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.

Can You Imagine

Can you imagine a bomb going off in this country killing 60 and wounding 125? I know about 911 and don't need to be told.

Can you imagine the outcry to do something-to bring somebody or some thing to justice-to pass laws or just make someone pay. The whole country  would go bat shit crazy once again.

But this is a common occurrence in Iraq and just how many friends are we making there.

Make no mistake about it these deaths and all of the others blood spilt is on Bush and Cheney's hands! Every one of them along with every Neo Slug there ever was.

Imagine for once what it would be like if there was accountability entered into this equation.

Killer bastards they all are!

  1. Now now..... Jesus done told the moronic monkey that he had to go get Saddam, and by gum that's just what he did!

    What a pity that the brave, smart man couldn't find the time to go win Vietnam for us.

  3. No one will be held accountable for these war crimes. Least of all the W/Cheney cabal. Look at Falluja. We must have dropped some nasty shit over there. It will take decades for this to be cleaned up. The civilians will suffer an eternity. Look at the children that are being born. This was our doing, not theirs.

  5. "Everything done here is according to U.S. standard."
    "We have nothing to hide."
    Oh good. I was worried there for a minute.

  6. This is why we're doomed.Dying empires are almost always brutal-and shortlived.

    We desperately needed to restore the notion of justice, and we didn't do it. As a result, millions of us are now wondering just what it is that's worth fighting for.

  7. i have to say,... BY FAR the most disappointing thing about the Obama administration was the de facto pardon of the Bushevick crowd... what a poor example for history

    on the other hand, reading these comments is like a breath of fresh air... good stuff, one fly...

  8. And not even a harsh word of any kind Rev from our side. Made a comment about that pig sheriff down in Arizona and how he does the things he does just like the bushes because he knows nothing is going to happen top him. Only a very few on the left go there but it's the fucking reality of this shit. That comment as like most of the time does not even merit a response from our side not even a kiss mu ass.

    They knew it back then just like the powerful know it now.

    Mustn't forget part of that equation with Bama is that he was told to stay away or the or else card was going to be played on someone close to him.
