Tell that to GONZALES v. RAICH, which said: even if there is no interstate market, the federal government can still regulate intrastate commerce because if there was a market, they could regulate that.

There is no possibility of an interstate market on a commuter train that doesn't go anywhere close to a state line.

Despite the logical nullity, this is the reasoning that they use.

I have long dispensed with the bogus rationales of the black robes as regards the plain interpretation of constitutionality.

You know that, I know that, everyone knows that.
And yet it is still the legal reasoning that they give.

I have thought, for a while now, that they should be made to live with the consequences of their decisions. Remember Kelo, well, what if we had all the local county guys seize all the Justices's private property under made up numbers (projections) that this would increase levied tax by some amount. The suspension of Habeus Corpus and indefinite detention [without charges] is legitimate? Well lock the justices up in barren rooms with only food and water and a private tasked to retrieve for them writing utensils and law books. — then see how long it takes them to reverse their decisions.

Seriously, some of the problems we face can be eradicated quickly by making the elite ruling class live by the rules they impose.
