Fuck, he could employ every natural-born resident of the entire planet and in the process turn Tatooine into a TatooVegas. All your employees live in the cruiser. As they take it apart, they use the smaller structural bits to build proper dwellings, etc (seriously, the teensiest bits of salvageable material from an Imp-2 would make PERFECT building materials for one-or-two-story buildings). Once there's a house for every person who lives on Tatooine, keep building. Start with a KDY museum. There's enough working equipment on that hulk to have interactive exhibits about loading TIE fighters into their racks, reloading turbolaser vapor tanks, running a flight ops board... Shit, you could keep the whole bridge intact, replace the windows with computer displays and make a FORTUNE off LARPers, re-enactors and other simulator enthusiasts.
And what kind of person WOULDN'T want to visit the wreck of an actual Imperial Star Destroyer? What's your hobby? We got it. Spelunking? I've got a crashed Star Destroyer to crawl around in. Do you like beaches? We've made enough money off this hulk to build seven indoor beaches. All the fun, none of the cancer-causing EM frequencies of an actual sun. Video gamer? We've taken the engines out of two full squadrons of TIE Fighters and turned them into simulators.
Adrenaline junkie? We've taken the blaster cannons out of two full squadrons of TIE Fighters and have shuttles running to our deep-orbit docking facility twice a day. No experience? No problem. We've got a team of former Imperial flight instructors who won't even let you smell a real flightsuit until you've demonstrated utter competence in the simulator.
Are you a hunter? Dude. Have you ever seen a Krayt Dragon? They used to be on the Galactic Endangered Species schedule but we've been breeding them for decades. We fight them, we hunt them, we keep them as guard animals and we even eat them. Looking for Rancors? Go to Dathomir, you ignorant fuck. Rancors aren't indigenous to Tatooine.
The point is: whoever buys this thing might as well buy the farm while he's at it. If he can afford the price of one of the cruiser's KDY engines, he can afford the two or three square kilometers of sand.
I just have to ask: how long has this thing been sitting there and nobody's taken advantage of the ENORMOUS opportunities provided by it? If the movie asks me to believe this thing has been sitting there for 20 years and still looks that good, I call bullshit.
Got the fuck out of my country. Take your crazy-ass-bat-shit fiscal voodoo back to wherever the fuck your ancestors came from. Drop taxes on the rich and the corporations so that the rest of the population suffers? Fuck wits.
The House of Representatives voted to give a $270 billion tax break to the richest 0.2% of the population and to add the lost revenue to the federal debt. Why? Because it's immoral to tax people and take away their property, and the best way to fix that is to give the richest people in the country a tax break.
No plan was proposed to replace the lost revenue with something else or to reduce government spending by that amount. The plan was simply to add it to the federal debt. But of course there was no proposal to raise the debt ceiling either.
The Republicans make themselves look foolish all by themselves. It's amazing they can live with themselves. But most of them seem not to have the intelligence even to understand how stupid they are.
