I suddenly feel as if we

I suddenly feel as if we could run circles around these people by just learning the rules. Oh wait, we started doing that when Dr Paul was running. haha

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

What scum.

What scum.

Here's the exact rule

Assembly Rules 12:3 "After a roll call vote has commenced, no motion is in order until the results are announced by the Speaker"

Edit: Whoops, just realized they spell it out in the intro to the video. Wasted my time looking that up :P

It's ridiculous and obviously

It's ridiculous and obviously a shame that it happened, but I feel like I'm becoming numb to this type of thing. It doesn't surprise me.

The horror that she and her ilk won't be able to visit horrors on the People.

It was so blatant that I paused it and took a screen shot: http://postimg.org/image/871u6osbb/

When they revote, and it

When they revote, and it passes....will they invalidate it, and ask to "look at the language"

The People need to show up for the vote

The People should be there en mass to citizens arrest these traitors when they act in this fashion.

The vote is scheduled for Monday June 17th at 10 am, in Committee room 11 on the 4th floor of the State House Annex.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I'd say, save that energy

I'd say, save that energy when its needed, when you guys as one nation, finaly stands up and says as one "enough is enough"
edit:maybe your already there, i dont think these things are calculable, that just another beauty of it.....but i do thing you chaps and ladies are long overdue for one...

But gathering there to show them that people still care about these things, hell yeah......i think that is something not many people can ignore.....and if they continue to do so in the face of that, well, your plan will no doubt start to sound pretty good by then

And the unfunny thing about it, is that they litterally bring it on themselves, and some dont realise it, that it is a REACTION, to THEIR ACTION

Playing the "victim", by "playing" dumb, or being WILLFULLY uneducated just infuriates and quickens their demise in "authority"

The info you provided.....that right there.....that right there! +1......million :)

............ :[ How many

............ :[

How many instances of this happens, that as the op says, people DONT get to know.

If they dont know the rules, and WHY, the rule is there, then they should not be in office, and when when slips through the crack, and shows themselves, they should lose their position, im sure that would impart a little sense for those others who have slipped through the crack to understand why you cant just do whatever the hell you want.....its not just yourself you are representing

The WIN here

The WIN here is the amount of education the good guys received, even though we all know how bitter it tastes.

And the EVIL EMPIRE exposed themselves for having absolutely NO RESPECT for the law, to EVERYBODY that watches this video.

Great job for all those that worked to get this to DP and elsewhere.

corruption at every level

seems like the CDC invented a virus called Dipshititus and infected
any and everyone sloshing on the taxpayer dole ( some call it work, hell, I can't tell) -Need a good doctor to offer up a remedy, soon!

Make a motion

Could one of the other councilmen had made a motion to finish the vote?
Why didn't someone make a motion "To finish the vote" and see if it gets a 2nd?
Just curious.
If they had done that, seems the Chairman would be "bound" to vote on that order, and complete the vote, if enough supported it.
When this kind of crap goes on in public office, those elected need to be the ones "sticking" their necks out..."for the people".
That's what they are sent to do...REPRESENT the people.
I make a motion to have these "Bloomberg Puppets" removed from office come next election.
Can I get a 2nd?

This is where understanding

This is where understanding roberts rules and masons rules are important. They should have appealed from the decision of the chair and finished the vote. NONE OF THESE PEOPLE KNEW THE RULES, they didn't get cheated they were uneducated and got out maneuvered.


I smell

Me some Bloomberg.

Civil disobediance

They are begging for it on a massive scale. How the hell does people like some of these get into office? do they "count" the votes themselves?

No, they don't exactly count the votes themselves...

They use Diebold machines and the political machine takes care of the rest.

lodge a complaint

Unbelievable! I called my representative. No luck there! I called an assemblyman who is a member of that specific committee and at that meeting. Turns out he can't take any action against the violation. WHAT? I was directed to lodge a complaint with the speaker. I was glad to hear they have already received complaints but... frustrated to hear the justification for why it was moved to the budget committee. It needs to go to another committee so it will be passed through to the floor for a vote.

NJ residents need to call and lodge a complaint with the Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver

The complaint is against Charles Mainor for violating Rule 12:3 of the general assembly of the state of new jersey.

June 6th Law and Public Safety Committee - vote on a4182/s2723

Rule 12:3. No Motions During Roll Call Vote.
After a roll call vote has commenced, no motion is in order until the results are announced by the Speaker

More people need to learn how to perform a citizen's arrest!


...This is insane!

People of NJ! Do not let this happen!

SPEAK UP. Do not go without your voice being HEARD!

It is more powerful than most believe.

SPEAK UP to end this insane corruption!

And put these criminals in JAIL for breaking the LAW! Immediately!

Keep your eye on the prize! - Ending legal tender laws in order for the Federal Reserve System to self-destruct is of the upmost importance.
