Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

The 4th Branch of Govt. Trumps All

EPA decision last year, 5-4 on 2nd amendment, 

Why do they move left? Do they love power more than anything? Kennedy like the limelight of media, how will he vote this time? Do egos get in the way of good decisions?

Roosevelt added to the court in an attempt to stack the vote deck. There is no restriction on how many justices there are. 

"With O'Connor now retired, Kennedy is widely considered to be the court's "swing vote." But increasingly, Kennedy's decisions are viewed as activist liberal votes. He wrote the majority opinion in the aforementioned Lawrence vs. Texas sodomy case. He voted with the liberal majority in the outrageous ruling of Kelo vs. City of New London, in which the Connecticut town was allowed to use eminent domain laws to seize property from one private owner and hand it over to another simply because the new owner could pay more in property taxes.
