Today is a day I celebrate Life……It’s my Birthday……

Date posted: December 4, 2012

Today is my Birthday! 

I would like to thank God for my life and for the many incredible blessings and special friends and family he has given me.

I have posted this same blog for the last several years on my Birthday but this year is special. I just got the news today that my Mother who was diagnosed with lung cancer and had surgery last week to have it removed got her test results back and she has a clean bill of health. The cancer was confined and they got it. She does not have to go through chemo. Blessings truly are abundant. So today again I thank God for all the incredible blessings in my life and for answered prayer and for LIFE!!

Life~ I wrote the below blog post in Nov. 2009 Why be Catholic? With all the corruption in the Catholic Church………

Woody and Netsie Huggins

In it I wrote about the fact that if it were not for the teachings of the Catholic Church I would not be here today. You see both of my parents grew up Catholic and are very devout. That does not mean they are perfect or pious and those of you who know them can attest to that. As a matter of fact, I don’t ever remember them saying they were. They just tried to live life and be good parents and good Catholics. I told my Mom how blessed she was that after trying for a girl all those times and having boys she finally got her girl. Well she told me that it was not because they were trying for a girl that I was born, it was that the rhythm method did not work that time.

You see that is how I know for sure I am a true gift from God, he planned it not my parents. It was because they were faithful Catholics, they saw my birth as that as well, A blessing from God. No matter how hard it was I was still a blessing.

For that I am forever grateful.

Kind of like Gianna Jensen says….”I’m his girl” Just like Gianna I can hear God call my name. What a blessing!

In the Huggins home life was not always easy but my Mom and Dad had the faith and knowledge to know that they took a vow to each other and with Christ in the “Sacrament of Marriage”. Through good times and bad, sickness and in health they would be together. That is the teaching of the Catholic Church and they lived it and still do to this day.

And after 50+ years this is the home they have built on earth.

So today I give praise and thanksgiving to God for my family. It is through my parents that I have been given life and taught to build my home here on earth.

My prayer is that through the Grace of God this “Catholic in Progress” will as the great theologian Denver Moore says..”work my way toward home.”

I have no idea what religion Denver Moore is but what I know with all my heart and soul, just as I am “God’s Girl” Mr. Moore is “God’s Boy”. Life is not easy but when we allow God to lead us we will find our way home.

Burleson and Denton County Tea Party~ Thank you for giving me HOPE now let’s work hard and make the Change!

Date posted: September 28, 2012

I had the honor of speaking this week to the Burleson Patriots Tea Party and the Denton Republican Tea Party. I always come a way with a new sense of hope after speaking to people I know are engaged and ready to do what ever it takes to save our State and our Country. 

 Knowledge is Power, Americans across this country are ready to face reality and fight the good fight. 

I wanted to give you links and information that I discussed during these two meetings. I hope you are encouraged to go out and share this information with your friends and neighbors. The Power of Compounding Activists~ 

Here is what you can do to make a difference~ 

Join Women across America and take a STAND 

I Pledge to STAND On the WALL with Women Across America~ 

Click Photo to Join Women all across the nation to STAND!

WomenOnTheWall.Org Pledge is motivated by a single issue: National Security threats that face our nation both foreign and domestic. The Obama Administration has gone out of its way to create a security environment that threatens America and Israel for future generations to come. Based on polling provided by Secure America Now in battleground states women consider national security a “High Priority” yet the Romney and RNC narrative on national security is still lacking, if they cannot we must in order to get Romney elected. 

Women On The Wall will fill that vacuum with a powerful, call to action for Women across America to come together to form a wall of security around our Nation to protect our children and grandchildren. “Women On The Wall” is where women all across America will unite and pledge to educate ourselves and others on the serious national security threats our nation faces. We pledge to educate fellow Americans to insure that we will not fall prey to elected leaders and Administrations that do not have America’s best interest at heart.

 
We will ask women to Join with Us and take their place on the Wall and help secure and save America for generations to come. We ask men join us by lifting us up onto the wall. Together we can make a difference!  
 
 
1. Do You Pledge to take time to educate yourself on the serious national security threats our nation faces so that we can protect our country for future generations?
2. Do You Pledge to share information you find about National Security threats America faces with your friends and neighbors?
3. Do You Pledge to ask other women of all faiths, colors and political backgrounds across America to join us on the wall? 
 
 
Why is the Narrative so Important? This is the one issue that can bring women of all faiths, colors and political backgrounds together to fight for America. This is not a Republican issue or a Democratic issue it is an American issue. Obama is fundamentally changing the safety and security of America and our allies to an extent we may not recover from unless he is removed from office. In order to accomplish that the American people must be educated on the issue of National Security and the threats we face.WOMEN must STAND together now and demand a safe and secure nation for our families to live and thrive in.
 
Click Here to Stand with us to protect our children, America’s founding principles, and our sovereignty.

VIDEO: SMU Alumnae Blast Leftist Panel, Sandra Fluke at Alma Mater

“One noteworthy questioner was Virginia Prodan, a Dedman (SMU) Law School graduate and immigrant from the former Soviet Republic of Romania. Prodan shared her story to the panel and others about how she had witnessed the fallout from government intervention in areas like health care during her time in Romania.” 
(By the way Virginia Prodan happens to be one an amazing woman in my book)

WOW~ Texas Speaker Joe Straus makes even David Dewhurst look conservative. Maybe that is why Grassroots/Tea Party folks are wanting to replace Joe Straus as Speaker of the Texas House! Here is a video that might explain why people are voicing their opinion to their local State Rep.’s who will be voting on who the Speaker will be  and saying it is time for a #SpeakerShowdown in January.

Romney Did It; Now Obama Needs To Do It

Date posted: September 23, 2012

By Donna Garner  

As of yesterday (9.21.12), Mitt Romney has released his 2011 income tax returns.  They were certified by Price Waterhouse Coopers, LLP.  

Romney’s tax returns indicate that he paid an effective tax rate of 14.1% in 2011.  He also released a summary of tax rates for the last 20 years (1990 – 2009) which showed he paid an average annual effective federal tax rate of 20.2% even though Harry Reid stood on the floor of the Senate and in defiance of Senatorial decorum, committed character assassination by accusing Romney of not paying any taxes for 10 years.  Harry Reid never produced one shred of evidence to back up his claim.  Harry Reid lied!

Romney’s release also showed that he paid $4,020,772 to charities in 2011.  By adding the total federal and state taxes plus the amount he gave to charities, the figure is $38.49% of his annual gross income.

 Romney gave 13.45% of his adjusted gross income to charities over 20 years.  

 In contrast, Obama gave less than 7% to charities (2000-2011).

 That means Romney gave almost twice as much to charities than did Obama.

 “Okay, Mr. President. Romney has been more than transparent about releasing his tax returns.  Now it is time for you to release your records.  You know, the ones that you should have released before you were allowed to run for your first public office – the records that the rest of us would have had to produce before being hired for a job, before being admitted into any college or university, before being allowed to receive Social Security benefits, or before being allowed to get a travel visa.  

 We certainly could not have received a Top Secret security clearance without releasing the following personal records.  How did you get a Top Secret security clearance to handle the most sensitive security issues known to man?  In fact, how did you get yourself elected to the White House?  Was it because you spent some $5 Million to hide your past from the American people so that they would be fooled into electing you?”

 It IS PAST TIME FOR OBAMA TO PRODUCE THE FOLLOWING PERSONAL RECORDS!

…“vault copy of original birth certificate, kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.

BRYAN HUGHES DEFENDS WOOD COUNTY AND THE CONSTITUTION

Date posted: September 15, 2012

By Jan Shedd

Bryan Hughes has announced that he will be running against Joe Straus for Speaker of the House.  The Kaufman County Tea Party supports his campaign, and will assist him in any way we can. After reading this, you will see why.

(Mineola) – Today Bryan Hughes commented on a recent lawsuit which was filed against Wood County, his home county in East Texas.
 
The Wood County Commissioner’s Court is being sued for its prayer before meetings and for the words “In God We Trust” on the courtroom wall.  
 
The lawsuit claims that these actions are unconstitutional.  Representative Hughes in his capacity as a private attorney is working with the Liberty Institute to defend the County in the case. 
Watch the KLTV 7 story here.  
 
“The constitution is clear. Wood county is absolutely operating within its legal rights in both the prayer to begin the commissioners court and in having “In God We Trust” in the courtroom,” said Hughes.  
 

Click Photo to see Video of Bryan Hughes.

“Especially with what’s going on in the Middle East right now, I am so thankful to live in a place where we enjoy freedom of religion, free speech, and where we settle our disputes peacefully and under the rule of law.”
  
Hughes commented on his unique role as a lawyer and a member of the Texas House of Representatives saying, “It’s not every day you get to go to work and defend the constitution. I’m blessed to have two jobs, one as an attorney and one as a State Representative where I am given the opportunity to stand for principles that make our nation great.”
 
Bryan Hughes has represented Texans in the State House for nearly a decade. He is also an attorney with a civil practice in Mineola. More information regarding Bryan Hughes can be found at here.

Suggest you send an appreciation note to Mr. Hughes.

 Texas Values will prevail.

Texas Values ~ State Rep. Bryan Hughes gets it, his work shows it.

Date posted: September 11, 2012

Many will remember the last battle in East Texas to defend God. 

East Texas Churches and the Tea Party Work Together for Freedom of Religion 

5,000 strong showed up in Athens, Texas this afternoon to tell a small group of Atheists from Wisconsin who felt the need to come to Texas to take down a town’s Christmas Nativity Scene, “Don’t Mess With Texas!!”

What is the biggest threat to the liberal left? 

Americans of all faiths and backgrounds coming together to fight for Freedom, especially freedom of religion.  

Below you will see what Texas State Rep. Bryan Hughes does when he is not representing his constituents at the Capital in Austin. He is still representing~

An East Texas county is calling for a decision to be made in a lawsuit one resident filed against them.

Wood County Commissioner’s Court is being sued by a Hawkins resident. That resident says the court’s prayer before meetings and the words “In God We Trust” written on the courtroom wall are unconstitutional. 

“The [United States] Supreme Court says it’s ok. Most importantly, the constitution says it’s ok and the county is doing it right,” says Bryan Hughes, one of the attorneys representing the county in the case.

In a 22-page motion, Wood County’s attorneys say the constitution is clear. They say both the “In God We Trust” display, and their routine prayer, are constitutional.

The prayer is something the county has been doing for 27 years. Hughes says the country has been doing it since day one.

“To come now and say it’s unconstitutional, when it has been part of our history since even before our constitution, the very men who wrote the constitution participated in prayer opening legislative bodies,” Hughes says.

WOOD COUNTY, TX (KLTV) –An East Texas county is calling for a decision to be made in a lawsuit one resident filed against them. Many know that in Texas Tea Party/Grassroots folks all across the state are working together to clean out the Texas establishment. State Rep. Bryan Hughes is known across the state as one of the good guys. As we say in Texas he wears a white cowboy hat. As our friend Ray Meyers talks about in the video below. It is Texas Values that will prevail.
