    That you really object to, it's whether the person doing the offshoring/outsourcing made money at it?

    If I offshore a bunch of jobs, but I don't personally benefit from it, that's okay, but if I make money at it, it's bad.

    I'm trying to follow your logic, but the cognitive dissonance here is beginning to make my head hurt.

    Why is it that I believe that you don't have a farts worth of experience with either outsourcing or offshoring?

      You're making up arguments for yourself to refute, asshole.

      Why is it I suspect you have way too much experience outsourcing, suckhole?

        From long before you got here to some other folks who confused offshoring with outsourcing.

        I also think that there are some people who have a lot of time invested in conflating and confusting these two terms.

        On a side note I would find the continuing statements on offshoring by the 'free trade' economists and groups like the ITAA absurdly funny if I wasn't an engineer and hadn't taken all of those logic and critical thinking classes. After ten years of college and a career which lasted almost exactly ten years before it came crashing down I instead now find some of these statements only stupid and self-serving.

        As to your response here, I predict you'll go far with the whole 'suckhole' argument.

        Pay particular attention to the first item in the list Ad Hominem, read it over and over again until you truly understand what it says.

          so that you could refute them.

          I don't think you really get to talk about logical fallacies or ad hominems, suckface.

          We don't have to conflate and confuse the two terms, because for firms like Bain, outsourcing is offshoring.

          Or are you illiterate too?

          Maybe it's about time you crawled back on up Romney's hole where came from?

      Stop pretending you're that dumb, or I'll just go on assuming you're a Wall Street tool who's being disingenuous.
