A convenient liberal interpretation of the recent presidential election would have it that Mr. Trump won in large part because he managed to transform economic disadvantage into racial rage — the “whitelash” thesis. This is convenient because it sanctions a conviction of moral superiority and allows liberals to ignore what those voters said were their overriding concerns. It also encourages the fantasy that the Republican right is doomed to demographic extinction in the long run — which means liberals have only to wait for the country to fall into their laps. The surprisingly high percentage of the Latino vote that went to Mr. Trump should remind us that the longer ethnic groups are here in this country, the more politically diverse they become.

Finally, the whitelash thesis is convenient because it absolves liberals of not recognizing how their own obsession with diversity has encouraged white, rural, religious Americans to think of themselves as a disadvantaged group whose identity is being threatened or ignored.

BBL|06 standings

January 4, 2017

NBCSN is showing a few Big Bash League games this season live (read: middle of the night in North America). I woulda never followed the BBL; if do bother being up at weird hours to watch Twenty20 it’s usually the Indian Premier League. But I feel like it’s my patriotic duty to support cricket in the U.S. I heard Melbourne was kind of like San Francisco and the Renegades have Trinis Dwayne Bravo and Sunil Narine, so I think I’ve found my team.

Limited Time Originals Peppermint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies vs. Oreos

December 7, 2016

So, because I’m a disgusting glutton, I bought packages of both the cookies on the prominent all-peppermint display at the grocery store, as well as from the Oreo display. I mean, ’tis the season, right?! And because pleasure must be analyzed and quantified, I shoved both in my mouth (washed down with delicious Ritchey’s Reduced Fat 1½% Chocolate Milk which beat all contenders; possibly more on this later) and weighed the results.

The box of Giant’s store brand advertises “double filled with candy cane crème filling,” and the Oreos appear to be roughly Double Stuf thickness as well. I agree with Operation Nutrition’s assessment (don’t know what a nutrition and fitness blog is doing reviewing candy cane sandwich cookies, but whatever) that the “Limited Time Orignals” store brand is actually better than Oreo’s Peppermint creme cookies. Of course the Oreos aren’t bad—they rarely are—but the candy cane crème filling in the Limited Time Originals pretty much does what it says on the tin—it tastes like a mint—whereas the filling in the Oreos tastes like peppermint-flavored Oreo filling, if that makes any sense. That is, the Oreo crème is sweeter, and tastes like the standard Oreo filling with peppermint flavor added, whereas these other sandwich cookies, perhaps freed from the strictures of preconception, just taste like a candy cane, slightly mintier than the Oreos. In addition, there are little tiny crunchy chunks of peppermint candy, which is less unpleasant than maybe it sounds.

In the end, both leave your tongue feeling a bit frosty, but back to back, I think I slightly prefer Giant/Martin’s. Of course, I wouldn’t turn down the Oreos for the holidays, but at over twice the price by weight (even with your bonus rewards card) I don’t see ever getting them for myself if the Limited Time Originals Peppermint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are around.

Notes in English on the Italian constitutional referendum

November 30, 2016

Do you approve the text of the constitutional law regarding "Provisions for surmounting equal bicameralism, reduction of the number of members of parliament, containment of institutional operating costs, elimination of the National Council for Economics and Labor and the revision of Title V of Part II of the Constitution", approved by Parliament and published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale No. 88 of April 15, 2016?

Not all Italians speak fluent Italian, especially when it comes to complex and nuanced policy discussions. So it’s been somewhat difficult to be fully participate in the conversation surrounding the upcoming referendum this weekend. But I have run across a few helpful English-language resources.

There are a couple “everything you need to know” guides—of course, though, these are mostly predicated on the idea you’re a worldly interested foreigner, not a voting citizen.

The BBC has a piece on italiani residenti all’estero—specifically British ones, of course.

Surprisingly for a pro-free-market publication you’d think would oppose anything that threatened the euro or EU membership and support anything streamlining government and cutting down on bureaucracy, but The Economist has endorsed a No vote.

I also remembered this graphic, which I ran across a while back:

ITALIA
Popolazione: 60.000.000
Senatori: 315
Deputati: 630

STATI UNITI
Popolazione: 300.000.000
Senatori: 100
Deputati: 435

Se facessimo come gli USA avremmo 20 senatori e 87 deputati.

SOLO IN ITALIA

However, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by all this, and straining your Italian skills watching Telegiornale trying to follow along, a recent survey found that 9 out of 10 Italians have not understood the upcoming referendum—and while frightening, at least we’re in good company.
