Nice Try

imagesThe White House’s open invitation for the people to be heard – in the form of petitions on – was put to good use today with a proposal that would “spur job creation,” “focus our defense resources,” and “strengthen our national defense,” according to the petition’s authors. Which sounds great…if only it existed in the realm of nonfiction. The petition is for the government to begin construction of a Death Star – from the Star Wars franchise – by 2016. So far, 612 people have signed since the petition was first established on November 14th.

To me, 2016 sounds way too optimistic. The world is scheduled to end well before that.
