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.


What Wars For Lies Gets You

Below is from a message received about the latest round of budget cuts here in Colorado. It's like this all over our country not just here. Let's not forget why are we in this position.

I don't give a shit what the whore pundits and mouthers of lies on AM radio say but the root of our budget problems started with the invasion of Iraq for nothing but lies to benefit a few. That and absolutely no accountability for that and the other atrocities committed by the likes of the killer bushes the end result is our country is totally broke from the theft of most everything the middle class had and now they are after the rest.

Why should we have to bear the brunt of even more? I say this. Our Gov. Hick can gather up some of his other guv butt buddies from both sides of the aisle and head on out to the capitol and do what they did over there in the land of Pyramids. Camp out on the steps of the double house of whores and demand these monies come straight from the defense budget.

 We have no money to educate but can continue to kill at will forever. Just so sick of it and no one connects the simple puzzle as to why we are here.

Right now, Colorado is at a crossroads. Just a few minutes ago, the governor announced the latest round of truly devastating cuts to next year’s budget. Hundreds of millions more will be cut from K-12 education. More cuts to our colleges. Closing state parks. The state legislature has to find $1.2 billion, yes that’s BILLION with a B, in either more money or cuts to balance this year’s budget alone. That’s on top of the $5 billion we’ve had to cover over the previous 3 years. The future we’re facing is unsustainable. We aren’t raising enough money to pay for the things that make Colorado work.


  1. Well now, it isn't like we can ask any of those brokers, bankers, or trust-funders for anything now, is it?

  2. maybe the goopers can have Leahy start writing angry letters again.

    And BTW what was the result of rovers behind closed door testimony to congress. I understand they are still waiting for Harriet to show as well.

  3. I'm for unicameral (one house) state legislatures. Think about it, a bicameral (House and Senate) makes sense for the feds, because of the nature of our federal republic, but not for states. During the Great Depression Nebraska turned to a unicameral system. I'm sure states could save some money doing that.

  4. I'm with you, One Fly. All we have to do is:

    1. Get out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    2. Return to the tax rates we had under Clinton, or at the very least raise the top rate back to 39%. Hell, I would raise it a lot higher.

    Do these two things and our deficit problems would be just about over. But no, instead these Fuckers have to cut education and benefits that help the poor and unemployed. It is disgraceful.

  5. Thanks for that JC. It is just that simple but our side will let these bastards screw us till we're just about dead.

  6. They probably could Andy but if that did nor work to the rights advantage then no way in hell.

  7. Ron Paul who I think doesn't doesn't stand a shot in hell for the Presidency just won the Repug straw poll with 37%, he as a Libertarian wants to get rid of the department of Education

  8. Who's going to teach and assist in the education of children in this country when that happens.

  9. unbelievable isn't it? It is as if our future as a country does not matter only theirs.

  10. I do not think I am wrong on this. This should be a talking point every time we the people have to give even more than what we have.
