Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'
A 777-2000 is worth 230 Million dollars. The pilot(s) could sell it for $23 million dollars and live high off the hog. I think every airline better put in an automatic beacon using satellite and/or HF radio to know where every plane is at all times and the pilot(s) can't turn it off. There was another plane stolen in Angola by a mechanic ten years ago. It was never found. I'm sure that guy is living very well also. This is organized crime. IMHO. YMMV.

US Justice Blocks Implementation of ACA Contraceptive Mandate
If the supreme court allows for profit corporations to deny health care insurance for religious reasons only the worker will suffer. If you work for a Jehovah's witness employer they may demand that blood transfusions be covered. If you work for a Christian Science believer they may demand only broken bones be covered by health insurance. A Christian faith healer may demand that they not be required to offer any health insurance and that those sick workers should pray the disease or injuries away with the grace of Jesus.
The employee earns their health care insurance with their labor. It is no different then being paid wages. Just like the government can mandate wages and work conditions they are able to mandate health care insurance coverage for workers. This is under the general welfare and commerce clause of the constitution.
A religious exemption allowance would allow the Racist Church of the Creator members not to hire non-whites based on their beliefs.
