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.

    Ah, So you’re telling me that Obama didn’t
    take Bocce as a second language at Harvard?

  2. I think his second language was “Marx”.

    You’re right, of course, and creepy Comrades Al Sharpton and Chris Matthews are now advocating on their creepy tv shows that not since Abe Lincoln has any president been more deserving to be on Mount Rushmore than creepy Comrade Barack Obama is. (spit) If that wasn’t so sick and smarmy it would be laughable.

    But who didn’t see that coming? They don’t want equal treatment. They want preferential treatment, and they’re getting it, because whites are such wussies.

    Next, those child-like blacks and their trashy white sycophants will want Obama’s birthday to replace Christmas, and you know what? Moronic, trashy whites will go for it, for no other reason than because it would be so, so, well, just so cool.

    So many Americans today disgust me and my family. The USA has become a country of degenerates.

    Couldn’t agree more. Just look at the state of public tv and what is said and shown. No morals and complete debauchery and sin. Look at our inept science and educational system. Education is supposed to increase over time.. but ours has gone underground.

    As for the space station, Obama has already shown he is anti-space. Pushing NASA to be Islamic focused should tell you why the Death Star is not preferred. It would be seen as a Jewish conspiracy. “star” ?!?!?
