Foreclosure Crisis Claims Family Pets, Animal Shelters Overflow

According to recent news reports, in areas of the nation where the foreclosure crisis is hitting hard, local animal shelters are seeing a sharp increase in the number of owners surrendering family pets, many citing the loss of their home as their reason. One news report quoted an official at the Escondido Humane Society, located in California, a state hard hit by the recent mortgage industry turmoil, as saying that the organization receives between 20 and 30 calls per day from people who are losing their homes to foreclosure and have no place for their pets.

While, for some, losing the family pets may seem like the least of worries in a potential foreclosure situation, that is simply not the case for families with children who've grown up with the pets or for many elderly people, for whom these pets are near constant companions. Facing the loss of pets is akin to the heartbreak of losing family members, which is exactly what their pets are to them.

(Best Syndication) The California Highway Patrol has received numerous inquiries from the public and allied agency personnel regarding DL requirements for residents of other countries. A majority of the inquiries concern undocumented aliens from Mexico.

Pursuant to Section 12500(a) of the California Vehicle Code (CVC), any person operating a motor vehicle on a highway in this state is required to possess a California DL unless "expressly exempted under this code." Section 12502 CVC exempts a nonresident from the requirement of possessing a California DL provided the driver has in or her immediate possession a valid DL issued by the foreign jurisdiction (i.e., state, province, country) in which he or she lives.

Congress Fails To Override Presidents Child Health Care Program Veto – Representative Stark Makes Statement

Congress Fails To Override Presidents Child Health Care Program Veto – Representative Stark Makes Statement

Stark on Thursday

(Best Syndication) The Congress failed to overturn a presidential veto of the expansion of the Social Security Act to extend and improve the Children's Health Insurance Program. The vote on H R 976 was 273 yea and 156 nay, but the majority was not enough to override the veto. There were 4 no-votes and the measure was 13 votes short of an override.

So is this a loss for the Democrats who supported this bill? This is a loss for Republicans according to some political analysts. Democrats will likely leverage this veto against the Republican in the next election. California Democrat Representative Pete Stark said “This veto… has shown the American people the President’s true priorities.”
