Wimminz – celebrating skank ho's everywhere

Negligence and Incompetence


Today I am going to talk about Negligence and Incompetence, which are in many ways two sides of the same coin.

Back when I was a lad, when all this around ‘ere was just fields, competence was a prized thing.

In fact, extreme competence was so prized that you could be a complete nightmare, the proverbial mad scientist, and indeed our history is replete with such people who were extremely competent at one thing, and complete nightmares in every other aspect of their lives, and so effective were these people that you rarely find a technological milestone invented or created or developed by a fairly normal easy going  chilled out guy.

It was the same in business, even relatively small trades where each shop employed only 20 or so people, the “old man” was a pain in the ass, but the shop put out fabulous quality work, and the staff are replete with tales about what a bastard the “old man” was, but said tales were always told with a tone of respect, and humour for the poor unfortunate who was the subject of the old man’s attentions…. “I paid for ALL of that hacksaw blade boy, not just the bit you are using!

I don’t know when the change started, but I do know that by around 1985 competence and care had sunk below the line where they were considered mandatory pre-requisites for many jobs, with obvious remaining exceptions such as airline pilots.

Now in 2011 being competent and careful in your work has sunk in status to such a level that they are actually negative traits as far as your employment prospects are concerned…. and indeed increasingly as far as your legal and social status is concerned.

They are negative traits because the proportion of incompetent and negligent employees in every organisation has risen to such a level that the merely borderline competent make them all look bad, and so the merely borderline competent are reviled, plotted against, and eventually forced out.

My own personal first experience of this was in 1983, an engineering shop where older employees had words with me about slowing down my output, which being on piece work I objected to, which led to increasing tension, and by the end of the week I had had enough, and quit.

A year later that company had ceased trading.

I soon became self employed, and discovered the truth behind the saying “You are only as good as your last job.” and one bad job could finish you and finish your business…

That was when those lessons hammered in to me by older men, including my own father, really started to come to life and make 3D Technicolor sense, fucking this job up doesn’t just mean not getting paid, it meant getting a bad name and not being able to work at my trade or earn money again.

The result of that was the odd nightmare job where everything you touched turned to shit, and you eat the time and money it took to make it right, and only billed the customer the amount you said up front.

And that taught you to check every job thoroughly, and not trust anyone else’s competence or care as a factor in your pricing the job up, just because Joe Bloggs said that these widgets were all replaced with factory new last year, and only that widget over there was dying now, doesn’t mean shit if Joe Bloggs is a butcher who fucked up all those new widgets installing them, and damaged the widget holders…

Then you discovered just how smart those older men were, because it doesn’t matter what your job and your speciality is, you always rub up against and deal with other trades as jobs are progressed and handed over, a first fix electrician will work alongside plumbers and plasterers, and “core competence” in your trade meant being able to communicate with them, about their trade, in appropriate trade language.

This was why you can train to be a doctor/surgeon in four years, but it took you about ten years before you dared to call yourself an Engineer, you didn’t have to be a Turner, but by God you’d better be able to centre some work in a 4 jaw chuck and turn a couple of thou accurately off it and achieve a nice finish, now matter if it took you ten times as long as the Turner, because if you could not do that you could neither talk to the Turner nor understand him, and an Engineer all by his lonesome is a remarkably unproductive individual in a commercial sense….

Yes, I can build an entire motor car from raw materials, but it will take me several years, which means it will cost more than a top end Rolls Royce, which leads neatly into exactly what the Industrial Revolution was all about, mass production vs bespoke work.

Incidentally, all these terms, such as Core Competence have been stolen and bastardised, the wikipedia entry for it says it must fulfill three critera, namely;

  1. It is not easy for competitors to imitate.
  2. It can be leveraged widely to many products and markets.
  3. It must contribute to the end consumer’s experienced benefits.

Which is complete fucking bollocks, Core Competence means an absolutely essential MINIMUM level of ability in various fields, but then again any cunt can edit wikipedia and spout any old shit as being factual… there is no Core Competence in Encyclopaedias required to be a wiki editor…

Back when I was doing an apprenticeship an Engineer was described as a man who could determine a solution to a problem, then make a tool that would make the product that formed that solution.

Nowadays any cunt who can plug an AGP card into a motherboard walks around calling themselves a fucking Personal Computer Engineer, back in my day Wozniak could lay claim to that, as could Moore and many others, not some cunt performing the mechanical equivalent to shoving one lego brick against another lego brick.

In my recent introduction to the secret family courts I gained first hand knowledge that the systemic and endemic incompetence and negligence that I had up until then assumed had spread into the local council office etc etc, had also spread into the legal system.

I talked to many lawyers, all told me the same tale, they grew up, learned about the Law, as I did, found it fascinating, as I did, and went off to study it, as I did not, and then became qualified and became introduced to the real world of law in every day practice, and became thoroughly and utterly disillusioned.

I have talked to many policemen, same story, all the good ones quit in disgust, except for a very few who stuck with it, leaving the majority to their disillusions and incompetence and negligence… what the fuck, it’s just a job eh.

And yet these same cunts are the first to complain if the guy fixing the brakes on the wife’s school run 4×4 takes a what the fuck attitude, and the vehicle plows into a fucking lamp post.

In 1980 my bank manager summoned me to his office, he rang my boss and told him to send me over, because I had written a cheque that would put me six pence over drawn, four days before my monthly salary was about to be paid in. At the time I thought he was a stuffed shirt, but in hindsight who is more competent, him, or his modern replacement who up until recently was quite happy to give customers self certified 125% interest only mortgages?

My dad was in the REME (British army engineering corps) in Singapore in 1945 and cut his foot on coral while swimming, a year later back in Blighty a country doctor diagnosed the lump in his groin as the bits of coral being carried up there by his blood stream, dad was about to take his trousers off to show the doctor the lump, the doctor noted dad’s suntan and told him to take his shoes and socks off, and saw the cut…. todays doctors can’t even diagnose fucking meningitis, and send kids home with some calpol to die.

What in many ways frightens the living fucking shit out of those ever dwindling numbers of those of us who are competent, is the simple fact that the one class of person least able to either gauge their own level of incompetence and negligence, and also least able to visualise the inevitable consequrnces of their own incompetence and negligence, are the terminally fucking clueless incompetents and negligents themselves.

When you see and hear a judge declare that some skank ho making a False Rape Accusation is the clearest case of a rape victim they have seen in 20 years as a judge, you are hit by a chilling insight, that EVERY SINGLE CASE EVER HEARD by that judge in their illustrious 20 year career needs to be re-heard as a crash priority… quite apart from the poor innocent bastard he just sent down for six years.

A certain writer wrote stories about how an alien race put all their lawyers and telephone hygeinists into one spaceship and sent it off one way (to crash into the then unpopulated Earth) and everyone else got into another spaceship and went to a different planet.

It’s funny as far as it goes, but the reality on the ground is the few places left on the planet where you can find core competence is in small teams of men working jobs that kill you quickly if you fuck up or fuck around, deep sea fishermen, hard rock miners, foundry workers…

As mentioned previously, disillusionment with the job, or with the effectiveness of the job, is an excellent indicator of incompetence and negligence….. sadly excess hubris and delight in their role is often also an indicator of incompetence and negligence…

I could not stand even ten seconds of The Office (UK David Brent version) it made me cringe with revulsion and want to shoot everyone even remotely involved with it, including props and wardrobe, but we live in a world where such things are celebrated, as are shows about skank ho teen moms, etcetera.

Sadly, I cannot think of any way of remedying the situation, short of making incompetence and negligence the most expensive of all possible options again, as they once were, and I cannot see any way of making that happen, short of total financial and economic collapse, which, luckily enough, looks to be on the horizon as we speak.

  1. Very interesting indeed. The statements about Core Competency were most illuminating: worthy to be written down in my artists’ drawing book to be seen every time I open it.

  2. To all those with morals and to all those who love all children, that this David J. Glass Esq. PhD would giggle & laugh at me while waiting to see the judge. Shortly after this attached letter dated 2-12-2012 was received by the community of Malibu, CA this David J. Glass Esq. PhD conspired to injure a 3rd party (myself) , suborned perjury and falsified evidence just before he closed down his practice and went to FMBK Law.The CA State Bar has just received a 2nd complaint regarding this matter.

    2-12-12 Mr. Graham J Miller

    REGARDING CHILD ABUSE by DESIGN

    To The Principals of Malibu Elementary Schools and To Whom it may concern within the LAUSD and SMMUSD administrations, Directors or other persons.
    Dear Sir Madam or MS,

    I am writing to you firstly as a parent. I have a child in a Malibu public school. I am also writing as a Citizen, and therefore concerned in a more global manner with issues that I personally find disturbing and relevant. I believe a possible failure to perform to ethical codes of several professions, let alone what any normal person may find to be reasonable is about to, and could in the future lead to embarrassment, public consternation and at best a complete lack of faith ,trust and confidence in the above agencies.

    I have recently been informed by my daughter Lily-Jane Faith Miller that her mother has taken her out of Callahan elementary (Northridge); and she is now at some school in Malibu district. (Grade 2)

    My reasons for my concern follow.

    Within the Malibu school district there is a teacher, (C Cullen) who has accused her ex-husband of two counts of sexual abuse of their son, and 5 other counts of abuse of their son (11). This alleged abuse according to Ms. Cullen and her Attorney took place over the past 5 years.

    I would like a notation in my daughter’s file that she is never to be placed in class with the above person as her “(my daughters)” teacher. I apologize in in that I amenable to provide more details on my daughter’s whereabouts (school) but her Mom has not provided that info. I’m sure Dr Jacob the principal at Callahan would be able to assist.

    In MS Cullen’s divorce and custody case she utilized the services of a Mr. D Glass Esq.(Attorney) Mr Glass is also a PhD in Psychology .Mr. Glass was also utilized by the mother of my daughter, Lily -Jane in my own divorce and custody matter. Mr. Glass a Psychologist/ Attorney and mandated reporter saw fit to bring allegations of sexual abuse of a child and 4 allegations of other forms of abuse of MS Cullen’s son Sammy before family court. These all were investigated by the Police DCFS, and the District Attorney. They were found to be without either Medical or Credentialed 3rd party verification and closed therefore as unsubstantiated. These allegations were brought by MS Cullen via the services of Mr. Glass and occurred regularly before the summer school break on a yearly basis. MS Cullen had also recently remarried a Mr Brian Winsick another Teacher and coach in the Conejo Valley. Their marriage took place just prior to the allegations beginning.

    I will now outline my concerns and reasons for the request of the notation in my daughters file.

    It is my belief that the relationship between this teacher Ms. Cullen and her attorney and my own ex-wife and the same attorney is cause for reasonable concern. That to avoid any unfortunate incident where god forbid I was to be accused by my daughter’s mother of something similar as MS Cullen accused her ex-husband of it is imperative no establish able link is in place as could lead to suspicion of collusion. The worst case scenario that Ms. Cullen at some time becomes my daughters teacher and subsequently claims are made that perhaps my daughter had inferred to MS Cullen that I had abused her ( Lily-Jane) and MS Cullen then could relate this to my daughters mother through their mutual attorney, or contact at school is beyond horrific. I feel the separation of my daughter and this teacher protects LAUSD/SMMUSD and my daughter and me.

    In a more global sense I am concerned that a teacher married to another teacher and coach and an attorney who is also licensed as a psychologist made no attempt to make aware the LAUSD or the SMUSD of their concerns. (Two allegations of Sexual abuse and five other allegations of abuse.) Surely some ethical codes of their respective professions would demand other relevant or parties who could be impacted be advised.

    When a teacher finds the resources to pay $500 an hour to a Beverly Hills Attorney for 5 years surely there is a need for verification that such allegations will bring in terms of the expenses the County and State will bear during the protracted conflict. Especially if the accused has been made indigent by the continued claims and has suffered stress or work issues stemming from such accusations and is no longer paying taxes.

    As a parent I certainly would be outraged if I knew my child’s teacher was aware of a legitimate abuse situation and if, as in this case it included Sexual Abuse allegations and that teacher did nothing to bring attention to it as could protect other children I would expect answers. Specifically why and how a person(s) (2 Teachers, (Coach), An Attorney/Psychologist) would go ahead and consciously disregard accusations of such a serious nature, and then they having brought these allegations before family court and the district attorney go ahead and let other parents arrange activities with the person they were accusing of abuse in a manner as would expose other children to the accused.

    What is more disturbing and I expect the press will find disturbing is that repeated allegations of this nature are often utilized in family conflicts and that this is acceptable is in fact a failure of morality within our society. I believe this failure may have had a profound societal impact.

    That the failure of an application of evidentiary standards as are normally applied in criminal matters may have allowed credentialed persons possibly with questionable motive to use family court in a manipulative and deceitful way to achieve their own ends appears to me to be worthy of consideration.

    This epidemic of claims of abuse of children caught in such situations, (family breakups) versus children, who suffer actual abuse , desensitizes the general public and governmental agencies and allows real and dangerous criminals to hide and operate with virtual impunity in our society. It is beyond Peter and the Wolf it is an ongoing crime against humanity. To falsely perpetrate something that I believe leads to what we are now facing in the LAUSD and SMMUSD and may have exacerbated, perpetuated and indeed by lack of action condoned events and actions that possibly has led to emotional; mental and even physical harm to any child is heinous.

    I believe because of the actions as I have described many prior red flags have been ignored in many abuse situations and much suffering and harm and expense could have been avoided if a less commonplace attitude of children was the norm.

    Indeed in the immediate situation with (C Cullen, B Winsick )either the allegations were scurrilous and a product of vitriol, and an attorney(PhD Psych) with who knows what motivation (7 Claims) and that these claims were worthy of public expense .Or these persons were aware the claims they were bringing were false and therefore not worthy of reporting to LAUISD/SMUSD or other parents.? The alternative is an admission of negligent lack of reasonable due diligence and surely a great lack of concern for the school both pupils and other teachers and parents has been flagrantly displayed in total disregard for the safety and welfare of minors. Whether this is or should be a concern for the bond holders of these persons I do not know. Mr. Glass, Glass family Law and former associate of (Kolodny & Anteau) One of the most respected family law firms in the United States (Mel Gibson Getty, etc.) has been investigated by the CA Bar already in this matter and while the complaint was not upheld a letter suggesting the possibility of civil redress was issued by them.

    The APA also found he did no wrong apparently within their own ethics code.

    The fact remains an Attorney/Psychologist and a Teacher and a Teacher/Coach surely have some duty to the community. The positions of trust and respect they are afforded should allow the general public a reasonableness within their expectation of propriety and protection of the innocent by such credentialed persons.

    Perhaps the LAUSD/SMUSD could incorporate or suggest to the CA Bar a cooperative relationship of a professional nature that would allow this protection to be afforded our children as well as draft a code for the LAUSD/SMUSD’s own employees in such situations.

    Certainly recent events could lead one to surmise that a better clarified way of maintaining the safety and welfare of our children, from both bonifide and false claims of abuse would be helpful. The harm that both real and imagined events can bring to families, as well as collateral persons and an institution such as children’s learning environment should be minimalized at all times.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Graham J Miller.

  3. 3-13-13 Child abuse by design

    Dear Ken ,

    It’s been more than a year since the letter of 2/12/12 and the apparent subsequent closing shortly thereafter of Glass Family Law. I understand he is now not promoting himself as uniquely blended in Psychology and Law but is at another firm doing probate work. Interestingly enough his resume at FMBK Law has claims of credentials I understand you believe are false based upon you direct written response from organizations Mr. Glass claims to be a member or associated with. Who does that reflect upon him or the diligence and propriety of the firm which now employs him?
    It occurred to me that the complete contrast in our cases is almost deafening in the way it shouts hypocrisy, maleficent practices, and flat out perjuries within statements written under penalty of perjury and oral statements within hearings and written statements within submitted briefs screams of the manipulation of parents. This IMHO by attorney’s, the bench and minor’s councils within the family court system in CA at least. Given I was asked to waive my Fifth Amendment Rights in family court? And did so .The issuance of restraining orders on both of us within 3 weeks of my letter of the 12 of February under quote Justice Convey in your instance (“by the slimmest of margins”)one has to wonder at the coincidence…Right? Of course I was judged as having stalked by proxy because I hired a PI to prove my daughter was being housed with a felon (cultivating under a Federal Indictment),,, and the mother knew it.
    Indeed in your instance you were falsely accused of molestation by the mother of your son seven ( 7) times and then of stalking (8th)when the child was too old to falsely accuse the father of abuse .I note your minors council never interviewed your child even though Sammy was ten (10) . In your case no abuse took place yet you were put on monitored visitation and visitation reduced to police station pick-ups permanently. It would seem logical Ken that at some time you become a safe parent. When is that after your four (4th) parenting class? Or after the third 3rd interview with the District Attorney’s Office. How about after the 8th sheriff or 13th DCFS investigations. What grade gives you a pass? Or is it like our friend who ponied up a Million dollars.
    In my case I alleged that the mother was negligent or deliberately sub parenting in a manner as was provocative .Lj was taken to UCLA med center at three & half (3 ½) .and on morphine and intravenous feeding for 6 weeks after the neighbors call the police because they could hear her screaming. I had previously stated the mother did not have the skills or empathy and may have been suffering some mental distress.
    Then two (2) years later numerous blood noses (daddy don’t put sunscreen on …its very sore) and Minors counsel accused me of overreacting etc. Yet my daughter now is showing a scar across her nose as her face has grown. Also when the symptoms that caused the first hospitalization reoccurred I took Lj to the Doctor without custodial privileges and was again accused of being alarmist yet the child’s diet was immediately changed by the mother and things improved.
    Not forgetting being accused of 10K in support arrears that the judge threw out as falsified spreadsheet CSSD said I never owed anything. As well as the LCSW saying the Mothers accusation I yelled at our daughter and threw a phone at her was a work of fiction. Perhaps that is why we have a letter from the Bar suggesting we pursue “civil action”.
    Given all this I am the one who is separated and monitored.
    My point is you are not a molester as the DA stated yet you are punished and to the opposite I can prove the mother has been ,may still be or is a least using sub care of my child in a provocative manner where my child may be suffering yet I am punished,. Quote (LCFS,,‘ The Mother is not currently negligent”)
    Really?
    Finally we have our friend who only after paying a million dollars was taken of monitoring, all accusations and interference stopped and can see his children when he wants.
    Here is the situation Given the violence in society killings in families, how much damage has been done to children and women, mothers Fathers parents and extended family by the propagation of this kind of duplicitous behavior within what seems to be a culture of deceit built around self-aggrandizing and financial self-serving that in fact amounts to fiscal abuse of children. What training skills and so on are lost in funneling the parent’s income to third party leeches using false or manipulated circumstances to serve their own interests?
    In my case I spent more than $ 47,072 seeing my daughter for twelve ( 12) hours each month for the last year.
    I kept my second residence in California, (rent) paid child support, Airfare from NY once a month air fare for a weekend from oversees and monitor costs including the monitors meals , go-cart rides, Taxis/transportation , lunches, entertainment, getting around, clothes, toys, books & games and adventures that I as her father are able to spend upon the daughter that I have raised!
    What type of enhanced opportunities could a different approach have made?
    If fathers are the enemy what will mothers become once a more robotic agenda is achieved .They will be phased out as well. Women should consider the short amount of time science is giving them to make the correct adjustments to this situation and police their own ranks from peers lawyers and malevolent individuals who care little for children, and will eventually throw mothers to the wayside in preference of the state. I mean do little girls really need to be born with a womb anymore?
    The societal cost of the emotional and mental anguish to children and subsequent family killings from person caught up in this situations is surely not worth the salaries of a the firms and government agencies who benefit from this culture…>All mothers, children and Fathers are at risk and more so daily as those uneducated to the manner they will be manipulated and have their conflict orchestrated to the fiscal advantage of others.
    My being asked to waive my 5th in family court because a stated somebody was a dead man walking, professionally speaking .It would seem I know what I’m doing as David J. Glass Ph.D. is now hobbled from abusing any more families and a judge who asks me if I wished merry Christmas to a Jewish Lawyer as a hateful gesture seems to be setting me up for something, especially since you had received notices mailed to your residence disclosing that David Glass would be on vacation during the “Christmas holidays”.
    Yet you Ken are a longtime Jewish friend and my father spent weeks in a cattle car on his way to Stalag IVIII in Poland.

    Was it not the Nazis who first separated children from parents?

    And then when I request the transcript from that hearing, I pay for it I and then get not the original but a copy and my money order is handed back to me and no one will say who was given the original?
    Lj says to me at age of 6 when I tell her mom loves her and will always be in her life
    She state’s to me …“She’s going to live a lot; she’s never going to die?”
    What is this child going to hold her mother responsible for and by what means will she do so?
    The enabling of conflict by those who seek to gain financially is simply evil and no different from an arms dealer who supplies both sides .The killing of life be it on an emotional ,intellectual, financial, mental, spiritual and /a or physical level is a death and no different from actually using a mechanical device. Too knowingly do so to children whose spirit is pure is inherently foul.
    To surmise IMHO the individuals and associated firms in our cases are only the tip of the iceberg.
    Michael J Kretzmer. David J.Glass Ph.d, Lori A. Darakjian, Elise Greenberg of Carlson & Greenberg, Psychologist Angus Strachan Ph.d of Lund & Strachan ,FMBK Law , Kolodny & Anteau represent a blight upon what was once a noble profession .
    Please get back to me with your thoughts, I am thinking about copying this letter and the letter of 2-12-2012 to the California Attorney General.

    Thanks
    Graham.
    Ps I’ll be in LA for visitation. It snowed in NY this week.
