White House answers petition to build a Death Star

It seems the Internet has made it so easy to start a petition that the White House must respond to…regardless of the insanity of the petition itself, it seems you can find enough crazy people on the Internet to elicit an official response now.
Recently, one of the more interesting petitions received the necessary 35,000 signatures to require a response – “Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.” And let’s just say, the official response was perfect.
I like it when otherwise serious folk are allowed to show off some humor on such things.
I’m just wondering…a Death Star would only cost $850 quadrillion? Can we mint enough Platinum Coins for that?
