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.


Our Third War Front Pushes Across Our Northern Border

The war rages and the front continues to grow larger with the battles growing deadlier. After some 30 years and continued escalation it has been clear to most victory is unobtainable. The new front has reached Vancouver.

There have been 47 shootings, 19 of them fatal, this year alone, twice as many as five years ago. Peter Van Lorn, Canada’s minister for public safety, has declared Vancouver the country’s new gang capital.

The DC funding punk whores get wood every time more funds are thrown at this long lost cause it's the ganga ya know mon. The evil herb that leads people to the dark side. My ass!

In the end it may not be much but there is a discussion going on about this issue in Boulder with both sides present.
Student organizers have lined up local and national speakers from both sides of the issue, including liberals and conservatives, legalization advocates and law enforcement leaders for forums Saturday through Monday.


  1. I wonder how many more lives have been lost due to the "war on drugs" then have died from overdoses since said "war" was declared.

  2. For 3 yrs in the mid-90s Iworked in the high-end concrete forming business. The newest products were futuristic concrete blocks and
    (surprise!!) their biggest market (county,state and federal prisons) surprise!!! surprise!!! The concrete companies contributed many millions to mostly Repubs in the form of political donations to get this done Surprised?

  3. Con't.-- Don't be surprised that the war on drugs is fueled like all our wars by corporations buying off politicians to get the gov't to buy huge sums of their products and create demand. War, War on Drugs, Missle Systems, Prison Systems,Prison Building Systems. It's "pay to play" for the gov't. bribery system we democracy. Have a nice day!!

  4. You know I have written pretty extensively on this. It really has to be legalized. It would end so many problems senselessly outlawing it to protect alcohol has caused!

  5. Yessir, gangs are doing quite the brisk business in drugs.

    Check out this pic. It always amazes me that the best looking people get away with more shit. Maybe they had nothing to do with the murders, but it's true that better looking people get away with more shit, AND they make more money. Seriously, some of the most fucked up, useless bitches on the planet are pretty to look at.

  6. war on drugs, war on terror, war war war ---- i am starting to sound like scarlet o'hara

  7. War..the word itself gives me chills. The War on Drugs gives me a friggin migraine.
