The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:
- 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?
From the official White House response to a petition to fund and build a Death Star. Go and read it, it’s absolutely perfect. (via nanemo)
I loved the “if you want to work in sciences, the force will be with you” and the “don’t forget the positive part of the force which is greater than death star’s destruction one” parts!
