Heartache: White House Won’t Support Petition To Build A Death Star
Total joy kill
(US News) A “Death Star” won’t be a part of the U.S. military’s arsenal any time soon.
More than 34,000 people have signed an online petition calling on the Obama administration to build the “Star Wars” inspired super-weapon to spur job growth and bolster national defense.
But in a posting Friday on the White House website, Paul Shawcross, an administration adviser on science and space, says a Death Star would cost too much to build – an estimated $850 quadrillion – at a time the White House is working to reduce the federal budget.
Well, it would be kind of expensive. Anyone who’s a total Star Wars geek (that’s me) knows that simply building a Star Destroyer used up the entire economic output of a star system. Building a Death Star destroyed the economies of many, many, many star systems. The response also points out that
Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
Why can’t we fix the flaw? That’s what they did for the second Death Star.
Anyhow, it is a rather amusing response, entitled “This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For”. But still doesn’t get us a Death Star, which could be used to cross the galaxy (and conquer other star systems).
Along the way, the White House also shot down petitions for secession.
