    Ms. Kullman Declares Her Disdain For Chemicals

    The Kullman TEAM Pointedly Omits Any Mention of Chemicals In Their Fluff-Filled PR.
    Degrades Thousands of DuPonters Toiling in Chemicals.

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Buona Sera,

    Readers, It has long been obvious the delicate Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess, is uncomfortable around chemicals, basic intermediate and specialty. Her world is the kitchen. She just loves those beans and corn and food additives, not to mention questionable tasting stuff made out of soya.

    Or as one of her PR cheerleaders, Gregg Schmidt, chirped to the local paper, THE NEWS JOURNAL, on Feb. 5, 2013, as an excuse for dumping DuPont's auto paints, killing the careers of thousands and wiping out over $4 billion of DuPont's yearly revenues,

    “This transaction [Dumping DuPont Performance Coatings] is consistent with DuPont’s growth strategy of market-driven science, inclusive innovation and directing capital investments and R&D focus ON AGRICULTURE AND NUTRITION, BIOTECHNOLOGY and ADVANCED MATERIALS."

    Ah, yes...dirty ole "chemicals" like TIO2 are not mentioned. Nor are commodity materials such as Teflon or building supplies like Tyvek and Corian. What an insult to all those regular DuPont employees and workers who moil and toil in cheap cubicles or in the noise and fumes of the factory floor to produce the chemicals and related materials that help pay Ms. Kullman's towering $15 million pay cheque.

    Never mind that a big majority, nearly two-thirds of DuPont's business are chemicals and materials. Forget the fact DuPont embarrassingly lags the leaders in the targeted businesses of her infatuation:

    Lags Monsanto in seeds.
    Lags Syngenta in crop protection products.
    Lags Novozyme in enzymes and food additives.
    Lags numerous smaller outfits in bio-fuels and bio-stuff.

    We can only imagine how depressing and demoralising it must be for thousands of DuPonters dedicating their working lives in these degraded businesses, to be smacked in the face with Ms. Kullman's consummate disdain for chemicals and materials.

    Merely the evening commentary and perspective of one individual investor and long-time student of the Make-Believe NON-Chemical Chemical Company, DuPont...funfun..
