Subject: Congress to allow E-mail charges

Pardon me for using your e-mail for something non-business related, but
this seems important enough
to share with all my friends and customers, since we all use e-mail.

Congress to Allow E-mail Charges

Please pass this on to all you know
Since many of us use e-mail for business and to keep
up with friends and family,
I thought you'd like to know the following.
Please jump on it right away and forward this to others.
CNN has reported that within the next two weeks Congress is
going to vote on allowing telephone companies to CHARGE A
TOLL FEE for Internet access. Translation: Every time we
send long distance e-mail we will receive a long distance
charge. This will get costly. Please visit the following web
Site and file a complaint. Complain to your Congressperson.
We can't allow this to pass. The following address will
allow you to send an e-mail on this subject DIRECTLY to
your Congressperson. Then go to "Write Your Representative"

Pass this on to your friends. It is urgent!
I hope all of you will pass this on to all your friends and
family. We should ALL have an interest in this one. WAIT,
THERE'S MORE. IN ADDITION, 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 use of the Internet. Under proposed legislation
the U.S. Postal Service will be attempting to bilk email
users out of "alternate postage fees".

Bill 602P will permit the Federal Govt. to charge a 5 cent
surcharge on every email delivered, by billing Internet
Service Providers at source. The consumer would then be
billed in turn by the ISP. Washington D.C. lawyer Richard
Step is working without pay to prevent this legislation
from becoming law. The U.S. Postal Service is claiming that
lost revenue due to the proliferation of email is costing
nearly $230,000,000 in revenue per year. You may have
noticed their recent ad campaign "There is nothing like a
letter". Since the average citizen received about 10 pieces
of email per day in 1998, the cost to the typical individual
would be an additional 50 cents per day, or over $180
dollars Per year, above and beyond their regular Internet costs.

Note that this would be money paid directly to the
U.S. Postal Service for a service they do not even provide.
The whole point of the Internet is democracy and non-interference.
If the federal government is permitted to
tamper with our liberties by adding a surcharge to email,
who Knows Where it will end. You are already paying an
exorbitant price for snail mail because of bureaucratic
inefficiency. It currently takes up to 6 days for a letter
to be delivered from New York to Buffalo. If The U.S.Postal
Service is allowed to tinker with email; it will mark the
end of the "free" Internet in the United States. One
congressman, Tony Schnell has even suggested a "twenty to
forty dollar per month surcharge on all internet service"
above and beyond the government's proposed email Charges.
Note that most of the major newspapers have ignored the
story, the only exception being the Washingtonian which
called the idea of email surcharge "a useful concept who's
time has come" (March 6, 1999) Editorial. Don't sit by and
watch your freedoms erode away! Send this e-mail to EVERYONE
on your list, and tell all your friends and relatives to
write to their congressman and say "No!" to Bill 602P.

It will only take a few moments of your time, and could very well
be instrumental in killing a bill we don't want.

Well I am still dragging on getting the new motor for my 51 F1 to replace
the 71 302 I have in it now.

I have found an 84 "High Output" 302 at a reasonable price I know an 85
would be better. I am looking for opinions on this motor.

The '84 HO 5.0 is the engine I installed in my '57 F-100. '85 would be
better, I suspect, from the performance angle as it was the first year for
the roller cam, and, I believe, it advertised about 25 or 30 more
horsepower. The Mustang sites praise the stock aluminum 4v manifolds that
came on these engines (assuming the engine you are looking at is stock
equiped), saving you the money of an after-market application. I have not
been happy with the stock Holley 4180, though, and it is going this spring.
With tube headers and 2.25" dual exhausts the engine has great power and
tows my trailer effortlessly. You may see the installation by going to and clicking on "See Mr. Toop's
Project Truck."

Can everyone discipline themselves to remove the unsubscribe
information footer from the bottom of messages when replying?
It's getting old seeing 4 of them on a multiple message reply.
If the list can't self-police themselves with this, I'll have
to set up a filter to bounce such posts.
