I'm not sure if other's have already commented on this, but irregardless, I think it is something that needs to be restated. Apparently, the Bush Administration is preparing to introduce legislation that would create a panel of advisors with the authority to dismantle federal programs at it's discretion. Now, even if you ignore the negative impact on every facet of our lives that this legislation would bring, there is still the fact that this legislation would in effect make the executive branch all powerful. So yeah, in general, it's a tad bit discomforting.
