A gray, rainy day in the ATX — a good day to trim trees?
So, lately we’re been hearing a lot of talk about the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the US Constitution. Let’s do some research, shall we?
Here’s a picture of the Founding Fathers in Philadelphia hammering out the Constitution. The US Constitution was drafted over a period of 116 days from 25 May 1787 to 17 September 1787.
The American Revolution ended on 3 September 1783. It took a long time to finalize the Constitution and it had a provision to amend it.
First, contrary to the talking heads, the 25th Amendment was not the work of the Founding Fathers. I listened to an idiot on Fox News for half an hour talking about what the Founding Fathers intended.
The 25th Amendment was submitted to the states on 6 July 1965. It was ratified on 10 February 1967.
