    It is telling that the local Wilmington, Delaware newspaper, THE NEWS JOURNAL, whose writers and editors are little more than PR puppets for DuPont executives, after a very brief mention of the La Porte tragedy last weekend, has maintained a BLACK-OUT on all important news subsequently emanating from Texas and beyond.

    The silence and suppression in Fortress Wilmington, drawbridge up tightly, speaks not so eloquently to the sheer degradation of regular DuPont workers moiling and toiling in danger inside this callous conglomerate.

  • How Many Tens of $Millions Will It Cost DD Shareholders?

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Investors, the abusive CYBERBULLYING and retaliatory harassment waged by obvious protectors and proponents of DuPont Management over the internet at various news and investment sites is a dead giveaway something is terribly wrong in this costly disaster. How much will it ultimately cost in total, and how much is this barricaded toxic waste site costing every day? When will La Porte be fully opened for business, and will that activity be more monkey business?

    We have already picked up on one nasty PR and legal defence: The disdainful implication of one hate-filled heckler who insinuates the five victims, four dead, one critically injured are to blame for their own horrible fates. Ah...yes...the sleazy BLAME-the-VICTIM PR & legal trick employed by DuPont shills as well by GM's dishonest Management in attacking the surviving families and their attorneys in the aftermath of fraudulently vending tens of millions of deadly defective GM cars.

    It appears the CORE VALUE of DuPont is SLEAZE. And that cannot be good for its shareholders, can it?

    Folks, as you can readily see, the gross, if not criminal negligence in running these ill-maintained DuPont chemical factories about to be dumped next year must be a tad bit embarrassing. An abusive heckler and shill for DuPont Management with a confusing fake "funfun" I. D. continues to engage in CYBERBULLYING to shut down open and candid discussion on disastrous developments sandbagging Dow Chemical's major but lagging competitor, the shrinking DuPont conglomerate.

    Any corporation whose avowed agents and advocates have to resort to vicious ad hominem attacks on readers with independent viewpoints is one sick, unethical operation. Such is the DuPont Company. No wonder, Dow Chemical zoomed far ahead of DuPont in the 21st century.

    Finally notice how this sleazy proponent and protector of DuPont Management is insinuating that the five victims, four dead, one critically injured were to blame for their horrible fate! Sick, indeed. DuPont's La Porte Plant was hit with 51 violations of environmental and safety laws and regulations, including serious toxic releases in the past five years.

  • No Inspection by OSHA for Seven Years

    Good Afternoon, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Folks, DuPont La Porte was an insidious deathtrap for years. Progress Thinking is reporting that "the La Porte plant has not been inspected by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for seven years, and that during the last inspection it was 'issued two serious violations for the safe management of highly hazardous chemicals, which could result in toxic or explosive risks.' The plant was fined a total of $3,400."

    "According to the Texas Tribune, in the last five years, the plant has also been 'cited at least two dozen times by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality” for failing to “perform routine safety inspections, keep equipment in proper working order and prevent unauthorized pollution leaks'.”

    As a matter of classic DuPont DuPlicity, DuPont "leaders" actually market the Company's services in SAFETY for which they charge customers fat fees! OMG, what a rip-off. What do DuPont Managers teach? How to cheat on compliance, skirt the rules for handling toxic and explosive chemicals, and save big bucks by exposing disposal workers to all manner of deathly risks?

    Accompanying World War I, DuPont as a munitions supplier, got the reputation of "Merchants of Death". Today, a century later, DuPont Management is following tradition..

  • Bad for Her PR IMAGE & IMAGE of Dow Chemical Competitor! Disassociation Demanded by PR Con Artists at DuPont and Her In-House Little Known Lawyers from Little Known Schools?

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno, Buenos Dias,

    Readers,

    It has been six full days since the deadly tragedy at DuPont's grossly mismanaged La Porte, Texas chemical factory, and the DuPont CEO & "Chair", Ellen J. Kulllman, who hauls down $15 million a year in pay, has yet to say a single public word on this Company tragedy of four horrible deaths, not a word of explanation or
    compassion or reassurance to investors, customers, and most importantly to regular DuPont workers and plant neighbours. As speedily as she can, Ms. Kullman appears to be running away and hiding from this devastating monument to gross, if not criminal negligence at La Porte.

    As Chieftess of this corrupt Delaware-based conglomerate, Ms. Kullman has now presided over six gruesome deaths: four at La Porte, one at Yerkes, Buffalo, and one at Belle, West Virginia. Given the cost-slashing and bogus SAFETY of DuPont Management, the hostile workplace for regular DuPonters is not safe at any speed. Ms. Kullman should stand down. Instead, she hunkers down in Fortress Wilmington, frantically trying to preserve her IMAGE and distant herself from something she regards as distasteful: death on her watch. And for shareholders and regular employees toiling and moiling on the line that is no leadership at all.

    Merely the morning commentary and opinion of one individual retail investor and long-time student of the integrity-depleted DuPont. ...funfun..

    The DuPont Management Cover-Up on Coveralls!

    Folks, obviously this illiterate stooge for DuPont Management has insurmountable difficulty in comprehending english, discerning the difference between a reference to the Company and a reference to its stock. Both have been in decline over the past 16 years. Under the crushing weight of an inept and inbred duo of "leaders", Holliday/Kullman, the stock has never regained its peak of 84 set in May 1998. And the Company itself has been shrinking continually over the years, with one mismanaged business after another being jettisoned, and tens of thousands of DuPont jobs gone and pensions disappearing.

    Nothing stirs up these patently uneducated loyalists for DuPont Management than someone thoughtfully questioning the quality and performance of DuPont executives. All these shills can do is fire off third-grade insults.

  • Ultra-Secrecy Pervades Fortress Wilmington on La Porte, Texas Plant Disaster

    Good Afternoon, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Readers, while DuPont's customarily evasive and secretive Management always makes a PR splash of "full cooperation", reality is something quite different when the media shines the spotlights on their gross, if not criminal negligence. In response to the coroner's report that the dead victims were asphyxiated by toxic chemicals, Reuters is reporting DuPont Management refuses to disclose whether the workers clad unprotected only in coveralls were ordered to repair the faulty valve or were caught by surprise. The ultra-secrecy and evasion of responsibility by DuPont's ethically crippled executives and their legion of lawyers continues!

    In the meantime tellingly, Ellen J. Kullman, DuPont's $15 million-a-year Chieftess, so far has not uttered a single public word or two on this horrible tragedy, no explanation or even a little compassion. Stony silence in Fortress Wilmington speaks not so eloquently to the degradation of regular workers in this hostile, cost-slashing conglomerate.

    Readers,

    At various news sites on the world-wide web, the surviving members of the victims' families and their attorneys are being viciously attacked and disparaged. Distraught families of regular DuPont workers do not need that abuse in a moment of profound tragedy.

    Grieving families should not be smeared by the protectors and proponents of DuPont Management planted on the internet and monitoring all conversations! Families are facing the full brunt of evasion of responsibility and the minimisation of liability by a truculent and secretive DuPont Management and their legion of lawyers spinning and downplaying this horrible tragedy. And not unlikely, as has happened before, the workers themselves, the victims may be BLAMED for their own terrible end.

  • Broken-Down La Porte Chemical Factory Has Multitude of Violations in Five Years

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Readers, how atrocious is the gross, if not criminal negligence of DuPont Management?

    Yesterday, 11-17-11, the Houston Chronicle reported,

    "The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has cited the facility 51 times since 2009 for failing to prevent unauthorized pollution leaks and not maintaining thorough records, among other problems."

    In short, DuPont's arrogant "leaders" hunkered down in Fortress Wilmington really do believe they and the Company they run so poorly are above and beyond the law!

    Folks, there cannot be any sort of intelligent discussion with this downposter76, an obvious semi-illiterate member of the lower mental class comically chocked full of personal resentment. DuPont Management and Ms. Kullman should be keenly embarrassed at the low quality of their stumbling supporters and surrogates, who can only ideate in third grade insults!

    Spin Off of Performance Chemicals Unit

    DuPont's customarily secretive and muddled Management has been vague about the details of the dumping of their chemical businesses in 2015, but may take the form of shares in a new company spun off to existing DD shareholders.

    As to how much value remains in numerous, old run-down plants fraught with safety and environmental hazards, and subjected to tonnes of litigation and investigations is anyone's guess. At the moment there are thousands of lawsuits involving the Company's cancer-causing, vilely toxic Teflon chemical, PFOA or C8. Remember how Koch Industries discovered hundreds of hidden violations and dangers in the run-down fibre plants they bought during the Reign of Error of Chad O. Holliday, Jr. the gladhander from Tennessee? And the ensuing lawsuit for over $1 billion?

    Interestingly, Barbara Acker, the laboratory technician giving the interview with FOX, had her position eliminated by DuPont Management a month ago. If she has evidence of retaliation, she should consult counsel for legal redress (and maybe under the circumstances, she already has because speaking out now indeed and infact may expose her to the vindictiveness and dirty-play of DuPont's ethically crippled Management. It would certainly not be the first time DuPont Management has punished a conscientious employee with integrity and concern for the welfare of fellow workers and plant neighbours).

  • Interview with FOX NEWS Discloses Mislabeling of Hundreds of Chemicals, Shoddy SAFETY Standards and Management Evasion

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Folks, we have written about evidence of SHAM SAFETY at DuPont's run-down, ill-maintained plants for years and the real dangers to regular DuPont workers. In the past day, an ex-lab technician who worked at La Porte has come forth on FOX NEWS and spilled the beans:

    * La Porte was an accident waiting to happen.

    * She witnesses hundreds of chemicals, many of them highly dangerous, mislabeled and mishandled. She takes forbidden pictures.

    * Shoddy SAFETY standards, or non-compliance with SAFETY standards.

    * When she communicates her concerns to corporate headquarters, she is rebuffed and an evasive and truculent Management shuts her down!

    Sound familiar? It sounds like Jack Seddon redux. Jack, a veteran DuPonter was the whistleblower at the DuPont Chambers of Horror Works in Deep Water, New Jersey who was punished and harassed by an evil DuPont Management for daring to share his concerns about a corroded phosgene tank he believed constituted a horrible potential danger to himself, his fellow workers, and people in surrounding neighbourhoods. He ultimately won his case and justice was served against DuPont at the New Jersey Supreme Court.

    At DuPont, real SAFETY apparently costs too much; hence, SHAM SAFETY will do.

  • Is Gross Negligence, or Even Criminal Negligence Involved?

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Readers, Reuters is reporting tonight, 11-17-14:

    " A prominent Texas trial lawyer said he filed a lawsuit against DuPont and #$%$ Monday on behalf of a woman whose mother was one of four people killed in an accident on Saturday at the company's La Porte, Texas chemical plant.

    "The lawyer, Brent #$%$, also filed a temporary restraining order to preserve evidence at the scene of the accident, which involved a leak of methyl mercaptan, a chemical used to give natural gas its rotten-egg smell and for making insecticides and plastics.

    " 'Texas has the highest workplace injury levels in the country, and this industry needs much greater oversight of their safety and health programs,' #$%$, who sued BP Plc over 15 deaths from an explosion at its Texas City refinery in 2005, said in a statement."

    This legal exposure does not augur well for DD shareholders, nor for this ill-maintained DuPont La Porte plant which has been repeatedly slammed with citations for environmental and hazardous violations and fines.

    Folks, looks like there must be a boatload of consternation in the executive suites in Fortress Wilmington under siege this weekend:

    *1 The Headmistress of this safety befouled organisation has yet to speak publicly about what went so terribly wrong or even offer up a word or two of compassion to the families of the five victims or their fellow regular DuPont workers and contract workers on the site.

    *2 Abusive hecklers, proponents and protectors of DuPont Management, many of them resentfully undereducated with limited intelligence, have started up vile personal attacks over the internet on commentators questioning the safety of the DuPont workplace environment and the dangers of DuPont Management's cost-slashing cheapness. Recall the worn and frayed flex hose at Belle which burst and fatally showered a 30-year veteran DuPonter with deadly phosgene? And the multitude of critical OSHA sanctions and fines which followed?

    It has been well over a full day now since this terrible out-of-control poisonous leak began, and not a single public word of compassion or explanation has come from the executive suite of DuPont CEO & "Chair" Ellen J. Kullman bunkered down in Fortress Wilmington under siege in the dwarf State of Delaware. Ms. Kulllman hauls down $15 million a year in pay, and you would think she might be able to say a word or two, carefully cobbled for her by her Company lawyers, PR operatives, and IMAGE consultants.

    Folks, what would you expect from the Management of a Company which has insidiously and secretly contaminated the drinking water supplies of 100,000 Mid-Ohio Valley residents with their extraordinarily toxic, cancer-causing Teflon chemical, C8 or PFOA, and lied about it? Now Nelson Peltz and other investors have to factor in thousands of individual lawsuits against DuPont filed in the U. S. District Court of Columbus, Ohio, and state courts, claiming cogently grave harm from the "SAFETY is our CORE VALUE" DuPont.
