Good news! 135 less cars on the road.
Bad news. Less passengers on SMART which the tax payers will make up.

Yes Homey, you are right. I can't decide if I'm gonna get the three wheeled Autodesk model or the contemporary four wheeled version.

Which one were you looking at?

Solidworks is better. Autocad is too expensive.
They need to tighten up autocad lite-if still
available, and lower the price. Bad management all the way around. Hire seasoned contractors(union
and non-union)!!!! It's bloated and your company assumes everyone has an illegal copy. If i'm going to pay thousands of dollar for your bloatware, you
should provide "kiss your arse" support.

FYI, Autodesk is one of those places that puts "bi-lingual strongly preferred" when hiring. When I see they are hiring for customer support, I usually consider applying, until I get to the bottom and it says that quote. Then I move on, figuring if you no habla, you're out of luck.

Yes, but why use AutoCad when Engineers can spend half as much on TurboCad?

Please, it took 8 years to get us this screwed up, give Obama at least a year or two to fix it. You can be a part of the problem or solution, your choice.

....yeah, you're right....and Clinton had nothing to do with initiating bank de-regulation before he left office----simple-minded people like to point fingers at the easiest target...and Bush is a Very easy target.

Actually, at this point Bush is the only target due to the fact that he had eight years to fix Clinton's F Ups but didn't, so now all the blame does fall on BUSH, and he ven knows it. He was and is a total failure.

For you, the choice: Lead follow or get out of the way.

Ha Ha Ha Ha...should have tried practicing what you preached. For the past 8 years the main stream media and the "Lefties" have been hammering Bush at every turn. Well, now it is our turn. We are going to give you the same assistance you gave us. Now you will know what it feels like. Our country deserves to burn in ....! I got my Marshmellows. Gonna hang out on the corner with the "Illegal Alien" crowd. Where are my free benefits? Let's let Joe Democrat the Taxpayer pay for it all. You fools are the problem not the solution.

Nowhere did I say I didn't support Bush, supported Clinton, or was one of the "Lefties". I didn't agree with many policies of Clinton's and was never impressed with his lack of integrity. I admired some things about Bush, but overall I think many of his policies failed to keep the best interests of the majority of Americans at heart. I think the Bush administration acted without the concern for the Constitution that a true American leader should, and I think Bush's foreign policy hurt the US more than protected it. And there is no question that the Bush administration was at the helm when the financial crises hit. Are the dems blameless? Heck no, they are not, but what good does it do to point fingers and blame right now? The current president claims he wants to build bridges and reach compromise to make the changes that need to be made. Why not let him try before giving up?
I think too many problems are caused by partisans like many people on this board that cast stones and complain without truly thinking for themselves. This is on both sides of the aisle. "Lefties" or "Republitards" is pretty much irrelevant, think for yourself, judge each policy or idea on it's own merit and think how to improve whatever situation and do what you can to effect that change. It is not the critic that counts.

Defend the Constitution? Wow...are you in for a surprise with Obama. We won't recognize our Constitution when he is done with it. Nope...sorry...not going to support Socialism. Again, hope we go down in burning flames. I relish the fact it will be the Dems that crashed the plane.

LAMO, or what ever. Crash the plane? It's crashed!

Credit Card companies can do what ever they want. Guy's who got their
series 66 licensee walk all over their investors.
Big companies can move off shore. China owns
us. It can only get better.

I'm not going to argue with you, but your racism is pallatable.

Our constitution has been
"lawyered" away slowly for years. Cops
can stop you for no reason. You only have the right to an overworked lawyer in criminal cases.
We have very few real rights anymore. The internet got people talking, but the courts will
probably take that away.
When your ironing your sheet tonight, think
about this: The lovely state, that coddles you
butt, passes on average 12,000 new laws every year-
that doesn't include new regulations and bylaws.

Arguing with LMAO is like talking to an alcoholic, no, it is talking to an alcoholic. It wastes your time and is causes unnecessary bits to clutter the network.

Thanks for keeping it zipped, you couldn't muster a worthy reply anyway.
