Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?

That's pretty good.

These fucking liberals have no idea how important national offense is. I mean, if we can't blow up planets, how are we supposed to succeed as a superpower in the 21st century?

"Even though the United States doesn't have anything that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we've got two spacecraft leaving the Solar System..."

My God, he sprays that whole response with Star Wars references. He's either a genuine nerd, or took the time to come across as one. Either way, kudos. That actually seems pretty thoughtful to me.

You all know the government is lowballing that $850 quadrillion number. It's probably more like $2.7 quintillion dollars.

Anyway, it will likely be in the defense budget next year.

Why are people thanking Obama? He didn't write the response at all. He most likely wasn't involved at all.

"Thanks Obama" is a sarcastic phrase that's been used since like the day he was elected whenever something happens. It's not a "meme" and if it upsets you then I'm laughing at you.

I'm with simply because unlike other memes this is one I can get behind since its satirically making fun of all of the idiots that blame everything in america on Obama. And exposing that absurdity is just dandy with me.

It's a shame they had to bring up religion in this:

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.

Hokey religions are no place in a world of Science. I for one put my faith in the technology at my side.
