About Me

If an H-1b has an American accent, they are probably not an H-1b. It's race, not citizenship. Americans are more diverse than you think. Millions of US citizens don't look the way you might expect. This fact is very important and will help us win elections.

The case for a 2023 US recession is crumbling


Many CEOs, investors and economists had penciled in 2023 as the year when a recession would hit the American economy.

The thinking was that the US economy would grind to a halt because the Federal Reserve was effectively slamming the brakes to squash inflation. Businesses would lay off workers and inflation-weary Americans would slash spending.

But the case for a 2023 US recession is crumbling for a simple reason: America’s jobs market is way too strong.

Hiring unexpectedly accelerated again last month, with employers adding an impressive 339,000 jobs in May. Not only is that more than any major forecaster expected, but it’s more jobs than the US economy added in any single month in 2019, a very strong year for the jobs market.

“This economy is incredibly resilient, despite all the slings and arrows – despite the banking crisis, rate hikes, the debt ceiling,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, told CNN in a phone interview on Friday.

Zandi is growing more confident that 2023 won’t be the year when a downturn will begin.

“For this year, given these jobs numbers, it’s hard to see a recession. Increasingly, the odds of a recession this year are fading,” Zandi said. “A lot of economists who have called for a recession are now in the uncomfortable position of pushing back the start date.”

Republicans want it really bad. You can see their disappointment when there is good economic news like the jobs numbers. Boo hoo for them

Indian restaurants popping up along trucking routes


Punjabi drivers make up close to 20% of the U.S. trucking industry
Ex-trucker: Couldn't find enough places to eat, biggest community issue
Restaurant owner: "It is the American dream"

(NewsNation) — Truck stops are being reimagined across the country, as a record number of Indian restaurants have been popping up along the biggest U.S. trucking routes.

For many truck drivers, there aren’t a lot of options on the road beyond fast food. However, the increase in Indian restaurants is fueling the trucking community and helping them get where they need to go.

In western Oklahoma, along the famous Route 66, hundreds of drivers flock to Truck Stop 40 at Exit 26.

“This place is right in the middle of the United States and this place is famous for our homemade Indian food,” restaurant owner Amar Singh said.

Singh’s restaurant has been around since the early 2000s. Aside from just one sign at Exit 26 along the historic Route 66, the restaurant has no advertising. Word of its existence is spread solely by word of mouth.

Indians are stealing jobs from truckers and truck stops during a trucker shortage!
