Resumes & Job Objectives

I've been reviewing a lot of resume's lately.  Please tell me, what is the purpose stating your "Job Objective"?  Isn't it implied that your objective is to find a new job, specifically my job? I assume you're dynamic and technical and your vast expertise will help my company conquer the world.

Also, what is the purpose of summarizing your experience on the first page and then giving me eight more pages of the stuff you just summarized?  Seriously, doesn't resume mean summary?

I've been at this for 20+ years, my resume is 2 pages.  I don't need to know you did export/import at every one of your jobs for the last 12 years.
