Civil Liberties Defense Center – And Me!

I just contacted the CLDC and then donated $20 bucks to their cause. Here is a video I made in 2016 when I went and heard Lauren Regan and a “demonstration expert” at the New World Bakery. Note the dude chuckling. This is the chuckle heard around the world because I just suggested, rather than put CRAZIES outside the Republican Convention, have a million leftist radical Democrats register as Republicans, and – DISRUPT from the inside. I say this about three quarters in. This is a historic suggestion coming from a person called a “lunatic”.

If Belle and Alley had asked me to join the Whoville Family, things would not have gone so – NUTS? I used them – and the truth many homeless people are DISRUPTIVE CRAZIES – as my political model. It worked! The Republican Party was destroyed by Trump’s Beloved Crazy Folk he launched against REPUBLICAN Mike Pence – and our Capitol. We came real close to seeing our VP lynched! WHO saw – that coming? Me – the mad man!

“Don’t be an outsider! Be an insider!”

It will come out that Trump and his family – knew REAL CRAZY PEOPLE were joining their party – because THEY LOVE CHAOS! Jacob has a lawyer saying his client was misled and LURED!

I am going to ask Lauren to sue Buck&Morris for discrimination against Mentally Ill People i.e. My Family. Rosemary told her four children – she had a scholarship to Camarillo State Hospital. My best friend, kidnapped Christine’s best friend from – there. He was Nancy’s lover when we lived on Pine Street, before she became Owsley’s lover. I now understand when Nancy invited to hike up Mount Pisgah with Sue and Chuck Kesey – and nine Pranksters – I was being made a honorary member – of that crazy family!

On this day, I make Ken Kesey a honorary member of the Presco Family who called their mother ‘Ma Barker’. I met Ken’s mother, and she is very pleasant – and sane! You can now blame her son’s crazy behavior on…….Rosemary! My father called me ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ because I ordered him out of our house – with a big butcher knife. He was going to take Vicki Presco on a drunken drive to Grandma’s House – who lived a hundred miles away in Roseville.

Daughter Dead – Again!

Posted on December 30, 2020 by Royal Rosamond Press

Here is the play I was working on in 1997 after I moved from SHIPS housing on Kinkaid, to a quad owned by Talray. Hollis Williams and I became friends. He was working for Agripac. I took him to their annual picnic. They would be outraged to see how I have been treated by my neighbors and members of Whoville.

Yesterday, my friend, Casey Farrell brought up the notion he had when we first met in 1997, whether I had several people helping me with my study because I showed him so many projects I was working on. I had down a watercolor of Playland at the Beach and put a slit in it where I made a rising moon. This was a set design for ‘Daughter Dead’ which is about how the evangelical church was a threat to take over our Democracy via food handouts to the poor and homeless in the basement. I would later discuss with my friend, Ed Fadely about Dick Armey’s Faith-based initiative that would allow churches to recieve Federal money to do what they church did with tithing for over two thousand years. Today, Trump has turned our government on its head by demanding a $2,000 dollar stimilus check instead of $600. Churches have recieved Fed checks. Who saw this coming?…….I DID!

I met Joseph Ballet at a rally in front of Peacehealth against electric shock treatments that may have been taking place at the Johnson Unit. Christine’s best friend was destroyed by shock treatments. We got to talking and I told him I was working on a play. He told me he was a writer. I suggested he be a co-author. A month later he tells me he could care less about the homeless. I was blown away. He had gone on and one about the dynamics between his mothe rand he over his desrie to write. He is a good writer, but, I dismissed our project. I now understand he was using me because I had been on the bus with Ken Kesey, and my sister was famous. There is a similarity to ‘One Flew Over The Cuckcoo’s Nest’. Ken’s good friend, Nancy Hamren, is my childhood friends and was at my graduation from Serenity Lane. Some say Kesey died of alcoholism. Here is my friend Ed Corbin who I and Mark Gall got into treatment.

What I am realizing, thanks to my therapist, that people are using me because I have connections to famous people. This will stop! I am learning to protect myself. Ed was on stage at Harvard with Jack Kerouac. Everything I write is protected by a special copyright designed for Ministers. When I met Belle, I saw her as my Marilyn, a eighteen year old homeless woman who lives in the ruins of Fundland.

The daughter I did not know I had, is thirteen. She and her mother are looking for my famous sister, Christine Rosamond Benton. Heather and her mother, do not know she died in March of 94.

Daughter Dead

Posted on September 21, 2019by Royal Rosamond Press

In 1997 I began my play about the abuse of the homeless and mentally ill. I was going to show this to Belle when she came over to model. I did not know her mother was the Queen of the Eugene Theatre. Kasadah!

I was not told my father was dead, and my mother was dying. They made my famous sister out to be insane in their book. They were not going to tell me my sister Vicki was dead. I wrote this ten days after she died, thinking she was still alive. I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here’s what she said to meQue será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will beWhen I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart, what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows
Day after day
Here’s what my sweetheart saidQue será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will beNow I have children of my own
They ask their mother, what will I be
Will I be handsome
Will I be rich
I tell them tenderlyQue será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be
Que será, será

Marilyn is a homeless idiot savant living in the ruins of Playland at the Beach in San Francisco. She would be diagnosed with Aspergers that is known to produce beings of extraordinary mental powers. It’s all here! The Archetype of a Masterpiece. This is my farewell to the Generation of Love – and Fun. With the demolition of Playland, and the Fun House, comes the rise of the Righteous Right, the inventors of the new Inquisition bent on attacking the Liberal-Left – where it hurts.
The Prankster Clowns must be rounded up and put in a Loony Bin, or, buried alive in the ‘Mad Mine’. All the Fun Ore has been depleted. Time to go to work for Ronny McClown the Out of Work Actor, the Right-wing Con Man.

The reason I abandoned this play was the incredibly sad conclusion that the creative telepathic connection I had with my late sister, was no more. I was able to keep that channel open for two years. I had lost contact with Marilyn Reed. My play was turning into a musical. There is a very prophetic number with Aryan dancers singing like Negros as they go down the isles of Limbo Church – that will blow your mine! What muse, what spirit, is dictating my……stuff!

My protagonist is caught up in a legal battle over the land where Bohemian Playland was built. The Yuppiefiers want to build condos. It’s a case of Gentrification. It would not be till the year 2000 that I discovered one of my great grandfathers founded a theme park in Belmont. My sixteen year old daughter came into my life in 2,000. I thought I was fatherless. Instead of having fun together, making up for lost time, she was the point of the compass for unfunny folks waiting in the wings, waiting for me to strike it rich – as a writer! There was not a writer or artist among the lot, but, when they perceived, somehow, their fortune took a turn for the worse, they threw their monkey wrench into my works. Most fun dies like this, with a scowl and a whimper.
Not till this morning did I realize Belle was Marilyn, who “ran with the Psycho-babel Bitches from Hell’ in the streets of New York. Two hours after I met Belle, I am on the phone telling Marilyn Reed I had met a younger version of her. Twenty years later I get a letter from Rena informing me of her amazing memory. Pan is present. The broken merry-go-round is Belle’s parents Labyrinth walk, that came to an end. Or. did it?
Look, there is a fallen tower with the words “Diving Bell” upon it. I captured Beauty in a play that has held a city hostage, for all these years. She who was asleep, is now awoken.
Mon Muse! My beautiful muse! Alas, we are free! “We are all a chuckle and a kiss away from returning to paradise.

This is a victory for both of us, for within minutes of beholding her, I knew I was going to immortalize her. I knew she was the one after capturing her in a video. I turned off my camera in order to explain to her why she is the one. I just said the name “Rosamond”

‘Daughter Dead’ is the name of the un-finished play I co-authored with Joseph Balleta who I met at Saturday Market in 1996. I needed help. I was overwhelmed. I might have been the most prolific writer in the history of Eugene – and still am! This play was not finished because Joseph and I had a falling out. He, and his mother, were mainly interested in furthering his writing career, while I was driven to help the homeless – and take on the Christian-right who had invented this Con Job to get around helping most folks in need with government money. They were going to take control of the churches and use them as a smokescreen in what was then called ‘Compassionate Conservatism’. Needless to say my contribution was all over the place, and……………….INSANE!

Joseph wanted a pay-day and recognition. He knew I had been on the bus and was…

GOP Sen. Pat Toomey on McConnell linking $2,000 direct payments to other…Sen. Marco Rubio: Dr. Fauci lied about coronavirus — I am appalled by his…Trump upends GOP’s renewed focus on deficits, splitting party with push for $2,000 checks

Just as Republicans were rediscovering their fixation with the national debt in the wake of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, President Trump scrambled the political calculus by calling on the government to write $2,000 checks to more than 150 million Americans.PauseCurrent Time 0:49/Duration 1:22Loaded: 73.36%Unmute0HQCaptionsFullscreenMcConnell blocks Senate Democrats’ attempt to increase stimulus checks to $2,000Click to expand

The result has been a rapidly shifting realignment in Republican ideology. GOP officials just last week grudgingly signed off on $600 stimulus checks, tailored to meet their demand to keep the cost of a massive pandemic relief package under $1 trillion. Now, many are rushing to support the larger checks, which would add hundreds of billions of dollars to the nation’s credit card.

At the center of the shift is Trump, who has spent four years ignoring the national debt as it ballooned by nearly 50 percent, growing to $21.4 trillion on his watch. Trump’s desire to leverage additional government largesse for political benefit is now competing with the desire of GOP leaders to start reining in federal spending and reestablishing their party’s small-government orthodoxy before Democrats return to the White House.

That tension is set to play out on the Senate floor this week as a growing number of Republicans have signed on to Trump’s effort to back the $2,000 checks. Senate Democrats unanimously support the additional money, which means the measure is within striking distance of passage even as it splits the Republican Party.

Trump has cast the $2,000 checks — which could bear his name and reach Americans’ bank accounts shortly before he leaves office — as the smart thing to do politically and prudent public policy, given the shaky economy. He has made no mention of the national debt he once promised to eliminate in eight years.

“Unless Republicans have a death wish, and it is also the right thing to do, they must approve the $2000 payments ASAP,” Trump wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “$600 IS NOT ENOUGH!”

Some Republican lawmakers — including those who may be eyeing higher office — have expressed support for the $2,000 checks. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) sought to explain his newfound support in a way that also acknowledged his party’s previous antipathy toward deficits.

“I share many of my colleagues’ concern about the long-term effects of additional spending, but we cannot ignore the fact that millions of working class families across the nation are still in dire need of relief,” Rubio said in a statement Monday. “Congress should quickly pass legislation to increase direct payments to Americans to $2,000.”

Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), who earlier this year objected to a $600-a-week unemployment benefit, also came out strongly in favor of the $2,000 checks after Trump called for the larger amount.

Graham, who is slated to be the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee next year, had joined his colleagues in talking more openly since Biden’s win about the need to get government spending under control.

With interest rates low and economic devastation settling in throughout much of the country, economists say this is an especially bad time to focus on the worrying growth of the national debt. Instead, policymakers should focus on boosting the economy with more government spending, said Mark Zandi, chief economist with Moody’s Analytics.

“It ensures that the economy will navigate to the other side of the pandemic without going backward,” Zandi said. Increasing the relief checks to $2,000, he said, is “the right economic policy.”

Zandi added that the politics of spending and deficits are morphing in a way that could convince a number of Republicans that large federal payments to individual Americans is also a good political move.

Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, two GOP senators facing a critical runoff election in Georgia next week, have voiced enthusiastic support for the larger checks despite their history of touting small government. After months of branding their Democratic opponents as “socialists,” Loeffler and Perdue now find themselves in agreement with challengers Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in supporting new massive government spending.

Democrats have seized on the fissure emerging between Trump and many Republican lawmakers, gleefully pushing for votes that highlight the GOP disunity. Some have called out Republicans for increasing the deficit early in Trump’s presidency by passing tax cuts.

After the House passed a bill late Monday approving the $2,000 checks with the support of 44 Republican lawmakers, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) demanded that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) bring the measure to a vote on the Senate floor.

“I don’t want to hear that we can’t afford it. I don’t want to hear that it would add too much to the deficit,” Schumer said. “Senate Republicans added nearly $2 trillion to the deficit to give corporations a massive tax cut.”

For his part, Trump has tried to publicly pressure Republicans and privately win them over in a final attempt to sign significant legislation before leaving office. After holding up the larger, bipartisan pandemic relief package for days — in part because it authorized checks to individual Americans of only $600 — Trump won a vague promise that the Senate would vote on the $2,000 checks.
