White House to Signers: Force Not Strong Enough With Death Star Petition

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-thousand 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-dollar price tag for the project was a bit too high.
