    I’m puzzled by all those on the right who claim they want law and order, but nevertheless are touting Sen. Nguyen as their hero in this incident. Normally, when the Chair of a meeting [guided by Roberts Rules of Order] rules that a speaker is out of order, that member may appeal the ruling to the body. Sen. Nguyen did not do this. She kept on speaking after ruled out of order. What can the Chair do in that instance? If he does nothing, what is to prevent the same event being repeated? If he rules the second speaker out of order, then tries to enforce his ruling, the second person will properly assert discrimination. Chaos ensues. Oh, and by the way, Human Rights has nothing to do with Sen. Nguyen’s actions. To claim that Sen. Nguyen was removed for “speaking out of turn.”

      Excellent research and editorial on topic!

      I saw this situation just as you did – that Senator Nguyen was out of order. I just didn’t have the facts.

      You are stating facts & history, not dramatic stunts for personal gain.

      I don’t know what Norberto was drinking – when he wrote this article but it is one of the first (I can remember) that was poorly researched and simply, nonsense.

      All good points but the fact is that Janet knew such a reaction would occur and she was seeking exactly that. Thus she went forth with the good old time tested tactic of red baiting to gin up her base for the sake of an election mailer and ink in the paper. Especially the Vietnamese papers. She played the whole lot of you for a trick.

    Norberto you got played like a guitar along with the Dem at the helm that day. She did that on purpose top provoke a response like this. She hit the lottery by being removed which was probably the stupidest thing in all of history that the senate dem leader cold have done. he played right into her trap. And now you are being played and your strings are being pulled by Janet to get juice out of red baiting.. This is embarrassing.

    In many respects the County is a “closed regime.” How are those PRA requests on the Bible Boygate coming along?
