The People to the Obama Administration: "Build a Death Star"
« on: January 12, 2013, 08:40:31 AM »
There's some kind of a rule or law (I'm not clear on the specifics, but it doesn't matter) that says that if at least 25,000 people sign a petition asking the White House for something, the White House is required to issue a response. Someone created a petition asking the government to build a Death Star, and it received some 35,000 signatures. The White House dutifully issued a response. It's epic.

Well played government, well played.

This reminds me a little of this, which resulted in this.

Step 1: Build a Death Star.

Step 2: Use it to blow up those right-wing bugnutty states that wanted to secede.

Two birds, one stone!

I think that's one of the most awesome things that I've read on that site.

A “Death Star” won’t be a part of the U.S. military’s arsenal any time soon.........Paul Shawcross, an administration adviser on science and space, says a Death Star would cost too much to build — an estimated $850 quadrillion — at a time the White House is working to reduce the federal budget.

I'm sure this is something the right will use against Obama.

The other topic on this should be merged with this one. I already made my comment there.

I'm pretty sure a sense of humor isn't allowed in government. There is none in congress and none in the supreme court. Its probably in the constitution or the bill of whacko rights or something.

This will get him impeached for sure. Unless he goes ahead and builds it and holds us all hostage until 2016.

Not everyone is entitled to their own opinion. They're all entitled to mine though.

Sorry Piano,

http://whywontgodhealamputees.com/forums/index.php/topic,24337.msg541779/topicseen.html?PHPSESSID=cc077c29d38a946b9f424797d71eb27e#msg541779

I guess the fun number made me so excited I forgot to look for an earlier post.

No biggie, it's perfectly understandable.  I've done the same thing myself.

I bet we already have one at Area 51 or hiding behind the moon.  Afterall, we all know Obama wants to be Emperor of the Universe.

No, no...John Boehner wants to be ruler of the Universe. Obama wants just to be ruler of the Galaxy.

This is just another example of OBAMA not keeping our country safe!  I mean, when is he going to wake up and realize the only way to prevent invasion from space aliens is to be better armed!  I guess it will be up to free enterprise, as usual!

I know! We can make them out of Republicans!



No, wait...there's not enough of them. Only if we used those who vote for them as well who are not Republican (but really are).

Of course Europe is way ahead of us, and is already building a Death Star style superlaser. At least 200 petawatt, but they're shooting for hexawatt range.
Seriously though... What would happen if the Great Green Arkleseizure didn't fram up the rammastam before the hermite curve achieved maximum nurdfurdle velocity? Now THAT would be something. AmIrite?
