If the Constitution was a EULA

For those that don’t know, a EULA is End User License Agreement. This is something that was created by Microsoft that is pretty much something an end user signs off on, on pretty much every application they ever use with a Microsoft environment. Slate (now owned by WSJ) is poking fun with something created by their previous employer.
All sections are amusing, here are a few excerpts:


The Freedom of Speech section of the Agreement is amended to distinguish between Regular Preferred Speech and Non-Preferred Speech. The Non-Preferred Speech rate applies to all speech which is not in good standing as defined under the “Preferred Citizen Rate Eligibility” section of your Agreement. Both the rate and your freedom of speech may vary based on changes in the National Terror Alert Level.


This amendment affects the Right to Privacy section of your agreement. Under the new terms, the Right to Privacy must be applied for on an individual basis. To apply for your Right to Privacy, you must send your full credit history, a copy of your party registration and church membership, a complete set of fingerprints, a DNA sample, and two (2) passport-size photographs of your bedroom to: National Privacy Registry, Washington, DC, 20012-3006, att: Doris.
