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.


State Repug Whores Reveal Plan

Four pages worth just enough to wipe ones ass with. Who cares except the insane.

Of course the guv is also blamed for all the job losses in the state and what's even better is their four page plan is called the Platform for Prosperity. Part of that is a series of health care propositions including allowing coverage to follow workers from job to job, allowing patients to purchase insurance across state lines and opposing any effort to bring single-payer health care to the state. Imagine fucking that!

Across our country as whores line up to be elected in 2010 we will see shit never seen before -stuff that will make '08 small potatoes. These dregs are not going to be denied and when you lie cheat and steal it makes it oh so much easier. LTFO!

4* and hope it's warmer where you're at.


  1. I'm guessing that "Prosperity" tag signals a magical evangelical origin?

    Thanks for this, buddy!


    Brrr. Wrap up!

  2. Does that "the important thing is that Coloradans agree with us" mean that real people of America and Colorado agree? Real people like that Wolf character in Wheatridge? Or other types of real people? Ya know, wealthy white evangelical real Coloradans? BTW, OTC- What is the minimum wage in your fair state? Do you have a Living Wage Index? Are there strong unionizing efforts going on throughout the state? These are issues and movements that get out the votes of other types of real Americans. P.S. Scott McGinnis has been an asshole for 30 years. Just saying.

  3. I think you're absolutely correct about 2010 and beyond. I saw that crazy fuckin' priest on TV with altarboy Matthews. The people who want a theocratic based country are now winning the battles. They have a captive audience, they threaten their followers with ostracism and worse if they don't tow the partyline, they have money and tax exempt status. What a deal! Never forget the Catholic pope was a friend of Mussolini and Hitler and has always sided with the rich and powerful over their sheep. Once they were Jew killers and now they've turned the guns on humanists and atheists. Obama has proven to be a huge dissapointment. He is the kinder, tactful spokesman for America's "shock doctrine". We are undergoing the first phases of the treatment/cure and endless war overseas and repression at home will be the soup d'jour. It soon will be OK for the church/state to rule without interference from the state. With their indoctrination schools funded with our dollars it has begun in earnest. They side with Evangelicals on our foreign policy towards Isreal and thus ensure a Middle Eastern war much larger in size than we have now. The Catholic hierarchy in America a very sick puppies and we'll all suffer for it.

  4. Fly, you're treading on dangerous ground. Prostitutes will sue you for defamation of character, because you compared them to Repuglicans. ;-)

  5. The Catholic hierarchy in America a very sick puppies and we'll all suffer for it.

    I have argued forEVER that Catholic priests should be /required/ to register as agents of a foreign power.

  6. Tom, if you answered before, forgive me for missing it...

    Did you stop at Bandalier on the way home from here? It's one of my absolutely favorite places...you can still feel the life there...

  7. oh the 2010 campaign is gonna be ugly
