DeM Banter: after Darth Vader’s failed bid for The White House..The Obama Administration might build a Death Star. The petition really is on the White House website.
Gregory Koger says it is just not worth it
George Lucas had no idea…and could not be reached for comment.
Darth Vader did warn… “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.”
You really can’t make this stuff up…verbiage below:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.
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.
Created: Nov 14, 2012
Issues: Defense, Job Creation, Science and Space Policy
