    Speaking of outsourcing and economic protectionism, my opinion is outsourcing at least in terms of customer service is a fucking joke.

    I call HP customer service the other day(first of all it took me two days to get through) then I get some dot head over in India who I cannot understand one friggin word of his English, I explain my problem, he talks to me(while every other sentence i've got to stop him and say "what the hell did you just say? I can't understand you") then he can't resolve my problem so I ask to speak to a supervisor, I stayed on the phone for an hour, no supervisor. 5 days later i'm unable to get through.

    Have you q-tipped your ears lately? We cannot afford to NOT take advantage of cheap labor pools abroad. Other corporations will, and we will fall behind the international corps of countries that DO outsource. See how it works?

    Fine. We would not longer be competitive internationally. The whole country would suffer eventually. Try some long term thinking.

    No it wouldn't, international trade is great, the selling and buying of goods is great. Outsourcing=bad, the quality of product goes down the dumper, customer service takes a dive, and what about the Americans who lost their jobs to outsourcing? Is your position to just say FUCK EM?

    The quality does not suffer. Your evidence is anecdotal, and not much different than domestic customer service, actually. They must adapt. We cannot limit ourselves with racist anti oursourcing laws.

    Hey OCA, you know who else is against outsoucing, Pat Buchanan. So actually he represents your views more than he represents mine, though you've accused be of being a Buchanan supporter to "smear me". Grow up.

    You obviously have no fucking clue as to what you're talking about. Compare a product made in China to one made here then get back to me. Have you had any experience with outsourced customer service? Seems to me i'm making a educated statement based upon experience, and you?

    I'll pose the question again: the Americans who lost jobs to outsourcing, is your position to just say fuck em?

    Racist anti outsourcing laws, how in the hell is that racist?

    Never said I don't agree with Buchannan on a couple of issues but I vehemently disagree with him on his hatred of Jews.

    Grow up LMAO!

    It's obvious you've always laughed at the notion of growing up.
