A good thing or a bad thing

A decision has been made making Obama the new president of the United States of America. This would definitely be a history in the making. To think that an African-American senator had been elected to be the head chief of a powerful country. Now as I've mentioned way back before, I'm not really into politics, not that I'm not interested but because it just gets me all hyper and stuff just talking about it.

The only thing that caught my attention was the fact that part of Obama's platform was to discontinue outsourcing from different countries. Making sure that an american family is assured of a job anywhere in the US. Of course it's not a bad thing, this is his way of getting through the people of America, but see the thing is this kind of business has been growing and expanding all over, specially here in the Philippines. The thing is, if he's going to stop outsourcing what'll happen to us here in the Philippines who mostly rely on getting a job as a call center agent because the pay's much better than regular day job in the government (if you're not corrupt, of course). What will happen to the people who had hopes of getting promoted to a better position, who had worked hard *cough cough* to get to where they are now. What a sad thing.

Tomorrow's my birthday. I'm going to be 21. Happy birthday to me.
