POSSIBLE NEED FOR A 'HOW TO PREVENT UNWANTED PREGNANCIES' RESEARCH INSTITUTE



Since one goal of American society, and this entire planet, should be to achieve zero population growth in a kind and law-abiding manner, it makes good sense for some philanthropist to donate money toward establishment of a "Preventing Unwanted Pregnancies Research Institute" with that very incisive and exclusive focus.

Among my suggestions on how to help promote that specific goal:

---Urge single persons in their romantic-dating practices to automatically exclude consumption of any drinking alcohol at any time during their first 10 romantic dates with the same prospective new boyfriend or prospective new girlfriend.

After 10 consecutive mutual-consent and in-person romantic dates together, if both partners still feel they are very compatible with each other, and if they are both of legal drinking age, they might possibly choose to consume a small amount of alcohol together.

However, they should very carefully avoid reaching the point of actual intoxication, as that could trigger an unwanted pregnancy scenario. Single persons who are drunk are much more likely to impregnate or get impregnated by their mutual-consent dating partner.

--Urge single persons to make a list of the muttered barely-audible criticism or otherwise-verbalized criticism of themselves and the criticism of their dating partner or sex partner that they have either heard or overheard or verbalized.

That list, when reviewed in a sober context, can help to spare a lady from any tendency she might have to spread her legs suggestively on a romantic date, or to otherwise put her at risk of "going all the way" with a male dating partner.


Single women are less likely to agree to get impregnated out of wedlock by a male dating partner if those ladies carefully and diligently review the full list of unflattering traits that were apparently attributed to themselves, for instance, at various times by their male dating partner, with "obnoxious", "too intense", "too serious," "politically Fascist", "too loud,", "an older person", and "wobbly gait", for instance, serving as red-flag warnings to those ladies that they should refrain from "going all the way" with a gentleman (no matter how dazzling and often-heartfelt he may be) who mutters comments of that type within earshot of themselves or directly to themselves.

---Urge single women to seek counseling from an expert on human relationships if they notice a tendency in themselves to "want to get pregnant by him, even if it is out of wedlock, since I secretly would like to get married to him, even though we haven't discussed this yet and I don't claim to know him all that well. I feel confident that if I get pregnant by him out of wedlock, he will say 'yes' to wedding bells in our future. I'm persuading him to say 'yes' to marriage, with help from a bulge in my belly that resulted from my faking forgetfulness about putting the right contraceptive foam on my body before our love-making together."

--Urge single persons to ask themselves, "Are you completely sure that you would make a good parent at this particular point in your life?"

--Urge single persons to review an authoritative fact sheet that cites the average amount of money that a biological parent spends to raise a new child from infancy into adulthood. "Are you completely sure that you will be earning enough of an income through your career to afford to take care of and fully nurture the growth of your biological offspring?", you might ask single persons.

March 13, 2017

Dear City of Austin Public Information Office Open Records Coordinator,

This is a Texas Open Records Act request in which I seek to obtain from the City Government of Austin in Austin, Texas, any and all applicable written or typed documents or computer records or e-mail communications or phone messages generated or written or compiled or sent or received or forwarded at any time since 8 a.m. August 12, 2016, on behalf of or by any attorney or administrator or other staff member employed in or by the City of Austin Law Department or City Attorney's Office here in Austin, and that, in each and every applicable case, referred at least once in any manner to myself, John Kevin McMillan of Austin, Texas.

EXCLUDED FROM THE SCOPE OF THIS PUBLIC-INFORMATION REQUEST ARE ANY AND ALL DOCUMENTS THAT WERE EXCLUSIVELY OR SOLELY WRITTEN BY MYSELF, JOHN KEVIN McMILLAN OF NORTHWEST AUSTIN.

My legal name is John Kevin McMillan. I was born on April 27, 1957, at Lincoln, Nebraska. I have most recently resided in Austin proper on a continuous and uninterrupted basis ever since mid-March 1997.

I am a gainfully employed single adult white male Austin resident of English, Scottish, and German ancestry.

I myself do not have any criminal-conviction record. I lead a permanently alcohol-free, longtime-celibate-by-choice, single-by-choice, lifelong-tobacco-free, permanently marijuana-free and permanently illicit-drug-free, lifelong-tattoo-less, facially-cleanshaven (no beard, no mustache, no goatee, etc.), dependably civil and law-abiding and honest and vigilant and law-enforcement-minded, clean-talking (no profanity by me in my everyday conversations with other persons), lawfully non-Christian and implicitly-deistic (non-atheistic), religiously independent (my one-member and non-proselytizing "Progressive Prohibitionist Religion") lifestyle here in Austin.

I have resided ever since late September 2015 as a rent-paying official tenant or rent-paying approved occupant at Village Oaks Apartments, 10926 Jollyville Road, Building 9, Apt. 902, Austin, Texas, 78759.

Among the insights I hope to glean through this public-information request are:

---What might explain why dozens of City Government of Austin employees or officials in at least seven different departments or offices of the City---including the City's Public Information Office, the Austin Police Department, the Office of the Police Monitor, the Human Resources Department, the City Manager's Office, the City Clerk's Office, and various employees of the City Attorney's Office itself----have each felt a need in the last approximately five-year period to consult an attorney or paralegal in the City Attorney's Office here specifically about myself, John Kevin McMillan of northwest Austin?

---Has the City Attorney's Office here determined that any conduct relating to myself or referring to myself by any City of Austin employee or any City of Austin official, or by anyone else employed by a government-owned institution or agency, might have possibly violated the law in any way?

---Is the City Attorney's Office aware that the Austin Police Department apparently has never on any occasion arrested any suspect and then formally charged that individual with having wronged me (John Kevin McMillan) in violation of the state penal code of Texas?

---Has the City Attorney's Office ever acknowledged in writing at any time that I myself have been and continue to be victimized by alleged continuous personal-injury-crimes and alleged continuous anal-rape-crimes, the latter of which have been allegedly inflicted on me on a daily and year-round and multi-year basis exclusively during periods when I myself am lying alone, unconscious and probably also snoring, on my own bed inside my locked private bedroom of my bolt-locked rental apartment unit in northwest Austin?

--Has the City Attorney of Austin or any other City of Austin official ever mentioned me by name on any occasion in any context at any recent Austin City Council meeting or at any other recent public event?

---Has the City Attorney's Office in Austin ever at any time identified any possible legal-liability issue facing the City Government of Austin that refers to myself or relates to myself in any way?

---Is City Attorney Anne Morgan aware that I myself have experienced frequent and persistent anal soreness, including this Monday, March 13, 2017, throughout the most recent six-year-period, despite my leading a consistently high-fiber diet and despite my pursuing a fair amount of exercise on a daily and year-round basis through my career duties at three different restaurants and through my pursuit of hiking to and from bus stops and to and from stores in northwest Austin?

I hope to hear from you soon in response to this public-information request from myself.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

John Kevin McMillan.

CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE IN DOWNTOWN AUSTIN ON APRIL 24, 2017, RECEIVES WRITTEN COMPLAINT BY ME ABOUT AN ALLEGED PERMANENT BAN REPORTEDLY IMPOSED ON ME BY MY DULY-ELECTED CITY COUNCIL MEMBER FOR MY OWN DISTRICT, THE HARVARD-TRAINED PUBLIC-POLICY EXPERT Dr. ALISON ALTER



On Monday, April 24, 2017 4:11 PM, John McMillan wrote:

To: Assistant City Attorney Jerikay Gayle in the Open Government and Ethics Division of the City of Austin Law Department (City Attorney's Office) at City Hall in downtown Austin, with your office phone number being (512) 974-2268.

April 24, 2017


Dear Assistant City Attorney Gayle,

Thank you for taking the time to talk with me today from your City Attorney's office desk in regard to the reported recent public-policy decision in regard to me by my duly-elected Austin City Council Member for my specific district, Dr. Alison Alter, that reportedly went into effect the morning of March 9, 2017.

Dr. Alter, as you of course know, in her 2016 political campaign for the City Council District 10 seat repeatedly emphasized that she is a public-policy expert with a PhD in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., and with prior training in public-policy issues at Stanford University in northern California, she also emphasized.

The cited public-policy decision by Council Member Alter, as quoted to me on March 9 by another City Government of Austin official, permanently forbids me from ever again making any phone call of any type directly to, or ever again sending any written communications of any type directly to, or ever at any time visiting, her own City Council office in City Hall in downtown Austin.

When I indicated to you in our phone conversation today that I personally question the legality of the "no-calls, no-letters, no visits" reported ban on myself by Council Member Alter, you replied:

"Mr. McMillan, we do not represent outside parties (sic). We represent City officials and City staff. We'd be on the other side (from yourself) on that issue."

At no time during our phone conversation today did you ever cite to me any allegedly illegal conduct of any type by myself toward Austin District 10 resident and current City Council Member Dr. Alison Alter.

At no time during our phone conversation today did you ever dispute or inquire about the statement I attributed to a male City of Austin "Community Liaison" official who had visited my apartment unit on the morning of March 9, 2017, and informed me in person at that time that Council Member Alter on her own initiative personally imposed each of the cited permanent prohibitions or permanent bans on me.

As you may already be very aware, Assistant City Attorney Gayle, I am myself a dependably civil and law-abiding and honest, gainfully employed, single-by-choice, longtime-celibate-by-choice, permanently alcohol-free (ever since 1990) and never previously addicted, lifelong-tobacco-free and anti-tobacco-minded, permanently marijuana-free (ever since 1984) and anti-marijuana-minded as well as anti-medical-marijuana-minded, lifelong-tattoo-less and anti-tattoos-minded, facially-cleanshaven and anti-facial-hair-minded, consistently clean-talking (no profanity or obscenities by me in my everyday conversations with others), religiously-independent (Progressive Prohibitionist) and lifelong-non-Christian as well as lawfully non-Christian, non-transsexual and anti-sex-change-operations-minded, permanently jewelry-less-by-choice and platonicly polite, adult male resident of Austin District 10. I myself have no criminal-conviction record, and I take great pride in being very honorable in that and other ways.

I might add that I am a certified direct descendant of the Rev. William Brewster, the great Puritan religious leader who served as head chaplain on the Mayflower and as a leading adviser to Governor William Bradford of the British-governed Plymouth Colony---territory south of Boston that today is situated in the U.S. Commonwealth (state) of Massachusetts.

I am personally shocked and very dismayed that a citizen of Austin as honorable as I myself obviously am, would somehow be denied my asserted civil right and legal right to myself directly contact the City Council office of the one total Austin City Council member, Dr. Alison Alter, who directly serves and directly represents me on the Austin City Council.

However, as I politely emphasized to you in our phone conversation today, I of course have fully and immediately honored Council Member Alter's cited requests of me that I was informed about for the first time ever on the morning of March 9, 2017.

Assistant City Attorney Gayle, I would appreciate a courtesy reply note from you on all of this.

In that courtesy reply note, please simply confirm for me in writing that this factual statement about what we discussed in our brief telephone conversation today is, in fact, fully accurate.

Also in that courtesy reply note, please state to me in writing (if true) that you have no reason to believe or suspect that Council Member Alter was misquoted or misrepresented in any way by the City of Austin-employed and City of Austin-designated "Community Liaison" to myself, James Turner, the white male Texas State University alumnus who himself visited my apartment unit on March 9, 2017.

Thank you in advance for your helpful reply note to me on this.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

CITY HALL OFFICIAL: SHE IS NOT AWARE OF ANY CITY COUNCIL MEMBER (OTHER THAN DISTRICT 10 COUNCIL MEMBER ALISON ALTER, I MYSELF POINTED OUT) WHO HAS IMPOSED A PERMANENT BAN ON ANY AND ALL E-MAIL LETTERS OR PHONE CALLS TO THAT COUNCIL MEMBER'S CTY HALL OFFICE FROM A CONSTITUENT RESIDING IN THAT COUNCIL MEMBER'S DISTRICT



"Not to my knowledge" (exact quote), replied Austin City Council District 5 Council Member Ann Kitchen's Constituent Liaison, Dora Anguiano, when asked by me on the telephone at 4:54 p.m. today (Monday, April 24, 2017) whether Ms. Anguiano is herself aware of any case of any Austin City Council member under the new system of direct representation by geographical district who has ever at any time imposed a permanent ban on e-mail letters or phone calls from a resident of that Council member's district.

Ms. Anguiano also stated that it would be appropriate for me to direct my inquiries about this public-policy issue to the Office of Austin Mayor Steve Adler.

Earlier today, I did in fact send an e-mail letter about this public-policy issue to the female executive assistant to Mayor Adler, who herself schedules one-to-one meetings at City Hall between law-abiding Austin residents such as myself and our city's distinguished and very influential Mayor.

Mayor Adler, a private attorney, is the second Jewish mayor in the entire history of Austin

This email response is to let you know that CAPCOG has no correspondence or records during the time period that meet the criteria of your request.

In response to your initial question to Eric Carter, we should also let you know that CAPCOG’s homeland security program is a planning and grant administration program that is focused on training and equipping first responders in our region. 


 Our homeland security program has nothing to do with individual residences or home invasions. 

We apologize for any oversight in informing you about this when your first inquiry was sent.

Dear Public Information Coordinator for the Austin-based Capital Area Council of Governments,

This is a Texas Open Records request i which I seek to obtain from your regional government authority that conducts planning for and serves 10 counties in this region---with Williamson County, Travis County, Bastrop County, Burnet County, and Hays County among those 10 counties---copies of the following:

---any documents that at any time since April 17, 2011, were generated or written or forwarded or sent by, or on behalf of, the primary attorney or chief attorney or General Counsel or Assistant General Counsel employed by your regional government authority at any time during that six-year time period, including on April 22, 2017, and that, in each such case, refer at least once in any manner to myself, John Kevin McMillan of Austin, Texas.

---any documents that at any time since April 17, 2011, including on April 22, 2017, were generated or written or forwarded or sent by, or on behalf of, your regional government's Director of Homeland Security, with Mr. Eric Carter currently holding that position of leadership, and that, in each such case, refer at least once in any manner to myself, John Kevin McMillan of Austin, Texas.


---any documents that at any time since April 17, 2011, including on April 22, 2017, were generated or written or forwarded or sent by, or on behalf of, your regional government's Executive Director, with Ms. Betty Voights currently holding that very influential position for your government agency in Austin, and that, in each such case, refer at least once in any manner to myself, John Kevin McMillan of Austin, Texas.

EXCLUDED FROM THE SCOPE of this public-information request are any and all letters or e-mail letters that were written exclusively and solely by myself, John Kevin McMillan of Austin.


INCLUDED, however, IN THE SCOPE of this public-information request are any written responses generated or authored by an official or staff member of your government agency or by anyone else other than myself, John Kevin McMillan of Austin, and that referred in any way to any e-mail correspondence of any type from myself.

This public-information request was prompted in part by the surprising absence of any reply note to me from your regional government authority's Director of Homeland Security, Eric Carter, in response to the following (see below) e-mailed question that I had politely posed to him in writing on November 30, 2016.

This public-information request was also prompted by the also-surprising absence of any follow-up note to me or follow-up phone call to me by Doug Greco, Chief of Staff for my own duly-elected representative in the Texas House, District 49 State Rep. Gina Hinojosa, in regard to Mr. Greco's written promise to me on March 24, 2017 (below).

In that March 24 statement, Mr. Greco had indicated to me that he would contact your government agency's Homeland Security Director, Mr. Eric Carter, and obtain for me a written response by Mr. Carter to the question that I myself had directly posed to Mr. Carter on November 30, 2016.

My legal name is John Kevin McMillan. I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, on April 27, 1957. I am an alumnus of the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

I am also the founder and only currently approved member of a new and non-Christian religion, the implicitly-deistic, alcohol-free, marijuana-free and illicit-drug-free, and tobacco-free Progressive Prohibitionist Religion, that has very stringent membership-eligibility requirements.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Subject: urgent qustion for Rep. Gina Hinojosa Fw: 11-30-16 question for CACOG Homeland Security Director

March 20, 2017

Dear State Representative Gina Hinojosa in Austin, Texas,


Best Wishes to you in your first year as a distinguished and very honorable member of the Texas House of Representatives of the Texas Legislature.

Rep. Hinojosa, are you willing to help me persuade the "Capital Area Council of Governments" Homeland Security Director, Mr. Eric Carter, to send me a reply letter to the following public-policy question (below) that I had posed to him nearly four months ago?

I am making this hopefully-polite request of you because I still have not heard back from Mr. Carter about this very important public-policy issue that has a huge bearing on my own personal safety at nighttime inside my locked private bedroom of my bolt-locked rental apartment in Austin.

Thank you in advance, Rep. Hinojosa, for your prompt reply note to me on this.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

John Kevin McMillan.

Dear Homeland Security Director Carter,

Would you please tell me which actions your Austin-based regional council of governments pursues to help prevent and deter any and all home-invasion crimes that would victimize rent-paying occupants and rent-paying tenants inside their rental apartment unit in Austin?

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

Burrows's high-ranking staff member Mr. Jeramy Kitchen. This courtesy carbon-copy is being shared with Rep. Burrows and Jeramy Kitchen based on the information I read online tonight that the Texas House Committee on County Affairs has jurisdiction and legal authority over any and all of the Regional Councils of Government in Texas.

AUSTIN MAYOR STEVE ADLER ON MONDAY, APRIL 24, 2017, POLITELY ACCEPTS REPLY NOTE FROM ME ON HIS E-MAILED INVITATION THAT I AS A DISTRICT 10 RESIDENT MEET WITH MAYOR ADLER IN PERSON AT CITY HALL, WITH ONE MAJOR TOPIC I PLAN TO DISCUSS WITH THE MAYOR BEING THE ALLEGED DISENFRANCHISEMENT POLICY TOWARD ME BY MY DULY-ELECTED DISTRICT 10 AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL MEMBER, THE HARVARD-TRAINED PUBLIC-POLICY EXPERT Dr. ALISON ALTER

April 24, 2017


Dear Ms. Shack,


I would like to thank Mayor Adler for inviting me, through an e-mail reply note (below) he sent to me earlier this morning, to myself schedule a one-to-one meeting between myself and Mayor Adler at City Hall in downtown Austin.

My best days for me to meet with Mayor Adler are Mondays, since Monday is my only off-duty day of the week.

Please send me a date and time on any Monday in the very near future that is convenient for Mayor Adler, and I will make a point of being there at that scheduled date and time.


Among the topics I have an urgent need to discuss with Mayor Adler is the very alarming defacto alleged possible disenfranchisement of myself --- a law-abiding and gainfully employed single adult white male lifelong-non-Christian Austin District 10 resident --- by the City Government of Austin.

I am referring to the reported policy decision in March 2017 by my duly elected Austin District 10 City Council Member, the Harvard University-trained public-policy expert Dr. Alison Alter, to herself personally forbid me from ever directly contacting her or any of her own City Hall staff members at any time subsequent to the early morning hours of March 9, 2017, according to an in-person statement that a City Government of Austin-appointed "Community Liaison" official verbalized to me in person inside my northwest-Austin rental apartment unit on the morning of March 9.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,


John Kevin McMillan, founder and only current approved member of the non-proselytizing, non-Christian and implicitly-deistic, quality-of-life-minded Progressive Prohibitionist Religion, a fully independent new religious denomination with very stringent membership-eligibility requirements.

I myself have been a daily and year-round paying passenger on Cap Metro buses in Austin, Texas, throughout the applicable multi-year time period.

I am a gainfully employed, fully ambulatory, permanently alcohol-free and lifelong-tobacco-free, dependably civil and law-abiding and honest, polite, factually-minded, single adult white non-Hispanic male current resident of Austin City Council voting precinct District 10.

During the time periods applicable to this public-information request, I have resided at the following Austin addresses, respectively:

Throughout the entire applicable six-year period for this request, I have maintained and paid for personal landline home phone service of my own with the home phone number throughout that six-year period of (512) 342-2295. During the approximately-two-month period of 2015 in which I resided at Crossland Economy Studios, my residential phone number there was: (512) 331-4747, Room 133.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you anticipate that you might plan to charge me more than $20 in total processing or copying fees and postage fees on this.
