And what the hell is this El Gacha name? What does Gacha mean? Incidentally, and as gacha it ends in "a", it would be, hmmm, 95? feminine. So you'd have to use "La Gacha". You're a girl? Freudian slip? Sigh.

We will see how lucky Bradley Manning is tomorrow when the sentencing phase of his court martial starts. But if it is anything like the Walker Spy Ring, he will be lucky to get out when he is 75!

The John A. Walker spy ring - 25 years ago this week
Twenty-five years ago this week, John A. Walker, a Norfolk private detective who retired from the navy with a top-secret security clearance, was arrested by FBI agents in a hotel hallway in Rockville, Md. The previous evening, Walker had left a bag containing 129 secret documents in rural area of Maryland outside of Washington D.C., allegedly to be picked up by a Soviet KGB agent. Federal agents intercept the delivery of the documents intended for the Soviet Union.

Walker was jailed in Baltimore and held without bail on a charge of espionage. Turns out, he had been supplying the Soviets with classified documents for nearly two decades.

The spy ring widens to include Walker’s son, Michael Walker, a yeoman stationed aboard the carrier Nimitz, who worked as a clerk responsible for destroying secret messages.

John’s brother Arthur Walker, a retired Lieutenant commander who lived in Virginia Beach and Jerry A. Whitworth, John Walker’s friend, another retired Navy communications expert living in California. All of the men are arrested and eventually convicted of spying.

Arthur Walker is tried first and is convicted in Norfolk federal court for passing two classified documents to his brother. He is sentenced to three life terms plus 40 years and fined $250,000.

Michael Walker pleads guilty to spying for the Soviet Union and gets two 25 –year sentences.

John A. Walker never stood trial for his crime. He pleaded guilty to three counts of espionage in exchange for two life sentences. As part of the plea agreement, both John and Michael agree to cooperate fully with authorities.

Jerry Whitworth is tried in San Francisco and received the toughest penalty of all - 365 years in prison.

The Walker spy ring would eventually be called the most damaging Soviet spy ring in U.S. history.

Hummm, not a bad idea. The Aviat Husky is a clone of the 1950s Piper Super Cub, PA-18. They have been making "plastic" propane tanks for about ten years now which were made for hot air balloons and they it looks like they may have a 30 pound one in the belly pod.(see picture). Now doing to propane will drop their 200 hp engine to about 180 hp but if they are using Natural Gas (methane) it would put out only about 180 hp. But they could take off in the AvGas mode and switch to propane once they are at altitude.

First airplane powered by compressed natural gas
No lead, cleaner emissions
July 26, 2013 By Dave Hirschman

The first airplane powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) is being unveiled at EAA AirVenture after flying more than 1,000 miles from Afton, Wyo.

The Aviat Husky with a 200-horsepower Lycoming engine is the first aircraft that can run on avgas or CNG, and the change can be made with the flick of a switch in the cockpit.

You wrote or copied : "He is sentenced to three life terms plus 40 years and fined $250,000." Well, well, how you laughed at the Kenyans for their method of non-concurrent sentencing. What's 3 life terms? Hmmm, considering the average life span in the U.S. is about 78 , that would be 234 years PLUS 40 for a total of non-concurrent 274 years. I suppose, for Methuselah, that would be a light sentence, but for John Walker... Would the Kenyans be entitled to laugh at you, Rogue? Well, they'd be entitled to laugh at this one : Jerry Whitworth gets,(get a load of this), 365 years! Must make John Walker feel good about his lighter sentence of 274 years. Bet he had a good laugh in prison shower when he picked up that proverbial soap.

Plastic Propane Tanks
http://toolmonger.com/2007/11/28/a-propane-ta...
They come in 20 lb, 30 lb, 40 lb, etc. They do not rust and they are less likely to explode in a fire. I have two 20 lb ranks for my grill. The first time I took them to an Ace Hardware to get filled, they did not want to fill them.
I don't think they make plastic CNG tanks because VNG runs at a much higher pressure.

John A. Walker? Like in Johnny Walker red and black label? Sounds the same. You mean the guy on the whiskey bottle turned out to be a spy for the Soviets? So this is where he is heading on that label, the "walker".

Er, Rogue, can we get up to date on this? Last September you told us your broker predicted apocalypse for Facebook and the DJIA towards the end of the year (2012). Hmmm, Facebook did slump, but it's back to its IPO figure today, with, according to experts, GREAT expectations. As to the DJIA, it's been going everywhere but down, up to record heights.

Would you please question your broker on this and get back to me? Thank you.

Can't reply now, except to ask, why the gap in life expectancy? With Canada, it's 3 years. other nations up to 6. Go ahead.
Now, would the above statistics only include people who have been treated, that is, covered by insurance? Cuba, incidentally, just caught up with the U.S. in life expectancy years.

You know what the private business sector is; a real-life business, not a government job. Here are the percentages.
T. Roosevelt.......... 38%
Taft.......... 40%
Wilson .......... 52%
Harding.......... 49%
Coolidge.......... 48%
Hoover.......... 42%
F. Roosevelt.......... 50%
Truman.......... 50%
Eisenhower.......... 57%
Kennedy.......... 30%
Johnson.......... 47%
Nixon.......... 53%
Ford.......... 42%
Carter.......... 32%
Reagan.......... 56%
GH Bush.......... 51%
Clinton .......... 39%
GW Bush.......... 55%
Obama.......... 8%
This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration. Only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

That's funny is that WHITE Americans have over one year more life expectancy than Canadians do. And when you consider that black males are five times more likely to be murdered than white males, that is easy to understand.
If we can get blacks to stop killing other blacks, our life expectancy will be right up there.

As usual, Rogue, dubious sources. No such UN org, no such magazine article, all cooked up. The statistics you supplied make no sense, else how to explain life expectancy which, for the US , is 29th out of 33 OECD counties, all of which have universal health care. And the gap between the US, Canada and UK is just too wide to be credible. Why do you do this, why do you publish propaganda garbage without even checking the real sources?

D'oh! I think these stats are fake

----------

And here's why:

The Investor's Business Daily has no article with this data.

There is no such entity as the United Nation's 'International' Health Organization. Presumably the author was attempting to claim the source of the 'data' came from the U.N.'s WORLD Health Organization.

None of these statistics can be gathered from the data on the WHO's website. Especially something as specific as a hip replacement.

The data is seemingly in direct conflict with data on the WHO website/survey.

And my final reason why this must be fake...its plastered all over the right-wing blogosphere being touted as real data. It does in fact have quite a following.

The version I received from my hard right-wing grandfather in law has the reference to the Investor's Business Daily stripped out (only barely) but none of the people forwarding it on and on have bothered to notice that there is no 'International' Health Organization.
