Word For The Day, Monday, 9/16/13
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
1. to renounce, repudiate, or retract, especially with formal solemnity; recant: to abjure one's errors. 2. to renounce or give up under oath; forswear: to abjure allegiance. 3. to avoid or shun
Etymology:140050; late Middle English < Latin abjūrāre to deny on oath, equivalent to ab- ab- + jūrāre to swear; see jury1
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....

Even the unions abjure obamacare, but still we are marching towards that cliff.
