Your voter status doesn’t matter to these people, they will attack for no reason.
Gay SNP councillor Austin Sheridan has been subjected to an unprovoked attack simply because he is a gay man who voted yes.
Homes have been broken into.
There are riots on the streets even outside of Glasgow.
The BNP, UKIP, Britain First and The Orange Lodge are attacking peaceful protestors with flares.
LGBT people are being singled out by the above groups.
DON’T LET THIS ABHORRENT SITUATION CONTINUE.

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
Folks gotta realize that finding a “cure” for degenerative illnesses doesn’t one hit KO the effects of the disease from the lives of people who suffer from it. Stopping a disease before it can do extensive damage to otherwise healthy people who have only recently been diagnosed is one thing, reversing extensive tissue damage in the neurons of people who have been living with it for quite a while is something else completely. For the people who are already in an advanced stage of the illness, funding that goes towards improving their quality of life is so much more beneficial than a cure.
It’s not the same thing as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, but my mom and brother both have Multiple Sclerosis. My mom’s had it since before I was born, my brother was diagnosed within the last five years. My mom hasn’t been able to walk since I was three, and you wouldn’t know my brother had anything wrong with him at all right now. Funding that goes into finding a cure for MS is important because the years of medical advances have completely changed how the disease will effect my brother compared to how it effected my mom, but if they came out with a cure tomorrow my mom would still not be able to walk. Funding for MS that goes towards concerns of mobility, community, and comfort is important for people who have and will continue to live with the disease regardless of what the status of a “cure” is.
if u are scared or worried or stressed please just remember that even if you mess up super badly, doggies on the street will still tug on their owners when u walk by because they wanna say hello to u so badlyThis is legitimately comforting.

Good morning from Millie and Houdini! He’s feeling more active today. He’s still a little wobbly on his legs, but that didn’t stop him from running around and playing.
Cheetah and Puppy Playtime: Part II
Meet baby Houdini.
Despite being a little early, baby Houdini is rather healthy. My boss will be leaving me some shots to give to him and Millie tomorrow. I gave him an enema, checked his temp, and washed his naval. So hopefully he’ll stay a happy healthy baby! Not sure when he was born, but the horses were running around freaking out so I went to check on them and found him with Millie. I’ve isolated them in our pasture by themselves.
I knew she was pregnant! Congratulations on the new surprise-baby, I’m glad both him and Millie are doing well. Looks like he might be the same colour as his mom (if he stays that way).
Tell Oakley to be kind to his new baby brother.
Oakley was licking him and being a sweet big brother. Dixie, Lily, and Oakley are all a little tore up about her and Houdini being separated from them. I’m kind of curious now, cause one of the studs in the pasture with Millie before I got her was a grey roan. Perhaps he’s the daddy? Who knows, Houdini gets his shot (Tetanus for clarification) tomorrow, and I’m going out and checking on him literally every 5 minutes haha
