No, we need to wipe out the entirety of all the federal government branches and replace them with anyone who will be willing to support our progress into a grand empire.

How much would you like to bet the first Republican gets elected President will try to build a Death Star to spite Obama?

850 quadrillion.

Although I know I'd lose that one.

While the attempt on my life has left me scarred and disfigured, my resolve has never been stronger! Effective today, the American Republic will be reorganized into the FIRST, GALACTIC EMPIRE!

On a subsequent but not entirely unrelated note, the new Galactic Empire claims the entire galaxy.

That is correct. If I could die by rainbow, I would be happy. Rainbows are beautiful, though a double rainbow is even better. Die by double rainbows.

Hm. Since when has Obama cared about the cost of something? Krugman will probably harp about how great a stimulus this project would be.

I got an email response to the secession petition, I think the white house is taking these petitions too seriously.

I think the staffers enjoy having a ridiculous petition that allows them to make an equally ridiculous response.

America should go beyond the death star and create a massive space armada. It is not as expensive as you think! All the government needs to do is build a military base on the moon in order to house the fleet and then build a factory on Mars to cut the cost of putting spaceships in space. Then, all congress has to do is pass a bill not only that allows the military to draft convicted felons from prisons in order to maintain a steady surprise of pilots, but also places the space program under military control so that the students can put those skilled little minds to more important uses than whatever NASA currently teaches them. however, in order for this plan to work, the international space station must be seized by the US government by any means necessary.
