    Actually, the flight path does have to be adjusted for the rotation of the earth when flying north/south.  Nowadays the GPS system looks after it.  But the compensation is required.  Ask any artillery officer.  The adjustments are just so gradual as to be unnoticeable by those aboard the plane.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    How do you feel about these things today? Has your opinion about any of these things changed with time and information?
