White House shoots down Death Star petition
WASHINGTON – The White House is saying no to a construction project that could add an unknown numbers of jobs.
That project, building a “Death Star.”
Yes, just like the one in the “Star Wars” movies.
The spherical Death Star Space Station was the domain of the Galactic Empire and featured a super laser with the power to destroy planets.
The idea to build one was posted as a petition on the White House website.
It received more than 34,000 signatures, which means the administration had to comment.
And it did, saying in a statement that “the administration does not support blowing up planets.”
The White House also said the estimated $850 quadrillion price tag for the project was a bit too high.
