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.


Just One Of Dozens Not To Escalate

Ill-disciplined private security guards escorting supply convoys to coalition bases are wreaking havoc. The security guards are responsible for killing and wounding more than 30 innocent civilians during the past four years in Maywand district alone.

We're still "bringing it on" in our own special way with armed civilian thugs killing innocents in our name. Please President Obama say no to war tonight.


  1. No chance, bro.

    The Owners need boots on the ground in Central Asia, to play the "Great Game."

    Obama TOLD us he was gonna amp up the war in Afpakistan, during the campaign (some of us repeated this frequently). Mr. Trucknutz, he's gonna "finish the job."

  2. I know Woody -just had to say that.

  3. Obviously The White House and the Pentagon are not Black Sabbath fans because we are going to get an extended dose of war. To keep us all safe of course.

  4. Obama was going to move troops from Iraq to the Stans. Are there drawdowns in Iraq? I'm tired of guessing under which shell the pea is. In point of fact there is no pea and the thing amounts to a shell game: a very expensive and deadly experiment in the old "we must destroy the village in order to save it". Obama must end something and quick or this thing called nation building will be the end of this country.

  5. We're all not looking forward to this, eh? But, I will do my duty, be respectful and listen to the man I voted for. After all, he did say continuously during his campaign, that he would escalate in Afghanistan.

  6. One of Karzai's family Lords the road they have to travel on and they use our taxes to buy off Taliban and others not to attack them.

  7. I changed my mind guys-I'm not going to listen at least not live-maybe later. I'm sick of hearing war talk for years and years on end just plain fucking sick of it..

  8. Ret. Gen. Barry MaCaffrey, said after the speech, " we must bring a chance for stability and hope for these poor, oppressed people." You sack of shit! What are we going to do for our own poor, oppressed Americans? 1 in four children eligible for Food Stamps, 1 in 8 adults, too. Another generation of permanent underclass children attending inferior schools, eating poorly with bad medical services. It is time to begin withholding the % of our taxes paid for the Dept. of Defense until we can unwind this crazy killing machine. The Repugs want to bankrupt the gov't. and I say bring it on! We'll start with the fucking DOD, NSA, CIA and the rest of the murderers. Not in my name.

  9. Clicking on the link brings up a blank page now.

    I've resigned myself to the fact that "our representatives" have no power that the wealthy do not bestow upon them.

    In Afghanistan that means the global gas and oil, and mining companies battling it out for a piece of the pie.

    Tha Afghans don't matter, our soldiers don't matter.


    Welcome to Pipelineistan

  10. And we don't matter-not even a little bit Nunya.

    Can't remember what that story was about but whatever it was it's gone.

    I still say many of those who make the votes who have the power to stop this have been threatened with the worst possible scenarios and that includes Obama!
