Shona Holmes, Sex Advisor

I shit you not!

Truce Mediation Services -- Shona Robertson.com_1248729394665

I just got this from a commenter:  she apparently hides behind her maiden name (and with good reason).  My commenter said he/she has contacted Holmes to ask her about the discrepancies in her execrable anti-health care reform commercials… more to come, or as they say…

DEVELOPING…

    Ha. I saw her described somewhere as a ‘divorce consultant’ or something like that.

    Putting on the popcorn. . . :D

  2. 2 Dr. Prole Monday, July 27, 2009 at 1:45 pm

    Bow chika bow! Hey Shona let’s talk about sex! Know what really kills the mood for me? Worrying about medical bills!

  3. 3 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 1:50 pm

    fern hill – I think it’s interesting that she specializes in alternative dispute resolution — if she’s so good at it, why couldn’t she settle her dispute with OHIP?

  4. 4 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    Dr.Prole – No kidding eh, what a buzzkill.

  5. 5 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    Dr.Prole – Re what we were talking about in the other thread — it just took me 2 secs to find her phone number, so although I won’t be posting it, I’m sure someone else will. However I DO recommend people to call her and get her story. WTF, that other woman was bombarded for days with irate calls, let Shona take her own heat.

    Actually I’d like to see the MSM call her and get her story.

  6. 6 greenjenny Monday, July 27, 2009 at 1:56 pm

    Maybe she wants sex therapy covered under OHIP.

  7. 7 fern hill Monday, July 27, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    Oh. Look. There’s a wiki entry for her. It doesn’t seem to include a link to her website. That should be corrected, yes? ;)

  8. 8 Dr. Prole Monday, July 27, 2009 at 2:07 pm

    Tee hee, I wonder if she has a future on wingnut welfare, because I foresee a big drop in business for Miss Shona, American Princess.

    Ok let me just state for the record: threats, harassment = not cool. Prank calls i.e. “You do sex counseling? My old man’s pecker don’t work so good no more. It’s all old and floppy. We can’t fornicate no more. How do we fix it?” = teh funny. ;)

  9. 9 Toe Monday, July 27, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    OMFG! She can’t even spell.

    “This is the simple difference between delilght and dependency.” OHIP is gonna love this.
    Hey awhile ago I saw her listed as a LOBBYIST on the CNN doohickies under the face. She got paid? to diss Can health care?

  10. 10 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 3:04 pm

    green jenny – If she gets her way, nothing will be covered under OHIP.

  11. 11 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 3:05 pm

    fern hill – Oh! An omission! That should absolutely be corrected.

  12. 12 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    Prole – This is when I wish I knew something about hacking. Although, it’s probably best if the website stays as is… there might be 33 million Canadians mad at Shona Holmes, but there are about 150 million Americans mad at her too, and they should all have the opportunity to thank her for trying to screw them out of health care.

  13. 13 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 3:16 pm

    Toe – Of course she’s getting paid to do this (screw Americans out of health care).

    She’s been at this for awhile. I’m still curious to know how this whole campaign was initiated. Most people, when the doctor says their condition isn’t life-threatening and to wait 4 months, might be pissed off because they can’t get it over with, but generally they don’t immediately go out and remortgage their house to get treatment they don’t need.

    Something stinks

  14. 14 Toe Monday, July 27, 2009 at 3:43 pm

    JJ, the Bloomberg article of the 25th says she’s a divorce advisor, AS WELL AS THIS –

    She told her story to the House Energy and Commerce health subcommittee June 23, testifying that her sight rather than her life was in jeopardy.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aE9psIrN_KAU

  15. 15 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 3:58 pm

    Thanks Toe.

    Let the backpeddling begin, eh? But Bloomberg didn’t get the story completely right:

    “Mayo Clinic

    Instead, she went to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, where a second MRI revealed a brain tumor. She then returned to Canada, and said she again was told she would have to wait to see a specialist. So she went back to the Mayo Clinic for surgery, costing her $100,000.”

    The Mayo Clinic didn’t find a brain tumour, they found a benign cyst that didn’t need immediate treatment.

    Since it was a cyst that she’d had all her life — and the Mayo would have known this — it was definitely not an emergency, even for her sight.

    But another issue this makes me think of: If she testified it was her sight, but the commercials say it was a brain tumour, this is really skirting the edge of false advertising.

  16. 16 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 4:05 pm

    Toe – I just read her testimony and it’s actually not that different from the commercial.
    Lies, lies, lies.

    This woman really is a disgusting pig.

  17. 17 Angela West Monday, July 27, 2009 at 4:43 pm

    I must add that I am kind of shocked that she bills herself as a writer. And sex therapist. And mediator. And… health care advocate? How about whatever makes money? Apparently she threw something at the wall and it stuck, although it kind of smells too…

  18. 18 Buckets Monday, July 27, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    Isn’t it a crime to lie to Congress?

  19. 19 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    Angela – I was surprised she bills herself as a mediator when she can’t even negotiate with OHIP. Although, given that her treatment wasn’t necessary, I can understand OHIP’s reluctance to shovel out money to her.

    The more I think about her whole story the more something stinks about how it all got started. This just isn’t standard operating procedure

  20. 20 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    Buckets – It is indeed (isn’t that what nailed Bill Clinton?), but I reading the testimony I can see how they could get away with it — it’s outright lies, but not quite enough to nail someone.

    It’s a stretch but technically you could call her condition a brain tumour (if “tumour” is used as a catchall word for conditions both benign and malignant), and say it was located on her “brain” (since the pituitary gland is in the vicinity).

    They’re really skirting the edge here.

    O/T, are you on twitter?

  21. 21 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 6:06 pm

    To all & Sundry – I notice that conservative spammers have started posting comments seemingly in agreement that Holmes is a jerk, but when you click on the link in their name it goes to an anti-reform blog. It’s spam.

    So if you notice comments disappearing, that’s why.

  22. 22 Mike Monday, July 27, 2009 at 6:22 pm

    Wow.

    I just threw up in my mouth…

  23. 23 JJ Monday, July 27, 2009 at 6:31 pm

    I like the webpage… what’s with the friggin CHERRIES?? What’s that all about?

  24. 24 Buckets Monday, July 27, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    (JJ. I have a twitter acct, but haven’t really figured out what it’s for.)

  25. 25 Torontonian Monday, July 27, 2009 at 8:47 pm

    @JJ

    “Life is just a bowl of cherries” That was a song in the late ’40s or early ’50s.

    Perhpas she suggests that therapy with her renders her
    client’s life like a bowl of cherries. And as Erma
    Bombeck said in a book title: “If life is like a bowl
    of cherries, why am I doing in the pits?”

  26. 26 Just Some Poor Schmuck Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 12:47 am

    If she gets out to vote, she votes Reform/RePug. Birds of a feather and all.
    Shona’s got children? Who looks after them while she’s almost dying? Or not almost dying? Who looks after them while she’s in a foreign country selling her children’s arses down the river for a benign cyst and sucking up to neo-cons hoping for a bailout? Exposing them to the years of riducule she’s buying them today, never mind the fleeting money.
    Where is her community of Xtian Canadians praying and manifesting her recovery and feeding her children?
    Seriously, Canadian social services should be looking into this parent’s ability to look after her children. There is a threshold for Let Go and Let God that has not filtered down to parental responsibility, so far. Hillbillys are excluded cuz they don no no difference.
    If she decides to stay where her health has been assured, please Canada pack up her kids and forward them on to her. Fed Ex. Shipping and Handling Extra, and in US Funds.
    Surely she wants them there with her, genetic defects and all, eh!
    U betcha she’ll vote Palin 2012!
    A bargain at twice the price, America. Take it or leave it.

  27. 27 mouthyorange Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 3:01 am

    If you eat too many cherries, you end up with diarrhea.

  28. 28 Intransigentia Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 7:30 am

    The cherries are only on the sex page of her website. Strangely, though, she only talks about sex and porn addiction, not failure to consummate.

  29. 29 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:04 am

    Buckets – You can use it for posting links to your blog posts, that’s what most people do. (I don’t post to all of mine, just the ones that I think are good.) Also, a lot of people post links to articles and news items — I find a lot of blogging material that way.

    I used to think it was just another distraction, but now I actually find it quite useful. It really gets news out fast.

  30. 30 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:05 am

    Torontonian – Then why doesn’t she show a whole bowl or cherries instead of just one or two? I’m suspicious :P ;)

  31. 31 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:11 am

    Poor Shmuck – She’s not an American citizen, so she wouldn’t be voting Republican, but it certainly wouldn’t surprise me if she voted for Harper here in Canada. If she hates our health care that much, that’s right up harper’s alley.

    Seriously, Canadian social services should be looking into this parent’s ability to look after her children.

    Possibly, but that’s not a road I want to go down. I think there are better things to spend energy on, like reiterating over & over again what a FRAUD this woman is, and how the majority of Canadians are happy with our health care. That’s the message that will keep Americans from buying the propaganda that’s being shoveled at them, so that’s where I’d rather focus my efforts. But that’s just me.

  32. 32 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:13 am

    orange – That explains her verbal diarrhea wrt our health care system.

  33. 33 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:16 am

    Intransigentia

    Strangely, though, she only talks about sex and porn addiction, not failure to consummate.

    Given the wingnut circles she moves in, I’m sure she has plenty of opportunity to find clients who have that problem. Maybe this particular specialty takes up all her time :lol:

  34. 34 Joy Taylor Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 12:09 pm

    If she had been insured by even the to Health Insurance company in the uS she still would have ,had to pay $100,000.00 .She was born with the cyst..therefore that wiped out her insurance claim.Of course if you are being paid…she works paert-time as a public advocate against government run Health care in the United States..I guess you can say what the Republicans want you to say.

  35. 35 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 12:43 pm

    Joy – Exactly. As my friend RossK pointed out here, the cyst was an “embryological remnant”, which forms in utero. That means “pre-existing condition” and that means she would have been screwed.

    I don’t know if anyone’s found out for sure if this is a paid gig she’s got shilling for the insurance comps and the GOP, but the chances are good to excellent that she’s not doing it out of the goodness of her heart. Anyone who’d work towards denying 50 million people health care has no goodness left in their heart.

  36. 36 RossK Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    Forget linking back to me…..

    Joy’s site is the bee’s knees.

    (and it kicks ass – seriously)

    .

  37. 37 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 3:32 pm

    Ross, you’re right! What a cool website!

    Good work, Joy! And remember…

    Yesterday’s weirdness is tomorrow’s reason why.

    As a proud Canadian who lived in the US for a number of years. At the time, most Americans didn’t understand that we don’t have socialized medicine , as in the old USSR, but ‘socialized’ medical insurance. And stateside; the medical insurance companies are second only to the military industrial corporations when it comes to siphoning $$ out of consumer taxes and pockets at a mind-boggling rate.
    I’ve workrd in vancouver hospitals for the better part of the last thirty-five years, making me an expert in nothing. BUT , those fellow Canadians who fit the description of “prosperous”, have never wAited for urgent medical/surgical care. They simply went down to Rancho Mirage & booked into the Eisenhower Medical Center. That way, while recuperating , instead of stepping out of the Vancouver General for coffee at Denny’s on W. Broadway, they could dash across the road to the Springs for a few rounds of golf. Nothing wrong with that , but ……- an ‘embrological remnant’ can be anything from a cyst to a southern Republican. See also ‘hytadidiform mole’ and ‘boll weevil taxpayer who don’t need demonic science when there’s faith healers on every street corner’. And most of ‘em on probation!

  39. 39 JJ Friday, August 7, 2009 at 10:17 am

    Bart – Can’t say I disagree! Well (and humourously) put.

  40. 40 Warner Sunday, June 29, 2014 at 11:05 am

    I hardly comment, but i did some searching and wound up here Shona Holmes, Sex Advisor | unrepentant old hippie.
    And I actually do have some questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be simply me or does it look like some of the responses appear like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
    Would you list of every one of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
