White House Celebrates Star Wars Day, Still Refuses To Build A Death Star

Even though the White House is celebrating Star Wars Day, they're still refusing to build a Death Star.

A December 2012 "We the People" petition urged the White House to go where it has never gone before by constructing a "Death Star" by 2016 to "strengthen our national defense." The Obama Administration shot down the dreams of Star Wars fans everywhere in January, claiming it "does not support blowing up planets."
