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.


Backoff On The Pedestal

From Boulder -A Boulder County Sheriff's deputy was arrested Tuesday for allegedly having sexually explicit contact with girls on the Internet. 

You have the sex/meth freak former sheriff in a jail named after him up on the front range near Denver getting his bond reduced from 500k to 50k because he was a good guy before ya see. Of course he bonded right outta there. Get this - 
A 22-member task force will handle the expanding investigation into former Sheriff Pat Sullivan's alleged meth-for-sex case


Whether is here or someplace else it's all done the same. The pedestal is far too high and all humans are capable and do perform heroic deeds. You do not need a badge to be considered special.

I know and understand the dynamics of this profession. Frankly you don't like your job get the fuck out of the business and grow flowers or something.

Treat us like people instead of criminals and keep your damn hand away from your fucking gun. Almost all of us are no threat to you. You feel danger use a shield when you approach and that way you don't scare the holy shit out of people because you keep you're damn hand near your gun like you gonna use it you asshole.

Another reason is there is little respect for we the people and the men in blue won't change. We are adversaries and that mentality is proven easily with the text messages by police in Denver with the OWS people.

I have nothing but respect for other responders and the job they do. There's a big difference and that is they can't shoot or beat you because they feel like it.


  1. The best way to make sure a task never gets done is to appoint a task force.

  2. I know a young man who works in Folsom Prison, he's not a guard, he has an office job. He says he prefers the prisoners to the guards.

  3. You can bet that any exonerating evidence turned up by the 22 hard working investigators will be turned over to the defense immediately instead of getting lost in the files forever.

  4. Police Officers who abuse the trust of their office deserve an additional criminal penalty upon those of the crime they committed.

    Unfortunately, criminal officers make the job harder on others by building an emotional instinct/memory in the minds of those who hear/witness their malfeasance.

  5. It's a system/cycle that is not going to change anytime soon that is for damn sure.
