About that teabagging, Kathy ...


It occurs to me to observe that a screechy, foul-mouthed, racist harpy like Kathy Shaidle who constantly whinges on about government overspending and the eeeeevils of socialism really shouldn't have a personal history that reads thusly:

Two years later, Kathy received a number of Ontario Arts Council grants, including a Work-in-Progress, to finish her first poetry collection. She left CNT in May 1991 to write full-time, and six weeks later she was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythamatosis (SLE), a chronic, incurable autoimmune disease.

Catholic New Times asked Kathy to write "a couple of articles" about her life with lupus. These pieces proved so popular that Kathy continued her saga in almost every issue of CNT for the next four years. During that time, she received four Canadian Church Press awards in three different categories, as well as invitations to speak, and dozens of enthusiastic calls and letters.

After spending those four years on government disability, Kathy returned to the work-force as Marketing Co-ordinator at Novalis, Canada's oldest and largest Roman Catholic publisher. She is also enrolled in the Publishing program at Ryerson.

You'd think someone who sucked up a bunch of government grants, then went on government-funded disability and finally ended up at a government-funded post-secondary institution wouldn't be so much of a douchebag when it came to bitching about government overspending.

But that's just a suggestion.

P.S. While we're on the subject, anyone who's a member of a religion that enjoys the luxury of tax exemption in this country should really shut the fuck up about socialism.

Not to mention writing for a government-supported publication.

Maybe she's just really trying to make the argument that leftism produces awful people...such as herself.

But she never was a leftist. She was just a drunk.

Not to mention admonishing all for not following the words of the Church and calling for all to suck up and lead a better life and not live in sin and bohemian selfishness, while she lived with a divorced man who was not granted an anulment by the Church (and therefore should, by her, be considered to be an adultering married man) and whinges about how unfair the Church is for not granting the anulment.

As in all things, conservative principles are not meant for conservatives.
