Don't miss the concluding article in this posting, which debunks the myth spread by the Republicans that the Affordable Care Act is unpopular with most Americans. It is only unpopular among those who oppose government spending as a matter of principal, and among those who have been misled about the Act by irresponsible voices in the media and in Congress.
An Uneducated Guess: The Disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
Extensive searching in the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean, where there would be no place whatsoever for Flight 370 to land, have been and will continue to be fruitless. Flying in that direction would have been tantamount to suicide, which could have been more easily accomplished by simply diving the aircraft downward into the sea.
We know it went this far.
and "pinging" picked up by a satellite suggested it then flew, north or south, along the black arc.
I believe that Flight 370 did not fly southward and crash into the ocean, neither purposely nor accidentally. I suspect that the plane, hijacked by either its pilot, co-pilot or a skilled pilot who was on board as a passenger, ultimately flew northward and made a successful landing somewhere in the southern or central part of Asia, areas within its range and fuel capacity. A crash on land, by now, would have been noticed by human eye or satellite.
The political situation to which the hijacking relates, in my opinion, would be one in either Maylasia (where Flight 370's pilot was known to be a supporter of a recently convicted opponent of the government) or a country whose population includes a minority which feels it is being oppressed. This would include China or one of the adjacent central Asian republics such as Kyrgyzstan or Tajikistan or even the Pakistani province of Balochistan, where insurgency also involves Iran. I would think that our intelligence services are seeking this answer right now, if they do not already have it. Of course, Flight 370 need not have actually landed in any of these places for pressure to be applied to these governments.
I believe Flight 370, probably hidden under tarpaulins, is possibly somewhere on this map where there are plenty of isolated airports with runways long enough to handle the missing 777.
As for what will happen in the future, nations do not readily give in to hijackers' and hostage-holders' demands which I suspect will be, or already have been, made. A military attack will be made on the plane as negotiations proceed, in which the hijackers and many of the passengers being held as hostages, unfortunately, will be killed.
But if I am entirely wrong in my guesswork, and if the scenario I suggest does not play out within the next few months, I would then revise my opinion to one believing that the plane is somewhere on the bottom of the sea, as a result of a hijacking "gone wrong."

The Democrats' Dilemma
Here is a summary of all of the things which supposedly are “bad” about Obamacare (or the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, which is its correct name) and which the G.O.P. uses to attack Democratic candidates.
But let’s now address those phony criticisms of the Affordable Care Act listed above.
Texas Congressman Gohmert is an example of G.O.P. Congressman who have torn out their hair opposing Obamacare.
