    Hip dysplasia will not be uncmmoon in lots of dog breeds, particularly the more substantial breeds. It is a deformity from the in the hip joint so the bone and socket don’t fit snug. It causes rubbing and degeneration of the bone, inflamation and damage to surounding cartalidge. The condition typically leads to arthritus as the bone is grinded down new mishapen bone grows back causing pain. The superior news about Canine Hip Dysplasia is that most cases is usually treated to help do away with or decrease discomfort, enabling fairly typical levels of activity. Really handful of dogs currently must be place to sleep to alleviate suffering. You will discover always choices to be produced, but the vast majority of affected animals can live fairly comfortable lives. Depending on how severe the damege is pain medication and anti-inflammatory drugs could be given. One more pretty very good supplement to provide is glueclosamine. Sooner or later though surgery may be necessary. . . I’d recommend speaking for the shelter about possessing him examined by a vet of the choice ahead of officially adopting him. In case you are willing to spend somewhat cash to consult with a vetranarian you’ll be capable of talk about this guy’s prognosis. This way you can know beforehand if his case is mild or severe and what remedy options are reccommended and at what cost. I hope I haven’t scared you away from adopting this dog mainly because it may perhaps only be arthritis misdiagnosed or a mild situation of hip dysplasia, only a vet can let you know for confident.

Bush Aid to Mortgage Holders only Aids Wall Street

Politics Comments (2)

As I pointed out yesterday, the administration is using the current crisis to strengthen Wall Street’s position in the biggest land-grabbing scheme since the XIX Century.
Although it’s hard to analyze what Bush actually wants to do (he only said he was going to do something in the future), there are some inferences than can be drawn from today’s comments.
1. — Urge Congress to pass legislation that would give the Federal Housing Administration more flexibility in assisting mortgage holders with subprime mortgages.
Yesterday I said that Bernanke was using the “emergency” to force legislation, now Bush is throwing his own weight to do the same. “More flexibility” means lowering the standards to create more creative loans (get ready for perpetual leasing options)
2. — Pledge to work with Congress to reform the tax code to help troubled borrowers rework their loans. (yeah, right! He has a track record of cutting taxes for the poor, doesn’t he?)
3. — Call for rigorously enforcing predatory lending laws and strengthening lending practices.
This one is the cherry on the pie. As they create more creative forms of lending, they will restrict access to loans to lower income families by strengthening the lending practices. This is only one more step in providing loans to a select group of people who can then have the former owners of those homes as tenants.

1. This crisis was created by Wall Street by providing loans to people they knew could not pay
2. Wall Street lobbied Congress to modify the bankruptcy law in 2005 to make it more difficult for people in distress to save their homes
3. Wall Street refused to refinance the defaulting loans before they reset knowing that they would receive large chunks of real estate they could transfer to “trusted borrowers” (themselves)
If the same banks that gave the risky loans had refinanced those under the same standards they provided them, nothing would had happened. They set up the American public with the help of Government and Fed officials, and now they are getting ready to go for the jugular.
