80. No
I remember listening to the news on the radio as I was dressing in the morning. Nixon was overriding some bill that Congress wanted passed. I remember thinking at the time that in his contempt for Congress, Nixon was nailing his coffin shut. Soon after that, Nixon was on the run and soon after that he was out.

Congress had some integrity in those days. The number of people in Congress with integrity today is a fraction of what it was then. I just think of my congressperson, Thelma "Rubber Stamp" Drake and my senior, senator John "Situational Ethics Warner. What a pair! Drake is too stupid to know that she is a pawn, plus she is Canadian born so probably doesn't know about the Constitution, but Warner has no excuse. Hope he likes the fires of Hell.
