Taco mayor re-elected

The opposition demanded a recount, and the courts shot him down.

So East Haven, CT gets more of this guy:





Did I mention my folks went to school with him? My father defended his comments, and I point blank asked him "Would YOU have said something like that?"

He just rolls his eyes and mutters "That's just how he is".


I dunno.. He must be doing something right. Some reason people keep voting him in over and over again.

I'm sorry but that is just f*cking hilarious. It's so absurd it becomes funny.

Indeed. 3 times now.

Understandable:

1. He's probably good at his job.
2. People are probably starting to weary of people trying to ruin others over a stray comment.
3. He apologized for the remark.

I thought his answer was good. no expression


But it was not a political answer. He should have said:


"I'll be directly investing my money into local latino businesses because I want to see our very small minority populations thrive. I enjoy the American Dream just as much as the next American so shouldn't people like you and I, who are not first or second generation immigrants, being doing our part to be involved with everyone in our community? My money votes for everyone in our community, which includes our local minorities. They voted for me so I vote for them.

As the mayor, I represent everyone. That's why I do this job and I love it."

The guy was tired and hungry and was thinking of food

An authentic latin taco

is a high fat, high carb, high fiber, high protein, high flavor, high nutrition food

One of the best things for stress is fat+carbs+protein

For women chocolate, ice cream
For men - guys go for stuff with a higher hit of tryptophan -pizza with its higher milk solid content + bacon + some type of meat, will have more protein than say... ice cream or milk chocolate.

I've never seen anyone with falling blood sugar levels (some one who is tired / tiring) crave a low carb, low fat snack or talking or thinking out loud about having something like a salad (or something that goes in a salad) - The human body (and mind) just doesn't work like that.

Personally When I'm really hungry and have had a long day I want a kebob and a high sugar - none of that diet stuff - soda and some fries - and maybe a burger - but it has to be a large chicken filet burger

thats how I like my fat+sugar+protein

other times this old classic works for me:

peanut butter+jelly on bread+ full fat milk

trptophan-packed with polyunsaturated fat + carbs, glucose, fructose + lactose, saturated fat and more tryptophan

If you see / or hear a person taling about a food - when no one's asked them to talk about food - and that food is a high fat, high carb, high protein food, that person is hungry and that person is under stress.

This is so F-K-N stupid, grats.

A small police force doesn't have a minority represented on the police force in a live interview "whats your answer, gotcha."

Shit this guy should institute taco mondays and fridays to be able to retract his taco statement and be praised a hero.... eek!

This is an oddly satisfying read.


It sounds JUST zany AND informative enough that it works if you're being completely serious OR partly serious and gently poking fun.

Kudos.

I looked him up.
The "taco" comment was made by Maturo five years ago, in 2012.

His response to some follow-up hazing was better than Doc Savage probably knows:


Story highlights
Some 500 tacos were delivered to office of the East Haven mayor
It was part of a text-for-taco campaign in response to the mayor's comments Tuesday
Mayor had remarked he would support Latinos by eating tacos
Those tacos and more are expected to be given to local food-assistance outlets
Two days after a Connecticut mayor delivered an errant comment about eating tacos to support East Haven Latinos, some of whom are the alleged victims of police mistreatment, Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. apparently got his wish.
Some 500 tacos were delivered to his office Thursday after a Latino activist group called Junta for Progressive Action launched a text-for-tacos campaign to draw attention to the comment, which Maturo later apologized for.
In the interview Tuesday, a local reporter pointed out that there were no Latino officers on East Haven's police force.
"And your point being?" Maturo responded.
Asked what he planned to do for the Latino community in light of the discrimination allegations, the mayor said, "I might have tacos when I go home, I'm not quite sure yet."
That set off the activist group, a local branch of the Reform Immigration for America organization, which said that anytime someone texts the word "taco" to 69866, it will deliver a taco to the mayor on their behalf.
They've received more than 2,600 texts, the group said in a statement Thursday.
"The mayor has shown a total lack of respect for the constituents he has been sworn to serve to the best of his ability," said Henry Fernandez, spokesman for the group.
Maturo twice apologized for the comments, saying his words were largely a product of stress.
Still, some 500 tacos were placed inside his office; the rest are already being rerouted to local food-assistance outlets.
"The town of East Haven has received an abundance of tacos as a result of the campaign initiated by the group 'Reform Immigration for America,'" said Maturo in a statement. "Recognizing that there are many in need in our state, we have arranged for all of the tacos to be donated to local soup kitchens and pantries, including the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen in New Haven."

Isn't that the dipshit that knelt during our anthem, but stood for Mexico's? Lol.

Well...this sounds like a nice, chill, guy that I'd like to hang out with. All of those foods are awesome. And every Mexican I've hung out with or call amigo is very adamant about having their abuela o mama make some of those for me (don't forget "elotes": a snack that's actually pretty damn good).

It's sooooo offensive to eat the traditional foods the Mexicans offer you or even demand you eat. How dare I be racist by respecting their demands to eat their foods.


Fat Man Story Time:
Best damn enchiladas I ever had was from the mother of a Mexican gal I dated for about a month in November December 16. Very spicy. Not like any enchiladas in the US. She made 50-50: chicken and cheese. Because I said I like both kinds. I ate so many. So so so many. I was extremely full. It was very spicy but I ate it anyway. I asked her why it was so delicious and so different and she said it was because the cheese is made locally (it was) and the peppers are indigenous (they were) and are perfect for enchiladas. I forgot the name of the pepper. But I tried so hard to remember to see if I can find it when I got back to the US. The cheese could be substituted for goat cheese, in the US: similar taste and texture. Honestly, I considered staying with that Mexican gal specifically because of the enchiladas. I considered making that relationship work just because of the food her mom mad. That makes me a fat person.

You do know that I wasn't upset about it right? Just pointing out the hypocrisy of outrage for one statement as opposed to the other.

Your opinion on those words, which you did not state in the content I quoted, are irrelevant to the words I wrote in response to the quote.
