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.


Braniacs Confirm What's Been Know For Decades

And this is supposed to be fucking news!

Laws against cannabis have failed to cut its use around the world and have led to policies that are intrusive, socially divisive and expensive. "Prohibitionist policies not only fail to meet their objectives but have inflicted significant social harms in the process,"

If you fuckers have all the answers why aren't you writing and screaming at the whored out politicians to stop this insanity called the "Drug War"? They are the ones responsible for this decades old debacle. Tens of millions are not criminals and never should have been classified as such but this shit still continues.

Please can we have some common sense here! Think we're going to get this changed anytime soon?

Forget about it and the fact of the matter is that it probably going to get worse.


  1. I'm with you.

    It's such an easy target for people who can't shoot (or think) straight.

    Thanks for reminding the world about what is really going on.


  2. Thanks Suzan. I understand there's a bunch of bitching and moaning that goes on here and that won't change much. But years of the same with no change and with time running out nice is over. People should know this this and been demanding change as we have . It's not going to be allowed. I do despise those who can make the change for not doing so or at least trying or how about a discussion. Not going to happen not even the discussion.

  3. It's the Revenue from seizures and fines and kickbacks and political contributions from the Prison Guard Unions. Los Angeles City Council is shutting down drug dispenseries- Take the time to understand the Prison-Industial Complex from the building of prisons to the staffing, etc. Remember: The U.S. has 5% of the world's population but 23.5% of the world's prisoners. What the Fascists cannot monopolize thru Selected corporations they punish thru the Police State apparatus. It's just good business policy. Savvy??? If you likes the cops you're go to love the next 20 years.

  4. Good Luck with using Academic Peer Reviewed studies to get anything thru Congress or the State Legislatures. The shelves of entire buildings in University cities are filled with great ideas, collecting dust. Politicians don't like smart people they like money.

  5. Camperrunamok - you are absolutely correct. This war on drugs BS has consumed countless resources (both people and money) and yet we are no closer to solving this problem than we were 30 years ago. (Once again, thank you, Raygun.) Make it legal, regulate it and tax it. That way we have money coming in, instead of going out.
