The top item is usually for building/dwelling/property and that covers the cost to rebuild your property for covered perils like fire, wind damage, vandalism, etc. The coverage is based on your selected estimate of the cost to rebuild the structure, not the land value as land rarely gets destroyed and regardless is not covered by insurance. Additionally, your normal policy does not cover earthquakes or floods, either, but you can get separate policies for these if you are in earthquake or flood-prone areas. Policies for these perils can be expensive, but you decide if it??s worth it. Other items are also not covered like wear and tear, so talk to your agent about what is and what isn??t covered.

For this pope," his satirical portrait of George W Bush in the waning months of Bushs second administration and viewers stayed away not only was such an assessment of his presidency premature most observers agreed but it wasnt nearly as compelling as the Obama-McCain campaign unfolding in real life In 2000 a movie about the Cuban Missile Crisis arrived in theaters in the toxic aftermath of the Bush v Gore re-count The film was only a modest success perhaps because audiences were exhausted after a season of political strife But "Thirteen Days" wound up being politically pivotal playing an important role in Bushs nascent first term when he invited Sen Edward M Kennedy to a private screening in the White House Cantor voted with Democrats on a bill that would charge a 90 percent tax on all executive bonuses.but always welcoming and full of joy."Political cartoonist PAUL CONRAD (1924-2010):: "Conrad's cartoons.
