"While there are many wild cards that could light the fuse, The Trends

American Revolution). Tens of millions will

CLG in Washington Post: Mandatory Flu Shots Hit Resistance --Many Health-Care Workers Required to Get Vaccines By Rob Stein 26 Sep 2009 With the H1N1 pandemic spreading rapidly, hundreds of thousands of doctors, nurses, orderlies and other U.S. health-care workers for the first time are being required to get flu shots, drawing praise from many public-health authorities but condemnation from some employees, unions and other critics who object to mandatory vaccination...

Right Madam --The publication of details from an alleged brothel-keeper's phone book has left Washington DC's Republican politicians trembling. The scandal has already claimed its first scalp. By Andrew Purcell 15 Jul 2007 The "DC Madam" scandal has been a staple of congressional gossip for months but on Monday it claimed its first senator. David Vitter is an old-fashioned, God-fearing, family-values conservative from Louisiana who has built his platform on opposition to abortion in any circumstances, including cases of rape and incest. Ever since they were released, teams of volunteers from anti-George Bush activist group Citizens For Legitimate Government have been calling every number on the list and posting the results online. Spokeswoman Lori Price said: "I believe it will make a difference politically because of the pattern, the cumulative effect of so many people that are espousing conservatism and family values being caught lying. A crime is a crime, but it's so much more egregious if you're preaching against it beforehand. There's a burgeoning anger in the United States at the hypocrisy and double-standards of this government. The Libby pardon is part of the same illness. The Foley page scandal is part of the same illness."

Bloggers hunt for names of possible clients in Washington escort service's phone files 14 Jul 2007 With the recent release of reams of phone records from a woman accused of running a Washington prostitution ring, bloggers and others online have taken up the cause of hunting for links to elected officials and other prominent people. "Some top level Republicans are making statements about lifestyles and family values," said Lori Price, editor of the liberal Citizens for Legitimate Government website, explaining her motivation. "We want to see if they are in fact living their lives based on what they are preaching and forcing us to comply with. We see some hypocrisy."
So who's next on the DC Madam's secret sex list? 14 Jul 2007 He was a moral poster boy for the Republican party, lecturing the party faithful on the sanctity of marriage and the importance of family values. But Senator David Vitter's righteous reputation unravelled this week when he was linked to a prostitution ring run by a woman known in the US capital as the "DC Madam"... "The overall endeavour easily could take many months, if not years to research and report conscientiously," said Jeane Palfrey. But time isn't a problem to Lori Price who manages the Citizens for Legitimate Government website, one of the organisations currently analysing the records.
More Names to Come, Lawyer for 'D.C. Madam' Vows 23 Jul 2007 For months, alleged D.C.

Within hours of their public release, a senator acknowledged Monday night that his telephone number was on the list. Now, groups such as one calling itself Citizens for Legitimate Government, which runs a liberal Web site, are poring over the records, hoping to translate the raw numbers into more names and revelations.

CARLSON: You don‘t? RECTENWALD: All we did was publish a phone list.
Tucker Carlson, stalwart defender of sexual privacy By Glenn Greenwald 12 Jul 2007 Last night on his MSNBC show, Tucker Carlson vehemently objected to the David Vitter story, insisting that Sen. Vitter's repeated and continuous hiring of prostitutes was completely irrelevant and should not be discussed by anyone. Carlson became so upset over the Vitter story that he spent most of the segment screaming at and insulting his guest, Michael Rectenwald, who was arguing that Vitter's holding himself out as the Candidate of Family Values and the Sanctity of Traditional Marriage renders relevant his criminal prostitution activities...

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann smashes Newt Gingrich: 29 Nov 2006 "When you talk about closing down internet sites, who is the one who is going to decide which those are? It could be the Daily Kos, it could be Citizens For Legitimate Government - if he doesn't like any one of them in particular." Webpage by Ron Corvus
'Countdown with Keith Olbermann' for Nov. 28 --Transcript KEITH OLBERMANN, HOST: ...Jonathan, are there not legal methods already in place to deal with such sites that do not require what Mr. [Newt] Gingrich has here called "supervision that we would never dream of"? JONATHAN TURLEY, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW EXPERT, GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY: Well, there are plenty of powers and authorities that could be used to monitor truly dangerous people. But what you see here, I think, is the insatiable appetite that has developed among certain leaders for controlling American society. We saw that with John Ashcroft not long after 9/11, when he said the critics were aiding and abetting the terrorists. There is this insatiable appetite that develops when you feed absolute power to people like Gingrich... OLBERMANN: So, and also, when you talk about closing down Internet sites, who is the one who‘s going to decide which those are? I mean, it could be the Daily Kos, it could be Citizens for Legitimate Government, it could be the sports Web site Dead Spin, for all we know, if they don‘t—if he doesn‘t like any one of them in particular.

Viral video killed the reality TV star (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) By Andrew Johnson 14 Jul 2006 "But Michael D. Rectenwald, an English professor and postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University, thinks he knows where the [viral video] road ends: mostly nowhere.

Rectenwald, a culture maven who teaches a counterculture summer course, 'The Beats to Hip-Hop,' and has appeared on MSNBC's 'Scarborough Country,' said what's unique about the viral video phenomenon might not last for long... Rectenwald doubts that will last. Not because viral video won't exist, but rather artists' work will be harder to find. Rectenwald mentioned the quiet debate swirling in Washington, D.C., about eventually switching a World Wide 'superhighway' into a 'toll highway' with leading Internet providers making the case for more control over content."

Voters rejected because of paper weight --Disenfranchised by old technology --by Nick Farrell "A ginger group claims that the state of Ohio has rejected thousands of voter registrations because they are on the wrong paper. Citizens for Legitimate Government, here, said that an old law requires all voter registration forms to be on cards that are 80lb stock paper. This is a hangover from the days when such forms had to be kept for a long time... The Citizens for Legitimate Government claims that the local boards have been snowed under with requests and can't process the voter application forms in time. The result is that they will not be able to vote. The group is calling on people who cannot vote on time to drop Ken a line to explain the problem. He has a web-page here."

Citizens for Legitimate Government is cited in a New York Times Op-ed commentary November 5, 2002: "President Bush is criticized not just for catastrophically frittering away our budget surplus or for rushing us into a mess in Iraq. Rather, Citizens for Legitimate Government put it this way in its e-mail newsletter: 'We have an Idiot Usurping Lying Weasel for a President.'"
