Sex Offender Policy Requirements Updated

Sex Offender Policy Requirements Updated

6-25-2012 National:

On June 12, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued Notice H 2012-11 State Registered Lifetime Sex Offenders in Federally Assisted Housing, which reiterates statutory- and regulatory-based responsibilities to prohibit admission to federally assisted housing for individuals subject to a lifetime registration requirement under a state sex offender registration program, and supersedes Notice H 2009-11. 

The new policies stem, in part, from a 2009 OIG audit, which estimated that 2,094 to 3,046 assisted households included a lifetime registered sex offender.

This notice clarifies regulations concerning admissions and strongly recommends additional steps to prevent individuals subject to a lifetime registration requirement under a state sex offender registration program from receiving federal housing assistance.

The notice further specifies that owners/agents who erroneously admitted prohibited participants after June 25, 2001 must evict that household member or terminate assistance for the entire household.

The Filthiest Joke Ever Hidden in a Children's Movie

One of the most beloved and oft-quoted moments in the ridiculously beloved and oft-quoted film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is the sequence in which the unbalanced candymaker displays his newest invention: lickable wallpaper. As the children and their guardians go to town on the wallpaper, Wonka declares: "Lick an orange. It tastes like an orange. The strawberries taste like strawberries! The snozzberries taste like snozzberries!"

We laugh, because "snozzberries" is obviously a fanciful, fictional word, and nobody knows what they really were. Except that Roald Dahl, the book's author, knew exactly what snozzberries were: They're dicks. Snozzberries are dicks. Willy Wonka made those kids lick dick-flavored wallpaper.
It turns out the guy who thought a story about an insane recluse casually murdering a group of children had a pretty fucked up sense of humor.
In 1979, Dahl decided to revisit snozzberries in his adult novel My Uncle Oswald. The equally witty and disgusting story revolves around Oswald Hendryks Cornelius, the titular uncle and "greatest fornicator of all time." Along with his sexy accomplice Yasmin Howcomely, he devises a complicated get-rich-quick scheme that involves Howcomely seducing Europe's most famous men and then selling used condoms full of their spent semen to women wishing to birth famous progeny. Please take some time to remind yourself that this book was written by one of the world's most beloved children's authors.
The term "snozzberry" comes up when Yasmin Howcomely recounts her experience with George Bernard Shaw:
"How did you manage to roll the old rubbery thing on him?"
"There's only one way when they get violent," Yasmin said. "I grabbed hold of his snozzberry and hung onto it like grim death and gave it a twist or two to make him hold still."
"Very effective."
"I'll bet it is."
"You can lead them around anywhere you want like that."
"I'm sure."
"It's like putting a twitch on a horse."
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was written in 1964, 15 years before My Uncle Oswald revealed that the wallpaper was made to taste like the head of a penis. In the strictest sense of the term, we're pretty sure this makes Willy Wonka a pedophile. And honestly, we're not that surprised.
Anthony Scibelli is a handsome stand-up comedian and comedy writer.

Wisconsin Woman Abused Process in Sex Offender Fight

Wisconsin Woman Abused Process in Sex Offender Fight

POSTED: Wednesday, June 20, 2012 --- 11:40 a.m.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A state appeals court says a Grafton woman abused the legal process when she filed a complaint against a sex offender's family.
Barbara Patterson put up fliers in 2009 announcing her neighbor, Wanda Keller, had decided to let her sex offender son move in. The Keller family began receiving prank phone calls and drivers started gawking at their house.
After the family warned Patterson they planned to sue her, Patterson filed a complaint alleging family members threatened her.
The family filed a lawsuit alleging invasion of privacy, defamation and abuse of process.
A judge dismissed all three claims, but the 2nd District Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that Patterson did abuse the process, saying she exaggerated her threat claims.
Patterson's attorney didn't immediately return a message.

Just a Few Words About the Wisconsin Recall

I have gotten several messages about our recent recall election here in Wisconsin. Some criticizing the re-election of Scott Walker. For those that do not live in the state of WI and do not pay the taxes here know far less than the media has told you about life here. 

Also those that believed that a mistake was made re-hiring Walker to finish the term he started do not realize the progress our state has made in balancing our budget and LIVING WITHIN OUR MEANS as a state. Unlike our parent Federal Government which seems to be like a college kid with a pocket of No Credit Limit Credit Cards, spending like there is no tomorrow and assuming that money grows on trees. The opponent that was up against Walker was the ex-mayor of Milwaukee, WI. In his first year as mayor he raised the city's taxes by 45%, also along side that increase the unemployment rate increased by 28%. This is not a track record ANYONE would like to see repeated at the state level.

All politicians have skeletons, the vast majority of them can not be trusted because one has to make a lot of promises to get to that level of politics and to suceed in that arena. This does not mean I condone their flaws, but when one is looking at the BIG PICTURE, they have to realize that you will never get everything you want out of a politician. It just isn't humanly possible. So while I may not agree with out Walker has conducted business throughout his life or how he does certain things now, but when picking between the lesser of two evils, he does more for the economy (you know money makes the world go 'round) than Barrett ever could. Besides Walker's political party wasn't the one that ran off and hid in a neighboring state to avoid having to do their jobs. Could any of you just not show up for work, still get paid, and expect to have your job when you returned? Those representatives should have lost their jobs, like anyone else would have.

Wisconsin Law Reform is about reform but not for one party or another, but for the people, for they are the government, not those overpaid politicians, they just aren't worth it.
