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.


A Culture Of Beater Cops

Bottom line they say it ain't so but it is. These people with guns and badges will beat you given the chance to "teach a lesson".  This is nothing new but seems to be increasing and again it's the badges themselves that determine among themselves that it's okay to meter out a bit of their own justice. Fuck that and this below is not an exception. All over the country people are being hurt by these powerful people who enjoy beating people. And of course they keep it between themselves and that's what makes this case different.

One beating by a cop and the sonofabitch never should be allowed to carry a gun or a club again in his lifetime.


  1. Only a 'thin blue line' separates cops from robbers, a line that's easy to cross.

  2. The cop that injured the 16-year old boy should definitely not be allowed to serve as a cop any more.

    However, I think the majority of cops in democratic countries don't enjoy beating, and would happily avoid violent confrontation with protesters or other seemingly order disrupters.

  3. That's for sure Fearguth. Have you seen this? I look once and a while but it doesn't mean that cops are worse than before.

  4. The 2nd link didn't work for me.

  5. I know there are many good ones out there but - - - ordered to beat passive protesters I say they'd do that and shoot as well if told to do so. Seen it too many times. How can you shoot a projectile into a crowd that have no protection and have no idea where it may hit. That's torture and a crime!

  6. My mistake Nunya. There was just one link and when you grab more than one paragraph and put the link in it seems the link only works for the first. I knew that and just didn't run them together like it is now. Sorry bout dat.

  7. Much to the consternation of law and order conservatives and even a few law and order liberals, I have a deep dislike and distrust for cops.

    In my view, law enforcement in the USA is a protected class allowed to prey on citizens.

    Police are permitted to pillage, beat, rape and even murder Americans and immigrants turning a bland eye to the law they are sworn to uphold.

    Rare is the jury that comes back with a guilty verdict when a cop is charged with lawlessness.

    What I tell people who get weak in the knees whenever they see a cop, please Google "Office Ramirez, Austin TX." This cretin responded to a possible robbery in progress call but, when he got there, he found a woman very attractive and he raped her.

    This filthy piece of shit remains on the Austin PD receiving pay, health benefits and retirement.

    Unfortunately, this isn't an isolated case. In my own family, I saw my parents dragged into a case where the Chief of Police murdered his wife after learning she was cheating on him. Long story short, the Chief of Police was cleared by a jury of all charges.

    While I am sure there are a few good cops, I think and I believe, they are the exception.

    The good news for me is, when I am called for jury duty, during the voir dire, as soon as I say I dislike and I distrust cops, I am always excused.

  8. I think I've seen 'Injustice Everywhere' once before, but I failed to add it to my Favorites. Now I have. Thanks, Fly!
