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.


Benny Turns To Darkies

The Rat is in Africa telling them to be less violent among other things. Rape was not mentioned even with the christian Congo that uses rape as a weapon of war.  I respect this man below a great deal!

"The Poop can send a message, calling the faithful and members of the catholic community to be more true to their christian faith. What is the purpose of loving god and hating your neighbor?" said Olupona.

Nuff said but there is another matter that I very much take exception to  and needs to be addressed. From the same piece.

Benny is returning this week to Africa, the roman catholic church's fastest-growing region whose pool of aspiring priests is helping to replenish orders in Europe, where congregations are dwindling. In the past decade, Benin's catholic population has grown by half, more than half-a-million converts while congregations in Europe including in Germany and Poland, the countries that produced both the current poop and his successor, are declining.

People have seen through the smokes and mirrors and the threat of eternal damnation and numbers are way down as they should be. So what do you do? Rig the game that's what.

If you were in West Africa and white I believe it fair to say you would be held in awe by many. Baring your teeth with a scowl on your face will send pesky little kids running away pissing their pants in fear. Many and of course not all are easily  influenced and when combined with the fear factor no wonder Benny is so proud of his numbers here.

I think it's a crime to do such a thing no matter what sort of religious bullshit it may be. It's just plain wrong!


  1. I'm very much against missionarism. Let people decide for themselves what they want to believe in.

  2. Agreed Duta but when you're religiously insane you can do what ever you think is right in ones addled brain.

  3. The story in my newspaper mentioned that Benin is the center of Voodoo worship in Africa. It quoted one Voodoo member as saying he was a Catholic too. "They are different roads to the same place." I don't think Benny will make much of an impression on most people. They will be polite but they have to live their lives after he is gone.

  4. That is correct and many play both sides. White people have so much they won't miss anything. Be part of it and see what can be chopped. That is the opportunist part of it and there are quite a few that look at it like that.

  5. Few media mentioned that Benin's arch bishop stood down last year over allegations of misconduct, and that several priests were fired (can priests be fired?) because they had wives and children. In short, the Catholic church in Benin is a mess. Could be that the Poop came to sort things out. I doubt that there are reliable statistics at to the supposed growth of Catholicism in Benin. I wouldn't be surprised if evangelical churches grow even faster.

  6. Yes priests can be shit canned with the wave of a bejeweled finger. The priests I met in Ghana both had bedroom dictionaries.

    For the most part Big Whore Media has and will continue to give this terrible man and this organization and the others who do the same a pass. It fits the 1%'s agenda.

    Just another reason we are in the mess we are. Supporting illusions over reality and common sense.
