    couldn't Congress or SCOTUS do anything when Reagan fired the PATCO strikers?

    It seems to me like it was a direct violation of the "peacable assembly" clause of the 1st Amendment.

    The House of Representatives may have tried something - they were still in Democratic hands, but the Senate also went to the Republicans in 1980 and stayed that way until the '86 mid-terms.

    But, to me, if things were done right, that approaches an impeachable offense AFAIC.

    liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
