I know. It sounds funny to even suggest such a thing.

Heck, it's California. Who knows, they may have been so disconnected from pizza to have actually tried it.

Nah. I can somewhat understand the fish taco, since some Mexicans are well known for being fisherman, and some of Mexico is on the coast, so those people would eat what they have, even if it's not traditional, but as for the pizza, some things are just too weird for anyone to try.

We've been over this. "Pineapple" and "pizza" don't go together. That was my point. I was making an illustration of something ridiculous, not trying to invent a wacko food.

I'm serious. Sweet+salty foods are marvelous. You can continue to mock and show immaturity all you want, but I'm glad that people are willing to try new spins on old classics. Pizza would get boring very quickly if the only thing you could put on them was pepperoni.

These are not new taxes, legally you're supposed to be paying them already. All this law does is set up framework to make sure that tax cheats can't get out of paying their share.

Given the state of the CA economy, I'm surprised anyone here is upset that the gov't is trying to collect taxes that are legally due to it.

With all the money the state already takes from its residents, its hard to believe anyone thinks they need more.
