The administration should do stuff like this more often with some of the completely ludicrous petitions on their website.

The only way they would consent to a clone army is with full citizenship rights and guarantees they would vote Democrat, so that strategy wouldn't work...

Probably the Mods realised that as soon as Mr Witty posted, the sense of humour would evaporate in favour of a cheap partisan generalisation.

Oh, fancy that!

But wouldn't the construction and operations of the Death Star create enough jobs for the unemployed and destitute in the country??

Construction would be outsourced to China, operations and support to Pakistan. We might be able to save at least a couple quadrillion dollars that way, but we would have to call it the Wal*Star.

Why when we can just use loopholes and print a 800 quadrillion dollar coin to buy a death star and the rest of the galaxy?
