Why can't you appeal at Supreme Court?

There is no where else to appeal to. The United States Supreme Court is the highest court of the land. When cases are appealed, they're appealed to a higher court. Hence, if a case started in a standard state court, it would be appealed to the state appellate court. If it were appealed a second time, it would be heard by the state's supreme court. After a third appeal (we're assuming all of these appeals were accepted by the courts), the case would be heard in front of the U.S Supreme Court. The fact that there is no higher court makes the idea of an appeal impossible, thus the U.S Supreme Court's decision is final.
