe, or in Australia deliberately killed anybody from the virus, and so there is no equivalence. My country has anywhere between 20-50,000 deaths from influenza every year. Who do you want to blame for that? Who do you blame for that in Australia? How about in Europe?
