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.


Are Ya Happy - Well Are Ya Dim?

We're talking the Dems who had the power to make a difference who chose instead to be nice rather than using a gun when needed to combat all the knives the right had at their disposal. Thanks a lot for the non-effort and for the rank and file of the left who thought these corporate dims on the left were the answer to this country's problems well cry cry cry!

And for all you joyous repug dumb fucks who are pissing their pants in glee - if you think the likes of these neanderthals you voted into office will bring the nirvana you think they will well you're fucking nuts.

The dark ages was a difficult place to live.

People in this country really are dumb. It's not all their fault but educated country's are laughing their asses off at us once again in just a few short years.

Bloggers on the left did our job quite nicely actually and I'm proud of the sites I link to who contributed so much to the discourse needed to have an intelligent conversation on topics of the day. We sure as hell didn't get that from the ones that needed to be saying it.

This question remains -will the Dim Senate do the same as what the repugs did the last two years and just say no to these crazy bastards just elected to the house. Chances are real good they will be happy to assist this slide into darkness.

Just look the fuck out my friends- we ain't seen nothing yet!


  1. thanks for this post...

    I think the Netroots and the NetLeft did far more for itself than any politician these last few months. It became VERY clear that if we wanted a real progressive movement, we're going to have to up and build, maintain and protect it ourselves.

    One Love, One Struggle,

  2. We did what we could and were told to shut the fuck up.

    Ya gets what ya asked for, ya dumb cock suckers.

    Hold on to yer ass and start stocking up.
    They are going to crash us into the ground, on purpose.

  3. Well said.
    Fasten your seat belts.
    The race to the bottom is now on mach speed.

    We deserve the best government that the Corps. can lease.

  4. Obama will compromise on the already compromised to shit but nothing of consequence will get done as Boehner will put forth shit Reid will not let through. The next two are going to be worse than the first two.

  5. Thanks men! Ya know we just got through eight years of the chimp and that was bad enough and now two years of this shit with a real mandate and now this. It really is hard to take. Like all of you I expect and I'm sure we'll see nothing but bad.

  6. We are in for a calamity of epic proportion. See what happens when the debt ceiling is to be raised.
