INTRODUCTION:

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.

The Meaning of PRACTICAL, and RECOGNIZING 40 Years - The War on Drugs - President Nixon... "Not A Crook".

The meaning of practical I discovered a couple of weeks ago. It was from a quote - a famous person, but it came and went, but left a legacy. Practical comes from Practice. If you practice something over and over again you become accomplished with that practice. That is the meaning of Practical.

In 1971 President Richard Nixon declared the "War on Drugs...", in particular cannabis, aka marijuana, as being "the stepping stone". I was 16. I first experienced cannabis as a medicinal herb age 19. It changed my life - without a doubt improved my life. Proof in the pudding... still plenty left!

In 1971 Nixon created the federal dept. of the DEA.

Sad day in history.

  1. Hard to believe it has been that long and is part of the Nixon legacy. I didn't know that.

  2. Thanks Slam... happy I knew something and you learned from it.

    Also of interest, from LEAP's blog, this great news:

    "The first-ever Congressional bill to let states legalize marijuana will be introduced in the U.S. House by a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers on Thursday..."

    "The bill, sponsored by Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), would essentially end the federal government's bullying of states when it comes to marijuana policy reform. Initial co-sponsors include Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO)."

    From LEAP's blog, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition: http://copssaylegalize.blogspot.com

    The bill goes further in that it will repeal cannabis prohibition by the federal government, treating it as it does alcohol and tobacco, and leaving it up to the states to regulate it's use.

    I feel bad though that Jack Herer, author of "The Emperor Wears No Clothes", and pivotal figure in debunking cannabis myths, isn't alive today to witness this event.

    Credit especially to Ron Paul for introducing this bill - considering his run for the 2012 Presidency.
