summary of the below – as in a nutshell cuz things are nutty – in case u is in a hurry or no likey me typy –
AG Bell is at it AGAIN and AGAIN – sending unwanted and offensive letters and membership cards to Deaf schools near u. Latest in is that VA school for the Deaf has been hit up so …. do do?
you must create a letter / msg and send to AG Bell Association FOR the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
its a hafta do folks cuz they no listen and we need to be SEEN and HEARD
get busy folks – do it in ASL, English, pix, whatever but do it and then send me the link if u want it here. need an example – check out the good stuff already sent – see right side bar (and note so far its been predominately XXers – as in females, as in the previously declared “weaker sex” HA. dont think it means anything – im just saying and noticing and hoping more folks will step up to the plate and some of them will be XYers. Bell worked mighty hard to emasculate the Deaf – dont let ’em. ok and psst they still at it ya know so – stand and deliver. Show ’em u got ovaries and balls to bust their b.s. Pretty please! Allies too – u know wrong is wrong. many folks chins drop when we say – well there organizations and “academies” that say no-no to sign language – Hearing folks on the street say “WTF” and “that’s horrible!” and when we say – “we think they should let Deaf kids sign” they say “I agree” so pretty please – u too allies create ur letters for AGB cuz every who in whosville gotta be making that yelp cuz right now AG Bells stubbornly playing deaf&dumb. Shame shame shame. In fact “‘Tis true, ’tis pity; Pity ’tis, ’tis true.”.. – oh, how i love George Veditz – happy early B-Day George. so glad u were born)
now for the long version – ; ) (see below)
WTF AGB – wow the nerves of u!
holy crud batman –
another School for the Deaf is now reporting getting the AGBAD insulting and offensive letter and FREE temporary membership cards.
so far on the roster (and see if u can see a pattern folks):
1. Rochester School for the Deaf, NY
2. Kansas School for the Deaf
3. Indiana School for the Deaf
4. Fremont California School for the Deaf
5. Virginia School for the Deaf
(schools below added as confirmations come in that staff received the letter/cards)
6. Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind (ASDB)
7. Texas School for the Deaf
8. St. Rita’s (Cincinnati, Ohio)
9. St. Mary’s (Buffalo, NY)
10. MD school for the Deaf
hmmmmmm… odd eh? Each of these schools has been IN the news lately.
1. RSD – re: 4201 school budget threat
2. Kansas – re: budget threat
3. Indiana – re: Governor appointing 2 unqualified and pro-Oral / Aural only folks to the board (Hear Indiana, chapter of AG Bell association)
4. Fremont CSD – re: new superintendent and previously many folks involved in the AB 2072 activism to block the infiltration of pro-oral / aural ONLY (ie anti-ASL) into legislative mandates
5. VSD – re: administration controversy and low performance
now i dont think these were the ONLY schools to get the letters and cards. I am gonna assume (and assumptions are dangerous) that they have done a mass mailing and the reporting of those 5 schools receiving is due to the fact that those schools have some enlightened staff who know when and how to give shout outs when wrongs are done to them and their profession.
but it’s curious and odd that no other schools have reported having gotten the cards and letters yet. so either they have but their staff dont care enuf to stand up and get up (ahhh indifference and apathy – the very stuff that makes the angels weep) or they are too scared (Yep lots of folks think that if u STAND ^ bad things will happen when in fact if u don’t STAND ^ bad things will happen to more folks than just u so which r u gonna choose? greater good or death of the spirit – its ur option) or AG Bell has only targeted the schools they feel need their “HELP” the most. Ah, dire straits. Who really be in them now?
im thinking the big ole bully on the Deaf education block be in dire straits and their paddle is a broken. IE – A G Bell & co. u a busted.
the more u try to paddle ur ill-gotten wares the more we r a quest-i-on and dis-covering up ur cover ups. Yes darling Bell – ring a ding a ling – the bell tolls for ye
cuz we SEE
see what? u ask
well we see ur lobbying via opensecrets (thanks shawn e)
and ur lobbying via the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Alliance
and ur being in bed with cochlear implant companies and various hEARing foundations that are all associated with some businesses that revolve around the ears
and ur Volta Review articles – ahhh Karl White making it painfully clear that there needs to be a Hear Hear Hear revolution. Really karl – this is not new news cuz ya all been beating that drum for a mighty long time.
hmmm this aint really new folks – different hardware but same path via EXCLUSION of visual acuity and a fully natural and accessible language
dang that repetitious history cuz they keep trying to deny that we got any – history as in OURstories
but alas – we will NOT be denied and we will NOT be ignored
and we see u coming for a set of ears and mouth and SCHOOLS near u
ya basta with those false membership cards
ur Fixation with fixing via infiltration and propaganda is so not cool
ohhh there is more we r finding. much more and all roads lead to ur door, ci industries’ doors (cha ching cha ching cha chong goes the little red cash register as the freaky monkey in the audiology lab goes clang clang clang. this wont hurt a bit dear – ahhh thank gosh for pain killers), and EHDI (ahhh see ya in St. Louis March 4-5)
ya basta babe (IE AGBAD) – its time to:
1. retract the Pepsi letter and apologize for it – we Deaf, not dumb AG Bell and we read the dang thing. ring a ling ling
2. cease and desist with the mailing of the unwanted and offensive membership letters and cards – we Deaf not dumb AG Bell. ring a ling ling ding a ling
3. apologize for your role in the reign of Oralism – yep we have read all da books and the primary sources and eugenics (be it postive or negative is NOT COOL) and we have read the WHO, UN CRPD, WFD, and ICED 2010 New Era agreement and accord for the future and the truth be told – Deaf children shall NOT be denied the right to a fully natural and accessible LANGUAGE. so ya busted pally wally
this is not the new EAR era A G B A D
we know now why u want us to forget we is Deaf and u want us to NOT remember to remember our history. been there done that AG Bell and we didnt even get no lousy t-shirt.
can u hear us now??
folks – please let AG Bell know why Oralism (ie Oral / Aural only) is not cool cuz they is a bit well hmmm S L O W.
sorry to be blunt AG Bell but it is the Deaf way and the clock is a ticking. as the bell is a tolling and we be rolling! (like those mighty streams of justice)
