Welcome to BobKat's Lair ®


A lair is a home; A castle; A burrow; A haven; a place where one should feel safe. To ensure our safety especially in one's lair, we have laws. And some laws cause more harm than good!

This is a good place. There's lots to see and do. It's apolitical while providing non-partisan news about politics, which we can't escape.

Check out my aquarium and feed the fish; check out my post(s), my favorite media list and the many links to websites that promote what I feel is important.

Time for the awakening...

That is what my goal is here... to present topics which highlight the plight of people. Why, 2000 years after Caesar Augustus, are we still a people being hurt? With all our advancements in technology, medicine, communications, why are we a people still being hurt? Human nature hasn't changed much, but that doesn't mean it isn't time now for that to happen, and it is undoubtedly happening - hard to see however. This blog is part of that change and a witness to it.

"DUDE... What's With Your Blog?"

 I have a friend - truly, I do, and I've been encouraging him to visit my blog. You know, when you want an objective opinion, if getting an opinion from a friend is objective, but you know what I mean... someone who wouldn't be afraid to tell me "it's bad", or "wow, cool site man!"

So my friend goes to my blog and he writes back... "way too dark man, I can't read it".

Hmmm, I wonder... is his monitor brightness turned down, or what?

The next time I saw him I asked him to clarify, please.

"It's the green text... too dark."

I'd already figured that would be his answer, when I looked at my blog with an objective eye and I changed the green to an off-white. (He still think "black on white", but I'm firm on white on black).

So I asked him to look again.

He said, "Dude, your background, it gives me a head-ache."

"What?" I ask, honestly perplexed and now wondering why my friend is feeling the way he is. I like my blog, so what's up?

He told me, "I sent you an e-mail of your blog so you can see what I see... it's just too busy; can't read half the stuff, and your background... honestly, it's not good."

Well now I was hurt, and discouraged. Until I saw the picture he sent!

OMG... I was dumbfounded! "It doesn't look like that", I told him... it looks like this:

He was surprised! 

There's a logical explanation... one that plagues many web designers... making your blog compatible with different browsers. I use Google Chrome and Firefox... my friend uses Firefox. A really old version. I just now looked at my blog in my up to date Firefox and it looked good. Explanation... his browser is too old a version to support the template I'm using.

I asked him, "were you able to read any of my posts?"

"Obsessed", he answered. "Yes, a few of them".

"Obsessed by what", I asked?

He laughed.

"You mean pot?"


Interesting I thought. "Well, you know", I told him, "I learned one must chose their battles wisely." I honestly believe cannabis prohibition is very bad policy, and it harms people in many ways, and compared to use of it, the punishments and hassles do not fit the perceived crime. American citizens are made victims by the very laws that simply don't make sense, in any way, to me. Yeah, so maybe I'm obsessed... but the simple (harmful) fact that cannabis is illegal means many law makers are equally obsessed. 

I asked my friend to update his Mozilla Firefox. I ask law makers to update the laws... stop making criminals out of people who enjoy cannabis... need I add - it is far safer than alcohol or tobacco. Regulate and Tax instead!!!
