2-12-2017 Tidbits

I know I haven’t written a blog post for several days, more than a week now since the last blog post that I wrote were February 4th and I apologize for that. I just couldn’t find the time to write a blog post past several days, it has been time-consuming for me lately with other projects that I am working on and it is overwhelming to the point that I rarely find any time to sleep because the later I get the shorter sleep I will get. I barely find the time to keep up with the news that is going on around here in the United States and in other countries so that means I hardly had the chance to come up with some of the topics to share my opinions or my thoughts on news this past week. After the summer last year, my schedules became so messy to the point where I barely know what tasks I think I can complete and what tasks I must dismiss to complete some of other tasks especially the ones I consider more important than others. I believe that one or two blog posts earlier I have stated that I would try to write more blog posts than I have been since the summer last year, it is obvious that I have failed doing that and I will say this that I have no absolutely idea if I will be able to find the time to write blog posts on regular basis that I used to because of other projects that is taking a lot of my attention away but I will at least say this that I will try my darndest best to write a blog post once a week for the time being instead of three or four times a week that I used to. I just will have to try to figure out my schedule a bit better, this would mean that I will have to strategically figure my schedule as much as I can and hopefully I will be able to take myself back on the track to where I can at least write a blog post two or three times a week instead of once a week for the time being so I hope that you will bear with me for now until I figure something out.

Our Rights to Freedom of Speech and Expression

Your opinion does matters because it is your opinion and mine do matters too because it is my opinion. Every one of us have the right to freedom of speech and the freedom to express. That’s the beauty of democracy thanks to the founders of the America and democracy is very important for the America otherwise we would be destroying the founders vision of the America that they turned in based on democracy. Freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Each one of us, every one of us have the right to that and no one can ever deny our rights to that. So, everyone who is a fan of Trump being the president of the united states then be so it and who is NOT a fan of Trump being president of the United States then be so it. Let’s leave it at that, we each have the right to express our opinions whatever it is that we have on whether it be about politics, technology, business and whatnot. I see that some of the people out there who’s telling some of the others that they need to give Trump administration a chance and that they need to move on. No, they don’t have to give Trump administration a chance and they do not have to move on. Just like some of the people who wasn’t fan of Obama administration, all of them had the right to refuse that they must move on and they have every right to not give Obama administration a chance. It is very tiresome to see some of the people who thinks that they have the right to freedom of speech, freedom of expression and that the others don’t. That defy the democracy that America was created by the founders and what every one of us should be doing is at least be civil.

1-21-2017 Tidbits

I wasn’t sure if I was in mood to blog tonight or not, honestly, I haven’t been in mood for much of anything anyway and I decided that since I have nothing else to do for about an hour and half so I decided that I will use that time to blog about something. I know ever since the new year or this year in 2017 seems that I starts to lagging on blog as I usually write an article for every two days for the entire year of last year 2016 and so far, this year I have moved from one article in every two days to one article every weekend and I would like to apologize for that but I have been busy lately with the things that’s going on around here. Nothing to do with my health though, thankful for that and by being busy I mean advocating for the Affordable Care Act. I am still is and have been a vocal in Affordable Care Act especially for the state of Kentucky because Kentucky is one of few states that rely on it more than anything as most of them are people with disabilities like myself, retired coal miners and veterans or children of a parents that cannot afford the care for their child so they rely on that to get some medical assistance for their child too. Being one of several activists in the SaveACA (Save Affordable Care Act) campaign on social media, email, physical letters and whatever else the technology allows to send out a message to the government about the importance in the Affordable Care Act. Not only that, few of the Affordable Care Act advocates including myself had got some backlash from some of the people who opposes it and wish to repeal it without realizing that it’s not just for the people with disabilities but also for many of other reasons which I have included above. People with disabilities, veterans who were injured in war, retired coal miners after getting injured from coal mines as Kentucky is one of two or three states that is the home of coal, senior citizens, care for the child due to their parents not being able to afford to have any medical assistance for their child and I could go on all night but these are the keys in how it is important to not repeal Affordable Care Act. If absolutely must to repeal Affordable Care Act then if it will include expansion in Medicare, Medicaid and whatnot then for the rest of others is up to the people but all we ask is that the parts of Medicare, Medicaid and whatnot stays or expand.

Reflection of ’16 & Happy New Year ‘17

Hey guys and women! I would like to wish all of you a very happy new year 2017! I am sure that some of your nights are still going on as it is still early night at 2:20AM and I hope that those of you who party with alcohol to be careful with deciding about driving because I highly recommend that you call a taxi or uber to drive you home. Even though if you aren’t drinking it is still dangerous to be driving on the road especially tonight since it is the new year and I am certain that there is a lot of people whose driving drunk so keep your eyes out for them. Everyone is celebrating the New Year, as everybody have every right to celebrate the new year but I am somewhat not in mood for celebration because there are a few reasons which I will share a bit later below. I watched the New Year ball drops as we always watch the ball drops on New Year eve every year, we would celebrate every year until tonight we are starting to realize that it feels as if it is just another day even though we know that it is the New Year and now I don’t really see the point in celebrating for the New Year. I guess everyone have different opinions or thoughts about the New Year, I did as we used to celebrate the New Year traditionally with the family and now it is just both me and my mother as our family have been decreased so that’s one of many reasons that we rarely celebrate the holidays.

Dear President-Elect Donald Trump

Dear President-Elect Donald Trump.

I have thought for several hours on whether I should bother to write this or not but I have decided that a few important matters cannot be as easily dismissed so I have decided to write this public letter to you, President-Elect Donald Trump. Before I can begin, I would like to say that you may or may not acknowledge that I am not a fan of you being one of candidates for presidency here the United States and on my conscience I could not simply vote you to become the next President of the United States. I am one of millions who have voted Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States, while you understand that I have the right to vote whomever I feel that the person would be better at presidency than any other candidates including yourself but unfortunately Hillary Clinton could not get enough electoral votes. Though the candidate I voted for may have lost the presidency does not means that I would not accept that you have won the presidency, I humbly accept you to be the next President of the United States and I am looking forward to what you can do for the Americans. The reason I rooted and voted for Hillary Clinton is because I am a Democrat but if I was a Republican then you would have been my choice but I share the interests and ideology more with the Democratic party than I am with Republican party though. Nonetheless I would like to congratulate you on your win for presidency here in the United States, I hope that what you said throughout your campaign that you want the government to be for, of and by the people instead of for the, of and by the business or corporations which is what Republicans are known for in my opinion but I hope that you prove me wrong with that as I am giving you a chance.

The Society of Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Seriously most of you guys got it made easy, most of you have privileges whether it be from your generations, your backgrounds and the record that you have done all of your lives. Now as for Deaf or Hard of Hearing people and you both have same privileges that you use at your advantage of getting something such as a job, Deaf or Hard of Hearing will have to double the efforts trying to be hired by somebody or at somewhere while the hearing person doesn’t; It’s almost guaranteed that the hearing person would be hired in a heartbeat while the Deaf or Hard of Hearing people wouldn’t even get a chance for an interview. That’s how the society is, if the hearing person has one associate degree while the Deaf or Hard of Hearing have two PhD, three masters, two bachelor degrees, the company or someone would immediately hire the one with an associate degree over the person who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing that has several degrees including PhD, Bachelor and masters they still would prefer to hire that one hearing person who have associate degree while not bothering to give the person who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing with very higher education along with rich knowledge or skills in a position that they were looking for. Thanks to the society that has been man-made to put the barriers in the Deaf community from becoming a successful person with a great career and being able to put the foods on the table for his or her family while that person with lower education has no family, possibly on welfare or on some governments payroll and practically is set for life even where getting a job for himself or herself is not necessary as the person who’s Deaf or Hard of Hearing has no money at all while struggling to pay for some foods on the table for his or her family.
