Be suspicious, on general principle, of anything offered to you for “free.” That certainly includes any free Covid-19 vaccines. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:
The other day, I drove by a tent set up in the parking lot of the local volunteer fire department where people could get “free” injections of whatever’s-in-those-needles. Similar kiosks are popping up at grocery stores. Free beer is promised to those who agree to be injected with whatever’s-in-those-Needles.
It’s a free for all . . . or so they hope.
It got to me to thinking about the cost of all this “free” stuff.
The government wants very much to convince the volk that there is no cost to the “free” things it provides – which it possesses in limitless quantities and benevolently disburses, kind of like Santa Claus.
But it’s not benevolent. The government’s elves are us – and unlike Santa’s elves, government’s elves are not free to leave the workshop.
Uncle must take before he can give.
The elves assume the costs of “free” – while Uncle Santa gets the credit for the benevolence.
Eventually, the elves decide it is no longer worth being elves – and join the ranks of those wanting Christmas morning every day, for “free.” They soon discover it’s a lump of coal for everyone – every day.
