Most of them are a "half an hour before sunrise" on the last call scale.
Actually, Peter Parker is still (and again- it's complicated) Spider-man. The Spider-man from 2099, currently trapped in our time, is the one who's part Puerto Rican. (I told you, it's complicated.)

I do. I think Obama is playing a longer game. He will go quietly into his post-presidential "statesman" period- at least, as quietly as a Democrat ever goes. He'll lay fairly low for several years, popping up every 15 to 18 months to offer biting "constructive" criticism of a Republican president, or gently chiding a Democrat with wise advice that ends up painting American society in a bad light. After about 6 years, he'll commission a third volume of his autobiography/manifesto which will basically infer- with all the subtlety of Homer Simpson- that the nation/state model is obsolete (the subtext will be, "After all, if EVEN I couldn't make it work properly..."). Then Obama will start lobbying to make the UN into a true world government- and naturally, there's only ONE MAN who could POSSIBLY fill the post of 1st Planetary Potentate...

Nixon fought back from the obscurity loss brings to win the Presidency twice. That he let ego and hubris bring him down from there may perhaps make him a fool, but not a loser.
Oh, really? "...the EU awarded the IUCN €24,014,125 ($30,000,000) between 2007 and 2013." Looks an awful lot like motive to me.
To be fair- none of this contradicts the impression he attempted to give (not all that convincingly) in his testimony that his public statements were braggadocios resume padding, until and unless proven otherwise. Though in a truly rational society, a more modern version of tar and feathers would be materializing about now. I nominate high fructose corn syrup and cat litter (used litter is optional).
If you are being choked, air is being prevented from passing through the trachea. With no air passing through it, the larynx (located in the trachea) cannot produce sound. Since the video you are exclusively relying on (conveniently ignoring everything else the grand jury was given to look at) includes Garner saying, "I can't breath!" (not, "You're choking me!"), clearly the cause of his inability to breath was NOT the phantom choke hold you claim to see in the video. To spell it out for you: if he ain't choking, it can't be a choke hold!
You're getting almost as annoying as the cr@p you're flagging. Just hit the button and move on, already.

Don't know about anyone else, but I get one at a time, occasionally, every so often, usually regarding a conservative issue or site. It disappears soon as I click close, doesn't flash or anything. If ads are giving you that big a problem, could be your computer is infected.
Except the Bush "temporary" tax cuts were allowed to expire roughly a year ago.
