    I Guess Obama won't be giving A123 a plug anymore on how successful his lending to small businesses is going

    Until all the facts are in, assumptions can cause damage to a companies reputation. Comments based on speculations can also make people look less than intelligent. Just a thought

    It has already been determined that the GM lab failed to follow procedures after the crash test. The battery fire did not happen until 2 weeks after the vehicle was put into the storage lot. There were zero safety issues related to the battery during the crash & for 2 weeks afterwards. The technicians failed, not the battery!

    Back in the late 70s, a roommate blew up the battery in his Camaro by crossing the black and red cables while hooking up a battery charger. Battery acid sprayed all over him causing burns.

     

    Maybe we should all sell our standard battery equipped vehicles, since there is a chance it could explode if we cross the cables, and there are no safety systems in place to prevent it.

     

    Of course we all know it’s Obama’s fault.
