The White House has a website titled, “We the People.” An official response is issued when a set number of people (25,000 at the time of this response) sign a petition. Just over 34,000 people requested the federal government build a Death Star (think Star Wars).
The Official White House Response
1. 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.
2. The administration does not support blowing up planets.
3. Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that could be exploited by a one-man starship?
Dated, but funny.
