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.


Taliban Kicking Our Ass

This asshole is complaining how fucking hard it is fighting dem Talibans. They want increases in the amount of our troops and the Afghan forces. Fire this complainer and get someone in there who can find that sonofabitch Bin Laden so we can get the fuck out of there.

As a Realist I understand that is not going to happen any time soon. My country loves war and death far too much to give it up easily.

The Taliban have advanced out of traditional strongholds in Afghanistan's south and east, gaining the upper hand as they moved into the north and west. McChrystal told The Wall Street Journal newspaper in an interview in Kabul. "We've got to stop their momentum, stop their initiative. It's hard work."


  1. There's that "It's hard work" thingy again. Yes folks, when the natives find out you're trying to kill them and control their land and natural resources for the multi-nat'l oil companies, they tend not to roll over and take one for the team. Raping, pillaging and plundering in the name of the Lord has always been hard work: if you can find an American Indian activist that's not in jail just ask him and he'll tell ya. Catching Bin Laden isn't the priority; securing safe passage for that oil in BushChenistan is the goal. If our sons and their wives and children die console yourself with the fact they did "the hard work" so our multi-nat'ls make a "good return on investment" there. Money makes the world go around, the world go around, the world go around....

  2. Man I said it yesterday in regard to the killing Baitullah Mehsud and two of the commanders killing each other as they fought for control. 3 down and 500 million volunteers to go. They will not defeat this for many years if ever.

  3. The killing grounds of Afghanistan have been profitable for undertakers for generations, the Afghans have been used and abused by foreign powers many times, and in turn they use and abuse foreign powers. Its a mutual kill-fest.

  4. The Congress will vote " no war for you" when the next apprpriation bill come up for a vote.

    No more billions for war.

    The war folks bellies are full of cash and sated for another 20 years.

  5. You boys are indeed sharp!! Thanks.
