The Murphy family dined out again in Monmouth County on Wednesday night with a meal at The Butcher’s Block in Long Branch.
There’s no hypocrisy involved in wearing “STAY THE FUCK HOME” hats while dining at The Butcher’s Block.
“Might not agree on everything; but we do agree on one thing…. Stay The Fuck Home!!! ” was the caption @theblocknj posted on Instagram for the photo of the Governor, First Lady, their son and owner Tom D’Ambrisi. The younger Murphy and D’Ambrisi are wearing red hats with the slogan “STAY THE FUCK HOME.”
Senator Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso (both R-Monmouth) emphasized their previous call for an immediate increase for indoor dining capacity to 66 percent following yet another desperate message from a prominent restaurant owner who indicated they might close very soon without a substantial indoor dining increase.
Senator Dubs Murphy’s 25% standard as a “Timidity Tax”
Senator Declan O’Scanlon today called upon Governor Phil Murphy to raise the limit at which New Jersey restaurants can operate indoors from 25% of their capacity to 66%.
The Monmouth County Republican noted that we’re approaching the first colder weather weekend of the season and that there has been no spike in COVID-19 cases or Rt since the Governor allowed indoor dining at 25% over the Labor Day weekend.
Senator Declan O’Scanlon today challenged New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to stand on line to register at vehicle at MVC.
Murphy has for weeks been sitting on legislation passed by the Senate and the Assembly that would ease the congestion and the long, unhealthy lines at MVC facilities.
O’Scanlon and his district partner, Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, believe that Murphy would immediately sign the legislation if he appreciated the suffering that he and MVC Commissioner Sue Fulton are putting New Jersey drivers through.
Congressman Frank Pallone is Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. That makes him one of the most powerful Members of Congress.
The Chairmanship would naturally change hands if Republicans take control of the House. But even if Democrats retain the House, Pallone could lose his coveted position of power due to Governor Murphy’s paper ballot election.
Governor Murphy’s election rules have the real potential to make him and New Jersey the laughing stock of the nation and cause constitutional chaos. It is very possible that Jersey ballots will not be tabulated before the Electoral College meets on December 14 or when the President is to be inaugurated on January 20.
House races in districts 2,3,5, 7 and 11 could still be undecided when the House of Representatives is scheduled to be sworn in on January 3.
