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.


Will Arkysaw Allow Non-Believers To Hold Office?

Don't count on it.

Section I. Article 19: of the State of Arkansaw Constitution

§ 1. Atheists disqualified from holding office or testifying as witness.
No person who denies the being of a God shall hold any office in the civil departments of this State, nor be competent to testify as a witness in any Court.

A bill to change that Bill HJR1009 was submitted but no action is being taken.

Say a bunch of Christians got slaughtered and the only witness to the crime that can put the killer away is an atheist but they cannot testify and the killer walks. Watch how fast the christian crazy's change the law then.


  1. You know, As strange as that sounds, I have never given it any thought but are there any open atheists?

  2. I doubt I would testify against anybody who slaughtered a bunch of Arkansaw Christians. Does that make me an atheist?

  3. but are there any open atheists?

    We're all closed until after the Rapture. We apologize for any inconvenience.

  4. Where's the Supreme Court and the ACLU?

    Artilce VI of the U.S. Constitution

    The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

    This is clearly unconstitutional.

  5. Trouble is, courts sometimes take that as only applying to federal positions. There are some precedents that say this might apply to the states as well, but the lawyers in other discussions I've seen seem unsure about how true that is.

    It really should apply to all government positions in this country, and I devoutly hope (pun intended) that some day it does.
