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.


Thank You Once Again President Carter

Nuff said except that this man has more compassion in his little finger and the ability to bring people together than any right winger anywhere let alone former repug presidents.


  1. You may recall that a bunch of rightist bloggers ranked Jimmy as the worst person in American history. Timothy McVeigh was #9 on this list.

  2. I do recall and the mistake they made was not putting themselves #1.

  3. Fuck those rightwing nutters...like they have any conception of who is good or bad. Assholes all.

    I always loved Carter and think he got a bad rap from BOTH sides of the aisle.

  4. Fearguth brought it the Conservative Tearrorists hatred for President Carter but they hate him for saving this guy too...

  5. Kim Jung-Il was in China at the time. Chatter has it that he is trying to prop up his youngest soon as the new [Dear leader].
    He will need to get China's nod.
    Carter got the rawest deal ever in politics. The Iranian hostage deal was made to go down after the elections. So in a way one could say that Raygun was a usurper.LOL
    No hostages no Reagan.

  6. I liked Carter that much as well Dusty. Even back then the media destroyed this man.

    Of course they do Gene it's what they do.

    Isn't that treason RZ. I was so fucking mad when I found that out.

    These sonsofbitches do and say whatever they please as there is no one to fight back at least enough anyway and it's so very goddamn old.

  7. I'm sick of North Korea playing this game but he did it. I was personally pissed that the little dictator dissed him.

  8. Jimmy Carter has done more for the worrying since he was POTUS than he did in office and when he was in office he was stabbed by both parties but most importantly he was scammed by the "Bush" family. What we must learn is that POTUS's who seem weak are the best ones for our country as a whole. Trying to govern based on what is right for the country is harder than governing on what is right for those who govern you [potus].

  9. Hope you all remember how Reagan fucked him in the ass. Reagan made sure the American prisoners weren't released until the moment Reagan was sworn in. Stuck it in and broke it off.

  10. I've had two debates with righty bloggers about Jimmy Carter. In my opinion he was a great president. He was the right man at the right time.

    History would be far kinder to him were it not for the dishonesty and hatred of the right.
