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.

The Closed Door Nutter Event In Da Boat

Colorado voters respond to conference of top right-wing strategists, politicians on Social Security and Medicare in Steamboat Springs


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Saturday, August 28, 2010

CONTACT: Kjersten Forseth at 719-641-4674



Steamboat Springs: ProgressNow Colorado, the state’s largest online progressive advocacy organization, called on top right-wing strategists and politicians gathered in this beautiful mountain resort to abandon their plans to privatize Social Security and end Medicare.



With very little media coverage, the conservative Steamboat Institute organized the weekend “Freedom Conference,” featuring speakers such as Nevada state Sen. Sharron Angle, former top Bush strategist Karl Rove, and Grover Norquist—the man who coined the term ‘drown government in a bathtub.’



“These are the same ideologues who toured the country in 2005 with President Bush, telling seniors how great it would be to invest their guaranteed Social Security benefit with Wall Street,” said Kjersten Forseth, executive director of ProgressNow Colorado. “Thank goodness the American people didn’t take their advice then.



“Today, these same leaders on the right have gathered in a secluded Colorado mountain resort to plot the next step in their plans to hand Social Security over to Wall Street and end Medicare—with renewed confidence after almost two years of blatant falsehoods and disinformation to make the American people afraid.”

At noon on Saturday, Colorado voters gathered before the Stamboat Grand with a simple message: “Hands off Social Security. Hands off Medicare.” There are a range of progressive options for preserving the guaranteed benefit of Social Security and Medicare without surrendering them to Wall Street and the health insurance industry--the simplest of which is to allow Bush's irresponsible tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans to expire.



“Preserving Social Security and Medicare for future generations is what Americans want, not a Karl Rove shell game,” concluded Forseth. "Social Security needs to be reinforced for our children and grandchildren, and continue to serve as a safeguard against the ups and downs of Wall Street. For so many millions of working families counting on Social Security and Medicare when they retire, it's not a game."



The truth of these matters lies with people on the outside of these closed events that cost hundreds to get in. Of course media is not allowed in any shape or form when these people start opening their pie holes. I'm sure it will be even bigger and better next year.

  1. With all those wacko's in attendance.

  2. The very presence of Obtuse Angle demonstrates that this conference was Teabuggery Central. Steamboat Springs is far to beautiful a town to be subjected to such extreme pollution.

  3. There is plent of that kind here and the other kind as well-it's true RZ.

    There's plenty money here TC so there are plenty of buggery to go around. The head of the city council is a true bugger. A mini Palmer who co-hosts a buggery radio program with a true winger from DC. This guy is a real whore and lies through his teath. Used to and probably still does hang with another slug down valley who is known to solicit KKK material and that's a fact Jack!

  4. Thanks to you and your friends for showing up and taking the time to make your opinions known. The way I see it is the republicans sweep this fall and when confronted with governing they will have no choice but to own the 2000 to 2008 reign of terror and in 2012 we come in and get a majority that this country has never seen. Barack is fishing for some fish to take the bait. Not a good thing short term, but the long term result would be useful.

  6. at this point the right-wing can't even be called pro-business anymore... from the economist to the financial times, most of the major economic journals have denounced social security privatization... it's like stepping back a hundred years in social progress...

    they only want the social security investment pool so they can finish selling off the american markets before they collapse....

    as for tim's comment... that's just what these rich fuckers want... don't forget the haymarkets "riot" and the thousands of other frame-jobs... honestly, that's what I though beck was going for yesterday... they're gonna find a way to imagine a "violent and radical left" for the paranoid suburbanite... poor fucker's so culturally and economically obsolete that he has little chance of knowing better... these right-wing fuckers can't wait to get gestapo on our asses

  7. That is the deeper message if not said outright that people on the left are one of the great dangers to this country. These fucktards hate us.
