And the federal budget will be nothing but entitlement spending and interest payments on debt if we keep on the path Congress has us on now.

Wasn't it Stalin that said "Quantity has a quality all it's own" when the Allies told him USSR's equipment was inferior?
I've been working on turbine powered aircraft for over 40 years and have never seen ANY jet fuel delivered that had avgas blended into it.
A 70% gas blend would hot start any engine so bad it would be destroyed before it reached idle speed.
Rolls allows, on it's turboshaft engines, 25 hours total with 10% mix of avgas for starting in very cold weather. Any more than that and you throw the turbine wheels away. (70 grand or more for 4 wheels)
Pratt doesn't like any avgas in their fuel at all.
The problem is the lead and sulphur in all avgas blends. It does bad things to the high heat materials that turbine components are made of.
BTW, I run lots of JetA in my '83 Mercedes 240D.
Just add some 2-stroke oil for lubrication.
"No, they mean kerosene-gasoline blend, more commonly knows as jet fuel."
Jet fuel has no gasoline in it.
In fact most turbine aircraft engines are limited to just a few hours of operation with any amount of gasoline mixed into the fuel.
After that you you get to overhaul the hot-end with the added bonus of tossing some very expensive turbine wheels of blades away
He's promising bulk data will go to a third party so the NSA can't see it. Okay, who is this magical third party?"
We all hope so.

"The lead times for AMD processors are as follows (keep in mind, these are because AMD is having shortagesnothing caused by Dell):
6376 – 38 Day LT
6386SE – 20 Day LT
6328 – 20 Day LT
6344 – 45 Day LT
6320 – 25 Day LT
6380 – 60 Day LT
6348 – 20 Day LT
6378 – 38 Day LT
6366HE – 16 Day LT
6272 – 20 Day LT"
Dell claims it's all AMD's fault. What's going on over at AMD? Is AMD dead?
Or is Dell passing the buck and it's really Dell's fault?"
At a Tuesday closed-door meeting with tech leaders, one unnamed participant suggested to Obama that Snowden be pardoned; Obama said he couldn't do that. During a 60 Minutes report on the leaks that aired Sunday, though, even an NSA official suggested it might be worth discussing amnesty—if and only if he returns the leaked documents securely, almost surely an impossibility at this point. (CBS news has been busy defending itself against accusations that Sunday's show was a "puff piece.")
Even that tiny, tentative olive branch seems to have crossed a line for security hawks. NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander dismissed the idea, comparing Snowden to "a hostage taker taking 50 people hostage, shooting 10, and then say[ing], 'You give me full amnesty and I'll let the other 40 go.'"
Former CIA director James Woolsey responded to the suggestion of amnesty even more strongly, saying in a Fox News interview that Snowden should be hanged.
"I think giving him amnesty is idiotic,” said Woolsey, who ran the CIA from 1993 to 1995. “He should be prosecuted for treason. If convicted by a jury of his peers, he should be hanged by his neck until he is dead.""
