Comments: To Infinity, And BEYOND!

I fear that we are witnessing the beginning of the end of the United States, certainly as I grew up knowing it.

Damned shame.

Being a Rocket Scientist would be great, insofar as I have no idea what one does... sounds good, though. :D

The rest just makes me sad for our country. We knew the slope was slippery when outsourcing started so many years ago and it's come to this... I'm afraid Jim is right. :/

I would be very afraid of what is only now starting to happen in the military outsourcing business ..

Been there, done that, have the t-shirt.

If you don't think things will get worse for military business just take a look at the auto industry right now, more stuff is outsourced then is built by any automotive company (american and japanese).

Wow - I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you! I am sure the perfect something is just right around the corner...

I hear there's lots of jobs as maids and lawn mowers that Americans won't do...and you've obviously got lots and lots of experience with one of those two... ;)

Nah, good luck! I'm fighting the same battle with computer science, believe me!

Can I tell you that my husband (an engineer) is constantly worried about this little issue of outsourcing secrets. As you say - it is what it is and really we've brought it on ourselves with all the pressure on reducing costs (at any price - heh). I know (don't just think, but KNOW) we will one day find out just how much that price reduction will cost us. *sigh*

I am so hoping you get the Spaceman Spiff job - that would be awesome!
