Uh huh.
Even if this whole thing was funded by Castro it wouldn't change the goal of the people. The people out there protesting aren't having communist agenda and money funneled down to them, they are out there for their own beliefs each one of them.
You guys with your socialist communist fear are so laughable.
Back in the day you would have been that guy that had lucille ball blacklisted.

Downtown echos with the sound of protest chants and drumming.


"Banks got bailed out, we got sold out!!"




Still waiting on my press credentials, piano

Another one who doesn't get it or is purposely ignorant. The organizers are communist, the people who show up are just sheeple, they can be anything it doesn't matter because the organizers are communist therefore the whole thing is communist. The only successful outcome it could concievably have is communist because the ones who control this movement are communist. Follow the money and who organizes.


I'm not communist.

Seems to me calling everyone who is protesting the 1% screwing us is ignorant... is the ignorant one.

I don't give a darn if labor unions, communists, hippies, or anyone else is joining the protest.

The people are feed up so quit blaming it on "communists".


It's not about who's joining it , they are powerless sheeple. It is all about who organizes these events and holds all the power and money to do these things, and they are all communist organizations.

Blatant ignorance will never change the facts.

Was it Scott Hammer? If so, he is a chucklehead, his mouth has got him in trouble several times.

I was down there a little while ago. Still people there, but there still is not even close to enough.

REPORT FOR DAY 4!!!

Although the crowd was down today there were several still out protesting:


The police were still there with two cruisers. According to the protesters "they've been real cool since day one" and there have been no incidents. Way to go Lexington police!


In addition to chanting and drumming there was a megaphone:


And yes, there is even ONE pimply faced youth amongst all those older people

I hope I do not end up eating my words, but the police here are fairly decent, even the jerks are not too bad. We do not typically get reports of misbehaving cops, against other citizens that is. I wonder if this is in part due to the remnants and still living in the shadow of the Bluegrass Conspiracy.

Check it out, there is a book, The Bluegrass Conspiracy, great little history lesson.
Lexington has a....colorful past.
Several affluent people in the area ran a large drug cartel and the police department was on the payroll.

I bounce back and forth from Knott Co, to Lexington. In Knott Co or judge has been convicted of crimes...

And how many times have we heard about KY sheriffs being in on the drug running?

It's a real LOL world... have to laugh so you don't cry!

Of course.. as fellow Kentuckians you guys all know about the pill business. It's wild in Ky these days.
I always found it a little coincidental that around the time we invaded Afghanistan pain pills flooded the streets. I mean, literally flooded.

The problem we are going to have in Lexington, or even Ky for that matter is people are too distracted with all the blue blood football/basketball. If there is a ballgame going on, nothing else matters.

We had our first occupy Louisville today.
Although I couldn't stay long,kids getting home from school,it was a pretty good turn out.
They had two different meeting places,but soon got everyone in one spot.

My sister and I atttended the Occupy Louisville event the first day. I estimate about approximately a hundred to possibly 150 people. My sister and I spent the whole first day at the event, and we were disappointed more people did not walk around the block with signs. We did, several times, we even hit Fourth Street Live with our signs, lol, educating and raising awareness! I was surprised so many showed, the Facebook page had some fighting, and the change of locations to the Belvedere was ridiculous. We were barely visible at the fourth street location. We had pigs all over the place, on horses (not cleaning up the horse poop) and ATVs and even once in riot gear! I have tons of video footage to share, once I upload it.

Lexington also got some media coverage yesterday. On the way home from work, I was listening to DoubleQ and the DJ gave the protest a positive plug.

He wrapped his comments up by saying, it is good to see people are waking up.

Awesome your were there !
Checkout there website and listen to the audio of the conversation between some of the members and the police.
You get a little insight on what actually happened on the Brooklyn bridge in NYC.

Occupy Lexington goes into it's second week!

I'm back in Lexington so I went down and interviewed some of the wonderful people there and will be uploading a video of those interviews when I get it done (I'm a perfectionist and want to make sure I upload a high quality product).

There continues to be a dedicated presence from all age groups.


The mood was very uplifting and several had musical instruments.


When I arrived a police officer was there chatting with the protesters in a very friendly manner. The protesters were also going out of their way to follow everything asked of them.


Look for the video interviews coming soon!

There are two problems with this statement:
a) in your posts here, you went out of your way to create a fear of "commies". Just like that, a knee-jerk reaction, now you are simply concerned about "sheeple"
b) methinks that if people have the power to get out, and be heard, that's already a power. By your logic, major revolutions were all done by powerless sheeple, but that "logic" is laughable.
