White House Responds To Death Star Petition
It all feels like something out of a comedy, or perhaps even a parody, but it's real. And amazingly, the petition received more than enough signatures to force the White House to address it. And address it did. Unfortunately, the response probably isn't the one most people were hoping for. Here's a snippet from the response: "The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. 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."
Perhaps even crazier is the response. Those quotes above are real, and are attributed to the White House. Who knew the folks at 1600 Penn. Ave. had such comedic prowess? At any rate, the White House reminds petitioners that we already have a Space Station, with six astronauts living in it right now. Still, that's not as cool as a Death Star, is it?
