The weekend! And it seems like the political news has slowed down some, or is that just me? Anyway, I do hope that you have plans to enjoy this warm weekend.
So the people who have been screaming about STOPPING SPENDING petitioned the White House to build a Death Star. Like a Star Wars, I am your father, Death Star. It got enough signatories for the White House to respond. And their response is: Uh, No. Staring with the very funny title — This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For — the official White House reasons for not building a Death Star include:
- The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
- The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
- Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
No matter what you think of these people, when they turn on the wit and humor, they’re good.
Closer to home, NCCo Assistant Attorney Edward Danberg quits over the county changing its position vis the traffic study that wasn’t done before approving the re-zoning of Barley Mill Plaza. The traffic study *should* have been done, no question. But not telling one of your Attorneys of Record in a lawsuit defending the decision that the County is changing course is an unforced error.
