Within your "Pure Deaf" vlog posting, there is no comment log for anyone to leave comment.
You asked us whether we should trust Democrats (the Democratic Party) or not due to the Early Hearing Intervention Detection (EDHI) on the federal level (Sen. Hillary Clinton, the leading sponsor of this federal bill for the re-authorization of EDHI) and Wisconsin Democratic
Party legislative majority voted for the legislation to make the mandatory requirement for private health insurance to cover the expense of cochlear implant surgery for deaf youngsters below age of 18.
No matter what the political affiliation or party what the Deaf America ought to embrace. At least, the Wisconsin Democratic establishment leave the sour tastes among deaf Americans.
We could do several things like taking the press conference to display our party affiliation switch
to Republicans and Independents to show the Democratic Party how we, the Deaf America really feel about the Democratic Party so far.
Tear out our voter registration paper with "Democrat" on it in very public way (televised press conference) across the United States and the commonwealth as a symbolic action to show real disgusts with the Democratic Party for taking the dignity and well-being of deaf people.
Deaf youngsters below the legal age of 18 really have no sayings or much choice in the matter of inhumane and forced cochlear implant surgery. Does the parents of deaf youngsters know best for their deaf offspring? Nope!
We must send letters to the National Democratic Party and the media outlets about our own
feelings toward Democrats for violating the human rights within deaf babies and youngsters.
We could publicly root for Republican and independent candidates against Democrat candidates to teach the Democrats the big-time lesson!
Deaf people could run for the public offices. I also think about running for the Florida gubernational office (Governor) or U.S. Senate for the vacancy seat of Republican Martinez. I have not ruled it out yet.
I would urge more and more deaf people switch their party affiliations to "Independent" for the real movement within Deaf America to protect our own linguistic and cultural identity from being further compromised.
Cochlear implant surgery on deaf babies and youngsters without their consents or permission are clearly the human rights violation in many ways. Every children should be not treated as some kind of private property or accessory.
The Democratic Party have played the games with the gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual (GLBT) community for many years which the GLBT voters are very feeble to cast the ballots for Democratic candidates.
I am not saying that the Republican Party is the best option for the Deaf America or the GLBT community.
We would be better off with the multi-party political system in the United States of America than the party duopoly! Ralph Nader is absolutely right about the appalling state of our elected representative.
Governor Doyle and the Wisconsin Democratic Party just ride off the most popular issue on the health care for political reasons. They will dearly pay the cost for screwing up the Deaf America especially deaf Wisconsin youngsters and babies. Let's make them sweat, squeal and beg for our votes by overturning the recent passage of legislation on CI surgery.
Why deny any deaf adult (latened deaf) such an option to restore their precious hearing abilities? Those deaf adults do pay their health insurance, not deaf children! That is real looney tunes on the part of the Wisconsin Democratic Party and Governor Doyle!
Mike McConnell and Robert Underhill of "Deaf Republicans" must join our Deaf America battles against the Wisconsin Democratic Party and national Democratic Party since the Democrats infringed on the free market's right to assess and decide the cost of provided service.
Or Mike McConnell and Robert Underhill will be seen as the untrue Republicans if they do not done anything to support our causes against the Wisconsin and national Democratic Party.
We must tar and feather (rhetoric) the likes of Jamie Berke and other CI proponents' blogs and vlogs to show our displeasure with those individuals.
