“Trans” is Not a Gender, It’s a Mental Illness.

June has become known as (Gay) Pride Month.  Let your freak flag fly!

But let’s get one thing straight (pun intended): Trans is not a gender, it is a mental illness.

It may be the only mental illness in which the treatment is to convince the patients that their delusions are true and that their physical and biological realities are false.

Recently, there has even been a push to pass legislation to force the sane people of this country to acknowledge the warped reality of the trans- mentally ill.  Such madness must stop.

An overwhelming majority of humans (ignoring rare defects) are born either male or female.  This is a biological fact established at the cellular level in one’s chromosomes.  This fact can never change, no matter how mentally ill one is.

Beyond the cellular level, more overt indicators of human gender exist, the genitalia being most significant.  Mutilating one’s genitalia will never convert one to a new gender, no matter how mentally ill one is.

A trans-woman will never mother a child as a woman can, and a trans-man will never father a child as a man can.  The misuse of science and technology to create these trans-creatures is just offensive science fiction.

While these trans-people may very well be gay, the “T” in LGBT needs its own separate honorary month: a mental illness month.  Get these people the help that they need, but don’t lump them in with perfectly sane gay folks and don’t try to change the sane world around the trans- to reinforce their delusions.

Bergen Brookside Flatbed Wrecker Unsafe Driver Runs a Stop Sign and Almost Takes Out a Car.

On 5/31/2017 at about 4:25 pm on Fourth Ave. headed northeast @ the intersection with Ackerman Ave. in Westwood/Emerson, NJ, a Bergen Brookside flatbed wrecker (plate no. XDZ A80) runs a stop sign and almost takes out a car. If you need a tow truck/wrecker in the Pascack Valley, PLEASE DO NOT CALL Bergen Brookside. We don’t need their dangerous drivers in our community.

Notice that in attempting to run the stop sign, the unsafe driver was also cutting off two cars coming in the opposite direction.

Pascack Valley Thunder and Lightning Storm.

Pretty crazy thunder and lightning storm moved through the Pascack Valley overnight Saturday just after midnight.  Never saw so much horizontal lightning!  Here’s a couple of photos of the action.

BEWARE of PSE&G Telephone Scammers.

There are reports this week of Pascack Valley residents receiving telephone calls from individuals purporting to offer PSE&G customers a reduced rate on energy costs through PSE&G.

The scammers ask you to get a copy of your bill and a pen and paper so that the scammer can verify your account information.

The scammers are likely using a device to hide their true phone number/location from caller ID.  One scammer phone number is reportedly “201-351-7851” out of “Hackensack, NJ.”  However, this number, when called, results in immediate disconnection.  The calls may originate out of Union City, NJ, or some other location.  Note: a reverse lookup on whitepages.com indicates  that this number is a Peerless Network landline from Boundbrook, NJ with a spam score of 4 out of 10.  Others across the internet are reporting this number as spam.

Reports indicate that all scammer telephone agents speak with a heavy (Asian) Indian accent.

It is unlikely that Pascack Valley residents/PSE&G customers will benefit from giving any account information to these scammers.  Proceed at your own risk.

Update 8/8/13: to avoid these calls, you may want to add the following numbers to your blocked callers list:

  • 201-351-7851
  • 862-307-7217 (a Newark, NJ #) 
  • 973-841-4145 (update 8/22/13)
  • 856-396-9202 from “Intelligent Energy” (update 8/23/13)

Hurricane Sandy Aftermath in Westwood, NJ.

A year after our last hurricane, Sandy beat us up, ruined our Halloween, knocked out power, and caused gasoline rationing.

Of course PSE&G implemented nothing of any consequence after last year’s storm, and so power went out almost immediately for hundreds of thousands of those in NJ.

The storm was almost a week ago, and things are not even close to normal.

We were all there, but here are a few pictures of the aftermath around Westwood.

 

Road Rage Leads to Alleged Assault and Harassment in Westwood.

The man pictured here is alleged to have assaulted and harassed a motorist at the K-Mart Shopping Center on Broadway in Westwood late this morning. 

The victim alleges that the man was operating a Pensky rental truck in an unsafe manner in the K-Mart parking lot, and almost caused an accident with the victim’s car. 

The victim further alleges that the man exited the truck, approached his vehicle making threats, and ultimately slapped the victim in the face through the driver’s side window. 

The man then jumped into the Penske truck and fled the scene.  The victim followed the truck and alerted the police via cell phone.  The man led police

 on a chase south on Broadway, through the center of Westwood, and ultimately appeared to get lost after turning off of 1st Avenue onto Prospect.  The chase ended on Godwin Terrace in Westwood.

No fewer than four police vehicles arrived on the scene.  However, the victim states that the local police didn’t appear to do anything except speak to the alleged assailant for a moment or so.

The victim feels that the local police should have done more.  “Clearly the truck has an obstructed license plate, which is easily cause for a violation.  But the police did nothing to this man who fled the scene.”   

On information and belief, another truck, pictured here, and unknown person(s) ran interference to prevent the victim from following the alleged assailant.  The license plate is Florida AZC-T05.

A call to Pensky confirmed that the alleged assailant’s truck was rented in the North Bergen area.  The license plate is New Jersey XN-183T.

The victim states that he may pursue criminal charges against the man driving the Pensky truck, but concedes that the criminal justice system is flawed.  “The kind of people you meet in the New Jersey courts–especially the judges and prosecutors–they are all corrupt.”
