No Death Star For Defense Department

After an online petition to build a planet-destroying "Death Star", the U.S. government has decided against building the "Star Wars" weapon.


The government response even uses some Star Wars language, "This isn't the petition response you're looking for." You can check out the document here.

Here's the link to the Twitter response by Darth Vader, which begins with "A serious mistake, Mr. President" --

$850T should be no problem, we can just get people making over $150,000 a year to pay their fair share and we wouldn't even have to raise the payroll tax taxes on the working class!

I find your lack of vision disturbing, Mr. President.
