    What I've never understood, is how a Township could be considered a property owner if it's public property.
    The Township owns the property.

    The people own the Township, making it public.

    IANAL

    My wife and I don't usually do the same things to benefit the family. No need for both of us to mow the lawn when one can mow the lawn and the other can do something else to benefit the family. Then at the end of the day when the work is done and I've done what I did and she's done what she did we hold hands.

    I know you two aren't married to each other but there's no reason to disparage the other because they aren't doing what you are. You do what you do to make yourself happy and the family appreciates it.

    You know why they make more than 1 type of ice cream? Because not everyone likes the same thing.

    It's kind of funny how I read every one of your posts in Ralph Wiggums voice.

    Does any level of government have the power to own property?

    Where is that power derived in the Constitution from the people? Perhaps with certain exceptions but maybe we should desire that a government can never own property. Rent, borrow, manage perhaps. But not own. Ownership leaves us open to the concept of socialism, where the government owns most or communism, where the government owns all. Perhaps the only organizations that could own property are corporations / businesses.

    Just throwing that out for now. Wondering what others may think. Take away the ownership claim and this quandary of who can control said property, even against individual rights, goes away.

    I hear ya, it burns my biscuits to see those signs that say no trespassing, state property. Usually alongside a nice fishing hole or some reclaimed mine property. Who is "the state"?
    Go sell crazy some where else, we're all stocked up here.

    That's not usually how Judges rule on things. They rule according to whoever ponies up the most for reelection campaign funds. Since when is registration not registration? A: when the money says it isn't registration. Follow the money and find the ruling.
