Interesting video (china thumbs nose at America)

for those of us hit by outsourcing...

china says thanks (and laughs) to the powers that be who decided that sending high tech, manufacturing and free market trade jobs overseas was a good idea for the future of the United States.
apparently this short "documentary" film won some awards at the sundance film festival (much to the embarassment of the US). the film seems rather long/boring (and it is) but the message in the text spells it all out.

between outsourcing and illegal immigrant workers taking all the jobs in America, where the hell are we going to end up, and what kind of legacy are we leaving for our children?!
some of you may remember me b*tching about china (kicking our asses) in the past. it hasn't taken them very long to take the opportunities we've granted them and have created a thriving upper middle-class of young high-tech professionals dubbed "chuppies" (chinese yuppies - there have been some recent reports in newsweek on this group if anyone's interested in digging further into this.) india seems to be thriving in this sector as well.

so a special thanks to all those IDIOTS who decided we high tech workers "made too much money" back in the height of the dot-com days and sent all our (my) work overseas.
STUPID A$$HOLES!!!



check it out the video if you're interested...

Yes, I talk to one of them every time I call tech support for, well, just about anything that has tech support. I asked one of them one time what country he was in, and he said he wasn't allowed to say.

not allowed to say where they're at? as if you don't know where they're from anyways...

you know you're in trouble when they answer the phone and say (in an indian accent of course):
"hi there, my name is Mike... how can i help you today?"

mike... rrrrrrrRRRRIIIGHT.
