Deaf Citizenry: The Purpose of Constitutional Rights

images-1Last Saturday, September 13, 2014, I grabbed a golden opportunity to visit Fort McHenry, the lost and forgotten war in American history; It was named after the Secretary of War James McHenry who was a signer of the United States Constitution to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Star Spangled Banner written by Francis Scott Key. For example, one listener will summon up a vision of the composer in the ship watching Fort McHenry. Another floats filled with Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners off in a way that each word is signed equally far removed from the reality.  Also, there is a lot of struggling sense of power at the meaning of the individual signs reflecting each word in the prison system.

From the screaming rivers, clear-cut forests to those Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners who had their own constitutional rights broken and committed by naysayers to escape a punishing debt, for example, denying their own language, ASL in prison becomes a constitutional right under First Amendment. Since this week (September 17th-23rd) is Constitution week. There are thousands and thousands of unreported Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners in the database system. They are getting less than a fair treatment of getting full-fledged human rights. There are ghosts everywhere you look in the darkest scandal inside the prison walls. America had taken the rein as a king of the world’s largest inmate inventory.  The same inventory that has almost 1.6 million inmates in America, where is the status of Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners? The same prison walls that own assets equivalent to one-forth of America’s gross justice product. In America, it is five (5) percent of the world’s population, but 25 percent of its prisoners.

In remembering their Constitutional rights, Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners should develop a formula that defines their human right of being Deaf, Deaf-Blind that supports communicative competency that also supports the right of using ASL in prison. There is a vacuum in the prison walls to raise or find fund for Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners whom has the right to branch out their intellectual life by granting them the constitutional rights, so necessarily that Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners and returned citizens can continue to make new meanings. The justice department has failed to resolve many challenges where Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners confront.

The Bill of Rights (First Ten Amendments) are dedicated to protect Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners and returned citizens’ human rights anytime. The prison system is developing a community of hostility—the aversion of Deaf prisoners whose inevitable end of their life skills for better human settings.  It is hard to imagine Deaf, Deaf-Blind or disabled prisoners are forced to forget their constitutional rights, within the political circles, with Deaf inmates in the system, the prison system receive a poor adequate funding to help Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners every day.

It is very important to preserve their rights with the intent of educating them the constitutional rights that they need to recognize that it has a long history, but it is not officially labeled as such. It is to subordinate and intimate not only the reason it is Constitutional week, but also the entire community in which it is needed to use. Preserving the constitutional rights is therefore symbolic in that it sends a message to the entire Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled community to remember their rights. It does matter because it is socially constructed without self-evident definition.  It means that they should be not treated differently. The challenge for the prison system that there are hundreds of Deaf, Deaf-Blind and disabled prisoners  are being on a painful vogue because their constitutional rights in prison has been breached.

A Dumb Picture: Not The Real Thing!

Image

I saw a perfect picture yesterday that I would like to share with you. Is America obsessed with listening and speaking?

Alexander Graham Bell (AGB) is dead but Oralism and Cochlear Implant remain alive; Keep saying it. It is the truth the far right that cannot be lied about anymore.

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) once said, “Socialism is man’s attempt to overcome the predatory stage of human development.” Ask then: Why does socialism equals cooperation? Many people only think of the good side of AGB and the media refuses to look under the covers. The real truth about AGB: he had no baggage–obvious to anyone–besides he was the guy who stole telephone patents and invented them. Oh, yes, the same person who loathed Deaf people, in his own famous words about Deaf children that needs to be heard and seen over and over, “We should try ourselves to forget that they are deaf. We should teach them to forget that they are deaf.”

After his death in 1922, we know that AGB had been in over his head and we the Deaf are suffering for it. We own our rights of the state of being Deaf, and we have to claim it back and be in shape. The bottom line is that there are millions of Deaf people who are suffering ostracism which has been tanking again, especially when Alexander Graham Bell Association of the Deaf (AGBAD) takes over in charge.

AGBAD’s plans for Oralism and Cochlear-Implanting Deaf babies is social insecurity and makes Deaf people suffer longer before receiving curtailed benefits.  AGBAD invests billions of dollars in Cochlear Implants and Oralism in market by making sure that both the AGBAD and its sister organization, Oberkotter Foundation, earn the profit of the income. AGBAD and Oberkotter Foundation makes sure to let the floodgates on future Deaf babies to be cochlear-implanted for profits of a lot of money from insurance companies through a voucher system at any cost. They are truly the sharks.

The picture up there is a perfect example of the U.S. Constitution that Deaf people should be protected by First Amendment to have the rights to use American Sign Language and their rights to be Deaf. Why is AGBAD still holding Deaf-center on a degraded legal rights control zone after all these years because the politics of Oralism and Cochlear-Implanting companies fear the media profiteering off the Deaf-centered topics? The AGBAD is a joke if they want to expect to protect the society. The AGBAD is for the solo benefit of those Oralists and Cochlear-Implanting companies running for “election” to use the media profiteers to use the FEAR to destroy Deaf people off the face of Earth. PERIOD.

Conclusion: Historically, AGBAD seems to find a way to throw out the Deaf-signing nor Deaf-centered people under the conditions and it gives AGBAD the power to fix things. AGBAD has been contrasted with the ugly, hateful, negative, I hate Deaf-centered people, and will never show you their returns or tell you the details of their plans because Deaf-centered people do not deserve it at all. AGBAD’s ideologies were both uplifting and inspiring.

The question that we the Deaf need to think in a free society like ours, how far should efforts in public safety go before we are trampled on the very foundations of freedoms and liberties of all Americans? Happy July! The same month that honorable Laurent Clerc passed away 144 years ago. Never mind the Bill of Rights was adopted by the Congress.
