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.

Channelling Alberto

I assume this is true.

Drone strikes on Americans on U.S. soil are LEGAL, says confidential Justice Department memo.

More importantly and even worse -

The U.S. government can do so even if there is no clear evidence that the American targeted is engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S. 

There will be little opposition from Congress about this and sure as hell none from the bama cuz because he is the Droner in Chief.

Are you proud of your country because I sure as hell am not. bama and the chimp are one in the same when it comes to killing!

I'm so sick of this shit.

  1. I agree completely with what you've said here. Goosestepping to the left is as insane as it is to the right. People are following Obama like he can do no wrong and I'm having trouble seeing what he's done that's so right. And by right, I mean moral, ethical, and good for the world.

  2. And I meant to add: I don't know when I've disliked a politician/ public servant more than Alberto Gonzales. What a slimy bastard he was.

  4. I understand that AK-47s are more effective than Patriot missiles in shooting down drones.

  5. Of course yes! People want to believe so badly. Can we just have something go our way for a change. Like the filibuster. It was never going to happen and this was going to happen for sure.

  6. If this was proposed during the Bush regime you would never hear the end of it from the liberal blogosphere but I guess since it's a democrat president we had better not make a fuss about it. I do get upset about a lot of what Obama does and doesn't do as president but he was the lesser of two evils so...

  8. Obama has never closed Gitmo yet he has never sent anyone there. He kills his enemies instead, regardless of the number, now in the hundreds, of innocents killed with these people.His collateral damage makes him immoral as hell.

    Saying he is the lesser of two evils is a bullshit argument and isn't true on many issues. He continues so many of the horrible Bush era tactics and actually has his AG fight for them in court....so don't tell me he is a nice, moral man..he isn't. Voting for him on that reasoning(lesser of two evils) is complete and utter crap. If you have a soul and a conscience, you would of voted for a third party individual or refuse to vote period....which I don't suggest as voting is an important right we need to consider a duty in my opinion.

  9. Tom, this line: Are you proud of your country because I sure as hell am not. bama and the chimp are one in the same when it comes to killing! really says a lot. I am sick of people telling me to support Obama and his killing or how about the fact that he has sent more undocumented immigrants back than Bush ever did? No I am not proud of our country and I wonder how the stooges at the Nobel Peace Prize board feel now after giving him one when he was first elected.

  11. You said all that was on my mind but better Dusty. Just sick of it and I just don't think we're wrong on this. This drone thing here will become a monster over a period of time. I believe in Due Process I very much do. It really doesn't make shit bit of difference because we'll never get our way anyway.

    Ya the peace prize bull shit. I wouldn't have the nerve to show my face in public after that.
