A petition to start building a Death Star by 2016 just passed the 25,000-signature threshold needed to get a response from the White House.   (OraTVnetwork)

(Newser) – It could be the greatest stimulus project of all time—a Death Star. A petition to start work on the Star Wars vessel by 2016 was one of the stranger petitions submitted to the White House's "We the People" website. But now that the Death Star petition has passed the 25,000-signature threshold—precisely a month after it was submitted on Nov. 14—the White House is going to have to respond, reports LiveScience. Certainly there aren't any bigger fish to fry than a Death Star.

Talk about holding the high ground. I don't think China, Russia, N. Korea etc are gonna like that idea and will most likely go to any lengths to stop us. Like shooting it down. Even the UN will get nervous. Can you imagine what people like Bush/Cheney would be capable of doing with a weapon like that. This is a BAD idea.
