So true!!

Image result for guilty until proven innocent

 

The wedding ceremony came to the point where the minister asked if anyone had anything to say concerning the union of the bride and groom.

.

The moment of utter silence was broken when a beautiful young woman carrying a child stood up. She starts walking slowly towards the minister.

The congregation was aghast – you could almost hear a pin drop.

The groom’s jaw dropped as he stared at the approaching young woman and child.

Chaos ensued.

.

The bride threw the bouquet into the air and burst out crying.

Then the groom’s mother fainted.

The best men started giving each other looks and wondering how to save the situation.

.

The minister asked the woman, “Can you tell us, why you came forward?  What do you have to say?”

.

There was absolute silence in the church.

.

The woman replied, “We can’t hear you in the back.”

.

And that illustrates what happens when people are considered guilty until proven innocent.

The  Editor:  Do you like guns, LL ?

Annie Oakley Cat:  I can’t stand them, they hurt my ears.  Amigo dispatched a couple of opossums that were eating my food.  It sure beats getting killed by opossums or raccoons.

This video is for our MSM reporters and politicians, so they can tell the difference between clips and magazines.

Here are some Second Amendment articles.  The Progressive Democrats still want all guns confiscated, except for their armed body guards.

The Demrats want America’s large cities to have NO-GO-ZONES where the police won’t go.

I hope all red-flag laws are in court, like Chick-fil-A, for violating the Constitution.  Here is why you can’t give an inch on the Second Amendment.

As always, be careful with firearms.

Today’s Accidental Invention…Potato Chips

One of American’s most popular snack foods, the potato chip was invented in 1953 by George Crum, a chef at the Moon Lake Lodge Resort in Saratoga Lake, New York, when one of his customers complained that their French-fried potatoes were too thick and mushy. As legend has it, Speck’s solution was to thinly slice and fry some potatoes until brown, and the patrons loved what was to become the first-ever batch of chips.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

The Iris Nebula in a Field of Dust
Image Credit & Copyright: Markus Bauer

Explanation: These cosmic dust clouds drift some 1,300 light-years away along the fertile starfields of the constellation Cepheus. The beautiful Iris Nebula, also known as NGC 7023, blossoms at the upper left. Not the only nebula in the sky to evoke the imagery of flowers, its pretty, symmetric form spans about 6 light-years. This nebula’s dominant blue color is characteristic of the pervasive dust grains reflecting light from a nearby hot, bluish star. But darker, obscuring dust clouds cover most of the nearly 4 degree wide field of view. At the right is the LDN 1147/1158 complex of Lynds Dark Nebulae. Stars are forming there, still hidden within the dark cloud cores. A search through the sharp image can identify Herbig-Haro objects though, jets of shocked glowing gas emanating from recently formed stars.
