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.


Gates Says This And Then Says That About Afghanistan And None Of It Is Any Good

The only thing good that could ever be said about about Iraq and Afghanistan is that we are leaving completely, entirely and for fucking ever. But the reality is different and we are all aware of that.

I'm not going to even link to this article because it's too depressing but will include a few tidbits from war pig Defense Secretary Gates.

The Pentagon's chief said Thursday he could send more U.S. troops to Afghanistan this year than he'd initially expected and is considering increasing the number of soldiers in the Army.

That's real special since they've already increased the size of our military once this year.

Gates and other military leaders have said they are reluctant to send many more U.S. troops to Afghanistan, because of concerns that a large American footprint there could appear to Afghans as an occupying force.

Do you fucking think?

"We are very mindful of stress on the force," he said.

No shit Cisco. Our whole fucking country is under stress because of this shit and we are just beginning to enter a new era of death and mayhem in our second war front called Afghanistan and in recent days we have seen it ain't going to be pretty.

Thanks a lot you war loving fucking Democrats elected to do the opposite of what you've done since '06.

Dirty rotten bastards!


  1. To the Dems in D.C. it is easier to keep up the war and death machine than to pass the peace and life affirming programs called health care. It is easier to borrow from their children than to cut defense prgrams or tax the rich proportionally. It is gone beyond the Orwellian nightmare of 1984 and entered the realm of Corporate Totalitarianism. Don't look back but we are the new Soviet Union with better TVs and plumbing. Holy fucking shit!!!

  2. Endless war. Can't these fuckers read Sun Tzu? "No country has ever benefited from a prolonged war."
