Every so often, you read something so irritating that you just want to chew on a ball of tin-foil to take your mind off of how hacked off you are. Like over here, where we have commenter Dianne Wood who writes of the recent suggestion to defund the Status of Women Canada:
Why are you intolerant to another women's point of view? We can live together, as we have been. I just object to my tax money being used to support something I do not believe in.
Yes, Dianne, let's talk about tax money being spent to support things I don't believe in. Like, say, the fact that religion in Canada is tax-exempt. That kind of pisses me off -- that my tax dollars are going to prop up the churches. Why the fuck should I have to work so that those parasites can get a free ride?
And as I've written before, if you live in Ontario, it's a double boot to the nads since taxpayers also pay for the publicly-funded Catholic school system, and you have no idea how much I'd like not to have to shell out cash to keep subsidizing that rubbish.
Of course, the most amusing part of all of this is that, if you follow the links, you can end up at Dianne's blog where you learn she lives in Newmarket, Ontario and writes about Opus Dei. Yes, it takes a really breathtaking level of assholitude to be a Catholic living in Ontario and still complain about how your tax dollars are being used for things you disapprove of.
I'm betting Dianne doesn't even recognize the irony.
