    they are prejudice against deaf in my life
    exsperiences hearing go out of there way to force there exspectation demands and wants
    beliefs that i have to be hearing im not comfortable with that i dont want to be hearing
    and no hearing person can understand that
    no matter what i say they have there mind made up hearing are sick in the head they are obsesive compulsive possesive about deafness
    in there demands for it with the ignorent war
    on deafness declaired by ronald reagan and if ignorence is bliss meaning beatifull then that
    is terrorism of deaf culture because it is not beatifull and it is not freedom it is not indepnece
    it is not liberty it is not freedom of choice when
    ignorence can make decisons for deaf and force
    there beliefs values philosophys emotions religions on deaf culture to demand our way
    of life live through there ear nose throught
    is vein to them it more money to be made by exsplotation coerse deaf with excitment money sex fame drugs to be hearing enertain there values for deaf culture which is jack shit you
    values and make hearing lots of money with song and dance acting etc the more golden gooses they have the more contracts the more
    contracts they have by pulling the wool over ur eyes blinding u with fame money whatever
    is all that matters in nbrs the more goose with the golden eggs the more the gander the more the profit the more money for hearing and in the
    reality of contracts in there world the money is
    not as great as it looks hearing dont make so
    much with song and dance compared to all the
    people who are making money on ur money u
    get like 20 cents per song they get more why u
    think ice t does so many things cause he rules
    contracts he makes more money and u are a
    fool and get alot less money and sold ur soul

    being because these hearing people try to create more golden eggs opportunity they say

    in hearing and trust them with what u hold sacred the hand is sacred they have no
    understanding of deaf they think use disney to get what they want im sick of it they
    think they have to govern our lives i dont
