Bad Supreme Court Decisions?

I generally feel that this Supreme Court is supreme and really isn’t a court. Many of theeir decisions a political decisions rather than judicial decisions and that is wrong. Personl opinions should not enter in to proper decisions about our constitution’s meaning. This court blatntly makes personal and political decisions having no basis in the Constitution.

However, recent decisions confuse me. I agree with some and entirely disagree with others.

I agree that the Guntanimo “prisoners” deserve the full protection of our constitution and there for our courts. How could anyone consider otherwise that has ever read the Constitution.  The court somewhat agrees with my opinion here.

I think that gun control is clearly within the powers of the states. There is no provision in the constitution for personal right to bear arms. The court crated that right in a recent decision. Too bad for the cities. No real benefit to anyone.

Speed Limit

What is the real speed limit?
The sign means nothing. What matters is an unknown  “safe” speed limit? 50 on Alma

street with a posted 36?
Automate the car to limit speed based on speed  zone (GPS based?.
Let car report speed to milepost speed sign as they pass, with the ticket in the mail.
Pass a law that the posted speed is the maximum speed allowed without a ticket.
Why not a sign saying “35mph, or whatever you thing is safe”
