Supreme Court does it again

So, the Supreme Court now gets to dictate the policy of the EPA. If the EPA doesn't think it has authority to regulate something and/or chooses not to regulate it and/or is ordered not to regulate it, under what Constitutional authority does the Supreme Court get to order it to regulate green house gases?

We just need one more strict interpreter of the Constitution on the Court and all this silliness can go away.

Regardless of how you stand on many controversial policy issues, i.e. abortion, 'global warming', etc, the Supreme Court is not the body to set policy, make law, or even enforce laws. I wish the justices would just do their limited job, to interpret the law as drafted by the legislature. These guys in robes think they can manipulate the law in order to affect their personal policy decisions. It drives me nuts.

Aren't these activist judges skewed towards the "conservative" administration?

Actually, five of the judges, who were the majority in this particular case, are skewed to the 'liberal' or, more importantly, non strict interpretation.

I don't want a majority of judges/justices skewed in any particular political way; I want them to understand the limited role the judiciary is supposed to play and limit their rulings to the statutes passed by our elected officials.

It always amazes me how complicated something so simple as reading a document can become. If we simply followed the constitution word for word, this garbage wouldn't be an issue.

I honestly feel that we, as a people, are too distanced from our own history and civilization to consider the greater good. Everyone is an individual and our culture isolates people while pushing them to "empower" themselves. This leads to a bunch of selfish gits that care about little more than themselves. Documents like the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence are dusty old bits of the past and don't really resonate with the average citizen today. We need a shiny new Constitution with Flash animation and a GUI to speak to the modern American. That moldy old piece of parchment just don't play today.
