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.


Trial Time

Let's bring it on. It appears there is enough evidence already for the prosecution to present their case and get a conviction.

I do not believe for a second the founding fathers envisioned these mass killing scenarios perpetrated by one person or possibly with an accomplice. 

This country kills citizens deemed dangerous by one man without due process and hardly a voice is raised.

The defense will have their chance to present their side of what and why this man needed to kill and maim as he did.

A jury of his peers will determine whether his defense is enough to find him innocent or guilty at some level.

If it's a guilty verdict the punishment will be metered out accordingly.

From my perspective with horror stories like this one in Aurora I believe fast tracking these cases is important for obvious reasons at least for me.

Don't give a shit one iota about this killer - what his momma thinks or how smart or nice he was or what have you. Can the prosecution prove beyond a shadow of doubt this man was the shooter.

If so trial time.

Two things - there can be a very quick trial without the defendants rights being violated. By swift but fair justice these wannabe killers or newbie wannabe mass killers will learn they will not be in the limelight for very long at all - if they are guilty of mass murder.

It is and can be that simple and it should be so those touched by this can move on with their lives without continual bullshit from Big Whore Media that for the most part will not add much to the discussion than what is already known.


  1. Thinkin you know my views on the media!!!

    1. Not many agree with me TMoon. Media played it's part in this as well.

    1. I will find out what brand this guy is. There were two of them.

  3. How do you legally amass an arsenal of assault weapons and thousands of rounds of ammo and get them into a theatre? First step - move to America.

    Or to Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, or any other number of failed states.

    Which says something about the U S of A today, but not something pleasant.
