Great response to a Whitehouse Petition

Quote:
OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE RESPONSE TO
Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.
This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For
By Paul Shawcross

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?

Surely a more fundamental objection is that it would be in violation of the Outer Space Treaty, to which the US is a signatory.

What nation would be brave enough to protest with that kind of firepower overhead?

Aw, c'mon, stop thinking up silly excuses and build a Death Star. They're fun!
