What?! Oh, you mean actual leadership? Doing something he knows will be unpopular, but takes action for the safety of the people he was elected to serve? That's not how this country works now Phil. Didn't read the memo? Wait...

Fark You Buddy: This is why we can't have nice things

Fark all you assholes who won't wear a mask.


But when you wear a mask you are just rebreathing in the air you just exhaled. Its why surgery takes a while sometimes, surgeons/nurses are constantly passing out.

Up in my corner of NJ (I live among the Hill People), local social media is now filled with people genuniely losing their mind over not being able to eat indoors at a restaurant.

Heh, a buddy in upstate Jersey lives on a big lake, where his teenage daughter is a lifeguard.  I asked him about social distancing, and he just sighed.

"They're teenagers.  Their idea of social distancing is licking each other."

ViolentEastCoastCity: Kali-Ma: ViolentEastCoastCity: Schmerd1948: ViolentEastCoastCity: Schmerd1948: The weather is beautiful. It is very park there closing off one of the main streets on Saturday so people can dine alfresco. Plus you could always have a hotdog on your stoop. Problem solv-ed.

I assume you mean Asbury Park? ;

We visited Ocean Grove last weekend and saw that AP and Red Bank had streets closed off for dining.  It was a trip eating in the middle of the street.  Loved it.

yes, Asbury Park. My 'putter hate me. Thanks for clearing that up. Ocean Grove is perfect for quarantining.

It was so nice to be there.  We just went from the BnB to the beach and back, basically.  Just beautiful.  I miss living there so much (great up on the other side of AP in Loch Arbour).

Do I know you? (Grew up in Ocean Twp., part of it in Loch Arbour)

And you live in Maryland?  I'm in VA, formerly of DC and MD.

I mean, I lived in Loch Arbour from the mid 90s til 2011.  So maybe?


Mom? Dad????

gar1013: Butterflew: So happy. My husband's is a manager at a restaurant here in NJ and they were feeling very uneasy about opening. It's an olive garden, right? With 25% capacity that's 9 6top tables. They're already not allowed to ask people to leave, so he expected families sitting.... And sitting... For hours, while people are losng their minds in the parking lot because they've been waiting an hour to sit inside.

He's relieved. I'm relieved. Super proud of our governor for doing the right thing, putting people before profits and paying close attention to what happening around us.

We're going to be okay.

If it bothers him that much, he should have quit.


Yeah, that's constructive. He wasn't "bothered", he just knows what to expect from entitled asshole customers. But yeah, you're right, he should have thrown away his years of experience working there, his salary, bonuses, health insurance, life insurance, 401k, paid time off and everything else because they were worried about satisfying their clients and hoping their staff stays healthy. During a pandemic.

I mean... Seriously? fark you, dude.

durbnpoisn: I tell you about NJ.  Many people do not like our governor.  But I honestly do not know why.  He has stepped up to the plate with this whole thing.  It was because of his leadership that we got things under control at all.

So right now we have some outdoor dining.  Most of our favorite places have survived on take out alone.  Some of them are foregoing the whole "eat under a tent" thing.

It doesn't at all surprise me to find that indoor dining is just

not on the menu


Because he waffles/panders.  After forbidding various events, he happily marched with the black lives matter protest without social distancing. Then, immediately reopened the state in contradiction to his previous position as a result of the political blow-back without enough concrete guidelines in place.

He should have given his support without marching, while continuing to ask for social distancing, masks, and smaller gatherings.  That would have shown consistency and given him political capital to do what's needed to fight the pandemic.
