Following Election Day 2012 media outlets both local and national breathlessly reported on the “Secession” petitions found on the White House website. Media treated the nonsense as “news”. As if in a answer to that silliness another petition that has as much real world value as calls for secession has surfaced on the White House site and it is gaining momentum. There is now a petition on the same forum calling for the United States government to raise the funds and begin construction on our very own Death Star by the year 2016.
The creators of the petition have stated their purpose clearly:
“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.”
One hopes that if this petition gains signatures and the US Death Star project moves ahead some consideration is given to fixing that little problem with that exhaust port.
Thus far 510 citizens have signed the petition.
