Because we have some funky rule that any petition with a certain number of signatures requires an official response, the Obama administration has an official response to the request to build a Death Star by 2016. Or maybe it’s just that they have an actual sense of humor:
- 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?
