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.

UK Police Chief Says Yo To Decriminalizing Drugs And No To Incarceration

In many places outside the borders of this country people are smarter than us and with this issue it becomes asinine at times how here there can not even be a discussion about the possibility of decriminalizing some drugs. And this does not come from some overweight traffic cop but from a wheel in the system.

One of Britain's most senior police officers has proposed decriminalising the personal use of drugs such as cannabis to allow more resources to be dedicated to tackling high-level dealers.

Why would he say such a thing?
Intervention comes amid growing warnings from experts that prohibition does not deter drug use
 
Well no shit Cisco imagine that. People with fucking brains that wear a badge. Oh that's right they don't live here. To be fair there are some wheels here who feel the same way but of course no one listens to them.

Bring it on California!

  1. i fucking LOVE it... this makes it like cultural item 31,043 that america has fallen behind on.... seriously, if we could replace all the alcholics in america with potheads you'd see book readership go up and domestic violence go down...

    To attempt to deter something so unaddictive (it's less addictive than coffee, booze or cigarettes) and so benign shows in its un-logic some other intent. I've always held, and will always hold, that projects like a "Drug Free Workplace" are a modern political Jim Crowe law. The companies get big ol' tax rebates to keep former pot-smokers form achieving anything with their lives....

    Well now, let's consider who the pot-smokers are... who are the kind of people that have enjoyed an affordable, sense-enhancing smoke-able of the underground.... minorities, labor organizers, lefties, college activists....

    i know, maybe it seems like i'm reading too much into this, but I definitely will go into the longer uglier history at some point at my own site. But, if you look at the history of when those poc=licies were implimented at the state and federal level, which legislators and executives implemented those policies, and then where they got their political contributions from, you end up with a very scary picture of a few right-wing billionaires coming to dominate how we perceive "drug usage." (rarely do you see any PSA's for pill-based addictions... you think Bristoll Myers Squibb would ever allow that to happen? they're big enough to make the Coors family look like petticoat mendicants)

  2. What's so absurd about this as well is that there really is no rational argument for continuing the dark age policy of stay the course in our third war front. Pass it by huge numbers cali!!

  3. As I've been saying for a while now the chant should be for us...We're number 3...we're number 3 and we worked hard to fall to that.
    I hear there is no more farting on Sundays. For Jews, it's Saturday.
    Yes the fart police are here...Funny thing is they all look like Virginia Foxx.

  4. I believe that there many politicians that agree that legalizing pot is the right thing to do, but once the media gets a hold of it things get irrational because they will as usual hype the fear factor and profits over reporting a rational, mature discussion about what is best for the country.

  5. A truly enlightened man. It seems the media is more interested in keeping everyone in the dark.

  6. Well good for them! I am hoping the entire country follows California and their marijuana business plan. It is not a win win it is an all around win!

  7. California seems key right now in that it will or should move the discussion forward. At least I hope so.
