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.


Sis Boom Bah

Here he is lighting the punks.

Chester goes on to say-
"Protecting those we are here to help nonetheless does require killing, capturing or turning the insurgents. We will not shrink from that."

Hell no there will be no shrinking not even a little bit. The fireworks will commence shortly.


  1. Yes it does seem that the fire works will commence shortly.
    I am seeing some chatter the the attack on Kandahar is getting all juiced up.
    This will be the pivot point for our Afghan folly.
    Stay tuned.
    Oh,and lets make sure that the zippers on the body bags are in order.
    Death and destruction will now be the call of the wild.
    For what?
    To keep the MIC, and our insane politicians happy.
    Fuck them on this 4th.
    Bring our troops home.

  2. I gotta do some lodging at the Rabbit Ears Motel!

  3. No one has got the balls to try and bring them home RZ. I think we're just seeing the beginning of some nasty shit. Let them have their country. Who the hell ever said it was our anyway. Need less to say I'm laying kinda low and not waving any flags today.

    That Fearguth has been an icon of this area for decades. Believe it or not the city almost had them take it down awhile back cuz it didn't conform to the new regs. Drive past every morning and finally took a minute and came away with that and I do like those colors.

  4. Correctomundo.
    We do not have the balls to leave.
    It would take political courage for us to leave. Political courage, and convictions is some thing we have lacked for a long time.

    Every Neon sign should be grandfathered and left alone.

  5. Something is very wrong. America with all its technology can't win a war against forces within a poor, primitive country like Afghanistan. Why?

    Some of you'll say it's because that's not our war . Well, that would not be correct. America has interests (military and economical) in all the regions of the world, and she has to protect her interests.

    Anyway,I've already said that; if the americans will leave Afghanistan,without a clear cut victory ,Al QAIDA people will go after them to America to start a terror war on american territory.

  6. DUTA:
    Your comment is parroting the Neocon, PNAC, Zionist agenda.
    You are sadly very misinformed.

  7. The only way I can think of to bring our people home is to enact the draft.
    Once everyone has to serve and I do mean everyone this time, the shit will hit the fan. The outrage of having to send my kid will be enough for these safe haven mini Generals to have a reality check.
    Old Men should have to do the fighting. That would last about a half day.....Yes I'm an Old Man..

  8. "We do not have the balls to leave.
    It would take political courage for us to leave. Political courage, and convictions is some thing we have lacked for a long time."

    that just about sums it up for me...

    a decade worth of flushing money, lives and opportunities down the toilet... idk if all that killing made any of us any safer... i doubt it ever does

    one struggle,
    --rev m

  9. Tell me again: why are we there???

  10. RZ is correct Duta and yea bring on the draft but that ain't going to happen now. Not with plenty of fodder lining up cuz they can't feed the kids and or there are no jobs.

    Stop the madness for damn sure as all the money and lives poured down this rat hole has been for naught.

    The only reason we were in danger is because the bush bastards said we were.

    Perpetual war is this country's mantra.
