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.

God, Gumption, and Guns served this nation well

The 7th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks just passed. We remembered that horrifying day when America was under attack. Many who never thought much about God before to beseech his protection. Prayer meetings sprung up. No one was afraid to say or post a sign, God bless America.

Our nation clung to God during those dark days. Trying times make us realize that our fate or success is not in our hands, but in God's.

Senator Obama ridiculed suffering people in Pennsylvania for clinging to their bitterness, religion, and guns. But in reflecting on our nation's history, without those 3 elements, I don't believe we would have ever become the country we are.
