Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
You don't need to 'explain' your tax dodge to me, I own creek bottom and that makes my recreational area, mostly hunting, a tax write off. You attempt to game the system by trying to declare your 'backyard' as you call it, a tax write off. But it really doesn't matter if it is a backyard or a quarter section of timber, you don't own the airspace.
I don't see that as typical whiny conservative, more like just another self-centered citizen.
You are incorrect to think your/our freedoms are slipping away. YOU never had ownership of the airspace to the heavens. NO ONE in this Republic ever did. You are quite free do continue to walk in the forest, carry a weapon on your property, be secure in your own home. Nothing has been lost except your fantasy of sky ownership.
You never did answer how many times the DEA chopper hovered over you exchanging meaningful looks.
You sound a bit paranoid, I hear pot smokers can be that way...
