    Does anyone know where and when residents can purchase seasonal beach badges. Are they being limited? Apparently surrounding towns will be limiting the amount of seasonal badges being sold. Asbury park is sold out?? Bradley will sell up till 5/15/20. Two hour lines in Avon. Here we go, some plan huh.

    So the dead bodies fished out of the ocean or lying on the beach can be identified by the badges attached to the swimsuits. No fake names or addresses on the applications if you want your loved ones to know of your demise. I ain’t goin’ in no stinkin’ ocean.

    If today was any indication of what our summer will be like in Belmar we all better not leave our houses.
    Crowds everywhere, no parking by 1pm and most were not wearing a mask.
    The rules are already not being enforced. It’s going to be a long summer here Belmar. And just think about all of the summer rentals packed with kids and no bars for them to go to.
    Belmar will be house party central!

    Today, a bright and sunny, warm day, I saw several people walking back from the beach without masks and small groups of young people walking close to each other or riding bicycles in clusters without masks. Sorry, I fear that the grim reaper many have his season. I just do not trust many people. Some good folk have been practicing social distancing in town, god bless them, but overall I have a hard time being optimistic and my inherent cynicism leads me to focus on the selfishness and self-centeredism of many. Bodies washing up on the beach was an exaggeration, but was an image in my head. Hyperbole speaks at times.

    From what I saw yesterday as I walked with my sandwich signs in opposition to the lockdown (the vast majority of people are very much in favor of what I’m doing)is the authorities better open up very soon. Their window of opportunity is shutting. Ocean Ave was really packed with very many cars (about 3:30PM) yesterday. There could be a riot[s] if they don’t act soon. Our leadership at all levels in this state is very inexperienced.

    12-People are dying, Mr. Dilberger, and not just older folks or those who have compromised health. Recently the obituaries in the App have cited and mentioned young people who have died of the virus…in their 40’s. This is not a fantasy Many people are still dying of the virus. The lockdowns and distancing rules along with the masks are for our own protection. Now we have
    learned that children are at risk due to a related illness. What is it about the dangers of Covid-19 that you don’t understand? Medical professionals are putting their own lives at risk to save the lives of people with the virus. Let’s show some respect and appreciation for them by acknowledging what they’re doing. How many people agreed with you on your sandwich board walk? Just curious.

To go around with a sign to discourage the lockdown ( when it’s been set up to protect us) hurts everyone, with the reality of what’s going on in the world.

    #16 – “People are dying”
    Yep, everyday and after the “all clear” sounds, they’ll still die. As for how many people agreed with my signs, that would be the vast majority. Once every so often a person quietly disagree, but that person was in the vast minority.
    #17 – you think these dimwits are “doing everything in their power to keep us safe?”
    “why and how are they inexperienced?”
    They are people of the written and spoken word, not people who put their hands on work – Very feminized
    “expert – experts know what to say to keep their soft, cushy expert job. “medical profession” – It’s also known as the
    “practice of medicine” (they’re practicing)
    #18 – “Why are you suggesting a riot?”
    I’m not suggesting a riot. Just pointing out there might very well be a riot if these draconian measures aren’t lifted soon.
    #19 – “To promote it as a hoax ”
    It isn’t me who promoted the hoax. It is gang of liars in within our government and their media allies who promoted and started the hoax in the first place.
    “been set up to protect us”
    Don’t look to the government for protection. The founding fathers knew it would be the government which would always pose the biggest danger to our liberties.

    Now 20 is disparaging the medical profession. Another group added to his list of those he dislikes. He still can’t admit that the covid 19 virus is real and people are dying from it. Today’s APP listed two brothers in their 50’s who passed from the virus. Me. Dilberger has claimed that only the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems suffer from tithe Coronavirus. According to the APP article referenced, both these men were of normal health. It’s a worldwide concern, but Mr. D. Thinks it’s a hoax. Go figure.

I’ve learned from this blog he is by far a terrible human, doesn’t stop or apologize, and has no respect for anyone. He was probably out there with his board only listening to himself that’s why he thinks the majority agrees with him. He talks terrible about children women and a long list so I don’t even feel bad saying who he really is.

    We could’ve done without quite a few of them.

    We held the monthly meeting of the He Man Woman Haters Club of America (HMWHCA), Monmouth Cty. chapter last night. We had a good turnout (unfortunately the Sgt. at Arms had to eject three members for drunkenness – there’s a $5 fine for being ejected). The meeting opened promptly at 8PM and the first order of business was to mention brother (Past President) Charlie Bratton died – the membership was duly saddened. Then it was moved by Joe Goofinoff we reopen the poll to reassess women’s right to vote. The motion was seconded by Norman McGillicutty and passed by a vote of 37-0-1 abstention (we’re starting to wonder about that guy who abstained). Anyway the poll goes like this
    1 – Should women be allowed to vote?
    2 – Should they be allowed to vote if they have a male sponsor?
    3 – Should said sponsor have to post a surety bond of $2,500?
    4 – If women are allowed to vote should the age be set 50 yrs. old they’re allowed?
    Anyone on this blog can cast a vote if he’d like. Of course he must be 18+ years of age (only men can vote).

    Another thing about this Covid-19 hoax. The people should be told that one of the three known groups at risk are the obese/fat people. For years, the medical industry has misdiagnosed in this area. Obesity is an illness just like cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc. Of course, the disease of obesity has a mental element to it as well, I guess depression. Obviously, very fat people are susceptible to coronavirus because of their already ravaged immune system. Clearly, the government and media are colluding to hide this fact from the population at large.

There are no limitations to those who might contract the disease. Look at the vast numbers of people diagnosed or who have died from the disease . Also, I didn’t know that you have a medical background in psychology. Have you seen/ know obese people who have the virus? Your guesswork is laughable. Truth is ANYONE can contract the virus. Why are you calling it a hoax? Why are you claiming to have inside knowledge? More generalizing on your part, Mr. Dilberger.
