Bill, really, now, Supreme Court rulings? You cite that last-millennium institution as if such rulings, or that old fossil institution SCotUS, mean something today. (*cough* Justice Roberts *cough*) Next thing you know, you'll be saying something really crazy, like we have a balance of powers. Silly, silly Bill!
Seriously, would-be patriots pushed around exemplifies the success of nicks and cuts gradually accepted, which destroy the very concept of rights in the minds of the general citizenry.
