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?

$850 quadrillion dollars. We don't want to blow up planets. A waste because it can be destroyed by a single star ship.

(still laughing)

How old do you have to be to submit one of these petitions? Are they all under 10, perhaps?

Cuz this particular petition is right up my 8 y/o son's alley.

And based on my daughter's last geography test (3rd grade) she already thinks that Irvine is its own country... So she would apparently support secession..... And apparently be in very good company among the "We the People" petitioners.
