I Support Net Neutrality

I see that a lot of people in my circle, this including both hearie community and deaf community are very concerned about Federal Communications Commission’s decision on repealing Net Neutrality. I am very glad that a lot of concerns going around because Net Neutrality is a serious matter for many of us, however I also seen many people who are either confused or misleading some others about what Net Neutrality is all about and what impact that it can do if Net Neutrality were to be repealed. First, Net Neutrality is not a law as some people seems to think they are and Net Neutrality is a policy made by Federal Communications Commission which is a federal agency that were founded by government to be the policymakers for the telecommunications. Federal government has several agencies to regulate some things, such as Federal Communications Commission were created by government to regulate television cable, radio, internet, wire, satellite and anything else that has to do with airwaves through the likes of satellites in space as they are what allows us to connect to some things through the airwaves such as internet (including cellular data), radio, television cable or others. Just like Health and Human Services is one of federal government’s agency to regulate healthcare, Medicare, Medicaid and anything else that has to do with our health or our wellbeing. So, you get the idea of Federal Communications Commission now and what authority or power they have which can be in a way good thing to limit the limitless power of the government under one roof to regulate everything – although they can but once they did they would have to go to these agencies to regulate them. Most of these agencies are meant to be independent but unfortunately, they assign anyone who has the same political party as the President or most of both senates and house.

People’s Perception on Deaf People

I would like to remind many of you with a disclaimer for this that this is my view, my thought and my perception of what I see out of the people’s perception on the Deaf people because every Deaf and Hard of Hearing have different experiences therefore they can share what it is to be under the microscope of the people who we labelled “hearies”. I am only sharing what I have witnessed on hand from what the hearies people have a perception of the Deaf people and Hard of Hearing including myself as I am one of many Deaf person in the world. So, I encourage the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to share their thoughts on what it is like to get an idea of how the hearies people view them as or of. Now that we get this out, as I have said that this is my view for getting the idea of what the hearies have a perception of us Deaf and Hard of Hearing people. It is no secret that the Deaf people doesn’t have it easy, in fact they must work as twice hard to survive whether it be trying to get a job from somewhere and being oppressed by many of people for several decades. I have seen, I am certain that many if not all Deaf community can say that when we declare that we are Deaf or Hard of Hearing we would get a reaction from the hearies as if being Deaf means that we are uneducated and took us as if we have mental retardation or in nicer word “intellectual disability” for some reason. There are a few theories but mainly I can blame a few of the people who invented a term words for the Deaf people which is “Deaf and Dumb” so that misled many of the hearies people to think that Deaf people have no intelligence whatsoever hence the word “Dumb”. Whomever invented that term to label the Deaf people several decades ago were obviously uneducated and in the end, they weren’t intelligent so that is irony since there have been many studies that have done on the Deaf people which have found that they can be as intelligent as others if they are being taught in their native language (American Sign Language, British Sign Language, Auslan, Langue Des Signes Du Quebec-LSQ etc.).

1-5-2017 Tidbits

Hey guys and women! I see that a lot of the people starts getting back to their routines, back to work, some adults being sent back to the colleges and some children being sent back to schools which I am sure that some of the parents are a bit happy about that since with their children being sent back to school would give them a little relief or some room to breathe after trying to handle these wild children for a couple of the weeks due to Christmas break. My mother is a special aide at a middle school as she has been for more than a decade or two, she assists the children with some kinds of special needs and I think she has worked for so many years so I sometimes would ask her to retire so that I could have my mother at home without having to worry about if something was to happen to her there. For some reason, as the years goes by I starts getting more worried over her going to work because I believe that if she is to retire that she would have much less risks to her health and by retiring I believe that she will continue to be very healthy as she is now. When my aunt broke her ankle in different three or four places by falling over the steps outside of the house and we looked it as her just having a broken ankle but down the road after few days of breaking her ankle she passed away due to blood clot from it which that can be prevented only if the doctors over at ARH in South Williamson, Ky gives her blood thinners medicine as some of the people does especially after certain surgeries but unfortunately the doctors didn’t give her blood thinners medicine so in result of that we lost her. Breaking her ankle was what starts the dominos effect, from broken ankles in two or three parts to her death and I believe if I remember correctly that it was one weeks or no longer than two weeks after her surgery for her broken ankle she passed away.

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.

12-10-2016 Tidbits

I know I have not write anything for a few days, about a bit over half of a week because I have been somewhat lately and not only that I have unbelievably struggles with trying to find some time to write an article for the blog since my last article where I was talking about looking for anyone who would like to write an article as a guest. By the way for these emails that I have gotten from you about wanting to write a guest article on here, I am very thankful for these emails and I am hoping that I will continue getting some more e-mails from some of you who would like to write an article as a guest. It seems that through these emails I have gotten from the people, most of them wants to write an article about foods and recipes so I am somewhat taken back by that as I realized that there are more food bloggers than I thought they would be. I have not picked two or three guest bloggers to write one of each articles as guest yet because I want to make sure that everyone can still get this opportunity to write an article as a guest in case if they didn’t know that I am looking for some guest bloggers so I am trying to spread the words about this as much as I can and will do so for as long as I can although I will probably try to call it a deadline by either Sunday or Monday this week coming up so to give everybody a bit more time to decide or a bit more time for more people to find out about this opportunity. Nonetheless I am being hopeful that I can give something back to the bloggers in return for their thanks for helping me to succeed from the day one when I started getting some interest in becoming a blogger in the year of 2004.

2016 U.S. Presidential Election, Vote and Debates

A four years term is up and we are getting ready to be going into the 2016 United States Presidential Election at this time of the year for United States presidential. We have had Barrack Obama for two terms since the year of 2008, some people hates him and some people loves him as everybody have different opinions about our current President of the United States, Barrack Obama. Regardless what is your opinion of Barrack Obama, he have done some good things and he have done some bad things just as every past presidents of the united states have done and the future presidents of the united states will be doing. No one is perfect, nobody can do a such feat that do everything good and done nothing bad. I will say that I am happy that we had Barrack Obama as our president of the united states opposite the other presidential candidates at that time such as Republican John McCain in the year of 2008 versus Democrat Barrack Obama and then in 2012 Republican Mitt Romney versus Democrat Barrack Obama. Thankfully Barrack Obama won the election in the year of 2008 and once again thankfully Barrack Obama won the re-election in the year of 2012 because we wouldn’t want John McCain or Mitt Romney in the office as we have seen how they were after the elections as they have done nothing good so imagine one of them won the election then the things that they had done in past these years after election would be the same thing as if they were president of the United States. You can hate or love Barrack Obama, the point is that he was a better choice at these both times and it is probably best choices that the American have done by electing Barrack Obama twice considering who were the other presidential candidates at both times.
