Obama does not support blowing up planets with Death Star

Obama_death_star

(From Daily Mail) Bad news for geeks: the White House will not be building a Death Star.

When the White House received a petition with more than 25,000 signatures they had to respond, and they did so in good humor citing the costs of the station, and the administration’s strict stance on not blowing up planets.

‘The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon,’ wrote Paul Shawcross in the response, titled, ‘Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016. This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For.’

The bullet points are these:

  • ‘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?’

Though it’s hard to imagine anyone who hasn’t seen Star Wars, for anyone who hasn’t the Death Star was the terrifying weaponized space station controlled by the evil empire in the space saga.

The full response can be read at the White House’s site.
