“…there are two distinct groups, hypochondriacs and alarmists. Both suffer in their own ways, and traits of one group may overlap the other, but whether you’re a hypochondriac or an alarmist, at this point in time, either is probably better than being a Republican.”
Ah, heck, go ahead; build a “Death Star”.
It will help the economy.
Jobs, jobs, jobs.
$850 quadrillion (however much that is) could create at least a billion jobs.
Do the math.
Well, maybe don’t do the math.
It may take too long.
Go ahead, get going, and start building this “Death Star”.
We need a defense against Planet X, or some other planet that may want to blow up the earth (before we have a chance to.)
Halliburton needs the business, what with two wars about to end.
And why wait for Jeb Bush to win in 2016.
Build the “Death Star” before it’s too late.
Let’s not disappoint the Mayans one more time.
P.S., $850,000,000,000,000,000=850 quadrillion

WASHINGTON (AP) - A "Death Star" won't be a part of the U.S. military's arsenal any time soon.
More than 34,000 people have signed an online petition calling on the Obama administration to build the "Star Wars" inspired super-weapon to spur job growth and bolster national defense.
But in a posting Friday on the White House website, Paul Shawcross, an administration adviser on science and space, says a Death Star would cost too much to build - an estimated $850 quadrillion - at a time the White House is working to reduce the federal budget.
Besides, Shawcross says, the Obama administration "does not support blowing up planets."
The U.S., Shawcross points out, is already involved in several out-of-this-world projects, including the International Space Station, which is currently orbiting Earth with a half-dozen astronauts.
IT’S ABOUT RENEWABLE RESOURCES STUPID!
