This model letter is a tool for you to use. Please copy its contents and send to the person(s) who represent you in Congress…in the House of Representatives and in the Senate. The House Foreign Affairs Committee will meet again in September to consider this bill. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD NOW!!!

I’d email/mail my US Rep but she is Jackie Speier, the author of 2 Amendments on Military Sexual Assault in the Defense Appropriations Act, so not sure she would be the most sympathetic.

Two guesses, if I may be so bold….

1. NONE of them are the most sympathetic.

2. If you are looking for reasons not to do something, there are probably a thousand others.

The choice is yours. Life is about choices. Maybe this bill will just go away and die quietly. Maybe this is a chance you can afford to take.

[off soapbox]

Staying Positive, you can’t be sure Jackie Speier won’t be receptive. A double negative, I know, and it makes my point. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Thank you Janice B. for your dedication, courage and effort, and caring for the voiceless and oppressed. Many are upset but few actually do something.

I am not a churchy person but I am convinced that someone, somewhere – maybe up above – is watching.

Considering we have family in Belgium that have never met my fiance of 3-years … this would be an outrage!! Preparing my letters for mailing now!!!

Far be it from me to criticize those who have the courage to stand up, show up and speak up. However – I noticed that in the letter the term *sex offender* is used several times. Not *ex* or *registered* but plain *sex offender*. This is seeping into the comments here, as well. I have no criminal record but when I was a kid I stole a pack of gum. Who hasn’t. I suppose that makes me a thief. What would possess me to identify myself as such for the rest of my life? Somewhere I read how someone dealt… Read more »

I’m sure it was merely an impeccant oversight…but I do agree with you. Language is very powerful.

While I prefer to use “registrant” in place of “sex offender”, I used the more common term in this letter. We need to pick our battles. As for others, please feel free to use the term “registrant” or another term you prefer in the letters that you send. Thanks!

Just clarifying that I did not mean to criticize Janice. I am certain she chooses her words carefully, tailored to the audience and for effect. 100,000 registrants in California, 3/4 million in the country, their families, heck, all Constitution loving Americans should be and, no doubt, are eternally grateful.

I just meant to point out that language should be considered carefully since picking up bad verbal habits is very easy, but it is very difficult to break them.

Remember the time at the Thanksgiving table when you asked Aunt Edna to pass the f*cking potatoes 🙂 Anyone done that?

Ms. Bellucci: You cannot be thanked enough for your efforts. I think they are so invaluable. I don’t live in California but your efforts to control out-of-control, huge, criminal governments, will help everywhere (and of course here, you are fighting the federal government). Having said that, I also do not think the term “sex offender” should EVER be used. It is a term used by the criminal regimes that run the Sex Offender Registries and their zealot supporters. It is a term of hate and war. I understand what you are saying about “pick your battles” but I do not… Read more »

I typically use the term registrant or registered sex offender, or, because I got used to it on parole, 290. I whole heartedly agree with the sentiment, but also understand Janice’s use of the term because that will be the one most likely used by Rep. Royce himself.

When I am forced to discuss my circumstances with anyone, that is just what I refer to them as – “circumstances”, or “my situation”. I NEVER, EVER, EVER refer to myself as a “sex offender”. When explaining my circumstances, I usually say things like ‘I’m forced to register as a sex offender’, or ‘I’m subject to the sex offender registry’. I don’t even refer to myself as a “registrant”. One of the reasons is that I don’t and never have believed that I belong on the registry, and that I have slipped through a very fine, hairline crack in the… Read more »

I fully understand that, as I’m on it because of a bogus case brought a collaboration of several people who chose to “sacrifice” me for their own means. I use the term registrant because it is a simple term meaning “one who registers” rather than sex registrant, sex offender, etc.

Having been on the Registry for thirty-five years, believe me when I tell you that I’ve watched the tide rise. At first, and for twelve years, I just was registered and nothing was worse for it. Then things changed, and for about ten years I was obliged to fight a pitched battle with a certain officer in my local police department who was assigned as the SOR monitor, a job she took to with a will if not a vengeance. The other officers in her department really loathed this particular individual and made open jokes in front of me as… Read more »

Bill, just noticed the renouncing citizenship comment.

I know the proof is in the pudding, but are you under the impression you will ever be able to enter the US again? I assume you took some other citizenship. Or are you completely done with everything inside the US?

I will sneak in for three days to bury my mother when the time comes.
Other than that…..

Hey Bill, is it ok if I ask what country you moved to and how you’re treated over there?

Mexico. How am I treated?.. I am not a pedophile, nor am I a child-molester. Pedophiles and child molesters etc. live here as they do everywhere. Mexican society contains it’s problems as best as it can and much of what is splattered all over the community in the U.S. is managed on a family level here. The disintegration of the American family as the social foundation is what plagues the U.S.A. – with the Police State jumping in to fill the void. In much Mexican culture, you have three generations living under the same roof so the accumulated wisdom permeates… Read more »

Sure, I setup a temporary email address. Email me at mh@TempEmail.net
It will expire in 14 days. I’ll give you my real email address when you contact me.

Lest we digress,folks …whatever term of art you use to identify those adversely impacted by this bill – WRITE YOUR LETTERS NOW. Thank you.

Free citizens have NOT broken any international law….they have NOT been
afforded due process to restrict their freedom of travel or choice to travel …..
this reminds history when the soviet union
restricted refused east Germans to travel to
west Germany…..Berlin wall ………..this proposal is an offense against history and
an offense against mankind.
