U.S. Govt Says No To 'Death Star'

By Dan8267   2013 Jan 21, 12:00pm   1 link   570 views   4 comments   watch (1)   quote      

The U.S. Government has finally responded to the "Death Star" petition submitted to its "We the People" website. The petition, which was submitted on November 14th, tries to persuade the government to build a 'Death Star' by 2016. For the uninitiated, Death Star is a fictional, moon-sized space station that is capable of destroying planets with a laser beam. It appears in the Star Wars series of movies.

An here I was thinking on submitting a petition to amend the Constitution to ban torture. But that's not kewl enough to go viral.

That would be nice....amending the constitution to banning torture, but probably easier to ban the Patriot Act and NDAA. Ditto to the Muslim Cleric who was found not guilty of wrongdoing. Without the NDAA, there wouldn't be rights to detain so called suspicious people for no reason. Pretty sure Ron Paul was the only person who brought up that issue.

Patriot act was established by Bush and its powers were expanded in the NDAA by Obama

Actually Dennis Kucinich also opposed the Patriot Act. He and Ron Paul work together often even though they are on opposite parties and have polar opposite economic views. Nevertheless, they are friends and cooperate on human rights and civil rights issues.
