The Un Vax Tax Happening Throughout The World
By Bob Small
My Philly friend, one Scott Normal Rosenthal, relocated to Vermont where he sends me blasts of e-mails on a daily basis. One of these, though in an adjacent country.
The Premier of Quebec, Francois Legault, proposes that those adults who refuse to get vaccinated, must now pay a fine. He wants these “refuseniks” to pay what he considers the increased cost on the health care system caused by thse unvaccinated.
It should be noted, that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among others, has questions about this “tax”.
Among other examples, a Quebecois father is being prevented from seeing his minor son due to being unvaccinated. It should be noted that“Although nearly 90 percent of Quebec are vaccinated, they make up nearly a third of all hospital cases”.
According to Bloomburg News, these worrying sanctions are occuring throughout Europe;
Austria is planning mandatory vaccinations as of next month, with fines as high as 7,200 Euros ($8,151).
Greece is imposing a 100 Euro ($113) monthly fine on those unvaccinated and over 60. In November, for example, only 60,00 among 580,000 of this population were jabbed.
Other countries, such as Finland and Slovakia, are offering the carrot rather than the stick. Slovakia is giving out 500 Euros ($573) to those over 60 recalcitrants.
Lastly Lithuania does both, requiring Covid immunityu for any indoor venue. However, they are also offering 100 Euros ($114.50) to anyone over 75 who gets a booster before March 31st. For further examples, see These Countries Are Slapping the Unvaccinated With Fines …
Luckily, we live in these United States where neither the Federal Government would dare to dream of such a “Unvax Tax”. And if they did surely it would go to a Court to be stopped while both online and offline writers fulminated, and tv and radio hosts spoke out against this. Surely this would happen. And anyway, don’t we trust the average American to know what a dictatorship is approaching, a “Faucism” to invent a combination word, and how to do non-violent resistance of whatever source they choose. Surely, surely, surely.
