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.

Ramping Up To Steal The Internets

Terrorists and the Web will be part of the equation Comsuck will employ during the upcoming quest to become the biggest.

Net Neutrality hasn't been seen anywhere the last couple months and don't hear shit from the FCC.

While campaigning Obama said he was supportive of the war in Afghanistan and stuck to his word.

He also said media giants becoming larger was a negative and that diversity in media was important or something to that effect.

Will he stick to his words on this issue?

You think health care is huge. It's peanuts compared to who controls the internets and they want it. This upcoming fight will be for all the marbles - every last one of them.


"Online recruiting has exponentially increased, with Facebook, YouTube and the increasing sophistication of people online," a high-ranking Department of Homeland Security official said Saturday on the condition of anonymity. But criminal investigators said the explosion of online communication made it extraordinarily difficult to monitor, and they indicated that their tracking abilities were limited by constitutional and privacy considerations. "Other countries may have different capabilities, and those are capabilities we don't have," said one federal law enforcement official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the issue.

  3. "Not authorized to speak publicly", my ass. This is most likely a deliberate leak by an Administration official. Any ordinary worker who spoke out would be fired or worse if he spoke out like that and was discovered.

    We have most of the telecommunications of the world going through our country, and the NSA can monitor damn near all of it now. That we can't do what other countries can is at best irrelevant, and at most a crock.

  4. The FCC can except 10,000,000,000,000, or so, e-mails if net neutrality is threatened. Well that's what should happen.

  5. We have a facade of health care reform that is going to cost us 1 or 2 trillion. Other than that and signing us up to be a card carrying member of Afghanistan's graveyard of Nations he has accomplished nothing of consequence.

  6. Expendiency is the quickest course to Fascism. Congressional deliberation after a lengthy public meeting process is the slowest. America's politicians love speed when they don't want us to know their dirty dealings. I'm thinking the quick and dirty fix is in; civil liberties and all the rest be damned.

  7. This is serious shit friends and we haven't seen nothing yet. Most of the time I have a problem with unidentified sources Cujo but not this time because this was the truth. Several million helped before Holte and the way things have been going no matter how many protest I really believe the corporations will not be denied.

    Thanks for stopping by. OF
