Outsourcing Blues!!

While the workers in many American factories and service industry contemplate about the impending doom of their jobs about to be outsourced, India and China on the other hand are fiercely competing with each other for those jobs. As a growing phenomena in the American workplace, its not uncommon for our average American murgha to loose out his job to the hard-working and ever-ready Harold & Kumar. Making a murgha out of the middle-class Americans, the Indians and Chinese are willing to take over all sorts of jobs for a fraction of the cost. And whats with all the complaining about American jobs!! Can someone please tell these fools that there is no such thing as an 'American job'. Wake up from the American Dream and start living in the true reality of globalization. However, I would never argue that there is a certain job that will always stay with Americans since they are so darn good at it : the tough job of taking over sovereign regimes in the name of liberty and democracy. China and India are in no mood to compete for those job, so whoever is scared of being outsourced should join the US Army. They have a number of long-term projects coming up such as Iran and North Korea.

As for outsourcing homework to India, check out www.rentacoder.com and www.guru.com. There are many Harold and Kumars on these sites who are more than willing to do your homework for $5 - $100 via email. And the best thing about it all is that you can always charge it to daddy dear's credit card, assuming daddy still has his job and it hasn't been outsourced to Harold & Kumar as well; just not as yet!!

"China and India are in no mood to compete for those job, so whoever is scared of being outsourced should join the US Army." Too true!

We, the Indians, are simply doing business. Its the Amreekan society and Amreeka that is giving us business. This is simple business. They make profit by reducing the cost and we by earning the US$. One US$ = 40 Indian Rupees so If I am being paid 10 US$ per hous, dirt cheap, and I work just 8 hours a day I am earning 60K+ per month.
Lol, the long term projects.
