 (In his latest blast, “Letter To President Obama,” Jason Sanborn shows why liberals need to be afraid, very afraid.  Jsaon would be happy to circulate this so please contact me at if you’d like a copy.  Or copy the letter as it is here, but then change the color of the font when you paste it.) 
Mr. President,
 You have given hope to the citizens of the United States as well as the world.  With this historic election, you have shown that in America anything can be possible.  Now that we have moved past the first 100 days, we can get a picture of your vision for our Country.  We can see what you promised us in your message of change.
 Thank you for putting Immigration Reform on your to-do list.  I understand with the current economical situation that securing our boarders and deporting Illegal Immigrants cannot be at the forefront of items to take care of, especially with unemployment increasing.  Your proposed stance of bringing illegal immigrants into the legal system by recognizing that they violated the law, and imposing fines and other penalties to fit the offense will surely deter any future lawlessness.  Besides with GM moving $1 billion in their government financial aid to their Brazil operations, maybe the illegal immigrants will follow.  I am sure that when the time comes you will again call on advisors to break out in to focus groups and come up with solutions.
 Thank you for your work on the job market.  You said that the recovery plan will save or create about 3.5 million jobs.  But I must inquire, how do you quantify which jobs were not lost?  The National Unemployment Rate is now about 8.9%.  539,000 jobs were lost in April while 663,000 jobs were lost in March.  But I must inquire, are you holding the big savings for November Sweeps?
 Thank you for bringing a new light of focus on the National Debt.  On the campaign trail,  you said that President Bush was practicing “reckless” economic policies that are “mortgaging our children’s future on a mountain of debt.”  Well, the deficit has changed.  It Increased.  In 2004, President Bush set a budget with a record $521 billion dollars in deficit.  Your estimates for the 2010 budget call for nearly $1.2 trillion in new deficit.  Which will actually be down from the CBO estimates of $1.8 trillion gap this year.  Now, that’s change we can not only believe in but that we can also see.
 Thank you for working on foreign relations.  You sought to bring a changed world view of United States.  You have reached out to nations that we have not been on the best of terms with to improve their perception of us.  This has apparently already begun to work.  Now countries like Iran and North Korea are no longer concerned about US involvement in their actions.  In fact, Iran is sending warships in to international waters, while North Korea is testing their long range missiles.  Without you, this would not have been possible.
 Thank you for acting swiftly in your judgment.  Jimmy Carter took a little over three years to create the image of the U.S. as a confused and soft power, you have managed to do that in your first 100 days.  I understand the necessity to act urgently on important matters, a five day waiting period should only apply to handguns not to laws.  After all, I am sure that you thoroughly review every bill and remove all pork before signing them.  I am also sure that the American people can feel safe from special interest groups.  On Jan. 1 there were 4,611 political action committees, 9 percent more than the 4,234 PACs a year earlier.  But with your promise of reducing the role of lobbyists, we can rest assured that they will not be in the Halls of Congress trying to influence decisions since your lifting the ban on former registered lobbyists working in the administration.
 However with your previous experience in community affairs, I am certain that we are headed in a direction.  I look forward to long lines at the gas pump, doctors office, and unemployment office.  I can tell my grandchildren about how there were 50 States until the “Great Unifier” came along and they separated.
Thank you for bringing Change,
Jason Sanborn

Jose Reyes (one of my favorite blogging journalists because he is one of the most passionate) writes as ever with the fury of one who has walked the walk– in this case an all-too-concrete familiarity with the hell of Castro’s Cuba.  Today at Cubanology  he starts out:  The UN Human Rights Council is a total disgrace to use the term “human rights” and should appropriately be renamed  “The UN Inhumane Rights Council.” The United Nations should not exist because it violates the exact purpose and reason why it was established and created. There is no better example of misrepresentation than the favorable non-discriminating treatment towards the Cuban regime. Cuba is the perfect example of how the UN handles and conducts business within its sinful walls. For its members to knowingly turn a blind eye away from the 50 years of tyrannical rule in Cuba can only be classified as Evil. 

That’s just a warm up.  He follows with copious details and background on the shocking self-contradiction that is the UN.  You can check out the rest here.

Some of you may have noticed that in the email of this drawing sent out earlier this morning, Diversity had the wrong hand over her heart.  This does not denote that I am dyslexic.  The original design for the overall drawing had been the reverse of this current version, but I then realized we would not be able to see the book covers that way and it’s always good to know what unexpected and original material those two are reading.  After completing it I failed to notice that Diversity’s wrong hand was now over her heart (since corrected).  Not that anyone in that family would have noticed the difference anyway.


Found this while cruising around the ‘sphere and think it clearly deserves the Most Trenchant Sarcasm of the Week award.  I’ve been sending it around to friends and fellow bloggers and you might want to also.  A kind of dark classic, if you ask me.


An open letter to the youth of America regarding the 2008 Presidential election:

To the youth of America,

     Thank you for turning out to vote in your first Presidential Election. I am sure that many of you have never followed or been interested in politics before and chose this occasion to be your first experience. You probably voted against your parents thinking that your youth made you more aware of the new global environment than their years of experience in life.


     Thank you for protecting the illegal combatants who are detained in Guantanamo Bay. Ensuring their Constitutional Rights IS more important than your right to live. Even though they waged a war against innocent unsuspecting civilians in the United States, they themselves have been mistreated. The inhumane torture that they were subjected to of being gently suspended on a blanket while having small amounts of water poured on their heads is far worse than crashing planes in to buildings in urban highly populated areas.


     Thank you for giving Congress a Democratic Majority. Now they are free to pass legislation increasing the National Deficit by far more than it has ever been after they campaigned on a balanced budget and reducing the deficit. Nancy Pelosi is now free from any charges of purgery from only being informed about CIA interrogation practices rather than being briefed on them. Now we can move forward with prosecuting the former administration for keeping the Country safe from Man Caused Destruction by means of the Over-seas Contingency Operation. It is more important that Bush lied about the foreign intelligence that we received to get us involved for a war for oil than the Democrats telling any partial untruths about Our military harassing and murdering innocent civilians.


     Thank you for helping keep our borders open. For too long illegal immigrants have tried to dangerously cross our boarders and exist in our country without following the legal path to citizenship. Now all of those people can live without fear of being sent back to their country of origin and receive government assistance in the form of healthcare, childhood education, and food stamps to which they do not contribute.


     Thank you for helping to reduce Carbon Dioxide levels. We should not be responsible for providing a resource to plants for their existence. The earth has never regulated itself in the past from occurrences like volcanic explosions until government came along to test the air quality. Maybe now we can find a way to tax the production of oxygen from the carbon offset farms.


     Thank you for expanding healthcare. Now non-citizens have expanded healthcare coverage available to them at no cost. I suppose in this ever shrinking job market you all have already found steady employment to pay for the services that they are receiving. Businesses like hospitals should not be in the practice of making enough money to cover both their operating expenses and payroll when we have big government to decide who will receive healthcare, when, and to what extent.


     Maybe now that all of the world’s problems have been resolved we can focus on education. It is clear that in this country that we need reform. We not only need to be more competitive in the areas of math and science with the rest of the world, but it is now clear that we need reform in American History class as well.


     It is apparent with sites such as,, and that radical liberalism has moved mainstream. Politicians such as Janet Napolitano have redefined radicals as people who believe in the Constitution and religion. No longer are people in the radical movement confined to the outskirts of society like they were in the 1960s. We now can be wary of our veterans and people who want limited Federal Government intervention.


Thank you for believing in Change,

Imagine stumbling long and dangerously through the darkness of a nation thoroughly fogged up by Progressivism,  then suddenly coming across a pristine village where all the inhabitants love America, flags are for waving (not burning)  and A,C, L and U are just letters in the alphabet, untainted by destructive organizations.  You’ve reached Conservababes , a large, joyfully conservative cluster of bloggers (men and women can be Conservababes, it turns out).  Pull up a comfy chair,  pour yourself a cup of coffee (or something stronger) and just hang out:  you’re safe now.  Handy navigation tips will help you weave your way through the many topics, forums and personalities but getting lost is part of the fun as it turns out and at least you’ll be among friends.

Thanks for your patience over the last week or so in not receiving any Diversity Lane material in your email as usual.  I’ve run into a challenge on that count– am being labeled as “potential spam”– and need to arrange an alternate method of sending out my cartoons.  Please bear with me, I believe it will only be another day or two before things can resume as before.



[Memo from the Lanes]

Do you have a spare corner at your blog or website for this delightful child?  If so we hope you’ll consider allowing her to romp there.  She doesn’t eat much, watches lots of TV and hardly requires a thing.  Are temporarily unable to pay for your service but expecting any day now for the Government to begin subsidizing.  Warning: do not show her an American flag or she is liable to get all “patriotic” on you.  We believe this to be a passing phase– in most other ways she is normal.diversitylane_babysit_for-blog1


diversity-lane-logo-in-colorMany have asked: “Why no easy-use tab or link to the Diversity Lane Website from this blog? ”  The answer: we’ve been working on it but the gods (i.e. WordPress) will not allow for it, at least not in this blog-theme and not in the format of an easy, ever-present box or banner.  Instead I’ll be posting this message regularly as a kind of Magic Portal that will whisk you off to the troubled Leftist land of Diversity Lane.  Alcoholic beverage recommended but not required.

I found  this powerful rallying cry over at Social Sense, the top-notch blog manned by former Marine and current writing ace Mustang.  Hope you’ll take five minutes or less to absorb its absolutely essential reminder for our time: that in numbers we have the power to halt the arrogant and destructive Obamite tax & spend orgy presently bankrupting ourselves and future generations.  Killer stuff, a real keeper.
