I agree with the above posters.

The petition site is obviously entirely the circuses part of panem et circenses.

I'm undecided as to whether we should consider it a sideshow for or downright mockery of the people.

And anyway I'm a realist, shouldn't our first goal be either a Star Destroyer or Millenum Falcon?

I find your lack of faith disturbing! *chokes sonny by merely mimicking the motion* HAHAHA! I had to!

Just highlights the notion that either the White House doesn't really understand what "redress" means or that the People don't.....Either way we are screwed.

This was so stolen from me.... I am serious too.

Back about six months ago I started (tried to start) a mock election campaign for Dick Cheney. I had a bunch of "Bumper Sticker " slogans like...

"Remember kids- Obama gives you 'Change you can believe in'... Belief is for pussies. With Cheney you get change you can SEE."
AND

"Cheney 2012- He shoots lawyers"

AND

"What will Dick Cheney give you? The #ing Death Star. Darth Vador will be president. Boba Fette will be Vice President.

Seriously, if I am going to have my guns taken, be taxed into enslavement, forced to work long hours for little food and possibly have to eat Rats- At least lets make this # entertaining and vote for Cheney.

Finally we can have a President with the Balls to invade Canada ...(those Bastards)...He would have let them run their Oil Pipeline clear through protected marshlands- Then he would have taken that #- By force.

"looks like that there Pipeline is on our land."

And if they diverted the Oil, we would invade their asses- Hell, we could nuke em with Cheney at the Helm.

-And Mexicans... Oh yeah baby, you could OWN a mexican if Cheney was in charge.

Since us Americans are War Criminals anyhow- And we are going to be 100% controlled very soon- Lets have some fun this election.

Vote Cheney. "
(I copy/pasted these from my original thread on another site)
EDIT: I was responding to someone who called us all "war Criminals" and "Racists" for simply being an American and they had just (evidently) done a documentary in their Country where they said Americans are eating rats to survive- And yes, I was trolling- but it was alot of fun. Just wish it would have caught on.

Anyhow, I tried to make this thing take off and hit several forums and actually debated people about why Cheney would be the best prez ever. LOL.

So we didnt elect Cheney but we still get a Death Star? Sorry, isnt going to work- That command Chair was MADE for the Dick.

Isn't the creation of the Death Star what initiated the Rebellion?

Also.

What’s the economic calculus behind the Empire’s tactic of
A) building a Death Star,
B) intimidating planets into submission with the threat of destruction,
and C) actually carrying through with said destruction if the planet doesn’t comply?


I just went off reading about the Death Star, there is surprisingly a lot of information about it.

I wouldn't mind the idea of a Spaceport that looks like the Death Star.


And we should design our ships like X-wings and Millennium Falcons.

That's the kind of stuff i'd like to see. Although the Space Shuttle and ISS are still AMAZING.

I don't think Obama would even consider this petition above other petitions from states that want to withdraw from Obamacare or the union or other more immediate concerns of the people......but maybe then again, he would. It's not like he follows protocol.

The funny thing is- People would seriously be thrilled if we were building a DeathStar. "American pride" and "ingenuity". It would be Flag waving madness with most citizens cheering it on . There would be T-Shirts, a media frenzy and the headlines "America back On Top" showing the damn DeathStar floating above the Earth.

-And the masses would LOVE it.

I am sad to say but I really think this would actually get bipartisan support and support by most people.

"Creating the DeathStar brings local jobs" could be plastered across pictures of happy families playing baseball and eating pie (fat free pie...)

Yup. The Eye in the Sky would be a big hit here I think.

If the US build a Deathstar then I'm going to start a petition in the UK for a Millennium Falcon to mitigate against the imperial US government.

I have a better petition to put to Obama/the White House:Stop using the taxpayers money for military purposes(the DoD already has the capacity to "defend" us all off the face of the Earth,im sure)and the DeathStar idea..Jesus..the mentality.How about a petition to pressure the UN to allot every family/household on Earth a very small little piece of land to have a few chickens,grow some veggies,a goat or a cow-and then leave us all alone.Natural selection will weed out the moochers too lazy to do an honest day's work to self-sustain,and people will be too busy working at feeding their families to think of # like building deathstar contraptions to blow up other planet.It should get more signatures,and from people with more than 2 brain cells too.

I thought Obama said he would definitely "not weaponize space". So was this his supporters who now demand him build a death star in space?

Jesse's just imagine all the resources that would go into building a Death Star. Does earth even have the resources available to build such a thing?

www.telegraph.co.uk...


Economists calculate the cost of building a Death Star

Star Wars fans hoping to build a real Death Star had better get saving – economists have worked out it would cost more than £541,261 trillion just for the raw materials. Is seems that while you should never underestimate the power of the Dark Side, you should also pay attention to the depth of their pockets.

Economics students at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania have calculated that it would require one quadrillion tons of steel to build a Death Star like those that featured in the movies.

It would cost 13,000 times the world's gross domestic product (GDP), or £541,261 trillion, to supply the steel for such a structure while labour and other construction costs would send the price even higher.

They also worked out it would take more than 833,315 years at current production levels to supply enough steel for the 87 mile diameter space craft.

In a tongue-in-cheek report on the Centives blog run by the Lehigh University economics students, they said: "We decided to model the Death Star as having a similar density in steel as a modern warship.

I've heard him make many claims and I heard claims falsely attributed to him but the not weaponizing of space is a new one to me.

Got a quoted source?

I appreciate the video.
That video alone is worthy of it's own thread for inconsistencies .

He was clearly pandering to his leftist base. But it was campaign time so...it was to be expected I guess. It's what the Left elected him for. The second time around he decided to pander to women and their desire for reproductive autonomy.

Just for funsies ( and the inevitable side effect of funsies, learning - whether it be through pain or luck ) - a thought....

the Whitehouse.gov petition sight doesn't cater to Obama supporters, or even Americans. It's basically a glorified blog site, one I would imagine designed to both make people feel more a part of the process. Also, I imagine that some highly paid sociologists or psychiatrists probably deduced that providing certain types of people with an active outlet might not only be healthy, but might also provide valuable intel on fringe groups. Oh, and it's a great way to data mine for public opinion - without having to lift a finger.

But to connect the current POTUS to what is posted there is sort of like suggesting that I just picked my nose because of Barack Obama.

Oh, and another funsie... One of the active petitions on that site is a petition to shut the site, itself, down. I damn near signed that one in a moment of thinking that I might well actually make a difference and stop America from being judged on what is nothing more than a meaningless side show. I mean we've reached a point, currently, when I am waiting to see the all caps thread title that says "Short Order Cook Burns Cheeseburger In Philly Diner: PROOF Obama Is Inept".

News flash. We aren't going to build a death star because 30 people sign a petition. We aren't even going hold a focus group or cabinet meeting to investigate the feasibility of building one. The most the death star petitioner can hope for is to get mentioned in a press briefing - and most likely not in a positive light.

In summary - idiots are forever. A potus has but eight short years to be held universally accountable for the actions of the collective.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm about to deliberately put on a pair of unmatched socks. So get the folks at Huffo and Brietbart primed.... I'm giving them pure speculative gold here. Tomorrows headline - "Obama influences online liberals to defy holy and ingrained sock tradition. Socialism marches further into our worlds.
