Bush grasps for dictatorial powers with an "enabling act"

The administration of George W. Bush is seeking dictatorial powers, nothing short of unreviewable, unchallengeable power to do as it pleases:
Sec. 8. Review.

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.
This power grab is nothing short of an attempt to snuff out Democracy, much the same way Democracy was snuffed out in Germany with the so-called Enabling Act of 1933.

The legislation as proposed by the Bush Administration would allow the Bushies to spend more than $1,000,000,000,000 any way they wanted to: without any legislative or judicial restraint. Under the terms of this legislation, George W. Bush could pay Blackwater mercenaries to round up and murder opponents of the Bush Administration--and it would be completely legal.
