Too Important to Ignore This One ...

There are the growing resentment toward disabled people getting the front row seats across America as what the MSNBC Twitter mentions 15 hours ago -

Not able to read or view the enclosed blog and video regarding this subject.

I do not know if this MSNBC video refers to the so-called special privilege for deaf people getting the front row seats without paying any exclusive seating cost in demand.

I am sure that too many hearing people resent such idea of seeing "able-bodied" deaf individuals come in and grab the front seat rows without paying any kind of "supply and demand" prices.

Of course, deaf people need to get in the front seat rows due to the visual means for keeping up with the American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters.

No questions about deaf people with visible CI devices on their heads caused such resentment among hearing people asking themselves - "Why deaf people with CI or digital hearing aids help these people such ability to hear and get the front seat privileges?"

You could see how and why the CI (cochlear implant) and expensive digital hearing aids footed by the taxpayers and health insurance companies really hurt deaf people as a homogeneous group and cause such societal backlashes against us in general.

CI, digital hearing aids and the influxes of various communication methods from SEE, LOVE, PSE (Language Contact), Cued Speech and AVT created by audists as a sole purpose of dividing our deaf community into the Tower of Babel with communications and unnatural & artificial devices to weaken our cohesive standings for political, social and economic power.

Just think about that! I am still keeping my words of leaving the DeafRead until circumstance changes for me.

I, Robert L. Mason known as "RLMDEAF" or "RLM", regretfully inform you, my readers that I am leaving the DeafRead for several reasons, ex.

Systematic censorship on DeafRead which too many of my blog postings never manage to get published by the DeafRead to reach the wide audience like you, all.

I really sometimes do not understand WHY handful of my blog postings never get published without any explaination from the DR editors.

Many editors in general, usually inform the writer why hir article will be not published, etc.

I want my blog postings to be "uncensored" without any fear for not able to pass the DR's editorship. I often restraint my thoughts and expression so I could get my blog postings published on the DR.

I often wonder why too many "unworthy" blog postings of mine tend to get published while other "worthy" ones hardly get published.

I rather get my own blog posting published without making any concessions, concerns and limits.

I will explore what will be my next option for getting my thoughts and expertise in gathering information and facts for my loyal readers.

I want to thank every of you make my blog postings to be much possible. I truly appreciate your faithful readership for about five years.

promoting James Kittell's latest ASL Media publication - "What Audiologists Tell You ..."

Let's REVOLT against Ridor and his loyalists protecting the empire of lies, deceits, manipulations, fear mongerings, smear campaigns, threats, character assassinations

Issues about Intentionally Blank Page on Deaf Books

James Kittell and Ridor tried to spin the damage control with the issue of claims to "intentionally blank pages" in the nonfiction book - "What Audiologists Tell You ......", but other books usually have the blank pages at the end of book for some kind of purpose to scribble down thoughts, etc.

Look at this enclosure -

Ridor and James Kittell of ASL Media ought to put the disclaimer on the front of book or put it on the ASL Media website.

Nearly $15 dollars for more than 50 pages of blank page warranted the real "train robbery" on part of Ridor and James Kittell, the queen of scammers across the Deaf America.

ASLMedia ought to reduce the price of "What Audiologists Tell You ..." book to less than two dollars per book or get the hundred of book copies off the market by avoid the defrauding Deaf America.

One extremely nice and sweet deaf lady strongly felt in her own word - "I feel FOOLISH" for buying the ASL Media's latest book -

Here is Ridor's vlog comment in response to Zurfer which he call us, deaf people "DUMB"
and consider hearing people to say "CLEVER!". $15 dollars???

Ridor's Ethical Lapses with ASL Media Book Promotion

More and more of us, Deaf America begin to see "increasingly ethical lapses" within Ricky Taylor aka Ridor9th, deaf vlogger and the ASL Media, Inc when come to the slealth book promotion on his YouTube posting.

Ridor haven't been honest with the Deaf America when come to his regular vlog entries. He stealthily peddled James Kittell's latest ASL Media publication , "What Audiologists Tell You..." without disclosing his true nature and positron with Kittell.

Is Ridor a paid employee of the ASL Media, Inc or what? If yes, Ridor ought to come clean with his viewers that he apparently have the contract or informal agreement with the ASL Media, Inc.

Why Ridor being present at the ASL Media. Inc. table for people to come down and purchase the latest book release - "What Audiologists Tell You ..."? Techinically, Ridor would be seen as an employee of ASL Media, Inc. if he is being present at the ASL Media, Inc.

Ridor ought to be real careful when come to the product promotion on his YouTube postings for commerical purpose -

Are Ridor and Kittell Frauding "Deaf America"?

Are Ridor and James Kittell committing any fraudulent practices when come to the retailing of ASL Media's latest book?? Look at the enclosed YouTube video of what the deaf lady found in that book!

According to the federal and handful of state and local laws to protect customers from being deceived by any retailers or business. Look up what do you have the customer rights under those laws -

First of all, contact the ASL Media via James Kittell first to inquire why either of you find out that there are blank pages in "What Audiologists Tell You ..." nonfiction book and get the full refund free ASL Media materials for emotional distress and inconvenience for cost of your precious time and gas commuting. You still are entitled to free book from the ASL Media.

If the ASL Media fails to do, please contact the state attorney general office in your state immediately. That is a serious matter for distressed customer being deceived by the ASL Media and Ridor9th, deaf vlogger! Stand up for your customer rights.

Another deaf victim of the ASL Media, Inc had been not given any purchased materials as what she paid for the customer product and never received them!

Hope get book from ASL Media

Other questionable issue involved "trustworthiness" of the ASL Media from UK

Look at James Kittell's damage control video regarding the latest book!

In Defense of Ken Davis, Deaf

First of all, Ken Davis NEVER, NEVER, NEVER claim to be a journalist. Davis is purely a news jockey to deliver his ponficiations (opinion, commentary) which he have much right as other vloggers and bloggers.

In the seas of Internet, there are too many unfiltered news reportings like Perz Hilton, very influential news shaker or Matt Drudge with many inaccurate news reportings.

Deaf NEVER, NEVER claimed to be the credible journalism or newsreporting. Ken Davis just use "NEWSPAPER" as a reminder of many fine deaf newspapers and "Little Family" tablets among deaf schools until 1950s.

Newspaper itself as a term meant printing news on cheap paper sheets. Ken Davis's "Deaf have to do nothing with the existence of newsprint paper sheets. His commentary/op-ed comes with the use of visual materials. Ken Davis do not hide behind the anonymous blog aggregator like Gina Sutton aka Candy. Ken came openly with his face and
ASL signings. Deaf America know that Ken Davis's news vlog postings really are not "newspaper".

Ken Davis would be properly called "columnist" or "op-ed" to share his thoughts. Davis's interpretation of the "AB 2072" coming from his own GUT FEELING what the AB 2072 bill really meant to him in personal way. Davis could see what the AB 2072 bill would lead to the next thing like the systematic path to quicker and easier implementation of getting deaf child to be cochlearized implanted thru the so-called gatekeepers' titled influences (audiologists and AVT greedy carpetbaggers).

Almost all newsreportings come with bias no matter how much we deny ourselves!

From what many deaf people across America get the first impression of the "AB 2072" bill after learning their experience with the "Early Hearing Detection Intervention" federal law known as EDHI.

At first, the Deaf America welcome the EDHI with open arms or no objections. Deaf Americans finally realized what the EDHI was really all about widening the path for the medical community to put the cochlear implants on many deaf babies and children as they could get on our deaf people.

Deaf Americans originally thought that the EDHI will be very helpful for parents to identify their deaf children and get them educated at early age, but they see the EDHI differently. More and more and more deaf babies and children ended up getting the CI, not introducing them to the world of deaf education. Deaf Americans had enough with the misleading intentions of so-called laws.

So the Deaf California rose against the AB 2072 bill since the deaf community NEVER got consulted on any legislative bills which greatly affected them as a social and linguistic community.

Deaf California and the Deafhood movement do NOT lose their face at all. They done very brillant political brinkmanships to defeat the AB 2072 bill by adding the lead metals on bill itself to sink and get vetoed. They were against the AB 2022 bill all the way while Barry Sewell, Mike McConnell, Candy and others flip-flopped on that bill through the whole process.

From the beginning, the "California Coalition" sleathly pushed for the AB 2072 bill thru Rep. Tony Mendoza without any inputs from the Deaf California community. The AB 2027 supporters among Barry Sewell, Mike McConnell, Candy and others along with the California Coalition GOT
EGGS ON THEIR FACES in the end, NOT the AB 2072 opponents.

Deaf California and Deafhood supporters were brilliantly played the California Legislature and Governor "Terminator" like the "Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby" folkfore.

Every of us could see who are outsmarted, outmanuevered, outwitted by the cultural and linguistic community with little money and humanpower. Deaf California and Deafhood supporters are the real 'Brer Rabbit" while the California Coalition, California Legislative
and Governor "Terminator" were the 'Brer Fox".

"Brer Rabbit" Deaf Community thumped and thumped and hopped and hopped in real joy to
defeat the AB 2072 bill thru brillant manuvering against the finanical Golitah - greedy audiologists, money-hungry CI manfacturers and exploitive AVT schools, clueless legislators
and budget-conscious Governor with the Kennedy name heavily hung on his neck especially Maria Shriver squeezed Arnie's balls.

Deaf America did outsmart, outwit and outmanuever the Hearing Establishment with the Deaf President Now 1988 protest, the Unity for Gallaudet 2006 protest and the Ab 2072 bill opposition all over again.

Mike McConnell denounced the Unity for Gallaudet 2006 protest and the AB 2072 bill opposition. Mikey and Barry Sewell and Candy and White Ghost were the ones whose got
eggs on their faces!

Ken Davis is also the Brer' Rabbit. Never underestimate the former deaf minister like Ken Davis. He is not really a dumb guy! Ken Davis is a great Deaf American with his stylish ASL signings! Look forward more of Ken Davis in the near future!

Who get the last laughs?? Of course, Deaf America! We laugh so hard on the floor and amuse at ourselves how we are really brilliant. Audists are real dummies along with Mike McConnell, Barry Sewell, Candy and White Ghost!

Are Deaf American Children Being An Experimental Rat?

More and more U.S. government's past experiments on human beings are revealed lately.

Worst of all, the U.S. government conducted very unethical and illegal human experiments outside the country on unsuspected individuals without their consents.

So the fair question is asked among us, Americans whether our deaf children are being
experimented without their consents like the forced cochlear implant surgery on very
young deaf infants and youths. Why our own U.S. government are so interested in doing
the social engineering of eradicating the existence of deaf people badly?

Political conservatives like Mike McConnell and Barry Sewell would lash out at the media revelations about such unethical human experiment on human beings by the federal
government of the past.

Mike McConnell and Barry Sewell and other deaf Republicans never done anything about the
real wasteful spendings on the study of deaf people's genetics and cochlear implant development
within the National Institute of Health cost the American taxpayers billion and billion dollars.

Provide all the necessary tools for successful education and cultural/linguistic embraceness toward deaf youngsters are the real key to lead the productive and independent lives, NOT the use of CI or other systematic tools to keep deaf youngsters from reaching their true potentials.

The cochlear implant testings on human beings went back to the 1940s and 1950s. The latest discovery about AGB conducted the failed CI experiments back in early 1900s.

Harold Crane, the loyal blog reader of mine sent me this newspaper article about the latest study on the quality of life among deaf youth CI users whether the device really help them or not.

New Captioning Law in Maryland!

This new landmark law in Maryland give much-needed rights to deaf people in the public area.

So the providers via public area could not deny any deaf individual upon their request to turn on the captions, ex. bars, coffeehouses, resturants and other public places.

*Waving hands* to the Deaf Marylanders for their hard work and effort to make this new law happen.

We finally are treated as equal citizens like everyone else in the public area!

Mike McConnell surely will criticize this new law as some kind of big-government regulation shove down the providers via public area. Or seen it as a costly incentives for business to accompany the needs of deaf patrons or customers?

You, all Deaf America know how Mike McConnell and Barry Sewell are against anything that really benefit the Deaf Citizenry. That's why Deaf America must not vote for Republicans this year to teach them for being an obstructionists so far!

Why We Would Not Worry About CA Legislative Override

Thursday, September 30, 2010, 12:41 pm Pacific Time

UPDATED FLASH--AB 2072 Vetoed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

According to an authoritative source within the California Senate staff, it is still technically possible that the California Legislature could override Gov. Schwarzenegger's veto of AB 2072. However, this is highly *unlikely* to happen, since there has not been a successful attempt to override a governor's veto in California since 1979.

Theoretically, the Legislature has 60 days to override the current governor's veto of AB 2072, which means that the last possible day it could be overridden is Sunday, November 28, 2010.

Two days later on November 30, 2010, the Legislature will adjourn "sine die", which means that the session will be completely finished, and no bills at all from that session could be overridden after that. Legislators would only have the option of reintroducing a bill in January 2011, at which time it would be considered a new bill and be given a different number.

The last bill to be overridden in California was AB 570, titled: "An act to amend Section 1643 of the Insurance Code, relating to insurance". That bill was originally introduced by Assemblymember Pappen on Feb. 16, 1979 and was passed out of the Legislature on May 25, 1979, then vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown on June 9, 1979, the same Jerry Brown who is currently running again for governor of California, 27 years after he left the office in 1983.

The Legislature successfully overrode the governor's veto on July 12, 1979.Previous to AB 580 in 1979, there was another bill successfully overridden in 1979 which was SB 91, originally introduced by Senator Al Alquist (the husband of current Senator Elaine Alquist).Previous to that, SB 155 was successfully overridden in 1977.

Yes, too many people commit larcency anyway like people forget to pay for stuff and walk out of the store. Or commit such money fraud thru Internet, etc. Let's see and wait to see what the judicial outcome will be. Ridor need to learn how to behave in the court of law. He could be boorish and act inapproriate in defy of the judicial process. Most important of all is to cooperate with the judge or magistrate and act cordial and submissive as only the way to get thru the judicial system. I got too many email messages from deaf people all over the country CHEER to see Ridor being in jail. How contradicatory for Ridor being arrested in time for the Deafhood workshop down in Richmond. Many deaf people poured out their hatred for Ridor to his kid brother, Gary at the Deaf Night Out in DC last September 3rd.

Barb DiGi, with due respect, Ridor's arrest and imprisonment are not the rumor, but really existed. No questions about Ridor's arrest and imprisoment are real news which people deserve to know what is going on with Ridor.Ridor choose to be... a public figure as blogger and vlogger. He is a real celebrity among us, deaf people. People are people savoring such celebrity news anyway. Too bad about our nowaday society have no no no privacy left. That's what our world is all about now! The news of Ridor's arrest & imprisonment probably will give more attention to what occurs with the judicial system for deaf people. I really do not know what is Jason's agenda of posting such info about Ridor's arrest.Jason did not respond to my FB message since he is too busy with his schoolwork. I was told that Jason was visibly uncomfortable giving out report about Ridor being arrested and jailed on his vlog. I haven't seen his YouTube vlog posting yet. If someone deaf break the law, then the info surely will be the public info (the public's right to know). The police reports are open to the public anyway. That is nothing to do with the concept of Deafhood to keep people from knowing if someone deaf do something unlawful. People naturally love to gossip, spread news as part of our own humanity as research studies show. Gossip itself is part of our own human mechanism for the social conformity to keep people in line regarding their behaviors. I am very glad that you urge people not to make any conclusions about Ridor until the courtroom verdict. I am sure that Ridor would do same thing about informing others about someone deaf being arrested or prior convictions. Ridor did issue out personal info about other deaf people.

Diane Squires Robert, Deaf Community is extremely small and ... Sadly his reputation is already ruined. Let's focus how good person he is. Ridor makes many excellent vlogs and challenges us to think. If he has his own personal issues not related to us. Who cares.

Diane, I already said "larcency and contempt of court" what Ridor had been arrested for. I will talk to the District Attorney tmw morning or this week to find out why Ridor being charged, etc. Every arrests usually shared with legal barracu...das (lawyers) for them to make $$ out of lawyer hirings. That would be very interesting development with Ridor's arrest and imprisonment. News are news. Mike McConnell is right about one thing - bloggers and vloggers are in the shark-infested water smelling for bloods (worthy news to report). Journalistic newsreportings are in my blood anyway. I have been carefully walking on the tightrope when come to deaf newsreportings for very long time. I could see that many deaf people are in long line for payouts what Ridor done to them over years. I put up with Ridor for many years. For example, Ridor recently called me "slut" on my blog posting which I wrote very nice posting about Ridor. He doesn't want people to know that he asked and asked me for $$$. I did give him generous $$$ which he never bother to pay me back or thank me. At first, I never mention about Ridor asked me for $$ until he said "I never like you!" I had a last straw with him which I always treated him with respect over years. I helped Ridor out on generous terms, but he still smeared me with false info like "slut" and "pedophile" on his blog.Me, slut or pedophile? Oh my God! Ridor got resentful toward me which I slept with several Gallaudet male students half the age of mine in the 90s and 2000s. I never was interested in sleeping with younger guys ,but those guys threw themselves at me. Ridor had no right to smear me in any way. I brushed off young guys often, but some Gallaudet fellows threatened me "No more friends if you do not have sex with me". I was drunk at that time. I subjected to their threats. Yes, I had problems with the Doormat Syndrome myself of being too nice guy. I guess that karma comes to Ridor for what he done to people in general.See More

Diane Squires Robert - This is how Ridor does in his vlogs. Like actors, artists, comedians and more. I only focus on him as a smart mouthed talented vlogger. I don't care about his personal life and all that. For example -- I personally don't like Tom Brady as a person however I like him as a great QB football player. Am I clear?

Ridor never apologize to me for what he done to me and others. He have to pay for his own deeds. Ridor exposed someone's HIV status (bgarmon8) on his YouTube vlogs. What to do with someone's personal life. Ridor is very hyprocritical about ...not submitting any personal info about others, but he did, did, did! I personally know bgarmon8 vlogger. He is incredibly nice person, but Ridor reduced him to something monstrous and called many people "retarded". Ridor smeared my good name with falsehoods for many years as what many Gallaudet students came forward to inform me what he said shitty things about me. What I done anything to Ridor? Nothing! Ridor's sister, Hedy told me not to give her own brother any money at all. Hedy shared horror stories about Ridor when they grew up. Whoa! Ridor need to learn how to be diplomatic and respectful toward others.You and others are feeding on the misery of others from Ridor's hateful behaviors like people keep buying shitty stuff like the National Enqurier. Anyone do not deserve any falsehoods or smeared info to be untruthful.Too many people are afraid of Ridor's wrath. Too many deaf people have to give $$$ to Ridor or he will chew them out on his blog/vlog. I gave $$ to Ridor to help out any deaf fellows. He took advantage of my generosity and decency. Talented vlogger? Plz!!!! His only talents are spewing the worst of humanity, not bring out best out of us! Ridor chewed Jane Fernandes for personal reasons. Many Gallaudet staffers and professors knew the ugly side of Ridor. They felt whew for Ridor leaving the Gallaudet campus. Ridor was well-known for airing anyone's dirty laundry if someone refuse to subcumb to his wishes. Ridor emailed me via VAX system in the 90s and asked me for SEX! I replied nicely - "I am not a kind of person for sleeping around". Guess what? Ridor caused chaos within my housemaetes from his Gally dormitory. Other housemates and I lived off the campus as a returning student. I couldn't believe it at all like Ridor announced that my housemates are closeted gays.Not true! My housemates were very shocked what Ridor done to them. Ridor pressured other deaf guys to show their own private parts . What kind of person he was! Ridor told many people about my personal life, ex. sexual orientation. Uh-huh! I never seen myself as a gay person at all. I'm just Robert L. Mason. Ridor waltzed into me at Gally library and accused me of backstabbing him. I said "What?" He never asked me if I done any badmouthing of him during my years as a returning student. Just blured out accusation in front of people in very public way. *shaking head in disbelief* Ridior said that he filed complaint against me at the Student Life. I went to see the Student Life to find out what Ridor filed against me. Guess what? Nope! Sue Hanhran with the Student Life was very furious - "RICKY TAYLOR RICKY TAYLOR RICKY TAYLOR". She asked me if I want her to talk to Ricky and tell him to stop very childish and immature behavior. I said 'No out of fear what Ridor will do next to me". I really could not wait to see Ridor being dragged into the prison cell for guys with HIV to tear out his hole (rectum) for what he done to me and others! I often wish that I could stomp on Ridor, but I am a lawful person. I have to say "FUCK YOU, DIANE" for rooting for someone who destroy too many people's falsehoods. I admire your honesty anyway. I am glad that people know me, real Robert as a nice guy. Ridor ever badmouthed my deaf mother "I hear that many people do not like your mother". People love my grandmother moer than your mother". He got info from just one person without checking out mutliple sources. Oh my God! Ridor done the same thing to deaf person I respect for many years. He blasted this deaf person without talking to the person first to see his side, etc. Ridor hurt too many people in general. He have to be stopped and changed his style to be a better person for sake of humanity.See More

I know Ricky Taylor personally. He used to be my roommate while working as a summer camp counselor. We hung out a lot while I was in Gallaudet. I can attest to you that he is not a good person. He is very negative. The problem I see from hi...m is he is very bright, but he does not give back to the community for continuing war of words with people by blogging and vlogging. He also like to spread lies or embarrassing gossip about someone. We are better than him. Who would ever forget him talking about a guy paying him to shit on his chest? Would I respect a friend for that? Why should it be different for him? Let's move it from there. Ricky Taylor, aka Ridor, live or die, that I don't care.

Deaf-Friendly Clinic Shut Down!

The "Deaf-friendly" clinic in Miami Lakes, FL (Miami area) recently closed down due to lack of regular deaf clients and not enough people to keep the clinic running. It just opened few months ago

The staffers seems not really fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). They just fairly sign.

That Should Be Our Own New Project !

We should do this kind of longtitude study project of seeing if the squirrel will be successfully turned into the real cat apply to the deaf child and hearing audists' expectation.

Look at this very interesting video without captions to put yourself in such an imaginable position -

ASL Film's "Black Sand" Reviews & Tibidts

Mark Wood surely emerge as the Deaf "Oscar Micheaux" which Wood and the ASL Films Production brought us series of ASL-centered entertainment films from "Forget Me Not" to the latest film release, "Black Sand".

The recent film screening of "Black Sand" at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD), Washington, DC as part of fundraising event for the MSSD Alumni Association this September 10th and 11th, 7pm. The MSSD auditorium was pretty packed.

The ASL Films production always support the organizations of the deaf across America by splitting 70 percent to 30 percent from ticket sales.

ASL Film's "Black Sand" was pretty entertaining film. Wanna see the film again!

RLMDEAF decide not to spoil the prospective viewers with any details or hints. Preferably let you, deaf audience to see the film first before we have the discussion forum about the ASL Film's "Black Sand".

The ASL Film's enclosed film synposis really enough for the would-be deaf viewers to get the whole idea what the film is all about.

Mark Wood, the film director and several cast members of "Black Sand" made their surprise appearance on the MSSD Auditorium to field the questions about the film after the film screening.

The first question was from me, RLM about whether Chris B. Corrigian really became a professional actor. Chris replied "Yes, I had been performed the stage works before attending Gallaudet. I recently graduated from Gallaudet and went back to my acting roots (phrase)".

Mark Woods answered an question about how long to complete the pre-film and post-film production. "7 months".

Someone asked Mark Wood about the film script writing. Woods wanted to do something different with the real complicated storyline and character development (loose phrase), instead
of spoon-feeding the audience throughout the entire film.

RLM asked another question about one female character with interesting physical feature, especially the human hair whether it was natural or being done with special makeup. The deaf actress replied "The makeup person helped with the character image".

Other questions aimed at Mark Wood and cast members. Chris Corrigan shared his delightful experience with the hearing guy, who appeared in "Black Sand" as a caretaker. How the hearing male cast changed dramatically from the wooden person to "largely expressive person with easy time of doing the communication gestures. The deaf actress told how wonderful for the hearing lady being truly shy to the real delight to have her around the set. In the end, hearing lady played the housekeeper still shy about seeing herself on the film during the editing process.

The entire "Black Sand" cast members and production crew had a real wonderful time in Costa Rica during the filming.

RLM asked Mark Wood the direct question after the Q & A's session what will be his next film project. Wood replied "I do not know yet".

Look forward to more "ASL Film" production in near future! Mark Wood is definitely our "Oscar Micheaux"

Oh boy, the latest drama within California's "AB 2072 bill", the enclosed letter from the California Audiologist Association (CAA) to Rep. Tony Mendoza.

So you could see for yourself with your OWN EYES what the true colors of audiologists and the California Coalition are all about, especially the deaf detractors and naysayers and deaf traitors.

Jesus Christ, audiologists do not possess any college degree in Deaf Education or the Education of the Deaf (preferable term). They claimed to be an educational expert for deaf children. *rolling eyes in disbelief* NOTHING NEW ABOUT AUDIOLOGISTS in general!

Interesting Twist About Latest AB 2072 Bill

There are interesting twists within the latest AB 2072 bill. The audiologist lobbying group are lobbying against the current AB 2072 bill to show the TRUE COLORS among the California Coalition. Those audiologists do NOT want to be restricted in any way to fatten their sale commissions for getting deaf babies and kids on the assembly line to be branded with CI.

Someone like Miss Kat's Parents, Gina Sutton aka Candy, Mike McConnell, Barry Sewell, Russell the Deaf Bunny and Eddie Raynon are really CLUELESS about the real purpose and intention why the AB 2072 bill introduce to the California Legislature.

Here is the e-mail exrpect from the Deaf California -

Assembly Rules has confirmed that they are expecting to find an interpreter for
tomorrow and are waiting for confirmation from the interpreting agency.
Rene Bayardo (aide to Mendoza) states that 2072 will probably be voted on tomorrow
morning, with a high degree of probability, if the interpreter is confirmed.
The audiologists assoc's lobby is probably attempting to sway members to vote no.

AB 2072 16 YES 8 NO, BUT ..............

The recent California Senate voted 16 YES and 8 NO for the AB 2072 bill, but not fully known if the quorum being met or what.

Karen Kingrey told me that if the votes go up to 21 for YES. That might be possible for the passage of the AB 2072 bill. Only 24 out of 40 California Senators.

Several state senators repeatedly acknowledged "ASL" as a true language and part of the Deaf community.

If the AB 2072 bill get approved by the California State Senate. The bill will be on the desk of Governor Arnie, who is an Austrian (Austria) like Adolf Hitler, Austrian native himself.

Governor Arnie had the special friendship with the ex-Nazi murderer in the past. Many people questioned how possible for Arnie to say that he never seen such Nazi atriocities in his home country.

VP Dan Quayle's Son ,Ben Quayle Learned ASL in the 90s

Ben Quayle, the eldest son of the former Vice President Dan Quayle, currently run for the U.S. House of Representative seat in Arizona.

I completely forgot about Ben Quayle learned handful of ASL with some deaf postal workers at the U.S. Senate's own Post Office in the tunnels between the Russell and Dirksen Senate building in the early 1990s. I encountered the teenage Ben Quayle at that post office when I found out that someone from the post office did not pick up the mail pouch for an overnight mail. I had to take some fucking mail to the Senate post office distribution system to see that particular mail being sent out of the system.

One of the deaf postal employee eagerly introduced me to Ben Quayle. I replied "That is you, Dan's son working here as what I read from the Roll Call newspaper". He smiled and fingerspelled "B-E-N". I said "Nice to meet you!" That deaf employee and Ben playfully horseplayed after the near end of the workday with ASL signings.

I said to myself "Sheesh, VP Quayle got his teenage son working at the post office. Fine example of family connection and neoptism!"

I wonder whether Ben Quayle still know some ASL or not. Does Ben Quayle have a good impression of deaf people or knowledge of deaf people? I dunno know.

Ben Quayle have been in the a lot of news coverage lately since he ran to his mommy and daddy to tell the Republicans please stop slandering and bashing their own son.

I also never forgot how culturally backward VP Dan Quayle was with the Tim Burton's "Batman" film. Dan was totally shocked when he took Ben to see "Batman" and found the different Batman - more violent and sadistic than the campy Batman tv show in the 1960s.

Don't Dan Quayle keep up with the cultural and social events like Frank Miller's "Dark Knight" comic very popular in the late 1980s which Tim Burton's "Batman" film was largely based on?

Ever Dan Quayle famously mispelled "p o t o t e s" for potatoes. He ever corrected the schoolchildren by writing " p o t o t e s" on the school blackboard. Amen to Dan.

The upcoming legal case involves with the legality of anonymous author/commentators to be illegal within the constitutional issue. We, the Americans will face the changed nature of Internet to forbade the "anonymous" author/commentators.

One online blogger wrote such "convincing" article about President Obama being a secret member of the gay sex club in Chicago. The major problem is the alias name of Russian journalist like Candy. (Will post the enclosure about Obama's so-called gay ravenous in Chicago by letting the older gentlemen done the fetallio on Obama's dingy in the end of this blog posting. Okay?) This article have been pretty dismissed by many people about the so-called credibility of sources and other stuff.)

Candy done again with the plucking of the AB 2072 opposition's outreach materials for the California Senate not to vote on the AB 2072 bill, etc.

Candy did post the pdf attachment, but she knew that people read her blog posting WITHOUT BOTHERING to check out the attached link or READ the attachment.

Here is the full portion of the AB 2072 opposition's material for California Senators -

4. The opposition to AD 2072 refuse to work with Mendoza.
The Deaf community is the community of people who are the most impacted by this bill and we were not even contacted when Mendoza first authored this bill. We have met with Mendoza andhis Legislative Director. Rene Bayardo. at least twice each month in addition to email correspondence. It wa during the first meeting with Mr. Mendoza that we learned that although he authored AB 2072, he wa not able to explain what each of the communication options listed inhis bill (cued speech and total communication) were. Hence, we took the opportunity to educate him and rayed in touch with him regarding provisions in the bill, especially since we are the community oE people most impacted y this bill and ar the community of people who were not included in the first place when this bill was first authored.

Candy surely know how to TWIST things around by skipping "and we were not even contacted when Mendoza first authored this bill.

Please double-check out every source all the deaf detractors and jesters when they enclose any link. Thanks.

AB2072 - Deceit is not Sweet (Vlog)

Mike McConnell and many Republicans' favorite conservative, Ronald Reagan, but seems too many conservatives tend to impose the mandatory government requirement upon people. Reagan's famous quote - "Get the government off our back!" What a hypocrisy and contradiction!

Guess what? The Reagan administration shoved many big government mandates into people's throats like threatening the state government to raise the legal age of drinking to 18 years old or will lose the federal highway funding, etc. Sheesh!

Patti Durr have all good points about why why why why the government insist that everyone ought to see the audiologist. Is that really trampling upon our constitutional rights to decide what is best for our own children? See Durr's vlog! The title of vlog is "AB 2072 - Deceit is not Sweet".

Everyone puzzled why all deaf children in California must see an audiologist after being confirmed the hearing status at hospital delivery room. Duh! Is another government bureaucratic layer to butt into people's lives as what the politically conservative government tend to do? Look at the Meese Commission on Pornography in the 1980s! Mike McConnell defended Russell the Deaf Bunny's right to display the degrading materials in front of deaf families and children at the one of the Deaf Expo. Don't forget that!

Deaf children from deaf families have to drag the poor deaf child all the way to the audiologists office which the child already know that he/she is definitely deaf! What a waste of taxpayers' money and insurance money! No wonder why conservatives whine and whine about the Obama health care being too intrusive into people's lives, but all right for them to impose their values and beliefs upon us, the Eye of the People!

Appointed by Governor and Senate Rules Committee

Have Mike McConnell or deaf detractors being experienced of being appointed to the advisory board by the elected officeholder??? Nyet!

During the early 1990s, I was appointed to the independent living advisory board by Washington, DC Mayor Sharon Dixon. Was I truly qualified to serve on this advisory board??? Definitely NOT!

The office of DC Mayor Dixon just sent me a letter to congratulate me to serve on the DC Independent Living advisory board out of "blue". I never expressed such an interest to serve on that advisory board. Of course, I was enthrilled and honored to be appointed by DC Mayor Dixon at age of 25.

I attended and attended most of the independent living advisory board meetings for about three years. Nothing accomplished at all. The IL advisory board just discussed same things all over and all over on one subject - agrument about the organizational by-laws. What the fuck!!!

Nothing of any agenda or issues to discuss and vote! The advisory board was chaired by the fucking blind guy, who happened to have a beautiful deaf daughter. That chairperson always said to me - "I have a deaf daughter" with head nodded and displayed "Steve Wonder-like" teeth. Yes, the ASL interpreter was provided, but always got in a heated arguments with me. That interpreter always asked me - "You, DC resident?? Please repeat, repeat what you said",
"Wait until someone done with their sayings", "Sorry, too late for your turn to speak" and keep interpreting, interpreting. What the fuck!

I had my tolerance level already exceeded above the normal means. I gently banged on the conference table for me to say something - "Why the hell we keep talking about the organizational bylaws revision for three years???" Guess what? The assigned interpreter refused to repeat what I said in front of the advisory board. I walked out in digust!

I chose not to attend any fucking advisory board meetings at all. I found out that I was still on the advisory board after more than two years absence. I happened to have conversation with David Nelson, deaf DC resident and DC Association of the Deaf member at that moment. Nelson and other deaf individuals had no knowledge about me being on the IL advisory board. See that?? What a big joke about the so-called advisory board itself appointed by the elected officeholder!!

Wonder how the hell for the qualification of someone to serve on the advisory board to be appointed by the Governor of California??? Will someone be selected based on hir own expertise in given area??? Or the Governor's whim to appoint such individuals tailored to his political preference to pack the advisory board in name of democracy? That would be seen more as a sleath dictatorship for the Governor to appoint individuals to the advisory board.

WHY can't the targeted community like the deaf stakeholders and parents of deaf children to make list of recommendations for individuals serving on the AB 2072 advisory board? Will the appointment of individuals be truly qualified and efficient to serve on the AB 2072 advisory board?

We would look at two major gubernational candidates running for the California governor's seat - Meg White, wealthy CEO candidate - very pro-business individual and Jerry Brown, the tiresome liberal, who really fuck up the city of Oakland in big-time. Should we trust either White and Brown to pack the AB 2072 advisory bill for the creation of balanced and fair brochure?

Why wait untl 2017 for the deadline of completing the brochure? Why can't the brochure be all done in less than 2 years or less?
