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 About Yours? Here It's 22%

That's the amount those with out health care has risen in a two year period. 12% a year is dramatic in itself. Next door in a five county area that number is 34%. I bet this county is close and it will be the emergency room for me if attention is needed.

I'm tired of continual shitty numbers from all aspects we get defining the obvious decline of our country and our society.

Merca is tired as well but in the wrong way shaped by the 1%'s media.


  1. I pay my grandmother's Medicare Part D premiums so she doesn't have to fork out the coin from her Social Security.

    Last year (actually 2011), it was $7.90 a month or $94.80 for the year.

    This year (actually 2012) the monthly premium has risen to $17.90 a month or $214.80.

    This is a 120% increase.

    I'm still waiting to see what Barry's National Healthcare bill is going to do to help my grandmother?

  2. If in 2014 if what I understand is correct I will have to pay money to the health care system. If that happens and I get nothing this fellow will be extremely angry.

  3. As I understand it, ObamaCare forces all Americans to purchase insurance.

    Contrary to auto insurance -- the analogy the O-Bots try (and fail) to make, you can refuse to buy auto insurance and hope you don't get in an accident.

    With ObamaCare, if you don't buy health insurance, the U.S. Dept of Treasury will seize your income tax returns.

  4. I'm gonna get screed more than likely as will many others.

  5. This is one of the main reasons me and the wife are making the BIG move.

  6. It's probably the best decision you ever make if you can get out before the borders are closed while reedukation is ramped up.

    And above that is screwed not screed. I can't see mistake even if it's looking at me.
