A Dose of Buckley #51 – Gay Marriage (David Tyree)

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

I don’t really watch Football, so I was very unsurprised when I hadn’t heard of David Tyree before today. David Tyree played for the New York Giants, and won a Super Bowl with some catch that made CNN refer to him as a “hero”. Now, I’ll save the “how is someone a hero when all they do is play a stupid game?” rant for another day, because today, I’m ranting about David Tyree’s recent denouncement of gay marriage, saying that it will cause anarchy. As always, it’s good to see that religious people aren’t blowing things out of proportion… check out the rant below:

A Dose of Buckley #50 – Canada Post

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

So, Canada Post workers are threatening to walk out/strike/not go to work/whatever you want to call it, because they feel they’re not being overpaid enough. 7 weeks vacation time, pension, a great hourly rate for what amounts to walking around and putting things in boxes, that’s all just simply not good enough for them.

A Dose of Buckley #49 – Mark Zuckerberg

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 3, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

Mark Zuckerberg has taken to murdering animals in order to sustain his life. At least, that’s how the news is sensationalizing it. In other words, he’s doing what we should all be doing, if we weren’t a bunch of puss-cakes.

A Dose of Buckley 48 – Gas Prices

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

Gas prices have got completely out of hand… I filled my car up the other day at 137.7/litre (Americans: quit your whining, that works out to $5.21 a gallon, and you think your prices are high), meanwhile everything I read on the news is about oil prices going down based on lower demand. It doesn’t matter who’s to blame, the important question is, who can fix it? Certainly not me, and CERTAINLY not the people who try and create “Don’t Buy Gas Day” events on Facebook… but I know someone who might be able to help. Find out who by watching below:

For the 5th time in 11 years, Canada is going back to the polls for a Federal Election. If this seems a little excessive to you, it’s because it is. This week: A little primer on Canadian Politics, courtesy of your favourite vulgar professor, Buckley.

A Dose of Buckley 46 – Burqas in France

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

Recently, France outlawed covering your face in public. What makes this a real issue is that Muslim women who wear Burqas are breaking the law simply for practicing their religion and preserving their culture. Is France in the wrong? I don’t believe so… watch and find out why.

A Dose of Buckley 45 – Slutwalk

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2011 by adoseofbuckley

I feel like I haven’t REALLY offended anyone in some time now. Not that it’s necessarily my intention to do so, it’s more a byproduct of the way my mind works. Anyway, if I don’t this week, then it’ll only be because no one’s viewing this.

The Slutwalk took place this weekend in Toronto. What’s the “Slutwalk” you ask? Well, it’s a protest brought on by the whole York University thing, where a cop came in and gave a presentation on preventing sexual assault and said that you could do so by “not dressing like a slut”. Apparently this is the wrong attitude to have, because it blames the victim. I don’t feel it blames the victim any more than telling people to stay out of the African jungles if they want to avoid being eaten by lions. Sure they shouldn’t tell you where you can and can’t go, but it’s advice you can take or leave. Anyway, watch the video for my full rant:
