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.

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.
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.

Percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
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.
That's not a racist statement unless you consider FACTS to be racist!

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?

Health statistics from Investors' Business Daily

Article from the "Investor's Business Daily." It provides some very
interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International
Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after
diagnosis:

England 46%
Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment
within six months:

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six

I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable
to England or Canada .

Moreover, it was Sen.. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn
to accept the inconveniences of old age." WELL, SHIP HIS ASS TO CANADA OR ENGLAND !(with a one way ticket)

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.

Why do you do this,Rogue, why don't you mind being rebutted every single time and made to look like a fool? The fabricating author would have gained more credibility had he not created such a chasm between the US and Canada and UK figures. They make the UK and Canada look like have-not countries.

Life Expectancy, source, a real one, United Nations :

Canada, 82 years
UK, 80 years
USA, 79 years.

Interesting, as your list shows and proves that the presidents with the most business people on their staffs had the worst economic records. Thanks for the numbers, showing once more that you will post anything to discredit democrats or Obama without even reading the results. Funny you don't have Hoover. Wonder how many he had?

Two long statistics you've just spontaneously and for no reason produced, and both are a pile of horse manure.

Another failed post exhibiting your total ignorance of population distribution. You wrote :

"That's funny is that WHITE Americans have over one year more life expectancy than Canadians do". May be true, but you pick White Americans only against the total Canadian population. You were never too good at statistics, now were you? ALL Canadians against just American whites, because you think we only have white people here? And no indigenous population either? Oh, btw, Rogue, I sure would like to have the SOURCE for that statement of yours about white Americans living longer than Canadians. At the same time, would you mind showing the comparison between white Americans only and white Canadians only? Thank you.

You're not embarrassed about being shot down twice in less than one hour? I know I would be.

Go to Google, Rogue, LRS, and look up penis and gums.'nuff said.

And when you cannot defend your position, like the killings such as the recent one, was it Miami, 7 dead?, you refer to other examples. That "don't" make it right, Rogue. And you constantly open the door for you to be immediately stuffed, like again in this case. I advocate gun control for everyone, EVERYWEHRE, in Miami, Chicago, ALL OVER. And deaths in Chicago of blacks are just as brutal and insane as deaths of whites, but you do see a difference, as "well, it's Shitcago blacks, hey, that's nuthin'". And stop calling one of your greatest cities Shitcago. It's Chicago.
