No avowal from Bob Costas, but he appears to have had a botched botox treatment that caused his Olympic pink eye. Embarrassing? Probably.

Beat the rest of us to it.

In case you have to pay for an affirmative declaration, you should be prepared to buy avowal.

We all want Ms. Lerner’s avowal
Before Issa finally throws in the towel
She’s guilty as sin
And, I’ll just toss this in
Is her makeup applied with a trowel?

Was up in DE for Xsboy’s last college hockey game yest. They lost in the first round to Oakland university, a team from MI. It was sad but not unexpected. Now I’m in full time prayer mode for spring break in ft lauderdale and the interview next thursday in NJ. The hockey parents are all so nice, we will miss them.

Hey Pat, I'd like to buy, oh never mind.

Real homework: The Hammer lays it down, in an avowal about the wimp in chief.

'The FBI has relayed that, to date, they have not developed any information or evidence indicating criminal intent in this investigation.' Law enforcement officials determined that Akhshabi wasn't a threat to the Georgia Tech community, but it remains unclear what he planned to do with the explosive material found in his apartment.

OMG, he blows himself up with tons of explosives and the politically correct FBI says no criminal intent? How about terrorism? Clueless.

Common core is meant to lower the results of middle class kids in the suburbs to that of the ghetto, because nothing is going to raise the level in the ghetto

It is March-mostly cloudy, 45 and windy...

Obama’s minions are fighting
IRS throwing in the towel-
With Lois Lerner on the stand
And the 5th her only avowal

As Issa adjourns the hearing,
Cummings starts to bloviate-
Then Jesse Jackass appears
Serving “racist” by the plate

This circus is embarrassing-
Not because there is dissent,
But because of the pettiness
Of where the race hustlers went

After convincing myself that I’m not in a reality show, I spent part of the morning analyzing how the insane circumstances involving this property came to be, with the owner and myself not knowing what transpired with the lease transaction in between signatures.

After combing through the facts, and the things I’ve been told by a realtor, construction and maintenance people, etc, I’m sure I don’t want to be the one of the owner’s kids who brokered this deal, apparently under less-than-truthful circumstances-after talking with the couple yesterday, it is obvious that this began with a grudge, and is escalating into an all-out war now that the truth has begun to surface. And that is without my repeating any of the stuff I was told, which I’m really not willing to do without an attorney-let them shoot some other messenger, not me...

This scumbucket was, thankfully, blocked from a Justice Dept appointment by the continued avowal of Officer Faulkner's widow, to keep his memory front and center and to focus on the VICTIM of mumia's confessed murder of her husband.

The lunch sounds delicious-it was all I could do to eat my usual fruit/yogurt/sunflower kernels and coffee breakfast, with my mind and temper in a whirl and all this stirring up of stuff I wasn’t even aware existed-all I wanted was a peaceful, isolated place to be left alone to get my s*** together and regroup-that is why I paid a high rate for bare shelter in a less-than-safe neighborhood...

De nada-I finally just had to laugh about it...

Apparently it started that way, and escalated with some sort of collusion with one of the realtors, who does not appear to have dealt with anything like this before. I’m going to do some covert snooping, and maybe when I see the owner later today, I’ll have a better knowledge of the situation. There are apparently players/instigators that neither he, his wife or I do not even know. I’ve got some photos to show him, too-this whole thing smells worse than an overflowing septic field.

well knowing the arrogance and insolence of the WH, i fully expect him to get a recess appt to that position. and it is far more than just representing Mumia that he’s guilty of. the left is yammering that everyone is entitled to a defense, to a lawyer etc. that is very true, however he was out at rallies defending him and basically questioning our entire system of justice. so we want someone in our justice dept to remake it to HIS version [and that of the LEFT] of justice? right. that copkilling vermin ADMITTED to the murder, and was caught reloading the gun to put another bullet in his head as he lay on the ground dead. NONE of this is open to question.

Mumia is a shibboleth.

Anyone who thinks he is a victim of “the man” is a complete idiot and menace.

Unfortunately that is most (if not all) of the “leadership” of the blacks.
