When the economy gets tough, the tough hire family coordinators

Multnomah County (home of the unopened jail and naked bike riders) now hiring...

Family Involvement Coordinator - Bilingual Spanish
$35,934.48 - $44,244.72 annually
A 4% bilingual pay premium will be added in addition to the base pay.

The Family Involvement Coordinator is responsible for the day–to-day operation of the Family Involvement/Parent Education portion of the new 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant that will serve Lynch Wood Elementary School.

Conduct home visits, as needed, to help remove barriers and enable families to access needed services. Develop strong referral system within 21 LCC coordinators to serve both parents and children. Develop and maintain sound, accurate record keeping & documentation systems including use of a database.

In a nutshell: Through the government school you will find Spanish speaking families, go to their homes to make sure they are getting all the welfare they can and then make a database tracking that information.

At least in this case I probably can't complain about government "tracking US citizens" with that database...

Sounds like they're doing a good job.

Family Involvement Coordinator - Is that like a "Community Organizer"? Or in The B-HO's case, Ward Heeler? And before all you libs get your knickers in a twist, this is sarcasm, nothing more.

I used to be employed in a similar position. I can assure you that the coordinator will serve both anglo and hispanic families.

As for you "scottiebill," you may laugh at Palin's joke about community organizers, but it may have cost McCain a few million votes. Several million Americans toil away in jobs that fall under that category. Indeed, President-elect Barack HUSSEIN Obama community organized his way right into the Oval Office. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Daniel -- scouring the job announcements again, eh? Did you employ your "word detector" and dig up more diversity? How's your servant-wife's state job coming along?

So my Tax dollars pay a good salary & benefits & retirement only to someone that can speak Spanish in America, for this person to actively seek out others that speak only spanish in America, to get even more of my tax dollars and so more of my money is spent to make sure even more of my money is spent.
Per law you have to speak English to be a citizen so maybe some of these tax leeches are illegal aliens, who by legal definition are not supposed to be here.

And that is good for the economy? How?

Why do we not have the right to tell our government that they can't create these jobs with our money, period.

Daniel, Thank you for pointing out this absolute and probably illegal abuse of our money, again.

We have to grow social programs and socialism in a bad economy. It's called "job creation." lol

Fucking morons.

Yeah, Scottieshill didn't read the latest on his Piggy Palin. Seems like his sort of down home Walmart hockey mom turned into an upstreet snootie money bag skank. Now before you piggy lovers get your panties in a twist, this is just sarcasm.

As for the Family Coordinators, sounds like a great idea. Seems like Daniel's family could benefit from one.

I used to work as a vendor to the Clackamas Cnty. health clinics, and I can tell you that more than half of their "clients" were Spanish speaking Hispanics. I would guess that the majority were illegals. They also took advantage of the WIC program.

Well after years of them abusing the system (a nurse told me that none of them paid their bills) the county is in the process of closing ALL of the clinics, the last one being phased out in 2010.

I guess Mult. County has a ways to go before they are bankrupt also. At this rate it won't be long.

Well that is 6 month longer than lazy whites. Ever wonder why it is so easy for undocumented immigrants to get jobs?

Anon 522: No where in my post did I mention or refer to Sarah Palin in any way. Are you and your ilk so obsessed with her that you read something negative about her into every thing you read. You could probably find something negative about her in a used car ad. You really ought to try and get a life. Jeeeez!

Scottiebill said...

Anon 1057: you are just as bad, if not worse than Anon 522. You need to get a life, too.

You are witnessing history, you are living it now, we are done as we knew it.

I know what I will do about it!!

Hopefully with it goes hatespeech. Lord knows you conservatives are the biggest culprits.

You would never know it from reading all the liberal hate speech being posted the various and sundry anonymouses posting here.

antiklan said...

Funny, Trasha's blog got shut down. I suspect her Word press one is next. Just to be sure, I will send an email to them.

She is a prime example of your side's hate speech there, Scottie. Maybe you should open your eyes, son.

I THINK THIS IS DEAD ON---

Friends,
Will you please take the time to read this, and if you think it worthwhile, pass it along to your email list, and ask them to read it? Even if they voted, with all good intentions, for Mr. Obama?

I am a student of history. Professionally. I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied it all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes, these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten - fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.
We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learn just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the 700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?). We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic.

To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government, our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and know precisely what I am talking about)–the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x ten. And we are at war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by d rip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No?

Oh of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more important.)

Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: change.

Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure.


Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning.

And I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the "savior" was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing.

What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully them into submission. And then, he was duly elected to office, a full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department by department, person by person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world.

He did it with a compliant media–did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and . . . change. And the people surely got what they voted for.
(Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.)

Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker.

He was right, though.

Don’t forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years–a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency–it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course.

The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me.

Some people scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. Perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe–and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am.

Best regards.

Wow, an American that can think. Anon 6:19, I have never been into the conspiracy theories. I think you may be right, we seem to have legislators now who seem to care more about mexico than America. It may be time to use that 2nd Amendment reset button. I thank God every day that I was born an American. Unlike Michelle Obama, I am more proud every day to be an American. However, I do fear for my country. I am a veteran and swore an oath to defend my country against domestic and foreign enemies. Our domestic enemies are a much greater danger than foreign ones.

Dear ANON 2:15.

I served as a door gunner from 66-69, I should have died at least 200 times, but a Marines desire to stop them before they got me ,has allowed me to write this post.

It is a fact for some(not all) the first time in combat you know you kill a man, it grabs you hard.

It is also a fact....it get's easier over time, and your desire to live another day kicks in.

I'm near 62, my son served 3 tours as a Marine in Iraq, he said exactally what I just said.

But you know what? It will be much harder here in our own country then killing to live another day in a land 8-10 thousand miles from this post tonight.

WTF am I saying then, I PREDICT, that the time will come and there will be a line some people will cross, and there will be fighting here...we will like the Civil war...kill one another...for many reasons it would seem, but maybe if you keep pushing some of us, it will happen, I WILL fight for what was my country, I will defend what 4 generations of my family defended, and the first time it happens here, if what I think will happen, It will be like 1966 in NAM,it grabbed my heart and soul to take a life....BUT TRUST ME, IT GET'S EASIER.

I was never in combat, I was in the Army in the second half of the eighties. However, I have a grandchild and will do whatever it takes to protect the kid and my country.

I have been thinking about the current economic situation lately. All the bullshit globalism and open borders we have currently. I don't think anytime in our countries history have our politicians been so corrupt and treasonous.

Most Americans are blind to the facts. The internet is a great information source and they fail to use it wisely. The main problem that I see is that so many Americans have become so complacent. There are so many unanswered questions about Obama. So many of our current politicians are on the take from other countries like mexico and china.

Dear anon 12:03 am:

ASSUME...great word, and you are the ass, that U assume, I'm a racist.

I served in Nam with AMERICANS...NOT EVEN AFRICAN-(HATE THE HYPEN)AMERICANS, BUT AMERICANS, The blood they shed was red, not green, or blue, and you know what, I washed the deck of my chopper too many times not to see what color of blood we all shed.

I hate your assuming that I'am what you so want to color me with.

I hate your president, but I admire in a weird way his honesty, he has told you to your face that he will kill so many things that many AMERICANS DIED FOR.

1ST AMENDMENT...2ND AMENDMENT, TAX UNFAIRLY,ASSOCATIONS WITH PEOPLE THAT WOULD DENY A SECURITY CLEARENCE TO MOST PEOPLE, GEORGE SOROS,CONTINUE THE CLINTONS,NO CHANGE THERE, SO HE LIED AS WELL.

You have no commonsense, your support for him based on the principals of the "founding documents and his intolerence for them

Yeah...I think once people are pushed so far, you can then expect to be pushed back...were just all animals..you get me cornered, you will get hurt in the process, COUNT ON IT!

Here is a man who's raw courage under fire,was tested 4 times, he used a word,I thought he would never use...IT SURE GOT MY ATTENTION.
