Do you guys know of any popular nsfw mm and wlw books? Like song of achilles romance? ♥️

I do :) Not sure how popular one needs to be to fit (though I think the bolded titles pretty safely qualify, and you can look into more by those authors), but you can make your own call on that from this list:

What if FDR lived through his 4th term?

Don’t expect a brave new world or anything like that, I think a lot of things would be very similar. FDR’s health would still be poor and the strain of the job was clearly getting to him simply from a health standpoint, so he was not going to run for a fifth term.

FDR commissioned the Manhattan Project, he would drop the bomb as surely as Truman would, and even though he called Stalin “Uncle Joe” during WWII when the U.S. and the Soviet Union were allies, the Cold War is inevitable. FDR was not going to sacrifice ties to Europe for greater ties to the Soviet Union, so I’d imagine things proceeding much as they did in our own history.

There’s still going to be a Red Scare in the United States after the loss of China, so don’t think for a second that McCarthy and Hoover aren’t going to get up to old tricks with FDR in the White House. I don’t see socialism catching on in the United States during the specter of the Cold War.

What could be drastically different would be his policy toward the armed forces and Korea. FDR wasn’t anything of the budget hawk that Truman was, so he probably would have had a much larger commitment to the UN-led forces in Korea. MacArthur still handles Inchon, but the question of whether FDR would treat differently with China, or whether China would have intervened in the Korean War all the same. I doubt FDR would let MacArthur nuke China, so I’d imagine it would be the same. 

The Presidency would still expand the scope of its powers drastically, including adopting the nuclear first-strike option as MAD and deterrence still become the prime stances of the Soviet Union and the United States. FDR had always embraced the expansion of the executive branch’s power, so I don’t see him changing that. FDR is leaving office before Khrushchev assumes the Premiership, so speculating on any foreign policy relationship between these two leaders would be pointless.

Ultimately, I do not see much in the way of changes from a foreign policy standpoint. FDR had his successor in Truman. But I would ask @racefortheironthrone for domestic policy changes, because given FDR’s focus on more domestic matters, that would be the area with the greatest potential changes.

Thanks for the question, Anon.

Matty Healy - Grand Rapids concert. Got me some photo editing software to fix some of my pix.  I think this was probably one our favorite concerts because we added it on a whim instead of going to camp out for the Chicago show.  We hauled butt up to Michigan after my daughter’s last class was out and camped out got barricade.  Was one of the coldest concert camping experiences—got down to the 20′s and frost on the tent the next morning.  The things you do for a band wink wink.

I’m a big fan of Twin Peaks, and some time ago I decided to make a series of illustrations of memorable moments from the show.
Here is a link to my Etsy shop completely dedicated to Twin Peaks art. I offer digital prints of the original art, as well as original illustrations .

Agreeing with Republicans for the wrong reasons
  • Republicans: let's make America like it was in the 50's
  • Me: I agree, let's go back to massive wealth distributions from the rich to the middle class, the highest tax bracket at that time was 91%.
  • Republicans: We don't like that.
  • Me: Oh! You must mean the huge infrastructure projects like the US Highway Act.
  • Republicans: No... we don't like that either
  • Me: aah, you must mean the strong unions that included over 50% of the US workforce.
  • Republicans: What do we look like? communists?!
  • Me: then what do you like about the 50's?
  • Republicans: Segregation & slapping waitresses' asses
  • Me: oh

Harry, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a cat nap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

In December 1945, President Harry S. Truman appointed Eleanor as a delegate to the United Nations General Assembly, and the following April, she became the first chairperson of the preliminary United Nations Commission on Human Rights, playing an important part in drafting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. She stayed on at that position until 1953.

In early 1952, she undertook a personal tour through the Middle East, southern Asia, and the Pacific from February through the end of March. She stayed in India for a month, and from that experience wrote “India and the Awakening East,” in which she celebrated India’s first general elections as an independent nation:

“Though India has far to go, she has made a determined and inspired beginning. This new democracy seems to evoke the kind of passionate devotion among its leaders that our forefathers had for the democratic government they were establishing here. Perhaps this is one of the great contributions the young democracies can make to the older ones such as ours. We have grown stale; we are inclined to take everything for granted. We find it hard to go to vote if it means we have to walk a considerable distance or if, because of the crowds, we have to stand in line to cast our ballots…”
