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.


Our Side Does Not Kill - Another Two Cents Worth

UPDATE: This post is in reference to U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords

First condolences to every person affected by the slaughter yesterday.

People on the right have said the same but I do not believe many of them. It was not Republicans nor Tea Baggers who were gunned down but people like you and me who think like and have values similar to those who were shot. Big Whore Media will explain this in terms that will continue to fit their agenda.

Having seen baggers and repugs in action in Grand Junction a little over a year ago when bama came to town I was taken back at the level and intensity of hate and anger that permeated from the crowd of flag wearing/waving people screaming their love for my country but not for us on the other side of the street.

There is one major point out of so many that I will use for this tragedy to explain the depths of where these people are at using this assassination as an example. If the accused had similar ideas/values as you and I this would not have happened and that is fair to say as the facts are not in on the rest of his history. I'm sure it will be interesting.

My point is this - the people on hate radio and TV for a long time have branded liberals/liberalism as the greatest threat our country has ever faced. That we are the one thing that threatens all that those on the other side think is good about their country and they are incited in various devious ways and rhetoric to do something about that and they have just like now.

Don't anybody shit yourselves as there are many on the other side of the street that are pleased that this happened and want to see more of the same as it a battle for their FREEDOM you see.

The right cannot win on policy stances alone as they have been proven not to work. To win this ideology has to lie,cheat and steal. If that doesn't work they'll fucking kill you and that's a fact.


  1. It is rather striking that there is no liberal equivalent of Loughner, or McVeigh, or the Hutaree.

    Last I heard, police are now looking for a suspected accomplice in the Arizona shooting, which rather undermines the suggestion that Loughner was just mentally ill and not a politically-motivated terrorist.

  2. So long as media allows the broadcast and publication of hate-filled rhetoric, it will only get worse. I consider those public and private figures who control the content of the newspapers and radio/TV broadcasts equally as guilty of murder as the one who pulled the trigger.

  3. Let's find this guy as your point is a good one I753.

  4. Me too jeg and do we agree this is an assassination and we have terrorism within our own borders carried out by citizens of this country.

    No one in DC will go there but that's what we have!

  5. The MSM will not call this an assassination.
    If they did then the media and the govt. would have to admit that we have home bred terrorists in our own country.
    This assassin may be a lone wolf.
    But there are many of these lone wolves in wolf dens all over the country.
    This was a premeditated assassination.

  6. That's a very tragic event and it makes one very sad to read and hear about. My condolences to the amilies of the dead and quick recovery to the wounded!

    If the killer was known as mentally deranged, how come he had a gun? That's the big, relevant question.

    I believe that only policemen and army people should carry guns.A country which allows regular citizens to carry guns is not worth living in, as they end up killing their wives and neighbors.

  7. What some people say aloud others will put into action. Advocating murder is not freedom of speech.

  8. PM Prescott, is right. The Conservatives have created a climate of anti-government, specifically against Democrats. And when you state over and over and over that America is in danger, and Real Americans need to take back the country and place targets on Congresspersons, question the religion, patriotism and birth of the President, people are going to react.

    And that reaction can not be controlled.

    The Right has been advocating the use of violence or threat of violence to effect Political change, this is known as Terrorism.

    Conservatism is Terrorism.

  9. Like I have said to everyone (left OR right) who has tried equivocating.... BULLSHIT. There is NO equivocation. It is the Rushpubliscums and their ultra-right allies who do all the talking about violence. Period. end of discussion.

    I actually unfriended a lefty today for wanting to argue about this. I'm not in an arguing mood.

  10. We are correct people and the truth cannot be denied but only by our Big Whore Media and they will be as usual successful in blaming others.

    Duta-the guns will never go away and it as seen here a real negative.

    Thanks everyone.
