Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon


I was speaking partly in jest and in part responding to another ranter, sorry, poster who was referring to kids studying like donkeys. It's unfortunate that these things themselves, as crazy as they sound, won't get you into the Ivy league, and that's definitely because of Asians. However, luckily for my (unborn) kid, I do not intend to apply only to Ivy league institutions, as there are many other good universities to choose from in the US of A.



Definitely correct - lots of good schools here and that really makes the US amazing!

Sure..there is a reason why we have not produced one. As I said, Indians till our generation had to focus on just surviving, let alone thriving. Studying and getting a job may sound so ordinary for you, but for India, it has been a boon. It has lifted millions of people out of poverty and basic survival is no longer the goal of ones life. Kids born today will not face survival challenges, they have the freedom to pursue their interests and it is inevitable for some one like Elon Musk to appear.





Ok cool - I gave my viewpoint and you did yours! I hope you are right - after all, my kid is also Indian American :-) I have always felt that the predominantly white American culture breeds creativity just because of the way they raise children; independent and creative. But I may be all baloney and I am all for accepting it.

Except this time, he is 83 years old and his replacement is the influential Romney. Hatch's bill is dead on arrival.

So what do you suggest? Indians from your community should move out and scatter across america so that every neighborhood is diverse? There is a reason you are living in that area.



Good one :-)) I dont know the answer - all I am saying is that the current trajectory is not ideal... Anyway, so be it - peace to all.

Just because Desis have not produced an Elon Musk, it doesn't mean there will not be one in the future.



Of course, I cant foretell the future but what I can say is that it is not by chance that we have not yet produced one!

Absolutely well put I think. Having diversity is very important for a vibrant culture. It should not be all white as it used to be, or all black as it is in many poor places, and it should not be predominantly Indian/Chinese as it is becoming in places in NJ/NY and parts of the North East. In fact, when I first came to my district, there was a great mixture of all communities and it was really super. Now it is all Indian.

Actually I take back that comment - I was all excited :-) What i was saying is that diversity is really good thing and unfortunately districts have now become dominant Indian in many districts. Having all white is as bad as having all Indian!

Desis are in rate race(rat race) and we are proud of it. The world is dog eat dog world run by single minded focus individual who let go so-called balanced life aka mediocrity to achieve higher goals in life.

If balance life means doing a janitor job 8-5 and then letting go steam at pub or golf then best of luck mate. We Desis are going to work harder to be leaders and rule over mediocre people like you.



By definition, people who win the rat race are.... rats!!! Not smart individuals who are creative and brilliant! So the aim is not to win ANY Rat race but rather be visionary which our Desi system will not provide. We will win multiple spelling bees, win every geography bee, but will not produce an Elon Musk.

Too late bro....the rat race is well underway, and there's nothing you can do to change it. I would like my kid to study like a donkey, learn 2-3 musical instruments and do volunteer work whenever free..because why not? :) Besides, how else will the kid get admitted to Harvard/Princeton/Stanford? You tell me!



Sorry buddy, All the things your kid would do; instruments, volunteer, etc dont mean anything anymore - will not even get th kid to the doorsteps of Ivy anymore. 4.0 GPA (unweighted) and 35 ACT will just about get you to the first step. The competition has become beyond ridiculous. And the kids that come out are unfortunately are no more creative or geniuses with all this!!! Asians have skewed the system and it is not for the good.

SO what is your problem if the schools are most upscale desi. huh.

indian kids work so hard . my kid is 6 grade and sometimes works till night 10 pm. totally focused for extra grade. even i did not work that hard when i was in 6 grade.

yes , what do you think, competition will go down . it will never go down. live with it or save money to goto Mars . may be you start a stupid bar and sit.



As I said earlier, if you can read, it is not a problem. My kids are also hard working and Indian, and are in this system and work like crazy. If you can read, I said there is loss of diversity - diversity is a good thing as all Indians here seem to keep preaching!! But when it is all Indian, it is so good?????

I never said about competition. Dont for a minute think Indians are only good and great - Americans are equally good and hence diversity is important.

But there is a unfortunate assumption here: Because Desis are doing IT work, they are somehow superior to Mexicans who are working as nannies and construction workers! A Desi cannot do hard labor - that's all it means. They cant build anything physically.. By the way, there are far far more Hispanics in the armed forces even in terms of percentage than Desis!! So it seems Hispanics are more committed to the defense of this country.,

In certain NJ schools more than 75% are Indians now, It is not bad just that all the diversity is gone and essentially have become Desi districts. The schools are now more like upscale Indian schools.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act



I did that a while back. But note, if you have costly medications to buy, you have to pay for it till the deductible kicks in. It still might be good, but HD plans with HSA are the way to go for most.



Investments with HSA funds is another option I use. 2017 increased the worth of the funds by around 30%



I did not do that - great idea in 2017 and maybe 2018

The senate also wants to provide some status to dreamer parents, unbelievable to see the Texas senators are negotiating, as they are the one who challenged DACA in court in the first place. Nothing will be there for legals or H4 dreamers in the senate version.



Exactly ! Unbelievable! I mean the parents came illegally as adults and yet they are finding some way for them re-enter legally! This is the definition of bs.

The main thing is that very influential organizations like Google, UC Berkeley are all for DACA but nobody (other than IV, of course) for legals.

The worst thing is now they is talk about Phase 2 where all issues sf skilled immigrants will be handled.. But when will Phase 2 come??? No chance in this year.... There will no pressure to handle it at all! After midterm, Yoder if he is re-elected will just move on and who will take up HR 392?? It is not his bill anyway
