Governor ‘Chicken Little’ Murphy is calling us knuckleheads again! Why because in his mind some people are not following his rules.
With only a very short notice our wonderful governor (not!) has decided it would be best to not allow indoor dinning. This is a very big economic blow to the restaurant industry. With only takeout being allowed many establishments can not make ends meet. And they were counting on the indoor dinning traffic from the July 4th holiday.
Here is what the governor had to say, ““We had planned to loosen restrictions this week,” Gov. Phil Murphy said at his Monday coronavirus news conference. “However, after COVID-19 spikes in other states driven by, in part, the return of indoor dining, we have decided to postpone indoor dining indefinitely.”
The pause also applies to indoor banquet halls, Murphy said.
“Unfortunately the national scene compounded by instances of knucklehead behavior here at home are requiring us to hit pause on the restart of indoor dining for the foreseeable future,” he said. Asked about a time frame, the first-term Democrat replied, “I don’t think it’s a matter of days, but a matter of weeks. We have enormous sympathy but the alternative here is worse and unacceptable.”
Eateries were going to be allowed to reopen on Thursday with 25% capacity limits.”
Don’t you just love how this governor calls people knucklehead? What is wrong with you governor?
I just do not understand his waiting till the last minute to tell the restaurant industry they can not have indoor dinning. Do you not understand governor the amount of money that these good people have invested in reopening? I guess not. Just another Murphy decision that continues to destroy the economy of New Jersey.
The people of this state have to wake up and realize that Murphy refuses to disclose his metrics that he is using to determine when and what to reopen. Not even the President of the Senate, Steve Sweeney, knows where the governor’s coronavirus information is coming from. He has asked on numerous occasions and Murphy has refused to divulge this information. Something is very wrong here as keeping this information secret smacks of cover up.
That is my opinion- Jumpin Jersey Mike
