Some (little) people seem to get a kick out of
saying/posting "naughty" things. My kids certainly did when they
were 5-10 or so. Don't get started with a lot of these
clowns, as that just tends to keep them going. Ignoring
them completely usually gets them to take their toys
Otherwise, how have you been ? Any recent thoughts on making
the transition to the double X ?
Good luck with that jury summons intheblack -
maybe you will be lucky like me and get a civil trial
not involving $$ or cops, but child custody and can
spend 2 weeks listening to stories of shaken babies,
bruised infants, and alleged molestations - I even got to
be the foreman - wishing you the same opportunity to
do your civic duty..........
Well, it took you over a week to come up with an
example of wrong-way justice -- I guess you are swift in
the head department, after all. My rebuttal is simply
But I am STILL waiting for that
"punishment" that you stated the Senate is going to heap upon
ole Bill. Every day, ole Bill is getting closer and
closer to getting off as free as a lark. When is this
punishment going to occur -- in my life time? Why at this
rate, Hillary might be elected senator from N.Y in time
to vote on ole Bill's punishment -- now that would
be a hoot!
And as twisted as you want to
re-word things, my original statement addressed the
question potential jurors are ask: "would you give more
credibility to a police officer than to the defendant?" Your
example had nothing to do with a police officer being on
the stand and under oath -- something ole Bill
certainly took lightly. And the GOOD cops and GOOD
prosecutors would also love for me to be on a jury, but the
other side always "strikes" first.
BTW, I have a
jury summons for 22FEB ... I'll raise my hand for each
of the three juror questions in my original note.
Your liberal mindset just can't stand to believe that
a person can truly believe in a higher legal (and
moral) standard than do you.
valuable ... go find your new employer a bottled water
well ... it's worth more than a barrel of oil
Death Row inmate (16 years behind bars) released
in Chicago after witness admits he was pressured by
police implicate the poor guy and someone else
confessed. You need to stay off our juries with your
attitude of cop is always good, accused is always bad. Bad
cops and prosecutors would love your kind - one who
blindly accepts what the good guys want you to believe.
Another example of why one must go into a trial
open-minded. The jury probably came up with the right decision
based on what was presented them, but it goes to show
what can go wrong if police go overboard.
Big fat manuals describing systems, procedures,
and accountability that nobody reads, except those
unfortunates chosen to put them together and the ones who have
to approve them. I think the OIMS manual for
defecation on company property is the shortest at about 80
pages. I guess "on company property" is ambiguous. I
haven't bothered to read that particular manual, but I
bet 5 pages are dedicated to defining company
Does Exxon rely principally on 4 year degreed
professionals in EH&S or do you make use of Environmental and
Safety techs (without 4 year degrees or non-engineering
degreed) to assist the professionals?
Yes, OIMS still survives, but in name only. With
the tremendous staff reduction that Double cross has
endured, the OIMS requiremens are impossible to comply
with. OIMS adds tremendous cost to every project and is
bypassed as a result. To Exxons credit it was a great
dream but most of us have now awaken and understand
that this is the CYA tool for management to say that
the policies are there and of course they did not
know they were not being followed.
problem with OIMS is that is was written by mangement,
and as may be the case with most large corporations
and governemtn bodies, they are completely out of
touch with the real world. The best thing that could
happen to OIMS is a very large dose of reality.
One of the unwritten and obvious benefits of OIMS
is to isolate blame for anything that goes wrong.
I'm not saying that's good or bad, but it does
provide a mechanism for management to claim innocence if
a procedure is not followed by lower life level.
