+ASPCA Pet Health Insurance So you declared our entire dog's diagnosis and journey till she was put down a 
'pre-existing" condition? When she hadn't been diagnosed with ANY health issues prior to the first claim ? #ripoffartists

Dave, we're so sorry for your loss. Please accept our condolences. Regarding your question, a condition is pre-existing if it occurs or first shows symptoms before coverage starts, even if it has not been formally diagnosed. All pet insurance plans exclude conditions that are present before a plan's effective date. Please give us a call at 1-866-204-6764 if we can help.

To our representatives in Congress.

Please join your fellow representatives in opposing Representative Smith’s “Stop Online Piracy Act” and Senator Leahy’s “Protect IP Act”.

There is no credible evidence that this act is necessary. None. The Government Accountability Office has stated that it is “difficult, if not impossible, to quantify the net effect of counterfeiting and piracy on the economy as a whole.”

Recent studies have shown that the big content industries seem to be weathering the current recession better than other industries.

Copyright law is meant to encourage creativity. There is no evidence that creative output has declined, in fact with the freedom of the Internet, we see a flowering of creativity and access to publication never before witnessed.

In addition SOPA and PIPA may in fact be unconstitutional.

Elrod v. Burns (1973) states: “If the State has open to it a less drastic way of satisfying its legitimate interests, it may not choose a legislative scheme that broadly stifles the exercise of fundamental personal liberties.”

http://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=15626322637942632899&hl=en&as_sdt=2&as_vis=1&oi=scholarr

SOPA and PIPA go far beyond being the least drastic way to limit copyright infringement.

I am a media creator. What I need from my Congress is protection against malware. I need a reduction of spam. I need support for better Internet infrastructure. These are important problems that I wish Congress would address. I do not need SOPA or PIPA.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Tom Merritt

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.. Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Sena...

Easiest car buying experience of my life. Tim and Steve were great and made the process a pleasure rather than toil. Really enjoy used car from Faulkner

Both of our children have attended Napoli, and we couldn't be happier with the caliber of the staff or teachers.
