Official White House Petition Wants The US To Build A Death Star By 2016

In perhaps the best use of the White House's official "We the People" petition system, a group of faceless signatures want the US to secure funding and resources in order to begin construction on a Death Star by 2016. Yes, a Death Star.

The real question is, what in the hell took so long? Why were we bothering with killing SOPA when we could have spent our time trying to get a FREAKING DEATH STAR for America?! The petition says:

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 defence 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 defence.

Disappointingly, the petition only has over a thousand signatures at the moment. It will need a lot more than that to ever reach Obama's desk. And a lot more than that to ever get the project rolling. [White House]

    .....In more intelligent parts of the world, the American way of thinking is considered a mental illness.

    Playing 'devils advocate' here... Lets say they found some miracle building process that allows them to build one maybe a tenth the actual size of the 'Star Wars DS', which would be a massive construction project and be very impressive.. Let's say they managed to find a way to build the uber weapon that made the DS worth building in the first place... Question, Who are they going to use it on...?? :)

      Anyone. They. Like.

      Of course, I'm guessing you mean because it destroys a planet. Turn down the power I guess?

        Right, so the rest of the world will sit idly by and let them build it, knowing full well what it so obviously is? They could only build it with the help of the rest of the planet, which would make it redundant, unless ET finds it and gets pissed off. My whole point of playing Devils advocate in the first place, was to point out this stupidity....

          *cough*manhattanproject*cough* :P

            *cough*2012*cough*

              afraid I don't get the reference :( the movie or the year/so-called prophecy?

                What..?
                It's 2012 not early 40's so it wouldn't be possible to carry on with a project this size in secrecy...!

    lol only in american. How a country can be so economically developed and so mentally retarded is beyond me

      Here's how:

      1. America has less than 5% of the worlds population yet consumes over 25% of its resources. 67% of their GDP is consumer goods and services only, they hardly make anything, it's imported.

      2. Nearly all oil sold is in U.S. dollars.

      3. The world reserve currency is the U.S. dollar.

      4. The majority of brilliant brains in America are from other countries (55%).

      If you took the last three of those things away, the United States would go bankrupt overnight. They are over 16 trillion dollars in debt.

      Basically, they have become a super power because the western world LET them become a super power. Personally, I think it's time that plan was revised.

        The majority of *people* in America are from other countries (non-native). Much like Australia. And England, for that matter (Normans).

    Guys you all realise this isn't an actual proposal or decision by the United States Government, right? A bunch of people have signed a petition and submitted it officially, that's all. They probably get all sorts of wacky crap. Insane, crazy stuff, like 'peace' and 'equality'.

      At this stage, I am prepared to believe any stupid statement that comes out of America as truth.
