Obama Predicts Star Trek and Star Wars Mega-Merger


President Obama recently let the cat out of the bag when he used the phrase “Jedi mind meld” when referring to his inability to get Congress to resolve the sequestration dilemma. See video.


With the Dow Jones industrial average flirting with a new high there has been a rash of mega-merger mania.  http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-02-20/business/37190427_1_antitrust-enforcement-antitrust-professor-antitrust-officials

Among the mergers are: 1. American Airlines and US Airways 2. Office Depot and OfficeMax 3. Heinz and Berkshire Hathaway and 4. Disney and Lucasfilm including Star Wars.

Now we have a new mega-merger to add to the list.

Star Wars and Star Trek (Disney and Viacom)

Recent actions by the Obama Administration point to such a merger.

1. The White House declared the Death Star to be Dead.  See https://michaelekelley.com/2013/01/29/death-to-the-death-star/

2. The Obama Administration is supporting drones everywhere instead of an army of battle droids. http://www.technovelgy.com/graphics/content08/droid-army.jpg

I am sure we will be seeing more of the following:


May the force be with you.

Death to the Death Star

Recently a White House Petition at the “We The People” website received the required 25,000 signatures.  This particular petition asked for the government to build a Death Star by 2016 to boost job creation and bolster national defense.


Because it received the required signatures, the White House had to respond. Thus Paul Shawcross, Chief of Science and Space at the White House Office of Management and Budget, formulated the following reply.

  • Financially
    • It costs $850,000,000,000,000,000
    • We need to reduce the budget not expand it.
  • Morally
    • The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
  • Practically
    • It is a flawed concept – can be exploited by a one-man starship.

Evidently the answer is no.  Maybe the next Administration will be more lenient.
