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 Guvmint Killing Their Own Soldiers

And they don't care not even a little bit!

If you have not seen this or are unaware of the suicide of this soldier who was redeployed to bama's Afghanny war front eight times at least then maybe you should watch his wife tell his story.

How this women holds it together is a mystery.

I despise the people that do these things to others and our government who votes continually for perpetual war.

May the killing soon stop because the people demanded it!

  1. Suicide guy must have liked being in the military better than he liked living and not being in the military is all I can figure. Otherwise he wouldn't have signed up in the first place and wouldn't have kept signing up, then offed himself to get out instead of just not signing up again the last time.

    One of the ways a person can keep from going to Afghan or Iraq or BongoBongoland is not to join the military. A person who joins it needs to be advised he might have to go somewhere he'd rather not go.

  2. I don't think you watched the video. It is long. PTSD is a hideous thing to have and certainly a person who has it is not thinking normally.

    This man was crying out for help for a long time and he got screwed by everyone in the military.

    This is not his fault.

  3. I agree One Fly. There are a lot of young men who really think that going into the military will help the country. One of our local farm kids did that. His intentions were very good. Reality caught up with him in Afghanistan, though, when one of his fellow soldiers kept trying to kill him. He still wasn't disillusioned, though, until his military "superiors" refused to deal with the problem and threatened to punish HIM instead. To his credit, he just quit and came home. You could probably question his motives, too, if you didn't know the kid like we all do. His story sure stopped the other local kids from joining.

    Perhaps you are not aware of how the military works.
    Perhaps you did not watch the video.

    Thanks for posting this.
    I wish every one would see this.

    The Masters of War are sending our kids to protect the multinational corps interests over seas.

    Our kids shed their blood sweat and tears for their bottom line.

    We are now Murder Inc.
