Hope ‘n’ Change is manned by suspiciously named author/artist Stilton Jarlsberg.  He hates lefty Democrats, has a great sense of fun and possesses the largest collection of old graphic clip-art and cartoons known to man; what more could you ask for in a conservative blog?  For extra credit he maintains a very regular running commentary on the news in a pithy, appropriately Obama-skewering tone that should keep you coming back for tomorrow’s installment.  Super-creative and much recommended.













Learn all about Lympians at!  Before you start racking your memory of  Native American studies or extra-terrestrial species, I’ll give you a hint: the term is short for Olympians, i.e. liberal types residing around Olympia, WA and apparently just as nutty as their brethren from Berkeley or Manhattan.  Check in on Sondra K. as she fearlessly skewers these greener-than-green wackos in posts that are as edgy and fun as they are conservative.


There’s no better name for a blog or website than that, so I won’t even try to top it with a clever post title.  I Own The World is a humor site for those who liked Airplane! and prefer their jazz real rather than “smooth.”  When you tire of the ersatz-edginess of people like Letterman– whose worldview afterall fits neatly into the Katie Couric/Oprah Winfrey intellectual continuum– try this stuff.  Nary a PC post to be found… breathe the air of Freedom!






My fellow American Citizens,
 What do Billy Mays , Michael Jackson, and Farrah Fawcett have in common?  The news would rather talk about them than the President, U.S. Congress, or Judge Sotomayor.  They want you to stop and think, “Where was I when Elvis died?” not “Where was I when my Civil Liberties died?”  for those of you paying more attention to pop culture than real life I have some breaking news for you.  Bush is no longer President, stop blaming him.  Unemployment is up, contrary to what the “news” reported Obama saying.  North Korea wants to kill us.  U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday the coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was illegal and would set a “terrible precedent” of transition by military force unless it was reversed.
 Do not get me wrong —  President Oabma is not being under-covered in the news.  We know that he has a new dog, not from the pound like he suggested.  We know that he likes to go on dates with his wife that cost over one hundred thousand dollars at a time.  We know that his Grandmother was a “typical white woman”.  We know what church he attends, or attended, even though he didn’t know any of the sermons given by his pastor for 20 years.  We know that he will allow five days of public comment before signing any bills, oops he did it again.
 The U.S. House just passed the single largest tax increase in U.S. history.  Congress wants the right to control anything that emits Carbon Dioxide, including but not limited to: , Coal, & Cows.  Oh, did I mention that we emit Carbon Dioxide also?  Or that trees and plants need it to live?  It would seem that the 1,500 page bill passing (219-212) would be alittle more worthy of mentioning.  Now Al Gore can sell his “Carbon Off-Sets , ” whatever that really is.  I suppose that Obama is keeping his promise that “Energy Prices Will Skyrocket Under My Cap and Trade Plan”*  Also, good job passing the “Official” appology for slavery.  Let’s see, slavery Officially ended when the 13th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified by the states in 1865, the 14th Amendment provided for Civil Rights in 1868, the 15th Amendment banned racial restrictions on voting in 1870.  So, everyone who was directly affected by conditions in the United States before this time period is dead!  Let’s move on already.

 This just in ‘Transformers’ tops global box office.  Wait, falling for media distractions again.  Well it made the headlines anyways.
 Let’s make a new law.  In order to be a Supreme Court Justice, you have to have less than 50% of your cases overturned by the Supreme Court.  Attention Judge Sotomayor, discrimination is as discrimination does.  You do not have to be a minority in the total global population to be discriminated againt.  Oh wait, there are more than 6.5 billion people and nearly 2/3 of them are Asians.  I suppose the White fire fighters were minorities afterall.  The Equal Protection Clause, part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, provides equal protection and does not make room for a “wise Latina woman” whom would judge better than white male.
 So, you stick with the top headline on CNN “Jackson’s mom gets guardianship of his kids” and I’ll stick with “Target: Hawaii”.  Thanks Wall Street Journal for bringing news.  Now go back to reading the complete coverage of Michael Jackson’s death.

 (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
