    Folks, some intelligent investors and traders may be belatedly coming to the conclusion Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess, is not going to be successful in giving DuPont a Monsanto Makeover, and making the DuPont Company an extension of her kitchen with corn and soya and food ingredients. ...funfun..

  • Graduate of A First-Tier Law School, University of Michigan

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, apparently after all the hiring and promotion under its mandated Diversity Model for a couple of decades, DuPont Senior Management could not find anyone in-house to succeed the ageing and weary current DuPont General Counsel & Senior V. P. about to retire, Tommie Sager, Esq. Sager's claim to fame: not hiring or firing outside law firms which did not have sufficient colour or female gender. Sager also promoted hiring in-house and advancement as a function of pigment or gender. Old-fashioned 1970's style affirmative action, merit-free selection, dominated DuPont LEGAL for years. Sager even got a Diversity trophy named after him at a non-profit.

    Back to Stacy Fox, who indeed and in fact earned her position on the basis of extraordinary merit and accomplishment. She is a graduate of the prestigious University of Michigan Law School, one of the top ten law schools in the country. Before DuPont, Ms. Fox was the Executive V. P. of Legal Affairs for Visteon, and Senior Vice President & General Counsel for Sunoco.

    Ms. Fox will have her work cut out for, directing DuPont's army of little known lawyers from little known schools with a rather dismal track record in litigation in recent years (as Monsanto's attorneys know with some amusement). Ahead of her, Ms. Fox will have many uphill battles with the truculent bosses of DuPont convincing them of comply with the laws of the land and honour contracts with competitors and suppliers and most importantly, customers. She will undoubtedly be shaken from time to time with Imprelis-size issues of fraud and unethical business practices historically rife at DuPont. We wish her well.

    Merely the morning commentary and perspective of one individual investor and long-time student of DuPont

    in decline...funfun..

  • Trying To Give DuPont a Monsanto Makeover. Won't Work!

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno,

    Readers, One telling sign of Monsanto's superlative success in the 21st century: Imitation.
    Belatedly, Ellen J. Kullman, "Chair" & CEO of the DuPont Company is grappling with her unwieldy Delaware-based conglomerate, trying rather futilely to be the next Monsanto. To this end, Ms. Kullman has ditched $5 billion-a-year in auto paints, along with glass products. Next year, 2015, she is jettisoning her chemicals, including Teflon, TIO2, refrigerants, acids, undsoweiter to look more like agricultural powerhouse, Monsanto.

    Trouble for Ms. Kullman is the gap between Monsanto and DuPont continues to widen. Monsanto is the undisputed world-leader in the production and sale of seeds, and seed biotechnology. Monsanto also leads the much shrunken and shrinking DuPont in sales of ag chemicals/crop protection, as does Syngenta, Bayer, BASF, and Dow Chemical.

    In the meantime, DuPont Management is compelled every year to shell out hundreds of $millions in license fees to Monsanto in order to put Monsanto's superior genetically-modified traits into DuPont Pioneer's otherwise conventional seeds.

    It will be a long, long time before Monsanto is dethroned as the outstanding global powerhouse in agriculture by any competitor, particularly the lumbering and bureaucratic DuPont conglomerate.

    Folks, the more resentfully uneducated hecklers cheer Ms. Kullman and protest any contrary opinion by launching childish personal attacks, the more you know this lagging Delaware conglomerate is way behind its world-leading competitors, Monsanto, Syngenta, Novozymes, BASF and Dow Chemical. ...funfun..

    How comical that the unethical trash in the GM Management camp cannot even tolerate a solo voice from a single retail investor who refuses to be brainwashed by Barra Beijing-style! What a sick, hyper-defensive organisation. What are they so frightened of; what are they continuing to hide? What vital records and documents have been destroyed or deleted under some sort of systematic records destruction commanded by Ren Sin? ...funfun..

  • funfundvierzig funfundvierzig Jun 8, 2014 12:00 PM Flag

    Ah..yes...the continued retention of Block & Jenner with long and lucrative ties to GM Management and GM, and $millions in legal fees changing hands, screams "CONFLICT OF INTEREST" so loudly that even a developmentally challenged adult might understand! ...funfun..

    The Anton Valukas Report is Brutal

    funfundvierzig funfundvierzig Jun 8, 2014 11:55 AM Flag

    Robert DiNiro, even two or three of the unethical low-level lawyers in GM Legal might recall from their days at second or third-tier law schools, that truth is a solid defence to any false charge of libel or defamation. Plus, and this sends us into uncontrollable laughter, they would have to show damage to GM's reputation! ...funfun..

  • funfundvierzig funfundvierzig Jun 8, 2014 11:45 AM Flag

    More trash talk from the unethical trash in the GM Management camp, folks,

    They will launch any sort of vile defamation or personal smear to attack critics and to distract from the waxing GM scandal and consumer fraud! What a sick, severely troubled car-maker.

    Gotta laugh at their desperation to fake a benign "NEW GM" IMAGE.

    ...funfun..

  • Folks, the old GM is alive and well as it was fifty years ago, when a dirty-operating GM Management took after Ralph Nader on a sleazy personal level, for raising questions of safety and integrity at General Motors. " Unsafe at Any Speed" has become "Unsafe at No Speed" int the case of the Chevy CoBALK.

    A week ago, June 2, 2014, in a readers' forum of a CNNMoney article on GM, several of our comments questioning the faked death count figure of only "13" and the integrity of GM Management were deleted, CENSORED by CNNMoney without explanation or warning. We strongly suspect but cannot prove GM PR operatives or agents put pressure on CNNMoney, which, as you know, gets big bucks from GM in advertising.

    Last night, we were threatened with libel by an obvious shill for GM Management on this GM Yahoo! Finance board for daring to question the real reason for the White-Washing Valukas Report and its bias (as several U. S. Senators have already done publicly!).

    The brazen misconduct of rabid supporters and shills for GM Management speaks volumes on the deep-down corruption of this consumer fraud-driven American car company.

    Fellow Investors & GM Shareholders, you will notice now how the abusive and unethical operatives and fans in the GM Management camp are now threatening the undersigned with "libel", and the potential of a financially crippling lawsuit, in order to shut us up and shut us down. This particular shill for GM Management is aping the arrogance of the GM leadership team he or she is frantic to protect.

    We are not about to be CENSORED Beijing-style by GM Management, and hold tenaciously to our opinion (which is also the opinion of more than one U. S. Senator) that this report is a clever White-Wash designed to absolve GM Senior Management of all actionable blame! A well-done criminal legal defence.

    You entirely miss the point. We are not impugning or attempting to impugn his credentials. Mr. Valukas performed as he was retained to perform, as a criminal defence lawyer for GM Senior Management and GM. The report was a White-Wash for the top bosses of GM.

    It this were truly an "independent" investigation as Ms. Barra and her PR con artists are pretending, a prosecuting attorney with not ties to GM would have been brought in and paid for by either the state or federal authorities or Congress.

    Folks, as you can see by the viciously vindictive harassment and heckling by the unethical trash in the GM Management camp, things must be pretty bad in Ren Cen. All these bitter protectors and proponents of GM Management can do is launch childish personal attacks to distract and evade open and free discussion amongst investors on critical GM issues. Ms. Barra should be keenly embarrassed over her fan club, many of whom are resentfully uneducated and ignorant. It doesn't look good for Ms Barra and GM to be so obviously represented by the lower mental class.

    Fellow Investors and GM Shareholders,

    How bad is the damage to the GM reputation? Tellingly, Fortune is out with a provocative write-up Thursday, June 5, 2014, entitled,


    "Could GM Be Charged With Murder"?


    It is not infeasible GM could be charged with manslaughter. Folks you know sleaze has drenched Ren Cen, when famous business journals carry commentary like this!

    Anton Valukas is a distinguished Chicago criminal defence lawyer specialising in white collar crime. He did what was best for his clients, the top dogs of the intractably corrupt General Motors Company, with whom he has had a long and lucrative relationship. It was not an "independent" investigation; it was a superb legal defence for you-know-who! ...funfun..
