Stay Close To Those Sounds

The sun turns a key in a lock each day
As soon as it crawls out of bed.

Light swings open a door
And the many kinds of love rush out
Onto the infinite green field.

Your soul sometimes plays a note
Against the Sky's ear that excites
The birds and planets.

Stay close to any sounds
That make you glad you are alive.

Everything in this world is
Helplessly reeling.

An invisible wake was created
When God said to His beautiful dead lover,

Hafiz, who will understand you
If you do not explain that last line?
Well then,

I will sing it this way,

When God said to illusion,

(The Gift: Poems by Hafiz, translations by Daniel Ladinsky)

From this excellent article at Hermes Press: [stanleyscoop]

"Government is the only agency that can take a valuable commodity like paper, slap some ink on it, and make it totally worthless." -- Ludwig von Mises
"It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." -- Henry Ford

Neal Knox - Alaska Passes Vermont-Style Carry! - Wow!! [smith2004]

The Alaska Legislature passed -- and yesterday Alaska Gov. Frank Murkowski signed -- a REAL Right To Carry law.

If not disqualified from owning a gun, 90 days from now an Alaskan can drop one in her purse or tuck one under his jacket and go about their law-abiding business -- just like in Vermont.

The new law does not eliminate the state's concealed handgun permit program -- which requires training, fees and the like. Nor does it change prohibitions against carrying firearms into courthouses, schoolyards, bars and domestic violence shelters.

The governor's office told Associated Press that Alaskans could still apply for a permit in order to carry a concealed weapon in other states or to be exempt from background checks when purchasing firearms.

Mike Chambers of AP via The Anchorage Daily News - No permit needed to carry concealed guns - Verification of Mr. Knox'es report above. The governor's press release is here. The bill text is here. [smith2004]

Also signed into law was a bill to require the state Department of Public Safety to recognize all concealed carry permits issued in other states.

Justice in July is organizing a rally and march in Philadelphia this coming Independence Day (fourth of July) when Bushnev will attend the opening of the National Constitution Center. I like their graphic (below). [whatreallyhappened]

Larken Rose - Letter #3 to the Attorney General - Some good questions to John Ashcroft about the income tax. Mr. Rose does not expect an answer, and encourages you to send Herr Ashcroft your own copy of these questions.

Jeff Quinn at GunBlast - Trijicon Reflex and ACOG Optical Sights - I've been wanting a Trijicon Reflex sight for a long time, but haven't wanted to part with the $350 it takes to buy one. Good review of this and Trijicon's 4-power telescopic sight. Both are built like tanks. Both work in low light with no battery. [gunblast]
