    Interesting . As I was coming home from the beach last week on my bike a group of boys in front of me, kept cutting in front of cars narrowly missing getting hit. I couldn’t believe what I was looking at. Complete idiots. I’m glad someone else observed this and hopefully caught up with them. Community service is the answer for these lost boys that need direction.

    Reckless endangerment is on our books. I’d video the little dreams just to give it to law enforcement and even schools for safety training.

    #s 2&3 – Let’s not get carried away. We don’t need new laws or ordinances. Face it, our young people just aren’t up to snuff. Some of them just won’t make it to their adult years for various reasons. Just like it’s been for centuries. Although, we have to understand this is the first or second group of children actually being trained to be stupid by their so-called parent[s] and society in general.

    5-Young people today are intelligent, kind and caring. I am acquainted with a large circle of young people going off to prestigious universities in the next two weeks. They were involved with many activities and charities as high school students. Their parents, through the years, taught them to apply themselves in positive ways . I for one salute the young people of today. I do this from a personal vantage point. Many teens and young people have surrounded me in recent years.

    I’m proud of our young people. I just returned from a shopping center. An older gentleman was getting out of a car with his walker. Two young people approached him and offered their assistance.

    #s 6&7 – We’re not talking about whether or not these young people are nice. This conversation started about the fact that many/most of our young people display behavior that closely resembles dull-wittedness (such as the stupid bike riding – all lucid adults understand this by now of course).

    #8-Not just nice and kind,but smart. Guess you overlooked that part of the messages. I’ve witnessed adults who ride bikes irresponsibly.

    Most young people are smart and capable. Not just nice, although they are that,too. I kept a careful watch if high school graduation postings. The number of students who went on to higher learning is remarkable. they bright, practical, and ambitious in their pursuit of successful, fulfilling lives. The future of our country is in good hands . They are hard-working with great values. Not just nice. You missed the point entirely, #8. You give no facts to back up your claims; just blanket, baseless criticisms.

    #10 – “They are hard working” – Exactly, but the reason they work so hard is because no one ever took/takes the time to show them “””HOW””” to work. Therefore, everything they put their hand to is a mess.
    That is why so many of them appear to be dull witted (I understand that they have normal intelligence for the most part). There’s more to life than being book smart.

    11-Young people certainly know how to work. Apparently you are speaking of physical labor. Of course they do physical work along with high academic standards. Young folks that I know wash cars, work on cars, dig ditches, help with mason and carpentry work,cook, sew.,clean houses, have after-school jobs and learn how to manage money earned. Young people are not dull. My many nieces and nephews can converse on many topics, and are up on the latest news. They form opinions that are well-founded based on knowledge they gleaned through their school studies and reading the newspapers. One of my nephews helped to build a relative’s house. Never dull. Always hard-working and interesting.

    #15 – Sir, I know there are young people who aren’t dull witted. But for the most part, dull witted is a good term to describe them. It is interesting that people can’t think in general terms and quickly point out a few exceptions like you just did. But generally speaking, our young people aren’t doing well, physically, mentally, or emotionally.

    #13 – Oh yeah – I take except to “smelly.” We’re not smelly for the most part, although I do admit there are a minority of old people who do smell, just like I understand their are some young people who aren’t dull witted, just most of them.

    #16-What recent interactions have you had with young people to back up your claims? Please Offer some examples without naming names. I interact regularly with older teens and young adults ( in groups) and disagree with your claims.

    #18 – Sir/Madam,What makes you think I have to explain myself to you?
    But I will say this, my experience allows me to just look at a young guy and I have a fair idea of him. There are non-verbal means of communication that young men show only visible to the trained eye which I have from working alongside of men for over fifty years and in a supervisory position and I’m very sure you do not. That Sir/Madam is the big difference between you and me. By the time you ever gain any experience in this like myself, I’ll be pushing them up for many years.

    #18 what’s wrong with you? How dare you question the scary psychic abilities of Dilberger the Magnificent? He can look in to the eyes of any child and see their future. He can merely hear the voice of a teenager and know what horrors that lay ahead for the wayward soul. He’s also great at making balloon animals.
    How can he do such things you ask? Ha! You fool! He has spent his adult life working…in a job…where there are other people…that also work there in that job…so he’s really good at, you know, seeing people. Never mind how he does it! he just does.
    BTW, he’s available for birthday parties, baby showers, and bah mitzvahs.

    #20-Perfectly stated! His thinking is so skewed it’s unbelievable. Never in a lifetime would anyone else think as he does, or agree with him . But I have to say he stands by his incomprehensible convictions: All young people are dull, schools stink, boys should be climbing trees and throwing rocks instead of being inside a classroom. Unbelievable!

    How about Mr. D’s comments about the Board of Education? These people volunteer hours of their lives for the benefits of educating the children of Belmar. Most are professional people and/or college graduates. These folks don’t get paid for their services to the community. He calls them names and berates them. These are good people working on behalf of the students. I understand at one time he would attend board meetings, stand on a chair and yell about his distorted view of education.

    Stop it you two. I You don’t understand the gift. It’s an amazing ability. Imagine being able to just look at a child and know, without a doubt, what the future holds for the young squirt. You all have the new manner of thinking clouding your silly minds and fooling you into believing in things like free will and kindness. Ha! I laugh at you.
    Now if you’ll excuse me, I see a group of young people volunteering at a community hospital. I just know they’re up to no good.
