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.


How Stupid Is Our Prez?

bama says this about Gbagbo in the Ivory Coast.

Yup everyone knows that and went on to say -

No shit Cisco. Can't you tell us something we don't know and blowing smoke out your ass is not going to do squat! And this country and this president has no tools at it's disposal to help? Bullshit!

We/us can't take on a bunch of small boys and get this man out of the country? Double bullshit!! 

If it were cruise missiles we'd be real good with that. Bang bang shoot shoot fuck all of you!


  1. I gather there's no oil to be had in the Ivory Coast.

  2. I hear that Fearguth but the quick answer to that is that there probably is. They got it in Nigeria,Ghana and The IC is a few miles down the road. The time is not right I suppose. I guess rich froggy's will not be visiting their jewel for some time.

  3. Referring to your title question: I don't get riled up about his stupidity, as he's probably fairly intelligent, what I am Very pissed about, is how stupid he thinks We are. THAT riles me.I voted for this man and what he said he believed in and would accomplish, based on his grandiose, feel-good, manipulative lies. I feel used. And that doesn't feel good. I'm going to follow George Carlin into opting out of the entire political system. I'm tired, worn down by the bullshit.

  4. Of course he's extremely intelligent and I agree with you completely.For some time I thought there were many who think like we do and like many of the bloggers I read. Maybe 20% but anymore I think it's much less. I am very close to doing the Carlin thing. It would not surprise me to hear from democrats soon.

    Why are those libruls and progressives so angry.

  5. I fully agree with your title about the President. He cannot solve any of America's ailing problems, so he turns to other countries asking their presidents to step down, and so creating chaos and destruction everywhere. His voters should remind him that "charity begins at home".

  6. The problem here is that if there's oil the right wants him to step in bomb the hell out of them. If there's no oil the left wants him to step in and bomb the hell out of them. Why can't we mind our own fucking business and stay out of all these places?

  7. The thing is, his lemming supporters will blame us if he losses to Palin or some other righty. Perhaps even to a birther. It's our fault the Great Appeaser may loose. I see it all over the blogs. We're called names because we descent. How dare we not be like Bush's followers who saw nothing while he was in office. Yes we are the winey bastards. I like to think we're the truth tellers and not the hypocrites they are.

  8. Good stuff everyone! Thank you for that.
