Them Utah radicals are just fun as all get out.....
.
>>>George Burnett believes that big government, entitlement programs and reckless spending are "liberal programs" that cost jobs and bring higher taxes.

So, the Vernal businessman has no problem charging liberals a higher price than conservatives at his Main Street juice bar called I Love Drilling.


"They’re costing us money," he said of his left-leaning customers. "So it only seems fair that I charge them a little bit more."

Burnett doesn’t try to hide the price discrepancy. The menu board above the register clearly states that liberals will pay $5.95 for a 16-ounce smoothie or juice, while conservatives pay $4.95. (Employees pay only $3.95.). When ordering the drinks, which are named after famous oil wells, the cashier simply asks "What’s your price?"

"We use the honor code," Burnett. "We’re not going to quiz them, because it’s not a big deal."<<<

I wonder how many of them libs fess up and pay extra????? Snicker snort laughing like crazy....

Freedom to run your business how you see fit is fantastic.....

"I bet you'd get some folks who would self-describe as Conservative and pay the higher price to donate to charity."

Escept maybe while somebody they wanted to go one-up on was looking!

Burnett opened I Love Drilling on Nov. 7, the day after the 2012 presidential election, and since then, only a few customers have paid the liberal price — no surprise given that this big oil town is overwhelmingly Republican.

Many happy conservatives have posted supportive comments on I Love Drilling’s Facebook page.

"I hope you collect a million dollars in Smoothie Liberal Tax," wrote one commenter.

"If I lived in Vernal I’d support your business, good job," added another.

Liberals drink lattes, not smoothies, so it probably is a mute point. :o)

Sure umble - it was all of that. But I thought is was kind of funny or ironic or unusual.

By the way Paxy your defination doesnt fit me at all however --- your near personal attacks are riding the ragged line of 'trolling'.

If you dont like the topic - fine discuss the topic or ignore it. But throwing semi hidden slurs about a person rather than ideas isnt too cool there guy.

You have to admit, it is pretty funny. That said, has anyone EVER admitted to being a liberal and paying the higher price?

Now let's turn it around for a second.. what if it was the other way, the bar was called "Mountain Wildflowers" or something, and they had it the other way - where self-styled CONSERVATIVES were being charged more to help repair the environment (the excess going towards conservation efforts)? I bet you'd get some folks who would self-describe as Conservative and pay the higher price to donate to charity.

No, its a chance to give "Liberals" a opportunity to express their devotion to their cause(s). How many opt to spend their own money to express their loyalty to an ideology that confiscates money from others, so that the "Liberals" (liberal with other people's money) can feel good?

Maybe we should start a topic on identifying companies that support Liberal solutions and funnel a portion of their profits to Leftist organizations?

Why protest anything? Go in, fill out an application form, and ask for the employee price! LOL!!
