Ship of Fools (book)

Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution is a non-fiction political book written by Tucker Carlson, in which he argues that America's ruling class has failed everyday Americans. Ship of Fools was published in October 2018 before the midterm elections and is a New York Times #1 best seller. Carlson introduces his thesis by applying the allegory given in Plato's Republic, in which the US ship of state has been commandeered by an incompetent crew who are oblivious to the needs of, contemptuous of the desires of the passengers and intolerant of criticism. Contrary to what might be expected of a conservative political commentator, Carlson does not restrict his definition of the elite to liberal members of Congress, but includes politicians of both political parties, certain neoconservative pundits, modern entrepreneurs such as the CEOs of Facebook and Amazon, who he blames for decimating the American middle class and thus widening the gap between rich and poor, betraying the liberal values they profess.

While Carlson considers the Presidential election of Donald Trump to be an historical aberration, he does not count Trump among the "ship of fools" and explains his election as the passengers' desperate attempt to send a message to the mutineers. The book's cover shows caricatures of Democratic politicians Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton.

Orange chicken

Orange chicken is a Chinese dish of Hunan origin. The variety of orange chicken most found at North American Chinese restaurants consists of chopped and fried chicken pieces coated in a sweet orange-flavored chili sauce, which thickens or caramelizes to a glaze. While the dish is popular in the United States, it is most found as a variation of General Tso's chicken in North America rather than the dish found in mainland China. Chef Andy Kao claims to have developed the original Chinese-American orange chicken recipe at a Panda Express in Hawaii in 1987. Since Panda Express is associated with this dish, Panda Express uses orange chicken as a promotion tool by having a dedicated food truck tour the country distributing samples of orange chicken. Though called Chinese food in North America, orange chicken is found in Chinese restaurants in China. Andrew Cherng and founder of Panda Express, said that orange chicken is just a variation of General Tso's chicken, another dish, unknown in China. Journalist Jennifer 8.

Lee says that both "General Tso's chicken and Orange Chicken are Americanized mutations of sweet and sour dishes found in China." Orange chicken has entered the menus of the mainstream U. S. by being served in school cafeterias, in military bases' chow halls, found in the supermarket frozen meal aisle. In most countries in the western hemisphere, the names "orange chicken", "orange chicken peel", "orange flavoured chicken", "tangerine chicken" are used for this particular dish. In Chinese, this dish is known as "橙花雞" " Orange peel chicken"; the dish has a variation known as "陳皮雞" "Dried Citrus peel chicken", referring to dried orange or tangerine peel, used in traditional Chinese medicine as well as cooking. For restaurants outside of Asia, fresh orange peel is used instead, or no peel at all. Media related to Orange chicken at Wikimedia Commons
