Alexander Graham Bell: Public Enemy of the Deaf

Some of you may not know this especially if you aren’t associated with the Deaf community and if you are indeed associated with the Deaf community or you are Deaf/Hard of Hearing yourself then there is a good possibility that you know this. If you aren’t associated with the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community or you are one of them then you already have a question in your mind wondering what or who am I referring to the public enemy of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community but if you are associated with the community or you are one among of us as I am Deaf myself then you should by now already know that I am referring to Alexander Graham Bell being the public enemy of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community. Now that I have mentioned that the name is Alexander Graham Bell, those who aren’t associated with or is Deaf/Hard of Hearing immediately recalls that Alexander Graham Bell is known for being a pioneer or an inventor as he invented landline telephone and some of you already know that he has been suspected of stealing the blueprint from Elisha Gray who came up with the mechanics in blueprint to build the first landline telephone that everybody today uses at home using dial-up connection. That wasn’t the only thing that Alexander Graham Bell is known for, he is also known for being a public enemy of the Deaf community for more than a century and even though he may not longer alive but he left something behind that would continue to keep himself as the public enemy even to this day. His organization with several agencies under it calls Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. He has himself alone done harms to the Deaf community itself deeply to the point that it left an everlasting scar and his organization is here to always make sure that they find a way to open the wound scar in the Deaf community that he made when he was alive.

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.

Hey guys and women! How are all of you doing? I hope that all of you are doing well, considering that we are somewhat having a taste of the winter as in eastern part of the United States is at 15 degree, especially over here in the state of Kentucky so it is obviously a bit cold and it is just the beginning of going into the winter. I am doing well myself over here, we got a lot of the heaters going on with the house’s heater, a couple of portable electric heaters and kerosene heater in the living room. With these heats going, the electric portable heaters and the house’s heater is having a bit difficult of catching up to the temperature that we have set for the house so that mean obviously that it is cold here but we are doing fine though. I notice that we just started getting low temperatures for the winter in December, which is a bit different because if I recall correctly, last year and maybe a few years before that we usually hit around 20-30 degrees in the beginning month of January. It’s middle of the month December, we are hitting the range of 10-20 degrees so that’s about 10-15 degrees and one month difference so I suspect that it is a possibility that we will be having a bit colder winter this year than we had last year but the question is how many snows are we going to get this year? I am a bit concerned about that, especially that over here in the eastern part of the United States that we are hitting 10-20 degrees then right back up to 40-50 degrees and then straight back to 10-20 degrees so the winter is bipolar this year as it seems. Climate change? Absolutely and that’s a problem we will be having with the president-elect Donald Trump when he takes the office in the next month because he doesn’t believe in climate change or global warming. What you expect, he is a Republican and that’s common with anyone who is Republicans although I am not saying that every Republicans doesn’t believe in that but unfortunately most don’t.

AG Bell’s Response about Nyle DiMarco.

A few days ago recently, an anti-cultural organization have written a public response to the Washington’s Post in regards to a proudly Deaf gentleman Nyle DiMarco who succeeds in the television industry such as America’s Next Top Model and now on Dancing With the Stars; Nyle DiMarco’s statements about the importance in Deaf or Hard of Hearing children to learn American Sign Language at an early age. AG Bell founded by the same person who invented your telephone, Alexander Graham Bell who founded an organization (association) calls Alexander Graham Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing but in reality it is the organization who degrades the Deaf community for many decades along with many of other things that the organization have done to the Deaf community very harshly so for that it has become the public enemy in the eyes of Deaf community. AG Bell have issued a public response to Washington Post article as it is what AG Bell do their best which is oppress or degrade anybody who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing by saying that the statement Nyle DiMarco made which is “There are many deaf kids out there being deprived of their own language” is a myth and then started off lying by implying that American Sign Language is declining. It would be better off with you reading the response by AG Bell and not me telling you what they are saying because that response by AG Bell have angered the Deaf community and I am proud to say that I am part of the Deaf community.

Starkey Is The Enemy!

The other day I have stumbled upon some researches and watched some videos of a laboratories company named Starkey Hearing Foundation that have not just angered me but angered several individuals in the Deaf community. Starkey is a company that make hearing technology for any individuals that have a problem with hearing and Starkey have led several people to think that Starkey is the hero as it is what Starkey would want you to see them as but they are not really the hero that you thought. There are several articles or videos that have shown where there are public figures individuals such as some of United States of American former presidents like George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and our running for president Hillary Clinton gives the hearing aids to some of the people who are either Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Even the Starkey have said that their hearing technology is the treatment or the solution for anyone who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing just upsets the Deaf community even more because it is misleading as there is several Deaf or Hard of Hearing individuals have said that they limits their freedom more than they have. Why does it limit Deaf or Hard of Hearing individuals freedom more? Because with these technology they cannot do some activities such as swimming, play some contact sports such as football, basketball, baseball and even hockey.
