Barry and Diane Cavanaugh: as "established homeowners" you can take some of your Prop 13 savings to water your plants with European mineral water if you like.

And congratulations, you made front page on burbed: Web Link

Barry and Diane Cavanaugh don't own their home here. There is only one homeowner here. If you want to find out who owns your home, just stop paying the property taxes on it.

paying taxes = government ownership?
not paying taxes = your ownership?

Taxes aren't a punishment or form of control or showing who's boss. They're part of a social contract we're all in. Some of us are too childish to play, but for the contract to work, the rest of us make them play anyway.

It's not the guvmint owns your house, Randall. It's your neighbors and you together. You'd take all your own marbles and go home, but then you'd live in some crappy place where your home has no value.
