Monarch 10ee out of CU Boulder on gov deals
Seems like a nice clean machine with a lot of accessories, probably going to go for a lot of money. If you get it let me know, I'm nearby.
This is one of the oldest arguments on this site. Turns out nearly everyone can use the internet and even those with a passing interest have seen it. Bidding and following through with purchase and transportation are different things. The latter is a much smaller group. My experience with Gov deals auctions have been much less than stellar. Good luck whoever bids and gets it."I'm not buying it, or selling it, but look at me I can use the internet"... c'mon
If someone is in the market for a 10ee at top dollar they can go find one and buy it anytime. This was not an overly long running auction as many on Govdeals are, and there was/is a chance someone gets a deal on it. (yes the reserve may nullify that, but not certainly)
If you were interested in bidding on it yourself would you still share it with everyone just to be a nice guy? Probably not. You can always post after the fact "did anyone see the 10ee that just SOLD on govdeals?", and likely strike up just as much of a conversation.
(I am actually bidding on this, not just complaining for the heck of it)
Damn kids should be happy to get a bowl of rice, when we were that age a full days wage only got you half a bowl of rice. One of those kids walked off the job on me last week, and I was paying $20 per hour, he did not say a word, he just walked.
I see the term "Boomers" used more and more often as a pejorative. If boomers are guilty of anything, it's raising a generation of spoiled entitled brats. That's my take on it from the view point of a boomer :-).
Touche’They kind of did in a way. My parents are boomers. They had things to deal with like Vietnam, civil rights and easy access to all kinds of drugs and heavy alcohol use as the norm. Cigarettes weren't a bad thing until they were middle aged. So I can't say they all had it easy.
However, when boomers came of age and started buying houses and property and going into business and politics they shaped a majority of laws and regulations to favor them. Their numbers made for a massive majority. They absorbed massive assets. They have previously unheard of wealth and power for their generation.
Something I find comical about boomers is it seems as though most of the really successful ones I have met and know today, including some of my good friends, is how they came into success and power largely by just not making terrible choices- They bought real estate when prices were low and their wages were high. All they had to do to make it in business was pay for a spot in the yellow pages and do the work OK. Innovation and technological obsolescence happened over decades, not overnight. Boomers weren't under video surveillance 24/7 for the first half of their lives atleast.
So I don't think boomers should stop giving younger generations shit for being lazy, but I do think they should stop and think how they played a part in creating the problem.
