Speaking of Friday night document drops...


Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness

I have given it a cursory reading and it doesn't look good.  No siree - not at all!

This part gave me real pause (emphasis mine)
(b)  The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.
 It appears to give these departments:  Agriculture, Energy, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Defense and Commerce the ability to confiscate just about anything they want, from anyone they want, for whatever reason.  Not to worry if they end with too much - they have given themselves the right to stockpile.

Seriously, people - you need to go read this.  

OMGosh.  I just read it again and it's worse than I thought.
