My brother Steve and I used to talk politics..
I have a few of them, (Brothers) but THIS particular brother and I disagreed more often than not on issues of the national political stage, policies, and who might be best for leadership. Its was a discussion over George Bush in 2003 that had our wives (watching nearby) fearing a fist fight. Several adult beverages, and a few hours of heated discussion never brought the violence our mates had expected. And we remain as always willing to pick up such discussions, and love each other as brothers do. Family is good. Especially family that can disagree to the point where blood pressures are up, yet peace will prevail in the end.
The reason I mention this is twofold; to illustrate that we can have disagreements and still carry on strong family/professional relationships, and to point out that I would still tell a brother where to stick a suggestion that I donate to ANYONE in that freak show called the Democrat party! I might even tell him to wrap it in broken glass and salted tinfoil for good measure first.
And I suspect he would respect that.

This particular list is a reason that Bobby Schostak ought not be the Republican Party chair for Michigan.
Democrat LAURENCE DEITCH received $2000 from each of the Schostak Brothers in his re-election for regent.
In 2008. Why?
One thing that has become clear in the last couple of years is that pandering to the other side brings nothing but misery. Seeding the other side with financial resources makes it harder for OUR guys to succeed. Does it ultimately matter if the chair is a good fundraiser, if our donations go to fight the beast he has fed in the past?
Consider this merely a start of a fact based critique.
