Petition To Build The Death Star Gets White House Response

   Yes, you are reading this correctly.

   35,000 people signed a petition to the White House which called for the construction of a Death Star much like the one in the Star Wars movies.  The signees were more than enough to get the response from the Obama Administration, and it was a pretty hilarious response, to say the least.

    Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget, Paul Shawcross, titled the response  "This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For."

A few snippets for you.

"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?"

     The entire response.
