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.


Colorado Repug Nazi Bastards

I will let Progress Now frame this. My point is that no matter where you are at as a Repuglican only the extreme right position is allowed. Any deviation from that will be dealt with. Even though you harbor a unregistered sex offender and say yourself you can't smile. If you want to see the prick who can't smile you can go here.

The Whites are good people and Republican. That does not fly in these times.

Across the state, what moderate Republicans, not to mention progressives, describe as the worst-case scenario has taken place. On the Western Slope, a moderate Republican Senator, Jean White, was hounded from office for daring to vote in favor of civil unions legislation supported by the vast majority of the public. The man who defeated her, Rep. Randy Baumgardner, helped lead the obstruction against civil unions in the House this year, and was richly rewarded by out-of-state conservative attack groups who funded a smear campaign against Sen. White. The push to defeat Sen. White after her brave vote was so great that Baumgardner won despite revelations about an unregistered sex offender living in his home.


  1. Whaaaaat??? Did I read this correctly???

  2. Yes you did. These people are half nuts but this is where we are at.

  3. Just half??? What's wrong??? Does nobody really study issues/candidates or do they just vote (as you call it) repugs?

  4. At this time the only position repuglicans have is the Tbagger side which is actually what they have morphed into. And proud of it too.
