OTHER IDEAS ON HOW YOU CAN BRAINWASH YOURSELF IN A VERY HEALTHY WAY THROUGH THE PASSWORDS YOU CHOOSE FOR YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS ACCOUNTS



(1) TRY CREATING A PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF THAT REFERS TO A FAVORITE COUNTRY OF YOURS.

IF YOU HAVE FELT A DEEP FONDNESS FOR SWEDEN EVER SINCE YOUR EARLY CHILDHOOD, FOR INSTANCE, YOU COULD CREATE AND USE THE PASSWORD 'SWEDEN17'.


(2) TRY PICKING A PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF THAT REFERS TO A FAVORITE HOBBY OF YOURS. FOR INSTANCE, IF YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYED STUDYING THE ANCIENT GREEK RELIGION OF ATHENIANS DURING YOUR YOUTH, YOU COULD CREATE AND USE THE PASSWORD 'GREEKRELIGION17".

(3) TRY PICKING A PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF THAT CALLS TO MIND A FAVORITE CITY OF YOURS THAT YOU HAVE NEVER VISITED, BUT WOULD LOVE TO VISIT FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER AT THE EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY.

IF STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, FITS THAT DESCRIPTION, YOU COULD CREATE AND USE THE ONLINE PASSWORD 'STOCKHOLM17'.

(4) TRY PICKING A PASSWORD THAT REFERS TO A FAVORITE HEALTHY SPORT OF YOURS. FOR INSTANCE, IF YOU LOVE THE LIFELONG SPORT OF TENNIS, YOU COULD CREATE AND USE THE PASSWORD 'TENNISLOVER17'. IF YOU LOVE TO ROLLER-SKATE, YOU COULD CREATE THE PASSWORD 'SKATERMANIAC17'.

(5) TRY PICKING A PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF THAT REFERS TO A FAVORITE BEVERAGE OF YOURS. IF YOU HAVE ENJOYED JASMINE GREEN TEA OR JASMINE BLACK TEA EVER SINCE YOUR CHILDHOOD, CONSIDER CREATING THE ONLINE PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF OF 'JASMINETEA17'.

(6) TRY CREATING A NEW PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF THAT REFERS TO A LEADING GOAL OF YOURS. IF YOU ARE STRIVING TO HELP DEVELOP A NEW RELIGION, FOR INSTANCE, YOU MIGHT WANT TO TRY USING A NEW PASSWORD SUCH AS 'NEWRELIGION17'.


(6) TRY CHOOSING A NEW PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF THAT REFERS TO A LEADING CAREER AMBITION OF YOURS. IF YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO BECOME A NEWSPAPER COLUMNIST, TRY CREATING AN ONLINE PASSWORD FOR YOURSELF OF 'COLUMNIST2017'.

(7) TRY CHOOSING A FAVORITE FRAGRANCE OF YOURS FOR A PASSWORD. IF THE SCENT OF A FULL GROVE OF ORANGE TREES IN BLOOM IS A FAVORITE SCENT OF YOURS, YOU COULD CREATE THE PASSWORD FOR YOURELF OF 'ORANGESCENTLOVER17".


A PROGRESSIVE PROHIBITIONIST RELIGION IDEA: IN YOUR VARIOUS PASSWORDS, STRIVE TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN CONSTRUCTIVE, APPRECIATIVE TERMS; AND THEREBY BRAINWASH YOURSELF IN A MANNER THAT IS, IN FACT, HEALTHY FOR YOU AS A HUMAN BEING



My one-member (myself, only) and non-Christian Progressive Prohibitionist Religion maintains that it makes good sense for individuals in modern society to use adjectives and nouns that describe themselves in appreciative terms when those persons create their password for access to various online sites they register with.

AMONG THE POSSIBILITIES FOR FLATTERING PASSWORDS (IF APPLICABLE) THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO USE  IN YOUR OWN LIFE:

--HONEST17 (the 17 referring to the present, the year 2017, which helps to keep the individual focused on addressing challenges and pursuing goals applicable to the present and future)

--NICEGUY2018 (the 2018 referring to that individual's striving to develop honorable long-term as well as short-term goals for himself)

---LAWNORDER21 (the 21 refers to this individual being focused on the 21st Century, and the "LAWNORDER" being a reminder that the individual strongly supports law and order through his own life and lifestyle).


--FRIENDLY1975 (the 1975 could refer to the year when you graduated from high school, high school graduation being a milestone in the lives of millions of Americans each year, and a milestone that is never forgotten.)

--SMILE1957 (the 1957 could refer to the individual's birthdate, and the "smile" could refer to his being noted for his frequent smiles that he generously offers to others).

In a world in which slander and libel and verbal harassment and epithet-hurling are all too frequent, why not take advantage of this golden opportunity when you create your own online passwords to promote yourself in terms that are salutary and beneficial to you?

After all, you may be using that particular password on hundreds or thousands of total occasions over a multi-year period.

It makes good sense to express some very healthy self-love through that password, a self-love that promotes a sense of dignity and composure and civility and honor, and a sense of beauty and fineness, in yourself at all times.

EAVESDROPPER'S HAVEN IN MANHATTAN: IMAGINARY CONVERSATIONS OF NEW YORKERS IN 2017

"It's odd that the Times does not have any cartoonists, the way The New Yorker does. With Donald Trump as our new president, there's a greater need than ever for an an oped-page cartoonist at the Times who presents the full ridiculousness of Donald every week."

"If you ever see President Trump wearing a purple shirt at a press conference, that tells you immediately that he's mounted the throne as self-appointed royalty in the White House. Purple is a royal color, and Trump wearing purple means he expects everyone to address him as 'Your Majesty'. Or maybe he'll want us to address him as 'King Donald', and he'll be talking suddenly about his quote end-quote 'divine right' to serve as President for as long as he wishes."

"Trump is so pathetic that he reminds me of a city guy trying to pass for a cowboy on a mechanical bull inside a nightclub. He'll be very, very lucky if he can continue his mechanical bull ride attempt in the White House for 1,460 consecutive days. He's definitely not a cowboy, and he's much more likely to be thrown off his mechanical bull a matter of a hours after he mounts it."

"When Trump gets kicked out of the Presidency, which should have already happened, I'll need to know the name of the guy who replaces Trump. It's something like Pence, or Penitent, and I say that because I'm Catholic and the word 'Penitent' is always on my mind; but I don't believe it's either of those two. Maybe if I google the terms 'vice president' and '2017', I'll actually memorize that heir-apparent's name before he replaces Donald in the Presidency. This is how you prove you're a savvy insider: when you're prepared to say 'President Pence' all of a sudden, or whatever his name is."

"I finally figured out who bought out the company I work for. The new boss hosted a dinner party last week for my coworkers and me, and all he gave me to eat the food with was a pair of chopsticks. I immediately knew it was a hostile takeover by a Japanese corporate giant."

"This is the first city I ever lived in where I actually feel guilty if my apartment unit takes up more than 500 square feet. In the back of my mind I'm hearing all the other New Yorkers shouting at me, 'So why did you rob us of space we needed for our own apartment unit?'"


"I finally figured out how to overcome my problem of always getting behind in my reading. I will start by reading the last five pages of each book I want to read. This gives me the confidence that I made it all the way to the final words of the last chapter. I generally don't have time for the 10 chapters before that final chapter, but at least I know what it is like to have reached the summit of that mountain I attempted to climb through that book. And the view from up there, at the peak of that mountain, is a great feeling of conquest in the wilderness."


"About the only ancestry you won't find here in New York is Albanian. The Albanians tend to stay where they are in eastern Europe, and everyone in New York is grateful for that."

"So if your company was eaten up in a hostile take-over bid, why do you feel a need to smile inside your workplace? Wouldn't it be more appropriate to glare back at your new boss? Or are you worried that you might be subjected to a hostile 'you're fired' 
pink slip message from your new boss, if you glare back at him?"

"I'm not looking forward to all the stories I'll be hearing about which restaurants of Manhattan are Trump's favorites. I think I'll stay away from those restaurants, to avoid any situation in which President Trump might ever expect me to shake hands with him."

"My friend Sally has calculated that she earns 1-millionth the income that Donald Trump apparently earns each year through his business career. To me, it's a bit masochistic of Sally to dwell on that point. It's not like she's one millionth the person that Donald Trump is. If she ran for President, I would definitely vote for Sally before I'd vote for Trump. To me, Sally deserves millions of votes, millions of hugs from her admirers, let's put it that way."

ADDITIONAL HUMOR MATERIAL THAT STAND-UP COMEDIANS SUCH AS JERRY SEINFELD CAN USE WHEN THEY REFER TO DONALD TRUMP AS OUR NATION'S NEW CHIEF OF STATE

---Everyone is wondering what the theme will be for the very first White House Conference our new president, Mr. Trump, will be sponsoring. That one is easy. It will be called the 'White House Conference on How to Reverse the Aging Process', since Donald reportedly likes being the reigning czar for our entire country so much that he plans to make a bid for re-election at age 74.


---Rumor has it that President Trump plans to draw from his own wealth in order to make the White House 15 floors in height. It seems he wants to rename the place as Trump Towers D.C.

---Many people have asked me to describe the religion of our new head of state, Donald Trump. I have done some research on that subject and I've got the answer for you. He's Eastern-Unorthodox. In fact, he's so unorthodox that he's declared himself the head of that religion in order to immediately re-define what is moral and virtuous conduct whenever he gets accused of violating the law or being unethical in the White House.

---Everyone is asking how our new President, Donald Trump, is going to prove to the entire world that he isn't turning the U.S. into a satellite state of Russia. My guess is that he will get on his White House hotline with the Kremlin and ask for advice from his friend Vladmir on a public-policy action that Donald could take that might give the impression to Western countries that Donald is NOT a puppet with Vladimir Putin as his puppeteer. Then when Putin offers advice on that subject, Donald will announce in a specially televised speech the action he plans to take to publicly demonstrate that America has NOT turned into a satellite state of Russia. And that televised speech will be greeted with laughter throughout the entire Kremlin so heavy that that entire building in Moscow is rocking with gleeful and triumphant delight.

---Many people are not aware that Donald Trump plans to open up a Trump Resort in Georgia. I'm talking about the Russian Georgia, not the one found in the U.S. He will do that through one of his relatives, to avoid any perceived conflict of interest for our new head of state as he attempts to prove that he is not a puppet of Vladimir Putin.

---Isn't it special to have a new U.S. President who always reminds you of a culinary dish that can be found in eastern Europe. I'm referring, of course, to Hungarian Goulash. Everything in his Administration is a Hodge Podge of billionaire-sourced ingredients that each sparkle like diamonds and remind you of Zsa Zsa Gabor in the midst of one of her dozens of divorces.

---Everyone is dreading the day when it turns out that Donald Trump has so many relatives in Eastern Europe that one of them will prove to be a gypsy who insists on paying an official visit to President Trump. When that gypsy relative walks out of the White House after being an invited overnight guest, it's likely that the total financial value of the valuables stolen from the White House during the nighttime, valuables that will be hidden in that gypsy's underwear, will total $100 million. That is nothing to Donald, though, since he's a billionaire and he will make every effort to avoid embarrasing his gypsy relative from Eastern Europe.

---I think everyone is eager to find out what President Trump will offer as a present to his friend Vladimir when Putin visits the White House during the first week of Donald's presidency. Since Donald is a billionaire, my guess is that he will draw from his own personal wealth to give Vladimir Putin a gold key to the White House that the Russian leader can use whenever he wants to be in bed with Donald. That happens to be every day of the year, as it turns out, since Donald can be very hospitable. In fact, I don't know of any previous U.S. President who has ever been MORE in bed with a top Russian leader than Donald Trump clearly is.

---For all the talk about who Donald Trump plans to appoint for cabinet secretaries and Supreme Court Justice, the biggest question, to me, is who will he pick for his official White House Chef?

Many of us are worried that Donald Trump's close friend in Moscow, Vladimir Putin, will insist on sending a Russian chef based in the Kremlin's kitchen to serve as Donald's official White House Chef.

The disadvantage with that is that the minute the U.S. has a conflict with the Russian Government, that chef whom Mr. Putin offers to Mr. Trump at a reduced-rubles rate may put poison in President Trump's food or beverages before serving them to our American chief of state.

Just imagine the possibilities for mega-disaster. 


A poisoned Russian Cabbage soup could mean Assassination by Ingestion. And the resulting atomic war between the United States and Russia would get called the "Great Atomic Russian Cabbage Soup War".

That war, incidentally, will most certainly end all of human civilization except in Australia, where promoters of the annual Australian Open professional tennis tournament will be relieved to learn that they are guaranteed of an Australian-born men's and ladies' champion for the first time in decades.

Good morning,

This email is in response to your public information request (PIR 31177). You requested:

“This is a Texas Open Records request in which I seek to obtain from the City Government of Austin a copy of any and all records currently on file with any and all applicable departments or offices of the City of Austin----with those departments or offices possibly including the City of Austin Law Department; the City Manager's Office; the Office of Assistant Manager Rey Arellano; the Office of the Mayor; and the City Hall Offices of Austin City Council Member Ellen Troxclair and Delia Garza, respectively---that, in each such case, cite either or both of the following:

---the exact day and month and year and time, if cited, when the forensic DNA-swabs rape-evidence kit for APD Sex Crimes Case 11-3550615, with myself the complainant and cited rape victim in that case, was sent or submitted by the Austin Police Department for DNA lab testing;

or

---the full official name and mailing address and telephone number of the DNA lab anywhere in the world where that particular rape-evidence kit is reportedly currently being stored or is currently being processed, along with the full legal name of the cited liaison to or contact person for the Austin Police Department's Sex Crimes Unit who is employed at the cited DNA lab.

To assist you in your search, please find, below, a corrected version (one total cited date below was changed by me to "June 2, 2016", a correction I then promptly shared with the cited APD official) of the full text of the August 15, 2016, follow-up e-mail letter I wrote and sent to Mrs. Susan Carrizales of the APD Sex Crimes Unit, which refers to her very helpful disclosure to me on the telephone earlier that day that the cited rape-evidence kit has been submitted by APD for testing at a DNA lab, she stated.

Mrs. Carrizales also stated to me in that same 2016 telephone conversation I had with her that the Sex Crimes Unit has not yet received any DNA-trace results from lab processing of the cited doctor-ordered and Austin City Manager Marc Ott-approved and APD-approved and Attorney General of Texas-approved rape-evidence kit that was obtained from my own body at my request inside the emergency room of St. David's Medical Center near UT-Austin's Law School campus on Dec. 22, 2011.

Please let me know if the total processing fee you plan to charge me for providing me with the cited documents might exceed $20. That information from you will then enable me to revise this request in order to hold the total financial expenses to myself on this to $20 or less.”

SHOULD THERE BE ;AN 'AMERICAN MASS-MURDER DETERRENCE RESEARCH CENTER' IN THE USA?



One of the public-policy questions that I hope the next U.S. President and current U.S. Congress will address sometime this month is simply this:

SHOULD THE U.S. GOVERNMENT FUND OR HELP FUND OR OFFICIALLY SPONSOR ESTABLISHMENT OF AN 'AMERICAN MASS-MURDER DETERRENCE RESEARCH CENTER'?


IF SO, WHERE SHOULD THAT RESEARCH CENTER BE SITUATED?






Monday, January 9, 2017

QUESTIONS THAT SHOULD BE POSED TO THE INCOMING U.S. PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP REPORTEDLY BEING THAT INDIVIDUAL, AT THAT NEW HEAD OF STATE'S VERY FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE:



(1) Which steps are you taking to help the United States and American society convert to the metric system as our official system of measurements as quickly as possible?

(2) You have stated that you will not accept the salary payment to you that a modern U.S. President would normally receive. Did it ever occur to you that the next time a rich person gets elected to the Presidency, you have set a precedent that might pressure him or her into declining to accept a regular Presidential paycheck from the federal government, meaning that his or her job will be re-defined as "charity work", so to speak? Also, are you yourself planning to deduct from your personal income taxes the total time and effort you spend in the White House, since you yourself may now be claiming it as "charity work" you are doing for the sake of philanthropy?

(3) Are you completely sure, Mr. President, that your designation of your new job as "charity work" won't undermine your ability to devote 100 percent effort at all times toward this very serious new role you have, a role that affects the personal safety and quality of life of billions of people all over the world?


 And if you end up resenting the federal government for paying you the $1 or zero dollars per year, I believe you have stated as your so-called "income" in the White House, even though it was the level of compensation you yourself asked for, might this also undermine your ability to devote 100 percent effort at all times toward your new job as President?

(4) Are you a scholar of the American presidency, and if not, do you plan to enroll in a crash course on the history of the U.S. Presidency in order to draw upon strategies you like that previous Presidents have wisely pursued? Also, who will be your crash-course instructor on the history of the Presidency, if you do choose to learn more about the history of the Presidency ASAP?

(5) Is it perfectly clear to you at this time that your Presidency will be limited to no more than four years? Or are you entertaining the possibility that you might actually run for re-election in 2020?


(6) In view of the distinct likelihood that yours will be a Presidency of four years, at most, and many members of Congress of course also believe this is the case, do you agree that this makes it all the more imperative that you consistently show full respect toward any and all members of Congress from either major political party throughout your undeniably brief tenure in the White House, with yourself having an obvious need to exhibit a bipartisan statesmanship at all times in view of your time limitations?

(7) Historians of the Presidency might point out that you are the oldest person ever to assume office as U.S. President. Will this legal and medical fact about yourself have any bearing on how you conduct yourself? Will you take frequent naps in the White House, as President Reagan, a previous President you admire quite a bit, habitually did during his meetings with Cabinet secretaries in which he reportedly dozed off in the middle of discussions?

(8) When your Presidency finally comes to an end, regardless of whether that occurs four years from now or before then should you ever decide to resign in disgust or in disgrace, how do you want to be remembered in the history books of this country? For instance, do you want Presidential historians to sum up your Presidency as one in which you brought the United States closer to Russia, as perhaps your leading accomplishment? If so, which new treaty between the United States and Russia, a treaty that your friend Vladimir Putin might also like, do you plan to seek on behalf of your "Alliance with Russia Project", as you might yourself refer to it?

(8a) If a nuclear war ever breaks out during your Administration, and let us all hope that it won't, do you ever imagine a scenario in which a military alliance you possibly hope to forge between the United States and Russia would then jointly defeat mainland China? In that scenario you possibly have in the back of your mind as our new head of state, do you imagine yourself after a peace treaty is signed with the vanquished Chinese Government, then personally proposing a non-alcoholic toast of some type, since you reportedly are teetotaler, to your friend Mr. Putin inside the Kremlin after the two of you in that scenario somehow succeed at jointly defeating the Chinese? And in that scenario, which country, the U.S. or Russia, would then send in troops to occupy the vanquished nation of China, as you see it?

(9) Do you believe it to be anti-American, and possibly a form of treason against the United States Government, if an American citizen ever publicly criticizes Vladimir Putin or the Russian Government in a manner that you regard as being excessive or impolite or disrespectful?

(10) How much progress do you expect to achieve on behalf of eliminating the budgetary deficit that the federal government of the United States currently has? Are you planning to ask your friend Mr. Putin to help you come up with ideas on how to reduce our own nation's budgetary deficit?

(11) Do you believe that the President of the United States should spend more time than President Obama did in holding one-to-one Presidential meetings in the Oval Office with chief executive officers of for-profit corporations that are headquartered either in the United States or in a favorite foreign country of yours, such as Russia? 

(12) Do you agree with then-Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, who famously observed during the Administration of President Eisenhower in the 1950s that "What's good for General Motors, is good for this country", or words to that effect?

(13) Do you agree with those who say that offering as many forms of energy-efficient mass-transportation  services as possible throughout this entire nation will help to protect the national security of American society for two major reasons---first, by conserving fossil fuels, and second, by providing back-up transportation systems in the event of natural-disaster-related or terrorism-related destruction to any particular roadway or other transportation system in this nation?
