During this term as Rexdale County Executive, Jerry Bucklin took
a 75% pay raise. He is also the only elected official in the history of the
county to use your tax dollars to purchase and feed an Amur leopard cub.
Lets look at the record.
In just four years, Jerry Bucklin increased your property taxes,
garbage and sewer rates, and dog license fees. It now costs you an extra 45%
every year to share your home with mans best friend. And what about
people who really love dogspeople like me who might have anywhere from
ten to thirty Pit Bulls and/or Rottweilers dispersed around their property.
Imagine what this new fee is costing us.
Why does Jerry Bucklin hate dog owners? Because Jerry Bucklin
hates dogs. Ever since his leopard cub had that altercation with my Rott,
Gnarly, in Gorman Park (an altercation in which Gnarly clearly proved himself
the superior animal) Jerry Bucklin has had it in for dogs.
While the law-abiding, canine-loving citizens of Rexdale are
drowning in new taxes and license fees, Jerry Bucklin is kicking back with his
illegal leopard cub and enjoying a massive raise. And did he stop there? Oh no,
not Jerry. Not when he still had plenty of your hard-earned tax dollars to
spend on an orangutan. Thats right. Jerry Bucklin had an endangered
Sumatran orangutan shipped all the way from Indonesia because his Amur leopard
cub was feeling lonely. Do you know how much it costs to import an
orangutan? Neither do I. Why? Because Im a regular guya dog guy. I
dont collect illicit exotic animals. Also, Im not crazy. Unlike
Jerry Bucklin, who is all kinds of crazy.
Just look at whats happened to our streets over the last
four years. They havent been this bad since the county was founded.
Im talking about the days of horses and buggies and trench sewers. I
would rather trudge through the rutted, dung-filled thoroughfares of Victorian
Rexdale than drive my Humvee on Elm Street today. And this is a
military-approved armored vehicle, rated to absorb a mid-range IED explosion! I
could safely cruise the streets of Kabul with a George Bush bumper sticker, but
would I drive over a Rexdale pothole? No way! Theyre so deep, I looked
down one and saw a Chinaman. I always knew Jerry Bucklin was a communist, but
this is ridiculous!
So whos in charge of the streets under Chairman
Bucklins regime? His brother-in-law, thats who. The same
brother-in-law who was a person of interest in the 2010 underage foot-fetishism
sting. This bona fide pervert is being paid $198,000 a year (out of your tax
dollars!) to sit on his rump and watch videos of little girls feet while
our streets go to utter hell. Thanks, Jerry Bucklin.
I know what some of you are thinking. What about your
brother-in-law, Bob? Wasnt he apprehended, in a state of undress, outside
an elderly womans window back in 06? Didnt the papers refer
to him as The Pear Street Peeper? Maybe so. But my sister is
seriously considering a divorce, and, unlike Jerry Bucklin, I currently have no
plans of appointing my brother-in-law to a government position.
And what about real crime? Im not saying window peeping is
okay, but compared to whats going on in Rexdale these days, its
pretty minor stuff. Since Jerry Bucklin eliminated 2 police officers and 5
neighborhood watch programs, the number of burglaries in the county has
increased by over 1200%! (Source, a cop). We might as well be living in South
Africa. Because of Jerry Bucklin Im looking out my kitchen window at a
ten-foot-high brick wall topped with prison-grade razor wire. I cant even
let my Pit Bulls off their chains anymore because of all the landmines and
spring-guns I had to install in the yard. Nice job, Jerry. Way to put taxpayers
Sort of makes you wonder what Jerry Bucklin has planned for his
next term. I cant guarantee you hell give himself another raise,
but I can tell you that orangutans are expensive. Jerry Bucklin spends more on
a one-month supply of monkey diapers than most of us do in a year at the
grocery store. Is that where you want your taxes going? Over to Jerry
Bucklins mansion to keep his orangutan in fresh nappies?
I didnt think so.
Come Election Day, remember the pay raise, the Amur leopard cub,
the orangutan, the dog-hating, the potholes, the communism, the sicko
brother-in-law, the rampant crime, the monkey diapersand elect Bob
Benton, the sane alternative.
