>REDMOND, Wash. - Oct. 21, 1997 -- In direct response to accusations made by 
>the Department of Justice, the Microsoft Corp. announced today that it
will be 
>acquiring the federal government of the United States of America for an 
>undisclosed sum.
>"It's actually a logical extension of our planned growth", said Microsoft 
>chairman Bill Gates, "It really is going to be a positive arrangement for 
>everyone".
>Microsoft representatives held a briefing in the oval office of the
>White House with U.S. President Bill Clinton, and assured members of the
>press that changes will be "minimal". The United States will be managed as a 
>wholly owned division of Microsoft. An initial public offering is planned
for 
>July of next year, and the federal government is expected to be profitable
by 
>"Q4 1999 at latest", according to Microsoft president Steve Ballmer.
>In a related announcement, Bill Clinton stated that he had "willingly and 
>enthusiastically" accepted a position as a vice president with Microsoft,
and 
>will continue to manage the United States government, reporting directly to 
>Bill Gates. When asked how it felt to give up the mantle of executive 
>authority to Gates, Clinton smiled and referred to it as "a relief". He went 
>on to say that Gates has a "proven track record", and that U.S. citizens 
>should offer Gates their "full support and confidence". Clinton will 
>reportedly be earning several times the $200,000 annually he has earned as 
>U.S. president, in his new role at Microsoft.
>Gates dismissed a suggestion that the U.S. Capitol be moved to Redmond as 
>"silly", though did say that he would make executive decisions for the U.S. 
>government from his existing office at Microsoft headquarters.  Gates went
on 
>to say that the House and Senate would "of course" be abolished.
>"Microsoft isn't a democracy", he observed, "and look how well we're doing".
>When asked if the rumored attendant acquisition of Canada was proceeding, 
>Gates said, "We don't deny that discussions are taking place".
>Microsoft representatives closed the conference by stating that United
States 
>citizens will be able to expect lower taxes, increases in government
services 
>and discounts on all Microsoft products.
>About Microsoft
>Founded in 1975, Microsoft (NASDAQ "MSFT") is the worldwide leader in
software 
>for personal computers, and democratic government. The company offers a wide 
>range of products and services for public, business and personal use, each 
>designed with the mission of making it easier and more enjoyable for
people to 
>take advantage of the full power of personal computing and free society
every 
>day.
>About the United States
>Founded in 1789, the United States of America is the most successful
nation in 
>the history of the world, and has been a beacon of democracy and opportunity 
>for over 200 years. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the United States
is a 
>wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft Corporation.
