The Anti Common Sense Blog

A new blog about Belmar just began publishing.  It doesn’t seem like it would be much fun to read, but anyway it’s there so I thought I would let you know about it.

It is run by an anonymous administrator and doesn’t appear to allow comments.

Its first post brags that Doherty got more votes for mayor than any mayoral candidate in Belmar ever received.  Of course no other mayoral candidate ever engaged in the kind of vote-by-mail abuse we saw this year and that the State Assembly might move to outlaw.  I strongly believe it changed the outcome of the council race this year.

The post also repeats the dishonest practice of attributing remarks sent by commenters to me.  Of course the folks who read this blog know what was written by me and what was sent by commenters.

I don’t know if I’m going to bother engaging with them (him? her?), especially since it doesn’t allow comments.  I’m sure it will be the same kind of blind adoration of our leader we’ve all gotten used to here in Belmar.  I don’t care about it anymore and really don’t want the distraction.

For as long as I continue my work, my purpose here will be to continue to bring information and perspective to my readers that is not available anywhere else.

    It says its purpose is to promote the positive things happening in Belmar, yet the first entry is about the election saying “dems win, republicans devisive.”

    Common Sense For Belmar is to Belmar View, as truthful news is to propaganda.

    Well Dave:
    Seems that your very successful blog has spawned “competition”. That is the great thing about capitalism. We now like MSNBC have an alternative source that we can view in the same percentage of viewership as MSNBC.

    It looks about as credible as the North Korea news agency. They may as well refer to Doherty as “our dear leader”.
