carbon fibre can be a homosocial surface; that is, carbon fibre becomes both a surface extension of the self and a third-party mediator in homosocial relationships

Koch Bros switch to Hillary

After famously supporting or creating the Tea Party Movement during the Obama years, the allegedly “libertarian” Koch Brothers now have switched to Hillary.

Which makes me wonder: What will Beck and Dana Loesch and Ben Shapiro now say that it’s Hillary or Trump? They gotta somehow deliver an explanation for fighting Trump now that the only opponent is Hillary. Or will they all switch to a Barista career?
