George Bush's Power Grab: Authorizes Martial Law Provisions

Another chilling reality of the Dubya Bush disillusionment. He is now defining a national emergency in ways that will allow him to personally and unilaterally dictate and direct almost every power in all orders of government and even the private sector economy apparently without going to Congress.

These Presidential Directives are being made without notice never mind consultation with Congress.

Whatever happend to the American governance principle of "Checks and Balances?"
