While I find the response funny as a whole, I find it especially laughable that the Drunk-Sailor-Spender-in-Chief had the audacity to say building a Death Star would cost too much. All while demanding the Congress relinquish its control of the debt limit, mind you.

That response was awesome! I'm surprised to see anything out of the White House without a ton of legalese surrounding it.

Lots of funny articles lately, although I'd say that watson learning the urban dictionary and using the word bullshit in a medical diagnosis takes the cake...

Yes, we have a space station but we can no longer get to it without help.

Partially incorrect. We can already send the uncrewed Dragon capsule to the ISS, and SpaceX is hard at work on the Dragonrider crewed capsule.

How about we instead modify the moon to become a "Death Star"? It you be much cheaper. Instead of blowing up planets, we could use it against an alien invasion.

Man wearing black cloak addresses the reporters.

He waves his hand from one side to the other while saying.
"We are not building a Death Star."

Reporters:
"You are not building a Death Star."

1. About that cost...........
If we get congress to take a pay cut and get rid of their retirement package, we might just be able to afford it.
2. About the fundamental flaw, we could get some wiener dog lasers mounted in the area to defend the core. (They've got to be better than the Imperial Storm Troopers at shooting things.)
3. And then there's the 'blowing up planets' thing. I say we blow this one and start over. Maybe, just maybe, we've learned a little something from the mistakes we've made on this one.

I do believe your third point is proof against itself.

Arrogant meddling with nature is what got us in trouble in the first place. Continued and repeated arrogant meddling has only served to aggravate the original problem.

Seems to man has not learned that leaving things alone is sometimes the best solutions. Man is a flawed creature that ignorantly thinks he can use improve things that have persisted since long before him.

That being said, I'm for the Death Star. Though I think the private sector could do exceedingly better than the government.

not to mention point 4 was just a one in a million shot from a very lucky Mr. Skywalker- who may have had insider information about the Death Star's weakness the Alliance obtained from his father. Not very likely a second time around- especially if we can send a Terminator back/forward in time to eliminate Mr. Skywalker.

The Terminator vs Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Now that's some fight I'd like to see! Maybe we can have the T-101 secretly trained by Darth Sidious/Palpatine as a replacement for Darth Maul.
