Post 3715.
Yet another example of disgusting and totally unacceptable conduct.
Keep this in mind the next time he lectures others.

Apparently something I said was deemed to be "confrontational".
Apparently this compelled him to respond with really vile and insulting posts.
He insists my remarks somehow "caused" him to lose control and act in an out of control and irresponsible manner.
Gotta be something off kilter with a guy who blames others for "causing" him to lose control and act in such a disgusting manner.

Number 3718.
Another silly post.
He's compelled to lose control by others.
Others "make" him do so.
Or so he wants us to believe.

Some folks just can't maintain control when confronted with honest dialog.
They lose it, and then make a big noise about others "making" them do it.

I like to think of people like that as helpless.
Emotionally that is.
We'll just have to keep in mind that they really have no control over their conduct.

Getting back on topic: Hey Root what is your opinion of Ryan's? Looks like upscale Shreveport cuisine. Do they serve Guinness? Might be worth the price if you can get their on electric only.

Careful my friend.
He's pretty touchy and could take your query as "confrontational", and then go out of control with a series of crazy or vulgar posts.
Happens fairly often.

The Welfare Mobile (aka Dolt) asked:

"And why hasn't any of the great automobile manufacturers of the world implemented the Volt's drive train in one of their cars?"

Here's a list of cars that are series plug ins that were built after the Volt. The Volt was the first extended range, series hybrid plug in to go into production in the world. These are cars using the same type of technology as the Volt. In other words, they are following suite.

Ford C-Max Plug In
Toyota Prius Plug In
Fisker Karma plug in

Jaguar to produce a series hybrid based on the Chevy Volt

2013 BMW series hybrid

Mercedes Benz F800 series hybrid plug in
http://www.rsportscars.com/mercedes-benz/merc...

Here are about 4 more plug in series hybrids. Including a Volvo and a Honda

All these cars are based on the Volt style plug in series hybrid. Volt was the first extended range vehicle in the world to enter production.

Good enough?

More lies from the number # 1 Volt shill. The Fords and Toyotas are traditional Hybrids with plug in recharging systems, and programmed to depend more on battery power until the juice starts running low. So cut your BS, at least be honest, no other manufacturer uses a Volt type of system; I'm not surprised.

He blames others for "making him do it"--that's

You know it is amazing that the Rootless one from Looserweezana makes statements devoid of fact that is documented by the auto maker or any other source. GM gives electric range at under 40 miles IF you drive at the optimum speed and do not use the heater or air conditioner, they also admit that the volt has not met one sales goal in it's span on the market. Green Car Magazine (a pro electric car publication) also confirms the electric range stated by GM. The volt has no place as a practical family vehicle at the current time. These, self professed, American Conservatives all talk about how the volt is the conservative answer to a problem. The fact is that Obama forced Government Motors to rush the production of the volt before the battery technology was there and still is not. It was all a part of the Obama plan to destroy the coal industry as well as other current sources of energy in favor of "Green Living" type fuels.

How has that plan worked out so far. Solendra, this other electric car that took billions from the government and never produced the first car and the volt, the 35 mile electric wonder that the American public has rejected at the dealerships. Oh well, chevy can rejoice that they have the option of the Cruz which is the rational twin of the volt.
