I see the exact same thing done with auction skid steers.  Sunbelt rentals sends em to ritchie bros and some guy with a semi buys all of them in the 10-15k range then puts em on FB/CL etc for $25-28k.  Irritating.  I see the same with GDOTs auction trucks.  They sell for $7k and end up on FB with a flatbed instead of service bed for 30Gs.

Once the competition starts between S&P500 companies tech will move improve and sell quickly.      That was my point with the photo and wish I knew how to edit that

With your time in the USMC I am surprised that you dont have VA coverage.

I think there are some income limits and you have to sign up.  better than nothing but not perfect.  I learned a lot of medicine at VA hospitals.  the brick and design are often the same from a particular era.  the one in Albany, NY, is almost the same as the one in KC, MO.

With your time in the USMC I am surprised that you dont have VA coverage.
Well, theres a long story there id rather not disclose, but me not responding would be suspect and were 30 pages in so the topics pretty well whipped i guess.

 I am eligible for VA and did use it in my 20s for a few years. They were slightly less brutal than active duty medical care, it was better than none most of the time.  I had a BCBS family plan for the decade at the plant, which was great.  Then i left in 2016 and started life on the road in my truck moving my equipment.  Maybe half finished.


Wife and kids were down south, i was mostly absent and her cousin was staying for the kids. Wife got a job immediately but could never seem to get one with family coverage option.  Lots of promises at sign on.. 90 days to be eligible.  130 days in you get tired of the runarounds, find out its life insurance not health insurance. And these users know that, they just play dumb to get a worker for 3 months.


The kids needed care so she signed them up on Tenncare. I am ideologically opposed to the taxpayer being burdened with my kids but things just never worked out, weve been hand to mouth for 5 years. The trucking jobs i had were all 1099.. No withholdings or benefits. When covid rates forced me to quit trucking she was ready for a kid break. It was maybe 6 months at another user job with the fake promised insurance and then the one shes at now that actually has it. 

full benefits does not leave much takehome pay from $13.50 a hour but we are making it. My rule is one parent home one parent at work. If we have 2 incomes we will just learn to spend all of that and then require it forever.  What if one of us gets sick?  Im not losing a paid off place.  So we are frugal like people should be.


Anyways i definitely could not take my kids medical away since we had so many bahavioral issues with the boy and wife would probably leave me if i tried.  But i also couldnt stand being a freeloading hippocrite so i "paid for" their care the only way i could.  By not burdening the system with mine.  I voluntarily did not ever use VA again.

  I know theyre different pockets on uncle sams coat but it was for me and a lesson to my kids.  When you grow up, dont take what you havent earned.  I hate socialism so much that i want no part of it. Even the free stuff they dole out in the early phases of coming to power.  Its being stolen from someone elses paycheck and is a crime.

My wife was on VA during this period.  Shes an army vet.  I got pretty lucky and was able to sweat out all but one ER incident that came out to around $3k.

I will just say that of all the government insurance programs, a veteran has earned it more than any.  I respect your philosophy.  my dad told me when he joined the military, the recruiter told him you never have to worry about health care.  He also told me that his mom paid the pediatrician (they had 11 kids, good Catholics in the 30s and 40s) 2 dollars each month.  I have never turned a pediatric patient or their family to collections.  Thanks for sharing a private part of your life Mike.

Thanks doc.  My pay back then was enough, i got out able bodied and dont feel owed in any way. It definitely hits a man right in his pride to not have the family provisions worked out.  Been a humbling decade for me.
