Virginia Cavaliers, 29-3; 16-2

Virginia Cavaliers
I'm still frustrated with the women's basketball program at Virginia who finished the season at 17-13, now waiting for an invitation to WNIT sometimes next week. I don't know if the team will be able to receive an immediate help from 6'3 Mone' Jones, 6'4 Debra Ferguson and 6'4 Shakyna Payne when they come to Charlottesville next year. If at least two out of 3 freshmen can alleviate the pressures on Sarah Imovbioh & Lauren Moses, then the team will be in a good shape and in a right direction. If not, it is going to be a long season for us all.

On other hand, I'm thrilled to see what Head Coach Tony Bennett has done for Virginia Cavaliers Men's Basketball team.  Last year, the team went 30-7, won the ACC Regular Season and ACC Tournament Championships. This year, the team won the ACC Regular Season Championship but was upset by North Carolina Cheaters Tar Heels in ACC Tournament. Well, in two seasons, 3 out of 4 ACC Championships are just great. Last year, they received No. 1 seeding and reached the Sweet Sixteen where they lost to Michigan State by two. This year, I think the team will receive No. 2 seeding.

We lost in ACC Tournament because I think the team was not used to have Justin Anderson back after he missed 8 games due to the injury & appendectomy. Not only that, I'm not sure if Landon Perrantes is 100% healthy after sustaining the broken nose a couple of weeks ago. Not only that, it is always difficult to play in Greensboro Coliseum where in the last 26 ACC Finals in Greensboro, Duke and UNC combined for 19 titles. Next year? Washington, DC's Verizon Center. It is about time that the ACC gets out of that shithole.

But I can say one thing:  Virginia Cavaliers will remain to be very good team next year.

Anthony Gill & Head Coach Tony Bennett
  • The next year's edition will lose only one starter in Darion Atkins. 
  • They practically return everyone else.  Malcolm Brogdon, Anthony Gill, Justin Anderson, Evan Nolte and Landon Perrantes will return. 
  • Not only that, the ACC Sixth Player of the Year Mike Tobey also will return. 
  • Oh, yeah, freshmen Isaiah Wilkins, Jack Salt, B.J. Stith & Marial Shayok and redshirt freshman Devon Hall will return with plenty of their playing time under their belts.  
  • Wait!  Darius Thompson, who was rated No. 4 as overall combo guard in 2012-13, will begin to play after his transfer from Tennessee Volunteers.
  • The newest recruit of Virginia Cavaliers, a huge post player in 240 lbs, 6'9 Jarred Reuter will fill in nicely. Some people compared him to North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough.
  • There is undecided recruit named Thon Maker, a 7'0 post player from Australia. Virginia is one of several schools on his list. Virginia already had an Australian player in Jack Salt. So Thon has another Australian teammate should he sign with Virginia.
  • And most important of all:  We have Head Coach Tony Bennett and you do not. 
As you can see, Virginia is going to stay in Top 10 for a long time.  Get used to it, folks.  Go Hoos!

ESPN's I Hate Christian Laettner

First of all, I'm a hard core fan of Virginia Cavaliers.  Always had, has and will be.

But when I was in high school, I admitted that I had a little crush on Christian Laettner.  Back in his high school days in the suburbs of Buffalo, New York - he was recruited by every Division I school. But he narrowed down to 3:  Duke, North Carolina & Virginia.

He chose Duke and led Duke to four Final Four appearances including the National Champions. He is famous for hitting the winning basket at the buzzer to beat Kentucky, 104-103 in overtime.

He will be featured on ESPN's show named 30 for 30, "I Hate Christian Laettner".  I'm not sure if I plan to watch that episode because I will watch The Walking Dead.

However, I stumbled upon this post by a fan of Virginia Cavaliers on a message board whom he talked about his sons & his encounter with  Christian Laettner at a local gas station in Durham, NC.  Read what he has to say about Christian.  Very classy.

Christian, you are an idiot.



* * *

'Christian' Laettner -- When this turd was playing at Duke, I pulled up to get gas at a station on Roxboro Rd, in Durham NC -- 

I had spent a really nice Saturday afternoon playing BB with both my sons, ages 7, 9 -- at a nice outdoor court on Hamlin Rd near our home.

When I was inside the store, a car pulled up, and the guy behind the counter said "hey that's Laettner"-- His dad said " make sure he pays ..." --

Everyone laughs, including me. BUT I stand around to watch the dude pumps his gas and then floats around the car (Brian Davis was in the passenger seat).

I step outside the store - Now my sons recognize the guy - They are standing in the back of my Blazer with the window down , all excited - The oldest says -"Hey Dad It's Christian Laettner!!!!!" - The youngest is jumping up and down - The oldest says "Can he sign my ball daddy?!!"

I said "ok boys -- ask him and he will I'm sure" --

Standing there - with my two sons all excited to see a 'star' ---- imagine how they felt to see 'Christian' Laettner -- or hear him -- Literally point to my UVA bumper sticker - and get in his dumbassed convertible with his Brian Davis boy - and flip my little boys the bird and yell "Fuck Virginia" as he drove off without paying for the gas.

POS is what he is.

I will never ever respect Duke because of this ass.

No, I don't like the Muslims of Bosnia-Herzegovina

"No, I do not like Muslims of Bosnia-Herzegovina."

That sentence got me suspended on Facebook for 30 days.  I never made a threat or bully anyone else. I simply responded to someone who asked me if I don't like Bosnia-Herzegovina. I basically told her that I do not like the MUSLIMS who resided in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

If you study the conflicts in The Balkan States, you would know that the Muslims in Bosnia-Herzegovina always pose a threat to any kind of peace for the last 600 years. It was in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina that the World War I first sprang after the Assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand.  He was killed by 19 years old Bosnian Serb, Gavrilo Princip.

Gavrilo Princip was not a Muslim but his family were Christian peasants cowered before the Muslim Landlords who oppressed against the Christian peasants.  Let's stroll back to the Ottoman Empire, the land in the Balkan States were generally Orthodox Christians (Serb, Eastern, Greek & Russian).  When the Ottoman Empire (100% Muslims) conquered the area, what did they do?  They snatched all young boys from Christian families and sent them to Istanbul as part of Janissary. The Sultan of the Ottoman Empire would provide food, clothing & shelter to these vulnerable Christian boys as he had his staff to brainwash & convert these Christian boys into hard-core Muslims.  When they grew to be adults, they became very loyal to the Sultan so much that they would serve the Sultan in wars. When they completed their service to the Sultan, what did the Sultan do to these Muslims boys? The Sultan sent them back home to Bosnia-Herzegovina.

It should be a happy homecoming for these boys who were kidnapped from the Christian peasants when they returned home, right? But no, the boys rejected their real Christian parents.  During the Ottoman Empire, the Muslims seized the good lands and banished Christians into the mountains. These boys who became the Muslims, thanks to the Sultan, seized towns, properties and land - they became the Muslim Landlords who oppressed against the poor and devastated Christians. These Christians are Croatians, Montenegrins, Bosnian Serbs, Serbians, Macedonians and Kosovars.

The Sultan of the Ottoman Empire has succeeded where others has failed - he used the kidnapped boys to turn against their real families all over the Balkan States even as of today.  For centuries, Muslims has oppressed and terrorized the Christians in the region so much that the Christian generations loathed the Muslims in the region.  The Muslims often murdered the Christians and never got prosecuted. The Christians does not forget what the Muslims did. The Muslims would behead many Bosnian Serbs and used them to decorate the walls in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

So Gavrilo Princip assassinated the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand to make a statement - he wanted Bosnia-Herzegovina to be part of Greater Serbia under the Christian rule, not part of Great Austrian-Hungarian Empire or the Ottoman Empire.  So the slaughter between the Bosnian Serbs & Bosnian Muslims escalated for many decades.

In 1990s, the Bosnian Muslims brought the Islamic Extremists to the region where they murdered many Bosnian Serbs. Many were beheaded and the Muslims used these decapitated heads to play soccer.  Of course, you don't see that in the American or European newspapers. But the Bosnian Serbs knew what the Muslims were doing. And yes, the Serbs did do the right thing to retaliate and massacre the Muslims from time to time.

It is quite amazing that the Muslims in Bosnia-Herzegovina acted like they were innocent & victims. They were not.  And the Americans should not protect the Muslims in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the first place.  By doing that, the Americans literally supported the oppression of other religions in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

This is why I do not like the Muslims of Bosnia-Herzegovina, they were not the victims. They were the oppressors, murderers and criminals. And Facebook decided to suspend me for another 30 days just because I said this sentence, "No, I do not like the Muslims of Bosnia-Herzegovina."

Facebook does not support free speech, most of Facebook moderators are from where?  Outside of the United States in Morocco, India & Mexico.  Morocco & India has millions of Muslims living in their countries so they were trying to silence me when I said I don't like the Muslims of Bosnia-Herzegovina.  Shame on Facebook, really. They allowed the video beheadings by Muslims against the Christians on Facebook but punished me for saying this simple sentence?   By being silent about it, Mark Zuckerberg is advocating the silence of free voices against the unjust oppressors like the Muslims.

Double jeers to Facebook for doing the criminal thing.

An Open Letter to Malcolm Peters & Kappa Gamma fraternity

Hello Malcolm Peters,
You might be surprised to get this email but you knew what happened in 1992. You were in Kappa Gamma fraternity. I was summoned to the interview in KG's basement chapter in Krug Hall. I was wearing a nice suit which I bought for $105 when I was a senior in HS from my savings. I clearly remembered YOU and Karl Ewan put the blindfold on my eyes and had me go around in circles inside your chapter.
When you took the blindfold off from my eyes, the interview began at that time. I can feel the heat on my left shoulder and on my right shoulder and I can feel that there are some kind of lights right there between my head. And I can feel something being poured on my suit - but I was focused on the interview which did not go very well.
After I finished the interview, you and Karl pulled me out and apologized profusely after I realized that your frat brothers spilled the fucking candle wax on my suit. It was not an accident, you deliberately allowed others to pour the candle wax.
I distinctly remembered you telling me not to report this to Campus Activities and you said I can take the suit to the dry cleaner to clean it up. I remembered Karl Ewan urging me to heed your advice. I caved in to your persistent requests so I went to the dry cleaner - they told me that it is no good - candle wax will leave the stains permanently on my suit. So in other words, the Kappa Gamma fraternity ruined my 2 years old suit at that time.
I should have ignored and reported you and your fraternity to the Campus Activities about what you freaks did to me and my suit. At that time, I was upset that I lost it but at the time, I did not want to jeopardize my chances by reporting this incident - You have to understand one thing, it was my first suit that I personally bought for $105.00 on MY OWN.
I would like to know why did you freaks do that to me (and more likely, the others)? The candles placed between my head during the interview, why? To play, to mock, to taunt? It was not an accident like you claimed it to be. If it was a small stain, I would understand. But BOTH SHOULDERS WERE COVERED WITH CANDLE WAX!! It means what? Some one of you deliberately poured it on my shoulders.
And Malcolm Peters, it is disturbing that you are a teacher at ISD. You and your fraternity needs to be accountable for what you did to me and my suit. And yes, Malcolm, I'm going to post this on my blog, my wall & Deaf Thought Police.
I remembered the ones who interviewed in front of me: Alan Amann, Brian Bippus & John Hencker.
And now, I want you or others to come forward and tell me WHO did do this to me during the fucking interview back in 1992. I don't care if this incident was 23 years ago, you and others still owed me the answers as well as $105.
Now, why did I mention this today? Because someone asked me if it was true that I did have an interview with Kappa Gamma fraternity when I was at Gallaudet, the memories quickly flooded my mind and I did not realize that I suppressed & buried the incident until today.
You're now a teacher at IndianaSD, if you have any values, you will tell me who did do this and be accountable along with your fraternity!!!

Bad Ones & Good Ones

My late Dad and I have something in common:  Our love & passion for the newspapers.

Dad used to work at many publications that produced newspapers. Dad worked at The Daily Press, Richmond Times-Dispatch, Richmond News Leader, Baltimore Sun, The Hopewell News, The Washington Post, Washington Times, The Bourbon County Citizen-Advertiser, Lexington Herald-Leader, The Roanoke Times, The Roanoke Star-Sentinel and Colorado Springs Gazette. My father does not write articles. But he worked in publishing area as Linotypist. In my opinion, I still think my Dad's skills on Linotypist was just incredible and fast.

Dad told me of several stories of The Washington Post in the basement/ground level - all linotypists are there.  More than 100 Deaf people works part-time or full-time at The Washington Post. I may be wrong but I know for sure, Dad said that working at The Washington Post is always fun because there are so many Deaf people working & chatting as they took care of press. The owner of The Washington Post was Katharine Graham, one of most powerful women in Washington. However, Graham was a great advocate of Deaf people in Virginia, DC & Maryland mostly by giving the jobs to Deaf people from all over the region PLUS Gallaudet students.

Dad said that in the basement/ground level, there is a small hallway where you leave a big room into small hallway to get in bathrooms over there. But the problem is:  Too many Deaf people smoking weed waiting for their press to finish its job. Katharine knew all of it, she's fine with it. She often come down to take a cigarette break which was beyond the small hallway - so she did not go nuts when the smell of Marijuana was permeated all over the small hallway.  When Katharine retired, she passed it on to  her son who in turn pushed Deaf employees out - today, I do not know of any Deaf person working at The Washington Post.  Figures
My name - Dad & His Linotype equipment.

My father and I knew how to make successful related to publications, the perfect English is just hogwash and unimportant. Perfect English won't make your newspaper successful. Like Dad told me a long time ago about perfect English:

"Why must we have the perfect English while many subscribers are high school dropouts regular commoner  - It is pointless to use perfect English while many would not understand at all. The most important is the meats itself, not fancy English."

Even after Dad left the newspaper industry for the career at USPS, Dad do miss it very much. In fact, when my father retired from the USPS, he went ahead to form a monthly newsletter called Richmond Metro Deaf Community News on his own and shortly afterwards, he offered Richmond Club of the Deaf, Inc to adopt and finance the RMDCN. RCD approved it. My Dad is very meliticous
  • The Virginia Guide (writer & student editor - this is for teachers, alumni, personnel, parents, deaf schools,) 
  • Twin Fountains (writer/EIC)
  • Jr. VAD Newsletter 
  • World Around You 
  • The Buff and Blue
  • Gallaudetians
  • Home Team Sports now known as Comcast SportsNet (Internship)
  • PBS Online (Internship)
  • Silent News 
  • VAD Bulletin
  • DeafNation
  • blogging 
  • vlogging
As you can see, I was well-versed when it comes to journalism. This kind of field is something that I always enjoyed the most. Dad taught me, Dad's friends told me stories about ITU (I bet you that these Honors students who worked at The Buff and Blue has no clue about ITU and they probably will google it up and say, she knew all along just to make themselves look good. *rme*

Let's start with bad ones (even some of the bad ones are my friends):

Dave Evans
Dragan Jaksic
Neil McDevitt
Shirley Shultz-Myers
Tom Willard
Rob Koch
Matthew Moore
Robert Weinstock
Chris Kaftan
Tiffany Green
Dan McVay
Mich Gerson
Allison Kaftan
Sara Robinson
Louise Stern
Pia Marie Paulone

At last, here's good ones:

Wayne Dingledine
Rachel Bavister
Mike Marzolf
Frances Marzolf
The late Erin Whitney
Beth Szymanski
The late Chanda Smith
Trudy Suggs
Terry Giansanti
Jennifer Perlis
Carl Denney
Mikey Krajnak
The late Sarah Pack
Tara Schupner-Congdon
Joel Barish
Jed Barish
Jon Kovacs
Jake Temby
Erin Wilkinson
Manny Vazquez
Merritt Holloway
Jason Lamberton
Eric Hamlow
Sandy Ewan
Teddy Ewan
Darlene Ewan
Travis Imel
Dylan Westbury
Jennifer Sale
Wendy Sale
Melinni Taylor
Elisa Abenchuchan
Alex Abenchuchan

Most of the times, the bad ones were obsessed with perfect English would claim The Buff and Blue as their domain just because they have a good command of English so the Editorial Team is for them, not you. That kind of mentality. I can't stand them because nothing is far from the truth. Having a perfect command of English does not mean that you're a good writer or editor.

I noticed that too many Deaf people thought that since they are good with English, they are also great writers/storytelling.  It is only hogwash. Want some proof?  In Ely Center's Post Office, I usually see litter of BnB newspapers all over the floor - Why?  People pull it out of their PO Boxes and quickly glanced at it and thought it was a waste of their time, "Ugh, boring." And they threw it on the floor. So many BnB issues was all over the Post Office floors on every Friday.

Yes, every Friday!!

During the 2000s, my blogs generated thousands of hits/views all over the country and beyond.  I was the one-man show on my blog which was very popular among Deaf people. I literally run my own blog - and I occasionally asked Erin Whitney to guest blogging in and impersonate as McFly or Karen von Pills from time to time, it depends on the situation. Why did I want her to guest blog? Because I know that the hits/views will soar if i get people to rub the salt in any wound and ignited the controversial issues.

On other hand, was created by Adam Stone and Rob Rice. They selected individuals who has the "so called" outstanding English skills. Many students on DeafDC are either in Honors program and/or Editors of The Buff and Blue or at NTID.  These fools except for Brendan Stern sucked at writing the story. They thought that they're good at writing articles or stories just because they have a good command of English. Often their articles on DeafDC can be so dry and disconnect from the reality- I mean, it is very blank article so much that you would think licking a white paper is better than reading their articles. Sorry for being offensive, but it is the truth.

My blog got thousands of views/hits daily, twice the numbers than DeafDC. Look, They had staff about 6-10 bloggers running and I was the only one on my own and I still get twice the hits than did! Look at me - the only one blogger versus 10 bloggers and I still whip them!!

How is that possible?  Because I know people. Because I know how to connect with ordinary people. Because I know people's buttons. Because I know the networking. Because I know how to ignite controversial stuff.

I remembered one time at Fowler Hall's lobby, one guy on the "bad ones" who was in Honors program, former Editor in Chief and a contributor to DeafDC confronted me in a lobby. He told me that my English sucked. He still do not understand why I get thousands of views than him. I told him this happened because I can connect with ordinary people, and he can't.

Later, the other time I bumped into Adam Stone -we had a nice conversation - it was much cordial, really. Then he said, "I write better than you, I don't know why people prefers yours over mine." I told him, stop using the big words. As if he knew how to use it - I don't think he gets it. You would notice that he would try to remind people that he is getting the doctorate degree. To remind them that he's smart. Whatever.

At that time, I also noticed that the BnB Editorial Team always passed it onto others who were in Honors program. Despite the fact that I knew how to edit, organize, delegate & write up for 3 small papers at VSDB, I never got a chance to be interviewed by anyone in the Buff and Blue. Not even once. When I fill out the application, I expressed the interest to work with Editorial Team because Media is my thing. It runs in my family generations.

But these assholes who runs the BnB kept me away - they would ask me to write up on sports, features and I was obliged to do that. I'm all for it because I truly believe in spreading the information to all.

What comforts me the most is seeing The Buff and Blue newspapers becoming a cosmic joke & irrelevant in 1990s. These so-called Honors students who were on the editorial team repeatedly failed to achieve the professional level along with the quality of tidbits that the community wanted to see and read - In a span of 10 years except for one was so bad that people would sneer at the BnB with funny & offensive jokes. Yea, every Fridays, it never failed me to see the hundreds of The Buff and Blue littering all over the floors at  Ely Center's Gallaudet Post Office.

When I said on my previous paragraph, "In a span of 10 years except for one" - One?  Who was the One?  Terry Giansanti, he was dynamic. Too bad, I did not join his team - at that time, I gave up on the BnB trying to break through the barrier created by these idiotic Honors students. Terry consistently puts in top quality articles on the BnB week in and out. During that year when Terry ran the Buff and Blue, it was refreshing to see a clean floor at the Gallaudet Post Office on every Friday.
It was rare to see an issue of the Buff and Blue littering during the Giansanti Year. If you don't see any newspapers on the floor at Gallaudet Post Office, it means that the Editors of The Buff and Blue has done the right job.

I will never forget what Shirley Shultz-Myers said to me after I complained to her (She was one of three Staff Advisors along with the late Brenda Keller & Robert Weinstock for The Buff and Blue back then) about the fact that the staff at the BnB kept on preventing me from joining the team. Know what she said to me?

"You're not in Honors English?  That's why you don't get it."

Fuck you, Shirley.

Allowing the Honors students to control The Buff and Blue was the worst decision in 1990s, their quality of articles & was not top-notched, it was amateurish at its best! Even with the fact that during my stay at Gallaudet for many years, I still failed to be an edtor of something at BnB, thanks to these "bad ones".

Like Gallaudet Athletic Department? Credit goes to Mike Weinstock

In the last few weeks, Gallaudet Bison football team has garnered the attention all over the country about its undefeated season.

Needless to say, it is a good publicity for Gallaudet. Especially with Gallaudet Athletic Department. I know how much Mike Weinstock puts his energy and time in this.

When Richard Pelletier was the Athletic Director, I can tell that he is not the type of person who is willing to push for the changes that propel Gallaudet's Athletic Department to the next level. I recall having few conversations with him about the needs to change. He would say, "No money, ask IKJ." several times.

When James DeStefano took over as the Athletic Director, he said the same thing when Sandy Ewan, me, and many others would try to talk about doing things to improve all teams, weight rooms, training rooms, meeting rooms, locker rooms, sports information office, football field, track, baseball field, soccer field et al. Whenever I entered the Field House, I don't feel "collegiate gymnasium", I feel that we are in "high school gymnasium".

James said, "No money, ask IKJ." That drove me nuts. That really frustrated me and Sandy Ewan. The buck just stops with IKJ, they always said that. We would have a long conversation about what Gallaudet can be if there are someone who is willing to make changes in spite of budget restraints.

When they built a new indoor swimming pool, I remembered Sandy Ewan battling I. King Jordan about getting the pool to be on the Olympic standard so that during the summertime, we can rent the pool to hearing swim organizations. Sandy knew that by doing that, we would make some money. I. King Jordan refused. And today, the pool is not equivalent of Olympics standard. So not many organizations wanted to rent Gallaudet's pool, so we lost $$. That was the last straw for Sandy. Sandy ultimately turned against I. King Jordan. And so did I.

I remembered asking Sandy Ewan who would be the best candidate to change everything from scratch. Sandy said, "Mike Weinstock". He went on to explain that not many people liked him but you can't deny the hard facts, wherever he goes, his teams flourished. He always found a way for his program to survive & grow. I had an opportunity to work under Mike and it was just great experience. I can say one thing: Mike knew his stuff.

Prior to the Gallaudet 2006 Protests, I noticed something alarming on a website, There were some people talking about Catholic University of America (CUA) being frustrated with Gallaudet's failures to make the CAC competitive. There were fans & sports reporters at Catholic, Marymount & Mary Washington talking about kicking Gallaudet out and get some school in so that its conference can be legitimate to have 2 or 3 teams qualify for any postseason tournament. But with Gallaudet on the bottom of the conference year in and out, it does do nothing but to slow other schools' performances.

I warned some people about it back on my old blog that sooner or later, don't be surprised that the CAC will kick us out even with the fact that we are the founding member of the conference. That's how fed up they are with Gallaudet Athletic Department. Some people believed me, some did not. After the 2006 Protests, Dr. Davila came in and made a quick change - he booted James DeStefano out and put Mike Weinstock in.

But that was too late, Catholic University of America and Goucher College has announced that they will leave the CAC to another stronger conference, Landmark in 2007. Both schools cited Gallaudet as one of several factors that pulled the other schools down from making the CAC stronger. The CAC took the action on this by telling Gallaudet to get out.

Even we founded the conference, they wanted us out. They felt that Gallaudet did not make an effort to do something about our programs. So Gallaudet was dumped by CAC, just like that. Mike Weinstock had a lot of work to do and he did do it in a short time. He found the ECFC for Gallaudet football, and they eventually joined the NEAC for other sports.

Mike Weinstock did not waste his time in making things happen. He improved the Hall of Fame, locker rooms, meeting rooms, football field with new artificial turf, Hoy Field, coach changes et al. He came up with a new logo, a brand new website and so on. Each time I see him announcing something new for the Athletic Department, I go "YES YES YES!"

Again, Mike knew his stuff.

Now we have women's basketball team that went to NCAA Tournament recently. Our baseball team has improved tremendously after the hiring of Curtis Pride. Volleyball's team is always good at Gallaudet but in the last couple of years, we have advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Oh, yeah, swimming teams has improved dramatically in the last 5 years. And the best part is that when you enter Field House and/or Hotchkiss Football Field, you can feel it is collegiate level.

Mike knew that by doing the changes, this atmosphere will do nothing but to motivate its players to excel in academics & athletics.

This is why Gallaudet football team is now 9-0. Yes, the boys worked hard to reach this undefeated record. Kudos to all of them. But the bottom line is: Mike Weinstock is the guy that made everything happen. For that, he has my utmost respect. I just wish that Sandy Ewan was alive to see this as well.

Oh, please!

Editor's Note:  I was encouraged by people to post this up on a public blogsite regarding the lawsuit instigated by Angela McCaskill. So here it is.



* * *

As of now, I'm in bed and at the same time I'm reading the 39-page lawsuit by Angela McCaskill against Gallaudet, MJ Bienvenu & Kendra Smith. 

In fact, this lawsuit claimed that after Angela told T. Alan Hurwitz about her meeting with MJ Bienvenu where MJ bluntly criticized Angela for signing the anti-gay petition for a referendum to put the same sex on state ballot in Maryland. I thought MJ did do the right thing by confronting her to give Angela a piece of MJ's mind. 

As for Angela, she immediately acted like she was a victim. She claimed that MJ discriminated against her because of her religious beliefs, of her race, of her belief in traditional marriage, and of her sexual orientation.

Her sexual orientation? Angela claimed that MJ discriminated against her because she is straight.

Oh, please.

Angela immediately pulled the race card to decry MJ for catching her name on the petition and got humiliated. In other words, Angela claimed that if she was white, MJ would not confront her on this subject. But since she is African American, MJ went after her. 

Oh, please.

Angela claimed that she signed the petition to put the same sex marriage on the state ballot is not because she is against the marriage equality. By putting her name on the petition, she felt that what she did will enable people to discuss and learn from each other openly.

Oh, please.

Angela claimed that when the news raced across the Kendall Green, MJ & Kendra effectively ruined her integrity & reputation on the campus. The reputation that she worked hard to maintain at Gallaudet for more than 20 years.

Oh, please. 

Angela claimed that MJ & Kendra was the one who reported to Drago Renteria's and supplied her with information regarding Angela's signature on the petition. 

Oh, please.

Angela claimed that the malice against her by MJ Bienvenu, Kendra Smith, bloggers & vloggers were designed to "embarrass, humiliate, torment and cause her to have a severe emotional distress." She claimed that after everything, she suffered depression, sleep deprivation, lack of concentration, loss of memory, irritability, loss of appetite, hypertension, anxiety,paranoia, fear, intimidation, grief, and severe hot flashes.

Oh, please.

Angela said that the University did not act to reprimand MJ for harassment. What? Just because she confronted her in person and criticized her only *once*, that constituted an act of harassment?

Oh, please.

Angela claimed that MJ & Kendra spreads with false, vicious and humiliating rumors about her being an anti-gay, crippled her ability to keep the trust with diversity at Gallaudet.

Oh, please. 

Angela strongly believe that the petition to ban same sex marriage referendum was not anti-gay. She just wanted to see it on referendum so that people can debate about it to educate the public at large. 

Oh, please. 

Angela claimed that T. Alan Hurwitz has ordered to cut the funds on Angela's Office of Diversity & Inclusion by $53,000 (Or 32%) which ultimately made her office totally ineffective in carrying the tasks out to the community.

Oh, please. 

Angela claimed that during the Faculty Senate, she was abused verbally, condescending, castigated by others which resulted in her being embarrassed, humiliated & lack of respect. 

Oh, please.

I could go on and on and on for the next 20 pages. And I won't. I stopped at #17 of 39 pages because it was redundant thing to deal with. My respect for Angela is gone primarily because she won't acknowledge, own it up, man it up & recognize that the petition *is* anti-gay.

Instead, you get to see her being defiant as well as using the race card to shield herself and to turn the tables upon people who confronted her for signing the anti-gay petition. She immediately claimed that they were harassing or demeaning her just because she is Deaf Black Christian Woman. This brat is clever by using the race card to act as a victim when she is not like that.

The University reserved the right to demote or fire any employee for speaking out on things that may contradict their job position. I believe it was in several states where a professor was fired for contradicting her beliefs publicly. Some professors sued and went to the state supreme court. And these people who sued lost their cases. The Courts said that the University has the rights to remove anyone who might contradict the university's vision & mission.

And so far, Angela is playing as a victim of "racism" by acting like everyone was out to harm, ruin or destroy her, and so far, she won't admit that what she did with the petition was anti-gay and wrong thing to do.

To make things worse, T. Alan Hurwitz, the current President of Gallaudet, was two-faced to Angela & MJ. When Angela whimpered & ran to T. Alan Hurwitz after MJ criticized her. Alan told Angela that MJ is wrong to do that and that MJ is a bully. Then the next day, Hurwitz ordered Angela to be placed on administrative on leave indefinitely. Why did T. Alan Hurwitz playing two-faced to Angela - why didn't he stick to what he said? He's is a big-time attention whore. Alan *should* reprimand MJ for her outbursts and he should not flip-flop on things like that. That's where his credibility was blown away when he said negative things on MJ one day and Angela the other day. You just cannot do that, folks.

However - Angela, give it up. Your son is a faggot and yet, you signed the petition to put the marriage equality on referendum - that means what? You're discriminating your own gay son!! What kind of a mother are you? OH, don't preach that you're a Christian. Who gives a damn about the fairy tales which can be found in the so-called Holy Bible.

Yes, the petition was anti-gay. Stop lying and own it up, Angela. She thought that being Deaf African American Woman certainly made her qualified to run the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. But there is a problem, she is not even qualified at all. She reeks of hypocrisy, that s for sure.
