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.

The Old War Whore Speaks

bama says this -

"I know that our troops will continue the hard work of transitioning to a stronger Afghan government and ensuring that Afghanistan is not a safe haven for terrorists," he said in remarks delivered at the White House. "We will press on and we will succeed."

Yes but of course what else would you say as the peace prez who strongly supports this war and started another. Liberality sort of woke me up with her comment on the post below this one and the nice will not be used here. Let's be blunt -

The 30 or whatever who perished this weekend are not hero's. Get it? What they are though is pure home grown cannon fucking fodder for the rich and powerful. That's the reality. Don't like it fill out a hurt feelings report. I am sick of perpetual war and the escalation of the ones we are in and I ain't changing not even a little bit. I want nothing to do with war loving assholes and that includes bama. He is no friend of mine.

There is another thing that sticks in my craw. Across this country and here locally and at state level there are movements to place on the ballots tax increases for the schools.

I'm all for educating the kiddies but have the nuts to explain why we need it and how we got here. I'll tell you how -  wars for fucking lies that have continued for years and a trillion dollar give away to the banks are two of the reasons.

Why is this so very important? Because no one was ever called into account and it can and will happen again because these sonsofbitches know that. They all knew it when the chimp lowed his hairy palm after stealing and then lying when he took the oath in 2000.

Already the mind screwing on 911 is ramping up and I've been years sick of that shit too. Remind the masses about the killer monkey and his asshole buds and their treasonous actions daily would be nice - you betcha. This country is downright proud of these actions taken on behalf of them by our leaders of this once great nation.

This is never spoken of much anymore as it's a forgone conclusion that civilized society committed no fouls with this you see. My ass.

I'm never going to let this go and I don't give a shit if I'm disliked or lose associations with people because of this position.

It is vitally important because this is the root of some of the major issues we face as a country today.

But it ain't changing and that's understood too.

  1. Hi Bud: Sorry to see you so upset. It ain't something new and surprising. It's something been going on so long we're not supposed to be able to see it, liking a kid growing up before our eyes without being able to notice without a yardstick or marks and dates on a doorframe.

    When politicians of opposing parties say ugly things about one another they always tell the truth. Both parties. One party's been badmouthing this guy a long time, and they were telling the truth. Same as what the opposing side is saying about the TPs and NeoCons is also 100% true.

    It's the only time a politician actually tells the truth.

  2. My local fishwrap had a real WTF story today. The headline was about how the crash showed the risk the troops faced. The WTF was what did we expect in a war? What is the proper number of bodies coming home to make people realize the waste that shitty little war is?

  3. I'm not upset Jules. This is the way it's always been. There's no mercy for actions like this. No being nice - no reaching across the aisle. You know that kind of shit. This is the worst of the worst and no one even knows let alone gives a shit. Just needs to be said every once in awhile.

    The only one saying boo about this shit is bloggers like you and me Mont. I see no bitching anywhere in the whore stream of da news. This is where we're at I guess and what America wants.

  4. Don't ever change.
    Truth sayers are few and far between.

    You are 100% correct.
    Americans have grown accustomed to war.
    As long as it ain't in their back yard.
    And as long as they aren't white.
    Wannabe liberals are still in denial that they have been Bamaboozled by one of the best.

    We do not have a liberal leader, or even a centrist in the white house.

    What we have is a BAG MAN for the Tea Baggers, Rethugs, MIC, Banksters, and Neoliberals.
    The democRATic party has been coopted by saboteurs, and traitors to society, and the human race.

  5. Bob Dylan said it best in his tune Masters of War
    "Let me ask you one question Is your money that good Will it buy you forgiveness Do you think that it could I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul. And I hope that you die And your death'll come soon I will follow your casket In the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered Down to your deathbed And I'll stand over your grave 'Til I'm sure that you're dead.------- Bob Dylan 1963

  6. Here is a great read by Ray Mc Govern that fits right into this post.

    Enjoy.

    The one thing that war mongers and the elite fear is exposure.
    They are not afraid that we will find out their dirty little secrets.
    They are afraid of what we will do once we do figure it out.

    Beware of false flags.
