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.


Another Reason He's Gotta Go

It's all the progress McFuckstal has made in Afghanistan why he needs to stay according to-

Give all of us a break here and somebody somewhere quit writing this shit for a while.

If this man stays in uniform it will just be another example of just how screwed we really are. 


  1. We wouldn't want to disrupt progress in the war to make us poor, would we?

  2. Bust him to a buck private and send him back. I can dream can't I?

  3. Barry, 1, Stanley, 0.

  4. Well boys Barry listened to me but put a shitty batter in to replace him. Will he fall asleep here as well. Makes squat bit of difference.

  5. Did Obama pick Patreus?
    Or did Patreus, Gates, and Shillary pick Patreus?

  6. P.S. Nice pic today.

  7. Today Obama did good.
    This asshole General should be in jail. He's the douchebag who lied to us all about Pat Tillman and got away with it.

  8. RE: 'Today Obama did good.'
    What good might that be?
    Mc Chrystal is a tool in the tool box. He is interchangeable and replaceable.
    The strategic policy of [Endless wars with out borders] continues.
    This was a gift to the war mongers. Obama can now not refute Patreus. or the political chicken-hawks will have a field day with him. This was a pure political decision on his part.
    He caved in once more to the far right war mongers with This Patreus move. Patreus and Gates should have been fired long ago. It is Obama's belief that this war can be won that is the ultimate failure.

  9. Hey! I didn't like the nigger anyways and we didn't have much in common, him being a nigger and all and this way I can walk away from my role in Afghanistan with my head held high.

    When you are in a hole, stop diggin'!

  10. This is something but not all that much in the big scheme of things.

    The war remains fully intact and funded and the gusher is gushing more.

    What we really got here is your basic squat.

    That picture is interesting because of the colors you don't see here. On the Colorado River in late afternoon with rain,

    Thanks jeg.
