28. His wallet clearly proves he's a good Democrat!
full list: Jeb Eddy's federal campaign contributions

He must be a Republican for local elections, 'cause nationally he sure ain't.

32. His wife is an even better Democrat

Her contributions go back to 1992: Bill Clinton, Paul Wellstone, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, and lots of other good candidates and pro choice and progressive organizations.

10. Yeah, they make me sick . . .
. . . with their donut bellies and their kevlar outfits. Those kids weren't throwing anything--least not that I've heard about. It's almost like the sheriffs are trying to provoke violence.

15. "AGENTS OF THE STATE"
It's disgusting to see them come out like that. The police have turned into a paramilitary force. There no room for that in a free society. Militaries are intended to protect FREEDOM!

for the nice SWAT/riot gear. :puke:

I love seeing the brownshirts out in full force. It lets me know I'm not delusion and all of this is really happening in this country. :sarcasm:

6. There could be blood in the streets of this country this summer
If this is any indication of what is to come. They are waking up and we are standing up.

It's a good thing ... I just hope no one has to die, a la Kent State, before we can get real change going.

38. The students are awake now
and I believe they will lead the way! :patriot:

They have the spirit and the energy to fight for their generation.

We need to get out there with them and support their efforts!

Stanford was awesome, it reminded me of the Vietnam PEACE days .
How BRAVE those students were ~ :patriot:

That is the key for these Demonstrations. We are trying to win over the hearts and minds of Republicans!

You can bet your boots that there were a lot of children of RICH Republicans out there Marching. They will turn their Moms and Daddies around - watch and see.


Let's MARCH!

53. Someone must have told them....
..that the Republicans are putting everything on the credit card, and sending the bill to them and their children.

The Students of today WILL PAY FOR:
*Republican Tax cuts for themselves and their RICH friends

*The useless Republican War on the Iraqi People

*Republican Welfare grants to the most profitable Corporations in the World

*The Right Wing propaganda campaign against the Middle Class

The Democratic Party is a BIG TENT, but there is NO ROOM for those
who advance the agenda of THE RICH (Corporate Owners) at the EXPENSE of LABOR and the POOR.

16. That just sounds bizarre to me.....
... betting that an older affluent-looking white man with a republican voting history would suddenly vote for the good guys?

I certainly HOPE you're right - and if so, I'll welcome him.

But I wouldn't bet MY money on it. Hell - I wouldn't even bet YOUR money on it - LOLOL

But then I wonder just how truthful it is to say you're a republican when you've been voting Democratic for 10 years?

35. He's also been donating to the DNC since 1998
EDDY, JEB
PALO ALTO, CA 94301
DNC SERVICES CORPORATION/DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE (D) $250
primary 09/25/98

I'm glad he now supports the good guys, but I also wonder how truthful it is to say he's a republican. How many more years will he hold that sign and when does it stop being effective?

19. SOME Republicans hate him more than Democrats do
Democrats have always known that the asshole is a liar and a gutless coward. For SOME Republicans, the last year or so has been a revelation - they feel betrayed.

44. They should - he is destroying their party as he turns this country into a
fascist state. Of course the fascists who cloaked themselves as republicans don't mind. But the republicans do.

20. Weekly demonstrations
Never happen, but it would be a better country if there were more demonstrations and less major sports games. Think of the training opportunities for the Gestapo. Apologies, but I don't know what else to call ppl outfitted like that.

police protest. Symbolic of fallen soldiers. Very interesting. Consciously done?

48. I Thought That Too Glitch Damn I Miss CA I Know That Road VERY Well
I ran the Napa Valley Marathon every year from 1990-2000. It starts in St Helena and goes 26.2 miles into Napa and ends at the high school. I wish I could have been at the protest but I left the States in 2002 and have only come back twice. I love that road and my brothers and sisters in CA.

54. Looks like the Chronicle changed the Eddy caption
"Jeb Eddy of Palo Alto voices his displeasure with the Bush Administration. Eddy, a registered Republican but Democratic donor, is a frequent protester at pro-Bush events. Chronicle photo by Michael Macor"

The freepers must have been in an uproar.
