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.


Pet Peeve #--Let's Just Say It's Close To The Top

First I'm too damn old to get my ass chewed out or blamed on shit I had nothing to do with. That's what bama 's done to me. There is not much respect left if any for this man who blames me for his problems he refuses to address because when you take the position he has on key issues he is a repug at heart. It is just that simple.

So I'm supposed to shut the fuck up and be happy with the fact the richest in the world will be allowed by you to have even more of my money and I'm the problem. Kiss my ass bama and you need your ass kicked back and forth over the Potomac more than just a few times for fucking "we the people".

And you dimodummies  who think he did ok with this as he has with other things -say the HCB I suppose you'll be happier than a pig in shit when he lets the richest in the world get their hands on Social Security  too. How stupid are you?


  1. Here's an idea: give Obama to the Republicans and run a real Democrat against him in 2012.

  2. Please tell Fearguth where we can find a real one and I am really serious not just trying to be a smart ass.

  3. I knew I should have put 'real' in scare quotes!

  4. You know what pissed me off? We hear it might cost us up to 900 billion to help the rich again and the military has been fighting and dying for 10 years in this just beginning forever war and he gives them the lowest increase in 50 years. What is wrong with us? How do we stay quiet and let them get away with all they do? WTF?

  5. Please explain, in a thousand words or less, how Obama could have "won" when the rethugs had this game rigged. "Fighting" and being "tougher" sound great, but I don't see how that breaks a filibuster. Seems like your engaging in a circular firing squad in defense of a unicorn farm.

  6. The Democrats have majorities in both houses of Congress. If Obama had told them he wanted something other than what he told them he wanted, he would have gotten that instead.

    How pathetic do you have to be to feel that a game is rigged by your opponents when you have the majority? That's what a lot of progressives keep telling themselves. It's sad and amazing, all at the same time.

  7. I'm surprised that you're surprised. Obama's a politician, and as such he doesn't care about the country or the citizens; he cares only about his career. A leader is something else, but there are no leaders nowadays; the last one was Churchill.

  8. Pygalgia- I read your post and I do not agree with you. I did not use the the words you have in quotes. Bama took single payer off the table and if the truth be known this was off the table as well. Do not try to convince me even for a second the President and a House majority have no tools at their disposal and are left at the mercy of the other party. Bullshit.

    Agreed Cujo !!

    I'm not surprised Duta-I called this months ago it's just that it gets so old that and our side will not accept how flawed this president is plus the fact that dims are just as big of whores as the repugs.

  9. yep, this was the one that angered me enough to go straight over the edge, cussing a blue streak and yet, still give the guy a pass by wondering if he doesn't do what the top 2% want if he will live?

    Call me a wild-eyed conspiracy theorist (don't give a shit any more), but hey does everyone here believe the Warren commission report?

    I sure as fuck don't.

  10. I forgot what I really believe but it's where I don't go often as there is only a handful who think like you and I. Yes these people kill.

    August 19,2010 and I meant it when I said it.

  12. One Fly,
    I absolutely got your back here man. I'm so fucking pissed at people still sucking Obama's dick, if you'll pardon my foul mouth. Yet they're still out there, saying "what else could he do with the progressives not voting" or "it's the republicans, Obama isn't fighting for us all".
    Dang are they smoking crack? I'm an ignorant halfbreed and I can tell which side of the bread the butters on, why can't they?

  13. Because Oso a cabal of the most evil and powerful control most of this with the "or else" card. They do what they are told-every last fucking one of them and it's only going to get worse.
