EXCERPT

Hello, I Am an Outsourceaholic
HuffingtonPost.com

Hello. My name is Gene Marks. And I am an outsourceaholic.

In this political environment, it's embarrassing to admit my habit. I frequently hang out with other outsourcers. I know, according to some, that these people are a bad influence on me and America. But it's a well-known secret that there are many outsourceaholics like me who binge on outsourcing. This is an unspoken epidemic in this country. For many of us, outsourcing is a quick high and a way to feel…oh, I don't know…cool and (dare I say it) profitable.

I selfishly hoard my best outsourcers from my friends so I can have them all to myself. I frequently pass out from the excitement of making money from outsourcing. Yes, I have employees. But in my heart, I'm an outsourceaholic. It is an addiction. And I see no cure. Why would I want to be cured of this anyway? It's just too appealing. Read more.
