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 DOPING OF AMERICA - PART TWO

What is a crime?
*
There are several obvious crimes; others like camping on public lands, having the front of your car too low, these are questionable, with many more. Everyday, laws are questioned, considered, enacted.
*
In the Winter of 1975 I was working the 3 - 11 shift as a custodian at a college. I had a partner and we split the building for cleaning and maintenance. I had half the basement and the second floor. We had floors to clean, restrooms, offices. The offices could be interesting, just what one sees, no snooping. I had started to write feverishly a few months previous. I happened to be discussing with a student, a story I was working on (long gone, hardly recall it). She said "you should talk with Doug, the English professor..."
*
The professor Doug she was referring to had his office on the second floor. I cleaned it. I left him something I'd written on his desk. The next night was a reply... "he'd be interested in talking..."
*
We did talk, became good friends. I consider him one of two college mentors I had between the age of 21 - 24. One issue that might be obvious is at that age sex is on one's mind, and I was lost in that dept. Professor Doug suggested Henry Miller, the author of "The Tropic of Cancer". "The World of Sex", he said, or something like that was somewhere in one of Henry Miller's many novels. I've read 90% of them. 15 years earlier you'd be sentenced to a misdemeanor for having one of his books. They were sold on the black market in brown paper bags. I was talking with the dean of another college I worked at years later and he remembered that. He remembered buying a Henry Miller book in a brown paper bag.
***
Now imagine if shagging were a bad word. What the word means is sex outside of marriage . Imagine if it's a crime. based on questionable logic? But it's a crime all the same, and millions of people are locked up and fined. Happens all the time, though not in America.
*
No, not America, but what does happen here are millions of people are locked up for drug possession, marijuana especially. There homes are raided, people shot and many killed. The sad truth is the people being raided may be your kindly neighbors, your friend, your co-worker. It's virtually an undeclared war against American citizens, declared only in a boisterous manner by President Richard Nixon in 1971. The "war on drugs" began as part of the Controlled Substances act of 1971 the Tricky Dick signed. That was also when the DEA was established... the foot soldiers masquerading as law enforcement. In truth they're a large federally mandated militia group that infiltrates the entire world, including the USA.
*
The ONDCP (office of national drug control policy) is the public relations outlet, who's job it is to simply "lie" and make stuff up that adequately espousing the dangers of "drugs", especially marijuana once again (see my media list for a link supporting this fact). US taxpayer's pay all these salaries... all the expenses. Allegedly, it keeps us safe. Allegedly it's for the public good. Allegedly... !
***
Welcome to America... the land of the doped! Where we'll believe anything, or be afraid not to, if our government tells us it's so. This is so weary a game... and it seems, it all began in 1937, the day cannabis was taxed, unconstitutionally (ruled so by the Supreme Court in 1970). The propaganda just keeps coming. The waste in wealth, human resources and life just continues unabated. 50,000 dead in Mexico our neighbor, and the prejudice continues... the same prejudice that was commonplace in the 1930's.
*
In a recent ruling in California, a federal Judge ruled against NORML's legal team re: four issues... the one I found most compelling is (click the quote for the link):
Proving "the irrationality of the Schedule One Classification..."??? Duh... Schedule on "drugs" have no medicinal value, and are extremely addictive, the NIH says so. ONDCP says so. Our own government owns a patent verifying extraordinary health benefits. (I'll post the link soon as I find it). There are pharmaceuticals based on cannabis. It's as addictive as coffee.
*
RE: Shagging... just don't get caught!
