If you hang out here regularly, you probably saw RF’s notice to fans of the Galactic Empire everywhere that, thanks to the White House web site, you can express your desire to see the Death Star become a reality. Hell, you may have already signed it, since it’s registered well over 25,000 supporters so far. Reader Don N. appears to need more to do at work because he’s been rooting around, looking through all the other petitions on the White House’s site. And looky, looky what he found! A petition urging President Obama to veto any attempt to reinstate a federal “assault weapons ban.” Now there’s an initiative anyone can get behind, whether you back the Emperor or the white hats in the Rebel Alliance. Trouble is, this one only has about 12,700 signatures so far. We need to do something about that. Perhaps we can find new ways to motivate you . . . .
