US Petition to build Death Star and official government response

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/secure-resources-and-funding-and-begin-construction-death-...
Quote
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.
Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016.
By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.

The response is worth reading!

Saw this the other day. Thought their response brilliant, managing to appeal to trekkies, promote their activity in space and make the Obama administration look cool in one fell swoop.

I always thought the death star was a bad design to be honest.. it just looks utterly boring!
I vote we either build Atlantis from SGA or the Destiny from SGU:
Atlantis - on a planet:

Atlantis - Flying through Hyperspace (Note that to fly along, it flys UP unlike other space ships as the engines are under it):

Destiny from SGU (built by the Ancients who built Atlantis - SGU was a spin off from the SG1 and SGA shows):
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

At $2.7 Billion per US citizen, that's a real snip. However if they continue to print money at their current rate of Quantitative Easing it might be small change.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
