May the Force Be With You

12 Jan

The U.S. Government provides a method of allowing citizens to petition the government electronically for a response.  When the petition garners over 25,000 electronic signatures in less than 30 days, than the White House will respond.

The petition that was stated:

Secure resources and funding and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.

Part of the White House response states:

“If you do pursue a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field, the Force will be with us! Remember, the Death Star’s power to destroy a planet, or even a whole star system, is insignificant next to the power of the Force.”

The Full White House response:  This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For

Paul Shawcross is Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget
