Obama Will Explain Why We Can’t Have A Death Star

Hopefully he won’t point to the economy you all broke and say “this is why we can’t have nice things”. But back to the Death Star; as we’ve seen before, the White House has a petitioning system with one simple rule: if a petition garners 25,000 signatures within 30 days, the government has to explain why it’s still not going to do it — because that’s what it’s said to all of them so far. But probably the best petition ever has just joined the ranks of those that must be answered:

Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016.

By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.

It gathered 26,650 signatures in 30 days. Go ‘merica!
