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.

Obama speech

 Where was Al Frespoonsibley,ore in al of this or the subject of Globval warming for that matter? Since when are Dembocrats in favor of nuclear, coal (clean or otherwisxe) natural gas? the 10 year challenge, ala JFK, is a fantasy . Where are the environmentalissts in all of this? They did not want any type of carbon based fuels. I could hear

get out of iraq  respojnsibly, that was Bush's stance and MCcCains all along, wasn't it?

Really unfair, lowdown cut was to Pres. Bush and Katrina. It is the local governemt and state that act first THEN the federal govt. steps in. I hope  

He said he would end govt programs that don't work. When was the last time anyone said a program did not work? Only the Bush taxcuts were in jepordy of expiring! He says he would end unfunctioning programs yet calls for a increase in prekindergarten, even though that is proven to have no  lasting bewnefits. He aslo says he would help with college. We already have some more affordable college opportunities. Our Technical college system is very affordable and credits can transfer to other schools. Our state schools especially the smaller ones are fairly affordable too. Trouble is, many Freshmen and Sophomores don't want to do the practical  thing, but want what they want now. We ahve scholarships and grants and low cost loans. It is not the taxpayers responsibility to provide college!

Notice how he also said we should pay teachers more. and we should invest in education.We already spend the majority of our money on public educaton. It seems wherever we travel, be it a rather run down, troubled small town or thriving city, the high schools are the largest and newedst building in townn.
