California was a Spanish colony for centuries before Anglos came. Not sure where you find humor in that.
Really, don't you see it? California is American, not Mexican anymore. That's the funny side, this State is getting back to its origins without the need of a war. Mexicans just need to migrate illegaly and that's it, they already conquer an American State.
i love Mexico. I’ve been to Guadalajara, Chitzen Itza, Puerto Vallarta, Baja, Juarez. Seems like you are just pretending at provocation.
I really don't care what you love or not. I can also say I despise Mexico, but that's not the point.
thats not at all clear to me. Here in Denver, street vendors are seen as a cheap venue for experimental entrepreneurship. They facilitate all kinds temporary events. We have a number of peak seasons here - rodeo, skiing, beer fest, weed fest which were really difficult to staff and produce consistently. Street vendors suddenly offer all kinds of services, mostly food that make these event consistently fun.
I suppose scoflawry of taxes is probably likelier given the transient nature of street markets but really, how can you tell? Tax dodging is extremely common in the volatile restaurant industry (hell I once helped smuggle a genuine Picasso out of a very fancy restaurant that had been shut down by the taxman that morning). I’m sure you’re right insofar as some tax dodging is very likely but I haven’t heard govts complain much. Perhaps it’s all still thought of as small potatoes or gravy.
I think you've got to have a long talk with your folks living in California. In DDO I've read a lot of complaints from people who visited California about what it's going on there.
I also watched some videos in youtube of people who complain about street vendoring and how it's changing the urban landscape. I mean, I understand people need the money in order to make a living, but there are laws to comply. Otherwise, the country would slide into anarchy.
