I am personally wondering which "overseas" you're referring to.  Could
you be suggesting that jobs might be going "ovenseas" to the United
States? That sounds absolutely terrible! What sort of an impact will
that have locally?!? Jobs lost, wages cut - and you know the sort of
shoddy quality that you get from companies in the US, too...

Great suggestion, though - let's all complain about how the United States
is trying to steal our jobs, and force lousy products on us, and threaten
to switch vendors...


For crying out loud, can't you get it through your head that you're
posting to an -international- forum, which includes a goodly number of
people and posters that -aren't- in the United States, and find your
blatant presumptions naive and ill thought out, at best?
