Do the Petitions.WhiteHouse.gov Double-Take

I’ll give you the leading paragraph, but you’ll have to head over to the White House site for the rest.  I wish our government showed a lighter side more often.  Given Congress’ current approval ratings, it couldn’t hurt.

The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

  • The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
  • The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
  • Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
