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.

"Unconscionable" Colorado's School Funding

This one hurts as it should. From a case filed in 2005 and it's really bad now with this state's school system.

Briefly my opinion has always been and truly believe that whether it's here or anywhere else in the country all are facing the same thing not just on education.

It's wrong to discuss these problems without including the road taken to get there. Why? Because that same road is still here. Two examples -wars for lies and give away's to the bankster's  with no accountability for the crimes committed by the 1% against the 99%.

As long as this blog exists there will no participating in the rewriting of history.

  1. The so-called free education in this country is in a miserable state. The whole thing needs reworking and a new motive for it established. We don't need more worker bees/drones, we need a more well-educated, critical thinking citizenry.

    Good Morning.

  2. Yes it is pretty good. Thanks and the same back.

    How do we accomplish things needed now given the climate of let's just say these last three years.

  3. Texas went down the very same road years ago, and our school-funding system is still cock-a-hoop.

  4. America will have to choose in the very near future.
    Will we keep accepting a Corporatocracy that feeds on the blood sweat and tears of the masses.
    Or do we rethink and start looking at the needs of the people.
    Our military is suppose to defend those that can not defend themselves.
    Instead we invade, shock and awe, occupy foreign lands for their natural resources and their transit routes.
    Educating our youth, taking care of our elderly, providing for our less fortunate is no where to be seen.
    Both sides of the aisle are blinded by the money from the Corps.
    If we raise fools, then we are fools.

  5. Good for the judge. Guess what there is a way to follow the judges order without adding more money. Get rid of all the rediculous testing and programs that do nothing to help the classroom and use the money wasted on them to provice the education needed.

  8. Pretty dramatic article.

    These people will and are winning this battle/debate !

    Why - because dumb asses on the left think the samo is enough and bama is their side.

    Look the fuck out people - this is not going to be good this coming year.

  9. Exactly.
    It is not a debate.
    It is a battle.
    A battle for humanity, and this pale blue dot that we are visiting.

    The sooner that the left recognizes this, the better off they will be.

  11. Having also come from the public school system, I can say Terry and Linda are correct. A lot of money goes to the EdBiz, not to the schools and kids. Personally I prefer neighborhood schools to monolithic school districts that require lots of fat cats. And I also agree about doing away with standardized testing, but there are already EdBiz companies gearing up to be the "one" in charge of testing to the new Common Core Standards. In the EdBiz they like to make rules, then hire people to enforce them. Kids aren't learning? Blame it on illegal aliens, that's a good tactic.

  12. What I learned at this very small school from K-6th grade carry me to this day. This rural school included 7 thru 12 as well. We need to educate this nations children and we're not doing it. Again decisions made in DC that favor corporations and ideology instead of the other.
