ASL Meetup Group Experiencing Growing Pains

It seems our Meetup group has been growing steadily over the past few months and I've seen it sort of crowd out the small sweet cafe that had been hosting this great Meetup group.

With the new District at Tustin shopping center opening up, it's a good idea for us to explore new and larger sites for our great meetup event. The district shopping center is about a half mile north on Jamboree from the Main street intersection.
We'd like to make the goal of the move to a new location by this coming October and we are open to suggestions.

While we applaud and commend deaf groups for establishing group homes and rehabilitiation centers exclusively for the deaf communities, we must frown at the idea of isolating members of the deaf communities from the general hearing society.

Isolating deaf people from the general hearing society goes a long way to hurt our status as first class citizens.

The reason we won the deal to refit over 150 drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilites with access equipment for the deaf is we are believers of integration and inclusivity of deaf people into the general hearing society.

We also have plans to expand this out to domestic violence shelters, children homes, and homeless shelters. Our goal, which we believe is entirely achievable, is to replace deaf isolation with deaf inclusion.

The results of our beliefs in inclusion, and of our actions in the long run, we're helping deaf people contribute and share their lives, skills, hopes, vision, and talents directly with the larger hearing society.

We are an agency unlike any other with outreach programs and policy serving our prime purpose : absolute triumph over isolation in our general society.

By so doing, our agency is helping deaf people re-establish their rightful place in society as first class citizens.

Let's All Help Steve Kittell

We all know who this great feller, Steve Kittell, is. We all know of his checkered past. Yet, he's a brilliant businessman with a strong command of the business game and a lot of deaf people can learn from him.

There is a reason why he had to do what he's done to the deaf communities. That is no one has been giving him the chance to straighten himself out.

The chance to help him get straightened out is now! Let's all help him straighten out so he can help the deaf communities.

Let's all help Steve Kittell. Let's all help him grow something legal out of his field of misdeeds.

Website Exposes Cochlear Americas Scandals

Looking at

one can find information about numerous shady Cochlear Americas dealings. Scandals such as kickbacks, referral manipulation, monopoly, and many more. Take your time to go through the entire site. This is a poorly organized website yet it highlights the scandals. This site has been around for a long time and with new information networks like RSS, this can be shared with a larger group of people who need to know more about Cochlear Americas.

Two Different Types Of Domestic Violence Restraining Orders

The first type happens after a person, particularly a woman, gets physically or emotionally battered by another person and they are very deserving of the protection offered by the restraining order.

The second type happens when a person, especially a woman, gets dumped by another person like a husband or lover or boyfriend, uses the restraining order to exact revenge. That's part of the fury of a woman being scorned. This is very common in divorce cases and people who uses restraining orders in this particular fashion should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Other uses in this fashion involves character assassination, scourge, intimidation, bullying, and anti-competitive actions.

I'm pretty much the victim of the second type.

Recycling Old Scourge

Theres been fresh lively discussions about me and our agency on the "R" website and that's old scourge I have dealt with a long time ago. Recycling old stuff means they have nothing new to use on me. I'm not afraid to deal with old flak again as they'd bounce off me like spitwads.

And I want to thank the "R" website for the added publicity.

The solution to the GallyNet insanity!

Recent posts on GallyNet at their new host gives strong suggestion that they will be carrying the same scourge and childishness that permitted in their Deaf California News mailing list 4 years ago.

Gallaudet stakeholders really need a safe discussion list to discuss issues surrounding higher deaf education and we have just the place for it.

Join us and we'll go back to having a healthy discussion on the future of deaf education at Gallaudet and other universities.
