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.


Bull Shit On The "Official"

So after all the carnage for a decade we can put the corporate stamp of "officially over" in Irak. Not reading much of this because it's bull shit as well rewriting history to suit the needs of the 1%.

There was no using the word "official" when the bushes invaded and occupied for the specific agenda of a very few powerful entities.

What is "official" is this invasion and occupation that continues no matter what is said was done on a pack of lies. Like George I screamed as well before the invasion that it was all lies and people looked at you like you were fucking nuts.

Paying little attention if any to this because the intentional nightmare started by the 1% with bush/cheney at the helm enabled by the very people who are supposed to be on our side in DC will and is continuing no matter how many back slappers are around bama.

I'm glad these soldiers will be home for the holidays very much so. It does not change the reality of what is faced ahead.


  1. We'll still be pumping billions into Iraq via the State Department.

  2. Mostly a smoke screen Fearguth. Getting the hind teat all the time gets old.

  3. Dear Leader had "Indefinite Detention" Added to the Massive $662 Billion Dollar Defense Authorization Bill.


    Anyone still think Barry is the best Democratic president since JFK?

  4. This is the way an Iraqi put it:

    Another man, Mundhar Kamel, 65, said the departure changed little. "This move is them exiting from one door and entering from another. In the embassy they still have 15,000 people and there is talk about 3,000 more [military] trainers. This is not a withdrawal, this is an act on a stage."

  5. Thanks Christopher. I'm putting this up because it explains all so very well and I agree with Cenk.

    A must watch.

  6. That is one huge NO SHIT CISCO Fearguth. But the sheep bleat for the tebows and santa and mangers.

  7. I forgot to mention, Fly, that I once passed a stone like the one in your pic. 8>

  8. If it's as slick as this one I bet it slipped right out or not.
