Default White House Rejects Petition to build Death Star

This is cool. The tongue in cheek response is golden.


Quote:
The White House today responded to a petition that that demanded resources and funding be secured to finance the construction of a Death Star by 2016.

You see, American citizens have a constitutional right to petition our government and with the internet itís easier than ever. All you have to do is go to whitehouse.gov, sign up and youíre on your way to starting an official petition. The White House is obligated to respond if a petition reaches a certain amount of verified signatures, usually 25,000.

So, somebody petitioned the Obama Administration to build a Death Star and that petition got nearly 35,000 signatures, so the White Issued a response, from Paul Shawcross, chief of the White House Office of Management and Budgetís science and space branch.

I could run down how awesome and nerdy this petition is, but why donít you read it for yourself:

Nobody here said the article wasn't funny. However this "administration" is a piece of shit (as most are) and I'll go ahead and say it whenever I feel like it, what Willow said was accurate and just as funny

What we need is guns and to get that commie outta office.


I'm kidding. But people really think in those terms, which is both hysterical and unsettling.
