No Death Star for you

As many of you know, the Obama administration promised that they would reply to any petition submitted on the white house website which exceeded 25,000 signatories. Well, a petition to have the USA build a Death Star by 2016 was filed and exceeded the total. The Obama administration has now replied. As part of their reply, they stated the following:

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?

So, for all of you who were hoping to have the USA build a Death Star and cease being a Republic, there is bad news for you. The USA is remaining a Republic. No Empire will happen, no Death Star will be built, and the President will not become the Emperor. So sorry!

I was so looking forward to having my own light saber! Sigh!
