We Decree a Shrug: Is it just me, or does the Supreme Court never seem to make many clear rulings anymore? They keep giving out 5-4 decisions that essentially say, "It depends."

The Ten Commandments case is another perfect example. The same religious text, the same type of monument, the same tax-funded government buildings -- yet sometimes it's appropriate to display Christian orthodoxy, and sometimes it's not. This won't give any guidance to anyone.

The same was true for the decisions on affirmative action and whether "Under God" can stay in the Pledge of Allegiance. The Supreme Court took the chicken-shit approach and refused to make any hard decisions with any real meaning.
