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.

UPDATE: See local news coverage links at the bottom of posting.

The following came to my email in-box from Americas for Prosperity:

...If you have attended a Taxpayer Tea Party, you know the excitement when surrounded by hundreds, sometimes thousands, of like-minded citizens who are trying to tell our elected officials, "Enough is Enough!"

It is time to show Washington and Madison  how powerful the premiere grassroots organization of Americans for Prosperity - Wisconsin has become!

Join us and our incredible line-up of speakers on Saturday, September 19th, at Veterans Park on the lake front of Milwaukee from 3:00 - 5:00 pm.

We have added the Rock Star of Radio - Vicki McKenna, along with James T. Harris, WTMJ, and Pat Snyder, WSAU, to our line up. We will have more exciting speakers to announce! Watch your email and our web site for updates.

The event is free, but please register at so we can get an estimate of how many will attend. Invite your friends to register, too!

We encourage you to register and to forward this email to your list of friends. Everyone is eligible to be chosen for two round trip tickets, hotel accommodations and registration to our 3rd Annual Defending the American Dream Summit  to be held in Washington, D.C. on October 2nd and 3rd. The scholarship winners will be announced on our web site.

UPDATE: I probably would have gone for "tea" on Sept. 19, but I was out of town. Americans for Prosperity posted a number of YouTube and article links so you can at least get a flavor of the day.
