A Deaf Latino with a hangover thought he caught the caronavirus but the test came back negative and his doctor ordered him to stop drinking Corona beer as he shown up drunk for his annual physicals.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.
Trump State of the Union: Transcription
(As usual, no ASL interpreter)
My fellow Americans, I'm still here (applause), first of all I want to thank Senator Ross of Kansas for the vote heard around the world that keep me in the Oval Office. Hold a second, I got to tweet to Putin telling him to stop hacking the teleprompters on the podium. We accomplishes a lot during the first term, eliminating the mandate to require health insurance, keeping our emergency rooms busier than ever. We got rid of Obamacare, simply by renaming it Trumpcare. allowing rotten kids to stay home bugging their parents until they are 26, and letting those with preexistence conditions to continue their dependence on opiates, causing skyrocketing premiums. Supreme Court declare it's unconstitutional to prevent pregnant woman from obtaining a visa, so I am going to modified my Pro-Life position allowing them to abort the fetus, after all, they are not citizens and we don't want their litters either. Hold a second, tweeting Kim Jong-Un, reminding him to watch C-Span. I appointed Dennis Rodman to to our Ambassador to North Korea, I will be in Pyongyang next week cut the ribbon of the our new Embassy and of course, we'll have a threesome golfing at our new sprawling Trump Tower Resort and Spa golf course. I will let Kim win, so he'll not have a temper-tantrum, shooting another missile into the Sea of Japan.More women are entering the workforce, I noticed an increase of prostitution on our streets. The rigged the Super Bowl and the Packers will beat the Chiefs. I signed an executive order to disqualified the 49ers because San Francisco is a sanctuary city. It's capital punishment if anyone in the NFL disrespect our flags. Pence is off the ticket, Jimmy Kimmel is my new running-mate. I'll have a new cabinet soon, I think it will be redwood. I want to take an opportunity at this time to announce that copies of my new book "John Bolton isn't in the Room" will be out on March 17th, that's the only time I read the New York Times, when it climb into first place on the best-selling list. I will like to thank Pink Floyd for the wall, I haven't seen it but I heard about it. The only solution to erase our national debts is to let Russia buyback Alaska. If Denmark wants to borrow money from the World Bank, Greenland must be put down as collateral so we can acquire the land once they default. We are leaving the Middle East so we can focus our resources fighting the drug cartels, letting the terrorists kill their kind. Let's retreat, returning Texas back to Mexico, the war is over, didn't we return Okinawa to Japan. Let Puerto Rico be an independent nation, like we did with Cuba and the Philippines, so we don't have to deal with their problems. I confesses to stealing the Star Trek logo for our new Space Force, we even now, with the USS Enterprise in port. If the Israelis and the Palestinians can't coexist, then return the Gaza Strip to Egypt, West Bank to Jordan, and Golan Heights to Syria and the United States will recognize Palestine if the all parties agreed to the boundaries. I promise to behave myself from here on, as my generals warns me of a military coup if I overstep the line in the sand. I ordered the shutdown of all Chinese restaurants to prevent the spread of bat virus, and will shut down Iran nuclear facilities to prevent the spread of radiation emissions, etc. I will protect the rights of Americans to bear arms and I am willing to curtail the freedom of the press, shut down social media from spreading false rumors, it doesn't applied to tabloids on the grocers' checkout lanes. That's all folks, and God Bless America. Mike Pompeo, you're fired!
This is the Fox network, we now return to our regular programming, returning to hell with Gordon Ramsey in the swamps, saving a former White House Chef restaurant from the brinks of bankruptcy.

Deaf tellers at Chase Bank near Gallaudet can now seve their Deaf consumers in ASL. Most of the staff are fluent in ASL. Finally the Deaf now can rob a bank without using a note, that's unlikely to happen at that branch, unless he's behind in his student loan payments. First a signing Starbuck, now a signing bank, and what's next. We even got a signing President that signs executive orders (rim shot). Gallaudet got a $250,000 donation from JP Morgan to deposit it at the Bank of America (really I don't know but a good monologue anyway) but not Wells Fargo, they hang up on us in the past. Besides, what's in your wallet?

Kobe Bryant is a role model that to all of us young Deaf basketball players who hope that someday they'll play in the NBA, even giving his support to a Deaf high school basketball coach, Sekoe White, of the Mississippi School for the Deaf, after seeing a video that went
Kobe given his team a signed copy of his upcoming book and another supplying his team Wilson basketballs, etc.
The Oklahoma School for the Deaf will soon start construction of its new state of the art $2 millions aquatic center. Its locker rooms also serves as a storm shelter to keeping students safe , especially during a tornado. I predicted one of their swimmers will win a gold medal at the Deaflympics someday.

Florida state troopers are now enforcing a new law against distracted driving, warning all of us to keep our eyes on the road for safety stake, as we now can be ticketed if we are caught texting, especially in a school zone. A Deaf couple in St. Augustine had their license suspended, when they were chatting using ASL, the judge refused to grant leniency, as the law specifically stated that we must keep our hands on the wheel.
We are AWARE of the problems in our community but we some of us don't ACKNOWLEDGE it, pretending it doesn't exist. We now ACCEPT the facts that crime, unemployment, health care and housing, etc. are some of the major issues we got to deal with. The new decade is here so let's take ACTION, making an ANNOUNCEMENT in local publications such as the Osceola News - Gazette of an upcoming ASSEMBLY of concerned Kissimmee citizens with an AGENDA to discuss the issues, setting our priority on AFFORDABLE housing, brainstorming ideas ourselves rather than hiring someone to do a feasibility studies. We will ASK the city if they got any land AVAILABLE for us to ACQUIRE so we can APPLY for government grants to hire an ARCHITECT to design an APARTMENT that is ACCEPTABLE to us all, with all the AMENITIES we expect. The complex can ACCOMMODATE those seniors on fixed income, homeless, transitional programs, and the Deaf and disabled, etc. The facility meet all ADA ACCESSIBILITY requirements, incorporating universal design and requiring that its staff to be bilingual in ASL (American Sign Language). The center will be full of ACTIVITIES such as field trips, workshops, and, of course, bingo. The new complex will be full of ARTS with sculptures on the grounds and completed puzzles in the hallways. The tenants will set up an ASSOCIATION to meet regularly, having AUTONOMY in the decision making process, being ACCOUNTABLE in budget matters. We will be AGGRESSIVE meeting the challenges, overcome obstacles, seeking an ALLIANCE of individuals, businesses, organizations and foundations to support our AIMS.
