This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.

It's No Different Than 70 Years Ago

WTF Is It Now gives a great example of this. It's propaganda pure and simple no more no less and it's not talked about enough. The Nazis were very successful with this technique as we all know.

It's been written here before that I believe key players in government have been threatened by the likes of those in this administration. I still believe that. Recently I equated the situation locally was similar to what had happened nationally one of the common denominators being the media which in this case is a newspaper. But what I want to get at is something else.

Maybe some of you have discussions with some of those on the other side but I do not partly because those situations do not occur and I guess I limit the chances of that happening. A conversation I had today with a friend is an example. Very simply friends who are visiting him are wing nuts. Poor guy and no matter what is said those on the other side never give an inch and are in lockstep with the talking points they hear on squawk boxes. On the other side I would not give an inch from my position from what I know and I know of no talking points at all that I could respond with.

So when situations like that arise I probably do what you do and present them with facts that are true. No Saddam was not responsible for 911 is an important fact known for a long long time even though for those that listen to media here the truth came a couple years late but it did come out. But yet something like 50% may be even more believe this shit to this day. In the end all your talking does not make a dent.

Locally it's identical. People believing for a fact things that have been disapproved a long time ago but continually tossed around as to the truth. And even when shown or told the real facts of these matters it makes no difference they still believe the falsehoods.

Brainwashing is another term and that is exactly what has been done and continues to be done to our society. When there is a concerted effort by government and the media to change the truth into something other on all sorts of issues and there are at least 50% of citizens who believe the lie the powers to be have been successful.

We are in a world of shit and this upcoming election is pivotal. It is a key moment in the history of this country and I fear the groundwork being laid puts the success rate of winning this election in severe jeopardy. Look the fuck out.

Then there's the religious brainwashing with the church Sarah Failin attends. This is just sick!
