Going Nowhere

On February 8, President Obama signed an unnecessary, cruel, and dangerous law. Passed by a unanimous Congress, International Megan’s Law requires the State Department to mark with a “unique identifier” the passport of anyone ever convicted in the United States of a sex crime against a minor. The offense could be sexting or consensual teen lovemaking. It could have happened decades ago or even have been expunged from the person’s record. Full Article

This is precisely what happend with the Jews and other despised groups of people throughout history. These kind of acts have always been the precursor to things much worse happening to groups of people maligned by a few.If anyone doesn’t believe this, just check the history books.

“Americans don’t believe a sex offender can change, so they just want to “contain” him—or better yet, banish him. Yet now that they have driven him to the edges of the land, International Megan’s Law may deny the pariah even exile.”

“To a public whose appetite for punishment is insatiable, it is not enough to forbid the sex offender to stay anywhere or go anywhere. The people’s wish, it seems, is that he would cease altogether to exist. And when he does cease to exist, that is not enough either.”

If this isn’t stopped we can expect to see or to be the victims of things much, much worse!

Seriously. Even if I ever did make it back, I would NEVER EVER EVEN THINK about carrying a laptop or any other electronic device across that border. I WOULDN’T PUT ANYTHINGGG past CBP to plant images or what have you, on devices just to convict another Sex Offender, and put him away for 80 years. They would absolutely LOVE ITTTT. Even though my conviction had nothing to do with CP and everything to do with a 17 year old who LIED ABOUT THEIR AGE, I would, not, put, anything, past, the, United, States, Government. PERIOD. ZERO TRUST.

Then you should encrypt the hard drive.

Here is a disposable email address in which you can contact me:

Indeed, I never felt like a criminal until this. I was caught up in a mess and although innocent I took a plea bargain rather than fight in court. So I did everything they asked while on probation and sailed through. I crossed all the “T”s and dotted all the “I”s and was a model citizen.

I even enjoyed the pleasures of international travel before and after my probation. I never felt like a criminal because I felt like I have some freedom…especially those times I was out of the boundaries of the USA.

Then this new International Megan’s Law sh^t passed and the one pleasure I had left and the only time I felt truly “free” has been taken from me.

I now feel like a criminal…the government has turned me into a criminal after 17 years of adding punishment after punishment regardless of how good I behaved they simply continue to add more and more punishment!

Well, now I feel like a criminal and I have started to think like one thanks to the evil government of the USA.

For centuries, civilizations steadily decreased the severity of punishments. This used to be called progress. Enlightenment,even. Then about 40 years ago the American people decided to take a u turn in history and started to increase punishments for the criminal, especially the poorer criminal. Now when dealing with people accused or convicted of sex crimes, we have gone back to the pillories, banishment, the stocks and the broad sheets. Of course, now they use advance technologies to enact the same medieval punishments. Yay progress.

The government, through it’s constituents,and society, by their votes, have created all this that is being presented as a BIG problem. I see the reality that many people, organizations and institutions are making allot of $$$$ from this. I can also say that I can see how our society/government have created all of their own problems.

With the mention of how our Government responds to the pressure of society who tries
to condemn us in every way possible…it reminds me of a co-worker I mentored back in the early 90’s.

I worked alongside a hardworking immigrant from the country of Jordan. He communicated to me that his mother was 14 years old when he was born. His father was 42 years old and his mother was 12 years of age when they were matched or married.

This is in no way attempting to justify any action of any RSO, it is simply a reflection on the moral differences of societies. In Europe it is common to see a woman’s breast on network TV.

Some of what we are condemned for…other societies consider as normal.

Now our Government, “B. H. Obama” in particular, is going to allow our country to be infiltrated with a very large population of Muslims, who do not have any problem at all
with physical sexual contact of men and women of nearly all ages.

This is not something this country is ready for. IMO

My guess is that most who condemn us for life, including the politicians, would not share with us, the “Skeletons” in their closets.

I understand that anyone who is not on a public website will not have to have their passports stamped as an offender

Bill, what you are describing will later be referred to as a loophole, and some politician will try to jump start it’s career by sponsoring legislation to “close this dangerous loophole”

Sort of like the Unregistered Sex Offender Registry that will list all those sex offenders who are no longer required to register.

I think that nations receiving US criminals should demand US passports be marked with all crimes, not just sex offenders.

Bill it really doesn’t matter if your passport is stamped or not if you can’t get into another country. This bill from what Janice has said will still notify countries even after someone no longer has to register.

Reading all of this makes me sick to my stomach, and probably not doing good things for my health either. If the Court does not clearly see the violation of human rights and due process of this new Law, and consider it BLATANTLY unconstitutional, I would seriously loose whatever shred of respect, and hope for “any kind of future”, I still have left for the United States.

If by “Government”, being the one who is oppressing us, you mean hypocritical tough-on-crime rich guys who fund these attack laws against registrants such as FaceBook, Chris Smith and John Walsh, then I would agree. That company was founded by a guy who hacked into the pics of girls/women at Harvard and used them as fodder for his cyber-bullying schemes. Where’s the push for retroactive punishment and eliminating the statute of limitations for cyber-bullying. Cyber-bullying has resulted in death. I don’t see any huge money push for states of emergency declared for cyber-bullying. It’s not some ‘black box’ form of government doing this, but specific hypocrites such as John Walsh and Mark Foley of SORNA who have no business making laws for sex registrants. Taking in muslims from Syria and Iraq is kind of the responsibility of the US since it is our war in Iraq, the one Bernie is always talking about that displaced them in the first place. The countries that have taken in the refugees such as Germany, Canada tend to have better laws on ex-sex offenders than the US. Maybe they may know something about tolerance and avoiding blanket condemnation. It would not be right to label all Americans as sex fiends because of the sex crimes committed during slavery in America in the 18th and 19th centuries. I assume you are basing your condemnation of muslims on the story of Aisha, which may or may not be true, but also needs to be viewed in light of the norms and mores of the times.

You are exactly right. Mark Zuckerberg would be at least a Level 2 Sex Offender in the state of Massachusetts, along with many others who were convicted of the very same thing Zuckerberg did.

We have come a long way since the original “Nerds” movie where the nerds installed hidden cameras in the women’s dorm and then created pie-plates with their naked images. In that case, all the nerds would be on the registry for life.

I suggest all sex offenders move to a state like Vermont, or Wyoming. Those two states have the lowest population of the fifty states. 600k and 500k respective.

With the new large segment of population of offenders in place, vote in our own members of the state legislature, and governor, then start with repealing those Draconian state laws.

Then elect federal our own members of Congress to fight these tyrants.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
