[via Sideshow] Emergency power to override all laws and regulations? Sounds like a Roman Dictator to me. Also the Secretary of Homeland Security if the Iraqi War Overrun Approval/UnReal National ID/Constitution Demolition act passes.
Someone once proposed a constitutional amendment requiring that all provisions of a law be related to the primary purpose thereof, forbidding irrelevant riders and piggybacking. I've had doubts at times, but this is nuts.
