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.


Repeal Of The Fairness Doctrine Has All Ready Passed In The Senate

Tacked onto the DC voting rights bill at the very end as usual the "Broadcaster Freedom Act" (S. 34) passed overwhelmingly in the senate and is heading to the house.

The amendment, sponsored by Senate Republican Steering Committee Chairman Jim DeMint (S.C.) and Senate Republican Conference Vice Chairman John Thune (S.D.), would block the FCC from reviving equal-time requirements by enacting the Broadcaster Freedom Act.

You can take action here.

The wingers fear this with their lives. I do not want to see this ended and if reinstated it is the only way we have a chance to rebut the lies in media. The article implies it won't pass in the house but the fact it's part of this bill and the dims have no balls I don't trust them for a second.


  1. Fucking conservatard bastards will do anything to keep their messages full of lies as the only ones the public will be able to hear over the airwaves.

  2. There never was ANY possibility that it would or could be reinstituted.

    Media consolidation sealed the deal.

    The conditions under which it was possible to install it in the first place have been 180 degrees different since Clenis signed the new Communications Act of 1996.

    So the charade in the Senate was all kabuki...

  3. Thanks for not telling me that I can't spell you two.

  4. Thanks for not telling us that we're blind.

    I didn't even notice til you said somethin'.

  5. done--thanks for posting the link!

  6. The Real Problem with CNBC

    ...That’s not the problem with CNBC. The real problem is their reporting — or lack thereof. The CNBC reporters and anchors make the Bush press corps look like draconian inquisitors. They are obsessed with access. This is a problem with all of the media, and something Jon Stewart points out all the time. But it is particularly acute at CNBC (and all other business news channels)....
    ...CNBC never did any exposés about the enormous risks these financial companies took. They never exposed the insanity of the derivatives market. And they never told their audience that the executives of these companies have been robbing their shareholders blind. Because they didn’t see that as their job. They saw their job as doing whatever it took to keep Wall Street happy and playing ball with them....

  7. Done. Thanks for the post.

  8. It drives me crazy that they can just write shit in when they sign. I don't get it?

    If they can do that and it is written in then before signing the President should have the right to cross it out!
    Why not? Sounds like a cop out to me!
