Bush Proclaims Law Day

Hear ye, Hear ye!

His Majesty, George W. Bush, has issued a Presidential Proclamation officially declaring May 1 "Law Day":
"This year's Law Day theme, 'Liberty Under Law: Separate Branches, Balanced Powers,' honors the wisdom of the separation of powers that the Framers of our Constitution established for the Federal Government. Delegates to the Constitutional Convention recognized the risks that accompany the concentration of power and devised a system in which the Federal Government's authorities are divided among three independent branches. James Madison highlighted the importance of our Constitution's separation of powers when he wrote, 'the accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands . . . may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.'"
However, subjects of the Realm take note! In a super-secret "presidential signing" which will become public never, he exempted himself from all that Madisonian nonsense.

Dept. of Amplification
The head of our government, vice-emperor Dick Cheney, also has declared himself exempt from the law.
