Bush names himself "Emperor"-no kidding!

This happened five weeks ago, and I've been sitting on this for a month, but I have yet to see any mention in the mainstream media. Yes folks, in what may be the ultimate power grab in our nations history, George Bush on 5/09/07 issued two Presidential Directives stating that His Royal Eminence Himself will take over the entire government in a" catastrophic" emergency. I am absolutely not making this up. Read this article--

Here is how the directives define "catastrophic" emergency"--
It defines a “catastrophic emergency” as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government function.”
This could mean another 9/11, or another Katrina, or a major earthquake in California, I imagine, since it says it would include “localized acts of nature, accidents, and technological or attack-related emergencies.”
The document emphasizes the need to ensure “the continued function of our form of government under the Constitution, including the functioning of the three separate branches of government,” it states.
But it says flat out: “The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government.”

A slightly careful read of this section makes it plain that with such broad and nebulous parameters in the definition of "catastrophic" emergency, Bush can pretty much choose for himself when his directives take effect.

A hurricane, tornado, forest fire, bridge collapse, drought, an extra-inning loss by the Texas Rangers? Crop failure, more indictments aimed at his criminal enterprise? People starting to tell the truth under oath? An election coming up? Any of these things could qualify as an emergency in the eyes of The Supreme God of The U.S. of A.

I really wonder why this has gotten no notice. Is everyone so used to his illegal unconstitutional power grabs that they pass it off as nothing new? This isn't "just George doing his thing", but everybody just sits there like frogs in a kettle while the water heats to boiling. You should be out building a guillotine for this bastard.
