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.


I Give-You Win-Now Give It Back

I said I was going to listen and continue to hope your message was going to be one of withdrawal. Pipe dream I know but for the pessimist in me not bad making it this far.

I give because you're going to do it and you win this against our wishes.

A while back before it was publicly a sure thing I said that if there was an escalation in Afghanistan OTC would call for you to return the Nobel Peace Prize.

I understand your comments of support for the struggle in that country during the campaign.

Never the less given the situation of our country and the difficulties we face here for years there was a distinct choice for you.

You have chosen more war for you,me and our country.

Without question with this action you have become a war president.

War is not peace and you are no longer deserving of it I am so sorry to say.

Give it back and I'm being as respectful as I can here because you do deserve that unlike the president before you.!


  1. He should but he won't. He's just a Republican on the down low.

  2. backstory.

    newclear warheads.

    there is more going on than meets your eyes.

    I don't like the reality that is, but I understand his motivation.

    It's a big world and we need to think big.

    war is hell and think about what would have been Barack's reaction to 9/11. Oh? maybe it would not have happened? Me thinks so...

  3. Democrats proved yet again the are just another war party. Just wondering: Is there a Peace Party? After our genocide of Native Peoples did everyone figure out that if you're an American you need a gun or three or ten.

  4. A suggestion for what is almost certainly a futile gesture:
    copy/paste this post & send to

    ... or print it, and send it snailmail to
    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
    Washington, DC 20500

    Yes - more than likely futile... but maybe Obama hasn't heard this!

  5. It pisses off millions of voters Obama..millions of us.

    Beware of the angry voter.

  6. I disagree with the policy, but do not yet reject the man.

  7. The man is only doing what he's told.
