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.

Wouldn't Put It Past Him

Blackwater's religiously insane founder Erik Prince has been implicated by former employees in that he himself killed individuals who were cooperating with the investigation by the Government into his company. Link

People like Erik Prince are some of the most dangerous. Money, God, guns and belief that you can do no wrong in a quest to make the world your special kind of place regardless of what others might think. You see I'm me and your you and you don't count not even a little fucking bit.

Blackwater changed its name to something else but it will always be Blackwater to me. I can't imagine this man knocking off people himself but chances are really good people were killed over this. Nothing about Blackwater has ever gotten legs from Big Whore Media so I doubt this will either.

This is a piece by Jeremy Scahill but the links do not work anywhere at this time.

  1. These guys at Blackwater make the Sopranos look like real pikers. Death threats to Obama are 400% higher than when George of the Bungle was wrecking things: that about says it all. Onward Christian Soldiers; you freaking nutcases!!!

  2. We have absolutely no control over these slugs or anyone else for that matter. If it's true nothing will happen as usual.

  3. Keith Olbermann interviewed Scahill about this last night, so I posted it on Sirens Chronicles. I hope to hell that bible-thumping bag o batshit gets what he deserves. Erik Prince is a hater and the world needs less of his ilk.

  5. I plan on watching that Dusty and you know guys the truth of the matter is not much has changed since the election. These people who are in charge behind the scenes continue to do what ever they want because they know that nothing will happen to them.

    If Prince did do this he knows for a fact he will get away with it and maybe that is the reason he killed so he could experience the feeling without fear of paying a price for being such a slug against democracy and humanity.
