Picture An America With #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner

Would taco trucks on (almost) every street corner really be a nightmare scenario?
What kind of foodie trucks would you want to see on every street corner?

Shrimp trucks like the ones on the North Shore of Oahu.

One problem we don't have in New England is keeping those damn Hawaiians out.

It's a funny concept, and I appreciate the effect of mocking the original statement that Hispanic supporter made - it richly deserves mocking.

I was just a little surprised and disappointed that people went straight to the mocking without anyone really pointing out (for the low information crowd if no one else) why that statement coming from that person in support of that candidate was so despicable, embarrassing and insulting.

It was exactly as if a woman supporter of Trump had said "If we're not careful, they'll be selling tampons at every check-out counter", or a black saying "If we're not careful there'll be a watermelon stand on every corner".

I laughed too. But first it made me sad.

@snood,
They let us Micks into Boston (albeit reluctantly) and now look at all the bars!

@George,
I joke about it, but I've seen enough of us turn on our own.

We have lots of taco trucks and taquerias in my area. The food is always wonderful, in my experience. Screw the wall people.

@tsarstepan,
Sure beats the hotdog venders we have in our city.

I love tacos and homemade watermelons salsa! I have tacos or taco salad at least once a month and I am a white guy from Maine. I have been eating tacos since I was at least 12 years old.

It is racist to assume all Mexicans only eat tacos.

Degrading and insulting of their sense of culture.

I like fried chicken, have terrible cravings for it often late at night does that mean I am black?

Enough of this hateful crap.

Maybe that Braindead series is more true than we realise? It's great by the way.

If a British politician said "we'll have Doner kebab trucks on every corner" the populace would cheer and demand to know how soon they could be rolled out.

I hadn't see Tsar's thread when I posted about a wonderful column about this Taco Truck Trump and the other fellow scenario by the LA Times' Steve Lopez..

@George,
We were lace curtain for a while, my Boston grandfather being a tailor and the town (Watertown) drunk, thus my mother a life long teetotaler..
At this late date, it occurs to me to wonder about his stitching..

I used to work with a Mexican here on a green card. He hated tacos. I on the other hand love them.

Whichever fast food company declares Election Day Taco Tuesday and offers some discount for people wearing an "I Voted" sticker will win the Internet.

@snood,
I think that is partially the point of the mocking, to point out its absurdity. His attempt to throw his culture under the bus to support Trump was inept simply on the basis of his picking a fight with tacos. Tacos are awesome!

I'd rather the space saving exclusivity and runaway success of a sandwich island in the middle of every intersection.
