The state of Texas just had a massive shoot-out, not at the OK Corral, but at a restaurant in Waco. Hundreds of Bikers had gathered together to settle some scores and the end result was nine dead Bikers and a few dozen wounded ones. So, what is now needed in the state of Texas? A new law that allows guns to be carried in an open holster! Texas State Senator Craig Estes has introduced a bill that soon will be law. It allows those who have the right to carry a concealed gun now to be allowed to carry an open holstered handgun. Senator Estes made clear: “We all were horrified art what happened in Waco,” but he is certain that this bill would not have made “any difference with that lawless bunch of people.”
As I recall, in the old days of the West, cowboys had to check their guns with the sheriff if they came to town. As I recall, cowboys and gunmen were NOT allowed to carry their guns in the open or concealed when they came to town. How about going back to the lawless days of the old West?
I do understand that Texans fear the arrival of aliens and the black alien in the White House.

For decades the work of Burmese leader, Aung San Suu Kyi has been heralded for her bravery in fighting against the Army leaders who controlled her nation of Myanmar. She was even given a Nobel prize for her brave stand against oppression. Articles and books have been written about this noble figure who single-handedly stood up against tyranny and was rewarded when the generals finally decided to create conditions that are leading to a democratic Myanmar. But, something strange has happened along the way for this brave woman. She has become a silent witness to horror occurring within her nation.
The vast majority of people in Myanmar are Buddhists. But, along the coast of northwestern Burma are a million people known as Rohingyas who are Muslims. They drifted into Myanmar a century ago and lived at the lower level of Burmese society. However, during the past few years Buddhist priests along with the government have viciously attacked these people leading to the deaths of hundreds and the loss of homes for over 200,000 people. Now, thousands have taken to the sea in hope of finding refuge in a neighboring Muslim nation.
However, Ms.Aung San Suu Kyi has remained silent during this horror of violence. A Malaysian leader now asks: “Where is Aung Suu Kyi, the so-called world champion of human rights? What is she doing? Whyis she silent on the Rohingya issue?” There is nothing but silence from the human rights leader? Why?
