Debt Star (debt + death star)

The Star Wars science fiction movies featured the Death Star—a fictional space station capable of destroying a planet with its laser weaponry. In early 2009, a graphic poster was made of the Death Star with the 2008 Barack Obama presidential campaign logo on it and the words “DEBT STAR—THIS IS NOT THE HOPE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR” beneath it.

The term “debt star” is used to describe a powerful and evil debt-creating federal government in Washington, DC. “Debt Star: may the Farce be with you!” was also cited in print in 1993.


Wikipedia: Death Star
A Death Star is a fictional space station and superweapon appearing in the Star Wars science-fiction franchise created by George Lucas. It is capable of destroying an entire planet with its powerful superlaser.

And if it did --WOW!-- imagine the DS’s monthly power bill Empire citizens would have to pay to keep the gravity generators running! But more mind boggling yet: just imagine the multi-planetary governmental BUREAUCRACY required to fund, build, administer, and amortize it! I can easily picture their recruiting slogan:

“Debt Star: may the Farce be with you!”

No country that allows itself to be governed by the kind of people currently running the Debt Star in Washington will survive for long. Nor would any country deserve to.
