WASHINGTON, DC, February 27, 2013 - Al-Qaeda operatives: Forget about that list of 22 crude anti-drone tactics discovered in an abandoned building in Mali. If those tactics had been genuinely useful, why did al-Qaeda leave there?

Granted, rubbing a mixture of mud and sugar on yourself and your vehicles could make you partially invisible to the next drone — but wouldn’t the wiser tactic be to become completely invisible to the entire U.S. government and mass media altogether?

All it takes is learning a few useful facts about the American political establishment. Try these 23 alternative tips: if used as directed, people in Washington will either pretend you don’t exist or they will alter your public image until you become unrecognizable - even to yourself.

Alternative Tips for Avoiding U.S. Drone Strikes

1. Join the church where Al Sharpton is a preacher. No one knows where it is.

2. If you can’t find it, join the church Obama frequents.

3. If you can’t find that: register as a Republican Senate candidate from New York, New Jersey, or California.

4. Get a federal “green energy” loan, then declare bankruptcy. The U.S. government will cover for you.

5. Proclaim you are a victim of black-on-black crime. The media will render you invisible.
6. Come out as a black conservative. The media will render you unrecognizable.

7. If you are a woman: confess that Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy once propositioned you.

8. Hide in the back of a Massachusetts senator’s submerged car. It will buy you at least a few hours.

9. Become a member of Obama’s Job Council.

10. Insert yourself in the next 2,000-page bill.

11. Follow Jesse Jackson to an honest day’s work.

12. Get friendly with Sandra Fluke. Nobody has ever been able to find any of those guys.

13. Say “Hi, I’m Jon Huntsman and I’m still running for president.”

14. Pretend you’re a salad; at least the First Lady won’t spot you.

15. Never walk in New York holding a 16oz Styrofoam soda cup.

16. Never drink from a bottle of water in front of a camera. This will put you in the media spotlight 24/7 for days.

17. Get in line at the DMV or another government office; by the time you emerge, drones will be obsolete.

18. Impersonate an American taxpayer.

19. Hide in plain sight in Benghazi; it makes a lot of difference.

20. Camp out at Obama’s shooting range; no one is ever there.

21. Stay where Obama keeps his college transcripts, U.S. passport records, or financial records. You will never be disclosed.

22. Set up in one of Chicago’s highest murder-rate zones. A truckload of fighters with RPGs will go undetected.

23. Hold a sign, preferably bilingual, declaring a “Drone-Free Zone.”

At The People’s Cube, we do NOT equate all “liberals” with communists. The purpose of this website is to pick up “liberal” hitchhikers and give them a ride to the communist wonderland - the inevitable end result of their “well-meaning” policies.

With a whole lot of humor and an eye to the absurdities of poltics and politicans, Oleg Atbashian brings the news and views from The People's Cube to the Communities and you.

Born and raised in Ukraine, Oleg Atbashian has been a teacher, translator, construction worker, satirical journalist, and at one time a propaganda artist, creating visual agitprop for the local Party committee in Siberia. In 1994, he moved to the US with the hope of living in a country ruled by reason and common sense, and whose citizens were appreciative of constitutional rights and capitalist prosperity. To his dismay, he discovered a nation deeply infected by the leftist disease of "progressivism" that was arresting true societal progress. He started writing satire again, this time in English, publishing a large number of essays, political parodies, and cartoons, in various media in America and around the world.

In 2005 Oleg Atbashian started, a forum-based spoof of "progressive" ideology with a loyal conservative/libertarian following, which he runs under the name of "Comrade Red Square, People's Director, Department of Visual Agitation and Unanimity." Rush Limbaugh described it on his show as "a Stalinist version of The Onion." The site contains thousands of hilarious, original satires and graphics by contributors from all parts of the US and the English-speaking world.
