I already watched of her vlog, I was stunned and feeling it seem not right.
Only TSF only force on Cohlear Implants and would not shared with deaf community and force on CI baby or child(s).
I am glad you vlogging right now about these issues. since Aiden Mack found that she did researched about first vlogger about South Dakota Relay service related who pay by pass the law from legistures. I was stunned and angry and I just shared with my husband. he watched Aiden’s vlogger. he say “Could not beleive! why South Dakota keep running to pay by T-moible or other kind of cell business to pay for their CI expense. It is not seem right!
How can We start to bring up issues about these and NEED TO STOP TO C-CELL’S as such t-moible, Version and other kind of business should not raise for CI only..
What about Hearing aids??
Please find a way to start to prevent to brought the law from legisture or some kind of things in your deaf community – your hometown,too.

You cannot expect CSD to be able to do anything about it. Look at the South Dakota School for the Deaf, they have the Cochlear Implant program there, and it’s right next door to CSD! This is one of the many reasons why many deaf people have left SD.

Thanks for your great “Jack’s Eyes”. I have seen various deaf video vlogs..
In one of the video was a meeting in Sweden…about their deaF PROGRAMS AND SERVICES…their communities are very cooperative among the hearing, CI, deaf and hard of hearing …and they all uses sign language and their laws is not to stop sign language….OOOHH that’s great.. surely do like to see that in the rest of the world…noone’s left out.

Thank you very much for letting everyone know what is going on with TSF and about CI then they disrciminate deafness! That is very terrible wrong!
I think that they try to not have anymore deaf people in the world after more deaf people get CI ? Sad

I AGREE WITH YOU AND AGAINST THEM

Go to http://www.sdad.org
There’s facts to this story in the video message that the President has made to her members and the Deaf and hard of hearing community.
November 27, 2007 at 11:21 pm
That is a bullshit SDAD vlog response that I ever saw. I am sure that the President of SDAD works for CSD and even there is a CSD logo on their website so SDAD is just a puppet organization under CSD’s control and say what CSD tell them what to do.
SDAD says that they don’t accept the use of the fund for CI but be neutral about it. Boy, their organization’s name should be Stupid Dakotas Association of the Deaf. They can do better by doing something about it than watching to make sure it does not happen again.

That’s B.S. abt South Dakota are trying to destroy our asl signs that We wont let S.D. to put deafies CI not to use the signs. Hell no way I aint going to have CI myself. That’s GOD gave us deaf as gifted. Of course, I’m ur side no matter what bec deafpower! Keep up going to prevent to get CI!
November 28, 2007 at 2:18 am
Do you have any proof about what you said I just read you on your video? I found it hard to believe, but I know you should be very right about what you said. I am glad to find out about what you just said. Have a good luck!

Ex CSD employee
I agree with Jack’s feeling/thought about CSD. The favorite puppets of the top management level and the management really doesn’t care what’s going on out there, only for themselves. Remember all of the $$$$$$$$$ CSD received until the BIG headlines everywhere in the world about the CEO’s salary, over $850K per year, plus all of the great benefits, vechiles, mansion, vacation all over the world, etc. The good honest and dedicated workers were let go or/& canned, only the favorite puppets and the upper management are still employed there today. If you want to keep/save your job, you must have a brown nose period. They don’t care how hard dedicated workers have done, just for those who are brown nose will always be under his thumb.

I competely agreed with you both, Jack’s Eyes and Aidan Mack! Thank you so much for your hard work. CSD needs to stop PLAYING GOD!!! Don’t know if you did see my video tube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18devUPUCWI&eurl=http://www.deafvideo.tv/watch/4321
Hope you will have a very good blessing day! Hugs, Shawn

FYI: I did watched this SDAD President’s vlog link: http://www.sdad.org
To my question that how come the CSD did NOT WARN or inform us, the Deaf community around here in America about the legislatures with the VRS Telecommunication in first place. Why we, the Deaf are NOT being WARN to watch out the legislators???
November 28, 2007 at 11:32 pm
I would like to have Jack’s Eye subscripton everyday or everyweek whatever.
We are high oppose Cochlear Implant. Thanks
November 29, 2007 at 12:08 am
Lets make this a very simple point. Educate parents and they have the power to not let their children have choclear implants. Educate all parents about it is the best way to prevent this from happening to children.
November 29, 2007 at 12:11 am
I AGREE WITH U … I DONT LIKE WHAT THEY DID …
November 29, 2007 at 1:42 am
Hi I have watced the vlog. Wow! I think I have enough about this…. Why? Because hearing babies can be taught sign language, can be taught in High School as forgein language, moe cochlear implants,etc, etc…. Deaf culture has the right to use Sign Language. Why it is so hard for ppl to understand that. Man! OR is ASL fading. We need to protect our beautiful language…. Lets work as a team to protect our language….. Thanks
November 29, 2007 at 1:53 am
Jack,….I agree with you 100 %
November 29, 2007 at 2:46 pm
Which means we all should NOT call any relay services, this way the relay interpreters get OUR messages that they knew what we found out what they did with money to “force” CI into the babie’s head. Once CI is implant, there will be no more deaf schools, no more ASL & few deafs of deaf parents on this planet. I can’t believed these video relay interpreters SUPPORT the CI not DEAF.
November 29, 2007 at 3:54 pm
Hi, Good morning to yall! This is very important to keep your eyes open wide and don’t let everyone control and whip deaf world down! Show them that deaf can do it and power sign language! Be proud who you are and have them respect deaf culture and world!

I never met Jennifer or Aidan until I saw Jennifer at Deaf nation that she was so rude to Aidan. She was screaming at her. Aidan kept cool and continued to listen to Jennifer. Aidan tried to give the balloon back to Jennifer for her kid but Jennifer told her off and left. Jennifer tried to cover her butt for not doing anything. Jennifer had repeated everything what Aidan had said in her vlog. I guess Jennifer tried to manipulate that Aidan and you were bad guy. I could see anger in her eyes that scared me. Aidan never blamed on the Deaf community or CSD in South Dakota. I don’t understand why she got the idea. She is so wrong and not nice lady.
Aidan and Jack: Keep up with all good work.. It is a wake up call for all of us..

Out of Curious, I wonder Does NAD (National Association of the Deaf) aware of this ? what’s their action? just wonder…..
November 30, 2007 at 10:55 pm
CI is new thing that we deafies are afraid of…. Well, it is part of modern process of civilization. To me CI is great for future of present deaf babies…
We have to remember that deafness researches have rights to TSF because there are wordings in policy that enabling any one to get grants to focus on deafness… US gov’t are on CI side to save tax monies that spent on SSI and interpreting service, etc…
November 30, 2007 at 11:03 pm
I was very shocked too. It is outrage public money is used for CI’s!
Keep in mind before boycotting – there are two different funds.
Interstate TRS Fund – only pays for Internet Relay, VRS and Interstate (calls made between two different states) relay calls
State fund – pays for intrastate (in THAT State) and local relay calls.
Boycott the state relay calls, not IP Relay or VRS cuz they have nothing to do with it – totally different Federal money.

What is Aiden Mack’s Vlogger/Blogger web site about this please? I could not find it. help please. Thanks much.
December 1, 2007 at 3:07 pm
Thanks for the serious warning about TSF being used for CIs which was passed by South Dakota legislature. Will keep an eye on any stupid legislation being brought up in New York State. Keep up with yoiur good work in letting all of us know.

I AGREE WITH YOU 100 % ABOUT AGAINST C.I. AND TSF.
December 5, 2007 at 12:15 am
I won’t be surprised about Telecommunication Service Fund due to the political medical reason since American Medical Association established Political Action Committee to strengthen the cause of organized medicine by making campaign contributions to medicine-friendly candidates running for the US House of Representatives or Senate.
It is very similar to stem cell which is very curable but they don’t want because they want MONEY so they know how to play politics
I think rallying is not a good idea. Speaking up or sending letters means nothing. If you sent any letter or email to the congressman, senator, house of reps or USA President, they would refer you to the NAD. Most importantly, we need to move from being reactive to proactive
Take our action proactively
1. Inform NAD to do something
2. Focus on the American Medical Association and understand their perspective
3. Do some kind of research, summarize the facts and make better recommendation
3. Hire someone like very strong lobbyist or organization maybe asking Ralph Nader for the assistance
4. Coordinate with the committee to follow up the status
5. Expand public media – radio, newspaper, tv, movies, etc
6. Positive outcome for both our community and country

December 13, 2007 at 3:56 pm
JACK, I AGREE WITH YOU AND KEEP UP GOOD WORK AND I DONT NEED COCHLEAR IMPLANT WHY SHOULD I?? NAH ASL IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ORAL…GOD BLESS YA…
December 28, 2007 at 1:12 am
I agree with you and It really upset me too because I graduated ISD I am proud of it!! and 1,500 deaf in hearing school, not in ISD! ISD about 300 students in 10 years later they will sign Langauge SEE not ASL! I have been fighting with one interpter about ASL and SEE sign laugauge. I am lost to them I think SEE beat ASL! I am not happy about it! One of my friend was use cochlear implant and does not like it and it was waste money!! she never use it again ever and one of my teacher had one and remove it and I don’t think cochlear implant in the children real work!
May 21, 2008 at 1:57 am
Boy…. More shames coming from CSD….. I think Jack or some one from NAD should let the State Senator in S.D. know about this and then the FCC would get involved to investigate, someone will be having a porblem with it. Then the funds will stop! Can you do that Jack? This looks bad for us as the Deaf community….. mmmmm
