Posts by Patti Barnett Terrell

Politichick State Director of Texas, Patti Terrell has conservative roots which grow deep in the heart of East Texas. She has a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from 1977 proving (in her opinion) that she was “a nerd when being a nerd wasn’t cool”. Her career path continued in that direction and she recently retired from her position as the civilian director of a large Army Information Technology organization. She and her husband had the honor of working for former Governor Mike Huckabee in one of his reelection campaigns by photographing fund raisers. . She most enjoyed meeting the late, great actor and political activist Charlton Heston when he was campaigning for the Governor. For her most recent birthday her husband gave her “dinner with Allen West”. The ensuing article she wrote was picked up by Col. West’s web site as well as several other conservative sites and viewed by thousands. She is active in her local area by working elections and attending local “meet and greet” political events. She is a huge advocate of the 2nd amendment, is rarely unarmed, and has strong opinions re gun control laws. Patti lives in Texarkana, TX with her husband of over 30 years (Larry), and 2 dogs who think they are people too. Patti loves to travel, see new places, meet new people and learn new things but “Texas will always be home.”

Veteran: “I never imagined America could have the worst leader in the free world…”

Recently I attended a gun show near my home in Texas. It was nice to be among like-minded people who understand that the 2nd amendment is not just a suggestion. It was also frightening to be among the same kindred spirits who reiterate these radical thoughts that run through my […]

Earlier this week, Texas governor Rick Perry was seen in Sacramento, CA, driving an electric Tesla Model S Sedan. His intent was clear and not very subtle. He wants to continue wooing businesses from the Golden State to the Lone Star state and in fact, to use a Texas colloquialism, he […]

When a society becomes at risk for a takeover by communism the first thing that happens is government interference in areas that should be left to the people.  The interference usually starts with special interest groups and spreads from there.  In order to obtain more control the government must find […]

This afternoon I was speaking with a close friend who mentioned that her daughter and son-in-law had seen the movie Noah and they in fact were entertained.  What a novel thought; imagine that, going to a movie simply to be entertained. I am a Conservative Christian woman who has lived […]

Lt. Col. Allen West – A Man Who Believes in America

Seeing Allen West in person, the first thing I noticed was his normalcy.  He is a nice looking, well dressed, middle-aged man with an unassuming presence…until he speaks.  That is when he becomes larger than life.  I was fortunate to be one of the first few people that he spoke […]

Watching this video reminds me that every day is Veteran’s Day, not just the one day in November that we set aside to honor our Vets. The great men and women who put their lives on the line for this great country should always be treated with respect and honor. […]

Christmas makes me think of meatloaf.  Okay, so my family is weird.  But my Aunt Edna could make the best meatloaf ever and she made at least 10 lbs worth every Christmas.  You see my maternal grandmother outlived 4 husbands so my mom has 6 biological brothers and sisters and […]

“That boy has a whole lot of quit in him” is a quote recently made famous by comedian Ron White and one I have actually heard most of my life. It seems many of our Senators and Representatives have a “whole lot of quit in them”. They quit representing “We […]

Barter:  to exchange goods and/or services without a standard medium of exchange such as currency. As a child, did you ever swap a toy to a friend for one of their toys or maybe even give them an apple from your lunchbox for their chocolate chip cookie?  If so, then […]

Do you remember what you were doing when you heard that the first tower had been hit? Do you remember knowing that it was not an accident but wanting so much for it to be one? Do you remember watching the second plane hit and knowing in your heart that […]

A friend recently shared an article on Facebook that gave me pause. While scrolling through my timeline, the title “Obama Announces Plan to forgive all Student Loans” caught my eye. My first thought was “then someone needs to refund the money I paid back when I had a student loan!” […]
