Foul language is your purview Mr. Root, not mine.
Clean up your own house before accusing others Mr.Root.
Also, blaming others for your misdeeds seems to be a constant affliction with you Mr. root.
Pointing fingers must be an inherited family condition.
Maybe it's got something to do with your diet.
Please leave me alone.

My present leaf is just fine thanks.
Got me this far very nicely in life, thanks.
I'm just having a little fun with Mr. Root.
I think he's in the grips of a mid life crisis.

He is the author of his own misfortune.
If I stop, he'll get frustrated and will find a way to get it started all over again.

Ex marine, a pilot like me, and an all round good guy.
Have had many a good conversation with him.
Flies out of Pontiac Mi.
He and I get our avionics work done at the same shop there.

Just a few facts on the Volt..

VOLTEC battery technology dates back to the 90ís derived from the EV1
GMís Volt concept is released at the 07 auto show.
June 08 Ė GMís BOD approves the Volt well before BR and infusion of government funds.

Also, A bit of research shows that the $7,500 tax credit was first put into law in the 2007-2008 Congress with the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008, well before there was an Obama Administration.

Volt is an astonishing car and shouldíve never been attacked by politically motivated foes.

Agree.
But like I said earlier, it ain't perfect.
But it sure beats what's in second place.

No Dolt, there has never been a car that has earned as many rewards or garnered the amount of attention the Volt has in such a short time. It is the epitome of revolutionary.

Now, now Root.
You're obviously trying to antagonize that fellow.
No wonder people get on your case.
Ease up on the superlatives.
