Senate Bill 602q is in Congress now to cause the sky to fall. Please read the following carefully if you intend to continue having the sky above you:

The last few months have revealed an alarming trend in the Government of the United States attempting to quietly push through legislation that will affect your planetary environment. Under proposed legislation the U.S. organization NASA will be causing the sky--indeed, the upper stratosphere-- to succumb to Earth's gravitational pull, sending the "sky" towards Earth. Bill 602Q will permit NASA to charge $50 to each person for each time they view the sky to fund this project, adding the money to your taxes after they are filed. The average person would then be paying to contribute to the fall of the sky. Washington D.C. lawyer Dick Strepp is working without pay to prevent this legislation from becoming law. The U.S. oganization NASA is claiming that lost revenue due to the present location of the sky is costing nearly $230,000,000 in revenue per year.

You may have noticed their recent ad campaign "Sometimes a Chicken Little can spot a problem big." Since the average citizen viewed the sky approximately 10 times per day in 1998, the cost to the typical individual would be $500 per day, greater than a month's rent at a typical apartment, above and beyond other biils and taxes. Note that this would be money paid directly to NASA for a service they have not "rectified." The whole point of the sky is to provide a reference point for such words as "up" and "above." If the federal government is permitted to tamper with our associative and processing skills by relocating our atmosphere, who knows where it will end.

You are already paying an exorbitant price to repair the ozone layer because of manufacturing inefficiency. It currently takes years to begin to replace lost ozone. The costs are too large to contemplate. If the NASA is allowed to tinker with the stratosphere, it will mark the end of the sky "above" in the United States. One congressman, Ant'ny Smell (R) has even suggested a "twenty to forty dollar per month surcharge on all citizens who have, at some past or present time, viewed the sky" above and beyond the government's proposed sky-spotting charges. Note that most of the major newspapers have ignored the story, the only exception being the Weather Channel Daily which called the idea of atmospheric relocation "a project to irrevocably change weather forecasting as we know it."

Send this email to all Americans on your list and tell your friends and relatives to write to their congressman and say "No!" to Bill 602Q.
