The Once and Future American Empire

Here is a suggestion that is out of the box thinking, or perhaps better said out of this world thinking. Since this country is going broke in its seeming attempt to dominate the world, the folks over at zerohedge suggest we should do it in a big way, and with some style – build the Imperial Death Star. It would cost an epic 852 quadrillion dollars, but since Congress hasn’t balanced a budget in decades, what difference would it make. And just think of the boost to the economy! There seems to be a technical issue with the amount of iron available on the surface of the planet, but there is plenty in the core. No issues there I’m sure. Just think how cool our response would be if someone tries to make us pay off our foreign debt. Awesome!
