About this Blog
This Blog is for Conservatives and Christian activists. I cover topics that the Liberals and atheists don’t want to hear or talk about.
My name is Brian Hughes and I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I grew up Catholic in a blue collar household of mostly Democrats. I am a visual artist and went to college for Graphic Design. I am and always will be a Steelers fan, that’s right, we got 6 rings! I love sports and played Soccor, Baseball, Football and Golf all throughout my school career.
I worked in the restaurant industry for 11 years from age 14 to 25 and worked my way up from a dishwasher to a kitchen manager. I worked for a film company out of Hollywood, CA for a summer and worked on the set of Diabolique. I didn’t get to meet Sharon Stone but I did get to empty a bathtub that she was in for one of the scenes. Me and the other guys joked about drinking the water. Nope, didn’t do it.
After the blizzard of 2003, I purchased a round trip plane ticket to Miami,FL for a vacation and never went back. I went down to visit a friend for the Winter Music Conference. I found a place to live and decided to leave the restaurant industry to pursue a career in sales. I worked my way up from being a Fronter in a phone room selling POS Terminals and as a Locator for Internet Kiosks, to working for Royal Caribbean as an inbound Guest Vacation Specialist (booked cruises for people that called in), to being one of the top Pharmaceutical inside sales reps in the Country for 6 years.
I met my wife in the Pharmaceutical industry when she became my customer, one of my favorites obviously. She was a Pharmacy technician at a Hospital in Houston, TX and took over for the Pharmacy buyer. I loved her Texas accent and called everyday to hear it and she actually answered the phone every time. We got married at the Venetian Las Vegas on a Gondola in the canal.
We have 5 beautiful kids, I inherited her 2 son’s Devin – 12 and Daniel – 11. We have 3 kids together, Zoey – 5, Connor – 3 and Joseph – 1. My wife has been homeschooling the 3 oldest and is such and amazing mother, homeschool teacher and wife! Our youngest son was born with Spina Bifida, so we face challenges with that. Joey is our little miracle because when my wife was 20 weeks pregnant he was diagnosed with Spina Bifida. The Specialist tried coercing us into getting an abortion but our faith was stronger than anything he could say. We have become passionately pro-life and very active in our communities local women’s crisis center.
I am a born again Christian and active in our Church. I serve in an outreach music ministry through our Church called SWEET JESUS. I also serve in recovery ministry and help people overcome addictions. I love evangelizing and ministering to people. I am addicted to studying the Bible and theology. I am always praying for revival in our community and in our Nation.
I have been unemployed since April of 2011 and in that duration I started a company called Integrity Marketing and Consulting and really love what I do. Due to very poor working conditions, bad business practices, hostility, religious discrimination, false accusations and degradation of character I resigned from my position selling Pharmaceuticals at a company I helped build up. As a result I was sued based on the premise of false accusations and forced by the State of Florida to not work in my field for 6 months. I call it Corporate bullying! Instead of complaining and “occupying” something, I reinvented my self as a professional. I found that I loved doing SEO and Internet Marketing and was fairly decent at it on a voluntary scale. I took the bull by the horns and began to peruse the skill on a Professional level. I learned most of what I know from SEOmoz, Search Engine Land and SEOBook but especially Rand Fishkin and the folk at SEOmoz…You guys ROCK!
I am a grass roots Bible believing gun owning Conservative who loves God and Country. I love studying American History and helping spread the awareness of our true history, not the one the Liberal/Progressive agenda is rewriting. I have a passion to help raise awareness of political issues that affect us as Christians and as American citizens. I am a member of the Tea Party Fort Lauderdale and active in a Ministry at one of our local Church’s called Faith Forum. I am looking to get more active in our local REC to make a difference. I hope to see you in the trenches. May God bless you richly.
