    Last year, under the We the People program, a petition was started to have the US Government build a Death Star by 2016.

    Under the program, petitions that get 25,000 signatures or more would be considered by a member of the administration.

    The petition to build a Death Star gained 35,000 signatures, and thus warranted a hearing.

    But the idea has now been rejected by the White House!

    So, 35,000 people will be disappointed.

    I just wonder which planets they would have liked to use the Death Star to destroy!

    I'm gonna say, that slacker, Pluto. Since it's been down-sized to nothing more than a large rock, I'm thinking...TARGET!!

    I was really hoping to wipe out a few planets in our solar system. This sucks!

    Personally, I've never been too fond of Mercury. Waste of perfectly good rock.

    Our traditional enemy has always been Mars. I wanted to wipe that smug look off those little green faces for years now!

    Maybe they could make a technology demonstrator instead.

    As in build it to a smaller scale. Then they wouldn't need 13,000 years of steel production for the construction.

    Well if they want to build a small demonstrator, then I'll send them the GPS co-ordinates to a couple of my neighbors.

    Some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn may have the building blocks for life. Perhaps it would be good to eliminate them before they evolve into societies that rival our own.

    Okay, enough talk about y'allsanus. Y'allsanuses. Y'allsanusi. Whichever.

    Personally, I'd like to see the Ion Engine and Warp Drive tech that allows that monster to move. Build the Death Star.....load all lawyers and politicians on it, kick off the warp engines and let some other poor unfortunate race deal with em. If they make it....did I mention I forgot to add "food" to the inventory? Oops.

    The lawyers and politicians angle is a good move, that would boost the signatures big time!
