We da people of the eye online

Inspired by the Preamble of our U.S. Constitution and Karen Mayes’ We the People blog entry at:


We the People of the Deaf on-line community, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this agreement – come from love!

Challenge sure, disinform, harass, bully, defame, belittle – no thanks!

soo……. no dissing Lesbians pls  – especially in light of the fact that there has been several SUICIDES by gay/lesbian/bi/transgender youths these past few weeks as a result of cyber bullying and stigma

soo…… no b.s. about a Deafhood conspiracy when you yourself has been guilty of major conspiratorial acts to attack, defame, and harass Deaf individuals and organizations unjustly

We the people…..

“we were isolated in the midst of society; today we are reunited…today we have united our intellects, our
efforts, our lights; today we constitute one body; all of us, active and devoted members, desire the well-being of that body;, we who were not, ARE!”

–   Claudius Forestier

peace much

    You might want to add this — “no b.s. on Deafhood conspiracy -AND- Deafhood? No thanks conspiracy.”

    conspiracy is also in the eye of the beholder as is with everything else.

    people have a right to voice their objection of certain organization, even group page on FB. People have a right to support them too.

    Attempts at truth is sometimes seen as conspiracy by others. I think, asking questions and discussing things helps clarify things. I’m thinking…thats what we sud be doing…start asking more questions and learn how to communicate with different ppl w/ different views.

    You do realize not every one is “angelic” ? That goes for both parties.

    expressing voice, opinions, supports fine but LYING about certain groups, organizations is not OK. Changing stories, stances is not. I already asked questions, but I got vague answers or I got answers that showed one changed her/his stories from what s/he originally said before.

    As a well known personal trainer said, “Sugar is the Devil.” I would stay away from candies.

    funny, the previous comment was posted while I was typing. so the comment before me includes “angelic” then next comment (mine) includes “devil” – yikes! weird opposite words in the comments right next to each other, and I didn’t even see that comment until after I posted mine, ha!

    I wanted to clarify little bit on my last sentence: not saying someone is the devil, but you know when you get some sugar, you’d thirst for more. I use that as metaphor in blogosphere. 🙂

    heye all –

    i do like me little vision of “We, da people of the Deaf online community….”

    i think we can i think we can i think we can

    but honesty is an absolute must

    i left a comment over at Ann_Cs
    but since an earlier comment didnt go through im thinking maybe this one won’t so im pasting it here just so its recorded and noted:

    Barry – at Karen’s Questionable Behavior thread – in one of your long comments to Barb you wrote:

    “The idea of writing a letter to your boss was not mine. It did not originate with me.”

    Yet in your email to Ben (see top of this email if you cant find it on your mega harddrive):
    “I drafted rought drafts for everything but just need
    to find a willing candidate to serve as contact person for “concerned

    YOUR OWN WORD BARRY – saying that YOU DRAFTED those letters. Whereas, at Karen’s you kept claiming that those letters just arrived to your desk by others and they you went on to bully the targets of your attempted attack for never defending you??? That is dysfunctional discourse at its worse me pal

    you also went on to write in ur email to Ben:

    “My thinking is since we can’t seem to hold these
    people accountable we might as well make them accountable to the State
    and CAD /NAD.”

    “they [Ella, Barb, and DE] will have to issue public apology or face disciplinary
    actions. Once they do that then it will break them up and destroy the
    spell they are under.”

    DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS – hmmmmm. for what exactly????

    The FACTS are not synching up with what you said at Karen’s or what you have said above here in comments.

    My hand is still out to u.

    Jig is up on that one, me friend.

    Quit spinning – ya just keep tripping urself up. we can not move on if you keep lying, lodging false accusations, spinning, twisting, and harassing.

    make a commitment to refrain from the above and then we can truly move.

    Off the point but related to the whole – everybody should do shout outs when we see stuff in the blogsphere that ain’t cool – (like ann_c has done by bringing in some past events unrelated to this blog entry etc)

    Crystal, Barry’s wife, vlog dissing Lesbians – very UNCOOL

    especially coming after a rash of suicides by Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Transgender youth due to cyberbullying and being stigmatized via online / digital media.

    heye karen

    i did check spam folder and found ur and a few other comments stuck there

    not sure why they went there. some of them had url’s associated with the address and some of them were in fact spam with url’s for promoting other things so i thank u for alerting me to the missing comment so i could catch the other three from older threads and get them approved and toss the true spam ones
