Save The Taco Trucks!!!

Carneasada This one is for the West Coast…it seems like the local bobos politicians in Los Angeles California have nothing better to do than to launch an initiative to rid the city of TACO TRUCKS…not crack houses, not vagrants, not gangs…god forbid they tackle the homeless crisis in Los Angeles. Nope they really want to get rid of local, hardworking, tax payers that actually add to the cultural ambiance of the city.

Well the community is not standing down…they have started a website called SAVE OUR TACO TRUCKS!

You can actually sign a petition to save the Taco Trucks of Los Angeles


Here is what some additional info about the initiative.

“Led by District 1 County Supervisor Gloria Molina, the L.A. Board of Supervisors has passed new restrictions that will effectively eliminate taco trucks from our streets. Under Supervisor Molina’s new rules, taco trucks will have to change location every hour, or face a misdemeanor charge carrying a $1000 fine and/or jail. Yes, jail.

Taco Trucks are a special facet of Los Angeles, and something we don’t want to lose. Though this ordinance currently affects just unincorporated parts of L.A., that’s 65% of the County. And of course it opens up the doors for legislation closer to home too.

Let’s send Gloria Molina and the L.A. Board of Supervisors a message that we cherish our local vendors and don’t want to see them move away. This new law needs to be repealed!”

Well…I wish I had known this before the California Primaries, I would have loved to see where Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton stood on an issue such as this.

I just hope the NY polititians do not decide to out law the Piragueros
