Cochlear implant continues to be marketable and practice public shaming of the Deaf community. Exploitation targets Deaf to be immediately identifiable and forget their Deaf identity. False hope is not cool. Audism leads to false hope, yes?
What would it like not to live without history that reflects all of us who Deaf people are? The history of idea of creating “poll” goes back to George Gallup who defined the American information to give voters the right to democracy, and most importantly, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) gives any person has the right to seek access for information at the request including the right to poll.
Guaranteed. Deaf people have seen the Gallup Poll sharing national news with anchors talking about it on national television, there is no way to miss this. It has changed the history of American politics including our own Deaf community.
It is a poll that Deaf people have right to gather their opinions for the fact of the matter is voting that creates truth to understand the power-struggling experiences and should not hide the emotional suffering in denial, and somehow suffering and does not know it.
Remember the times where there would be a tent with pollsters asking someone to taste the hidden drink which it would be COKE or PESPI. If you are right with the chosen drink brand, you get a prize. Come on, we cannot forget that. I did that. I like Pepsi. It is a simple and democratic poll. We are created as statisticians because we have the right to vote even for a poll.
We are strong believers in polling, too. When someone Deaf writes: “Deaf Life is abusing its powerful influence in the Deaf community.” That’s far fetched.
That is a one-sided perspective and never read diverse variety of information chewing influence away, and the poll created by DEAF LIFE is simple, harmless and a human right for anyone to vote in a poll when it comes to LEAD-K and Alexander Graham Bell. Would you react differently if it was George Veditz partners up with Alexander Graham Bell? What about truth partners up with toxicity? Would it go quietly deliberate and depend on the information to create their own viewpoints in polling? Do Deaf people have right to get Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), too?
There is the subscription in truth for freedom of information act and Deaf community should not deal with Alexander Graham Bell getting away with the fear of having a different opinion from the rest of Deaf community like us. Within polls like this one in Deaf community, we would want to fit in society without fear and hatred from Alexander Graham Bell. That kind of thinking does not develop social justice that shows many survivors who experienced language deprivation from the biggest oppressor, Alexander Graham Bell.
That is the kind of justice that is rightfully important to all of us and we need more people like us that are courageous enough to vote in a poll to stand up against what is wrong in society we deal with every day, and it starts with us to make a better place for all of us to live safely as much as possible, and that starts with a poll that is historic enough.
It sends a wrong message with final answer: Because Deaf community continues to live in Alexander Graham Bell’s America where its American citizens gets their news from known-sided organization like AGBell filled with propaganda and disinformation which best option for a language to learn other than rejecting American Sign Language off the book to control Deaf people’s use of the powers of emotionalism to allow modes of communication like Cued Speech, Oralism, Cochlear Implants all are Alexander Graham Bell’s favorite tools that will improve English in listening and writing far skyrocket…..the very same fear in and of themselves that ASL is powerful and best choice of all languages.
It should concern all of us that we continue to ignore the facts and follow our emotions when it comes to give Alexander Graham Bell the crown like a king. What should public opinion like this poll be based on? Should it be based on forgotten experiences? What would it mean to us in the eyes of educational polling? It also abuses its powerful influence of journalism that is often not enough discussed in Deaf community.

Will we agree that American Sign Language (ASL) ever succeed as an emotional intelligence?
Written English Transcript in the video:
Upon reading from sociologist Will Wright helps me wonder if it would match Karl White.
That is right. Alexander Graham Bell Association is making a come back for the state of Oregon chapter. Janet Weil, President of AGBell, Oregon Chapter writes, “Did you know that his headstone in Nova Scotia says, ‘Teacher of the Deaf’?” to make sure Oregon must be listening and speaking state champion. Rake in big money. Nothing more important than the legacy of Audism continues to bulldoze Deaf community. No headstone of AGBell is allowed in Oregon.
Ms. Weil had enthusiastically described and explained in her letter, that it is time to track and deliver the message that AGBell services could provide. With confidence in an oppressive tone, she had brought her authority to a close with in her mind, “Now we are making sure Deaf community will lose”—It took only a few seconds for her to realize that she was in for a disaster.
Just three sets of eye staring—one set at her, one set at Deaf community, and one set out to get rid of American Sign Language (ASL) and force them to listen and speak instead. As the silence walks into Deaf eyes, Janet needs to know that her confidence is slipping away. The Audist behavior. Understanding the Audist behavior. Audists in review. Coping with Audists.
There were plenty of Deaf Oregonians had been oppressed under AGBell practices according to Paulo Freire in his book: The Politics of Education:
Washing one’s hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral.”
AGBell was powerful and Deaf Oregonians were powerless. They were forced to side with the powerful dictatorship, according to Ms. Weil’s “Teacher of the Deaf” refers in to AGBell. Now they are no longer powerless. The key is to cope successfully with complainers like AGBell. We need to know what lies behind their actions and how easy it is to be sucked into their world. We need to be aware the real problems, but AGBell is doing it in a private manner that elicits defensive responses from Deaf community.
Survivors of AGBell practices, we understand as the only kind of active behavior that seems possible to those people like AGBell feels powerless to determine Deaf people’s own fate. Deaf community refuses to be powerless when they favor American Sign Language for the instruction of learning. Ms. Weil writes, “I am passionate about this organization http://www.agbell.org and even more excited about what we can all do together to make a lasting difference, while having a great time. Looking forward to hearing from you.”
Who might Janet Weil? Her uncle, Arthur Simon was a founder of the Deaf Adults Section of AGB. She was an executive director and principal for Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre of BC (British Columbia) in Vancouver, Canada and it has been supported by the Alexander Graham Bell Association in Washington, D.C. and has been frequent supporter for VOLTA VOICES. She was a teacher-trained at Central Institute for the Deaf.
Any AGBell chapters in America, including Oregon are not welcomed. Deaf community will be continue to be the protectors of ASL, and give Janet Weil the balloon known as the phony know-it-all expert, balloons seek the attention of others by acting an expert when she is not. Janet also needs to be aware that she is not speaking for us, Deaf community behind her knowledge. Janet’s balloon is often tracking and targeting Deaf people for information to make AGBell proud, and that would lead to trouble only and be aware that the balloon will face the moment of truth that AGBell will be immobilized. Inactive. Deactivate.
Notice the area code. 415. That is in San Francisco. Janet is making all the decisions while living in California and tell Oregon what to do to build more Audists. What an attitude! How much is she getting paid to do? Living in San Francisco is expensive…….
The presence of ASL will always bring awareness and the probability of Oralism loss of face, on the other hand, will reduce the balloon to the most elemental kind of knowledge. ASL will always making a lasting a difference for lifetime. ASL will be always expensive to replace for listening and speaking or in the name of Oralism to please AGBell.
Do we do not need more scars anymore?
