We may be trillions in debt, but one thing you can say about the United States is that we still have a healthy sense of humor. When the Obama administration unveiled its "We The People" government petition website and promised to look into any issue that garnered more than 25,000 signatures, it was only a matter of time until We The People took it upon ourselves to make a mockery of it.
Case and point, this petition to "secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star." There are now more than 27,000 Americans who have signed on their support for building such a fully armed and operational battle station -- well more than the 25,000 threshold for an official comment from the White House. What say you, Mr. President?
We know President Obama isn't a fan of nuclear weapons -- I wonder how he feels about moon-sized space stations equipped with planet-destroying super lasers...
Fire at will, commander.
