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.


Using Kinetics To Defeat Them Talibans

Always the pet names when it comes to the never ending missions our military performs. The latest being and it's really fucking stupid but it gives them wood and camaraderie.

Operation Moshtarak (“Together”) will be by far the largest offensive since General Stanley McChrystal, the American commander of Nato forces in Afghanistan, instigated his counter-insurgency strategy, backed by President Barack Obama’s 30,000-troop “surge”.

Kinetics in this military inspired scenario means armed attacks of all things.

Special forces guys have been going in on assassination missions with the aim of decapitating the Taliban force,Military sources described the use of publicity as a psychological tactic to intimidate the Taliban into laying down their weapons or fleeing.

Just for a second ponder what is in red.

It is a toss up who has the higher level of stupidity. Palin or our military/leadership.


  1. If you see the movie, Inglorious Basterds, this is the same plan employed by the scalptakers. 24 worked for the Bushies' torture machine. Why not give it a try, it's not like their heads won't get them to the 70 virgins.

  2. Might as well tell them. When dealing with indigenous opponents, they usually know more about the operation than the frontline commanders.

  3. Unfortunately I am seeing a lot of BODY BAGS! ! !

    Check out my friends over here. They have a great take on what is going on over there.
