Of course they can, then we can all go down to the government food distribution center with our hat in our hand and say; "I'd like some more please. Along with that you will be handed a hammer and sickle.

"Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can."

You can read what Snopes said about it if you wish.

This references something passed by congress and signed into law by Harry Truman in 1950 to deal with national emergencies. Presidents over the last 60 years have been dealing with this. George W. Bush revised the existing executive Order not once but twice.

The big difference in this and the one in effect from Bush 43 is that FEMA and Homeland Securities duties have been revised to reflect current realities. It’s a little harder for the heads of the departments to say “Not my job” when the responsibilities are written down.

Freedom is not the right to do what we want, but what we ought....Abraham Lincoln (Freedom carries responsibility)

The spirit of liberty is the spirit which is not too sure that it is right.....Judge Learned Hand  (The more sure your are that your way is the only right way, the more likely you are wrong.)

And it's a lot easier for a President to say "It's not my FAULT"

 

He's delegated Presidential authority to appointed officials

Actually, the very real National Animal Identification System (NAIS) that the USDA has been trying to pull over on us for years now, is something we shouldn't let slip under the radar. States have to "buy" into it, but some already have and are under its thumb.

That is crazy-scary.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Animal_Identification_System   And small farms have to pay more?  Wow...
