What’s that? A drone? Over YOUR house?

Well, hell.  As if I didn't have enough bills to pay, now I have to develop an anti-UAV strategy. 
Not that I have anything to hide, but most of these armed UAVs end up shooting the wrong people.

It's obvious by now that the government is intentionally destroying the middle class so we won't have
the means to resist – they'll just cut off our food and water and send people to shoot us in the head.

FEMA camps are not practical – forget them.  Why would the government remove you as a taxpayer
just so they can have the pleasure of feeding and clothing you?  They aren't going to do that.  They are
going to create ghettoes where you already live and keep you in them.  Like Detroit.  And Chicago. And 
Washington, D.C. And LA and, finally, Austin, Texas.  You just keep working and paying 100% taxes
and the government will protect you from terrorism.  Unless you try to leave.  Then the TSA will get ya.

OK, so let's figure out how to stay out of the sights of drones which are piloted from thousands of miles away
and guided by real-time satellite video and will shoot your ass off in a heartbeat.  That's easy.  We can't.
And we can't prevent anyone from cutting off the power or the food shipments or the water.  We can't keep
them from shutting off the Internet or the TV.  So we need a strategy.  It's as simple as this: 
There are thousands of 'them' and millions of 'us'.  

From the Secrecy News –

DOMESTIC USE OF DRONES IS WELL UNDERWAY

The use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) within the United States is
certain to increase in the years to come, as a new Army policy has recently
made clear.  (“Army Foresees Expanded Use of Drones in U.S. Airspace,”
Secrecy News, January 19.)  But in fact the use of unmanned aircraft or
drones within U.S. airspace has already advanced to a degree that is not
widely recognized.

As of 2010, the Federal Aviation Administration had already issued
hundreds of “certificates of authorization” (COAs) for the domestic use of
drones.

“Right now, today as we sit here, we have 251 certificates of
authorization for unmanned aircraft, 140 of them are DOD related,” said
Hank Krakowski of the FAA at an informative Senate hearing in September
2010.  “We have not rejected or denied any DOD COAs in 2010, and we keep
moving forward.”

On the other hand, Mr. Krakowski cautioned, “While UASs offer a promising
new technology, the limited safety and operational data available to date
does not yet support expedited or full integration into the NAS [National
Airspace System]. Because current available data is insufficient to allow
unfettered integration of UASs into the NAS–where the public travels every
day– the FAA must continue to move forward deliberately and cautiously, in
accordance with our safety mandate.”

“Unmanned aircraft systems [were] originally and primarily designed for
military purposes,” he noted. “Although the technology incorporated into
UASs has advanced, their safety record warrants caution. As we attempt to
integrate these aircraft into the NAS, we will continue to look at any
risks that UASs pose to the traveling public as well as the risk to persons
or property on the ground.”

See “The Integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) Into the National
Airspace System (NAS): Fulfilling Imminent Operational and Training
Requirements,” Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Technology,
September 13, 2010 (published September 2011):

In the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, Congress included language
requiring a report on “the integration of unmanned aerial systems into the
national airspace system.”

The legality of the use of drones in CIA targeted killing programs is
among the topics that is explored in the brand new issue of the Journal of
National Security Law and Policy on the subject of covert war.  It can be
