A small business owner in Vernal, Utah, is raising eyebrows with a controversial policy surrounding how much he charges liberals and conservatives for smoothies. George Burnett, owner of “I Love Drilling Juice & Smoothie Bar,” has implemented a price structure in which liberals pay more for their drinks than their conservative counterparts.

Burnett, an advocate who is known locally for his support of the energy market (just look at the name of his smoothie bar), has made no bones about his plans to charge liberals $1 more for their fruit-filled drinks.

I'd charge more.

But I applaud his brass.

Smoothies for liberals should get a shot of banana cream sauce.

Funny.

But my question is, does he ask people when they walk through the door what their side is? I mean, if people know, why not just say I'm not a leftist and pay $1 less?

Because the lefty scum are too stupid to do that. They don't know how to shut up, they will proclaim their side and scream injustice.

Guy has a big sign in his shop that says, "LIBERALS PAY MORE HERE!" Vernal, the town the smoothie shop is in, is in the Uintah Basin. Lot's of energy production in the area. I imagine if someone admits to being a Lib they'll get charged the extra buck, but it's mostly marketing. Clever marketing.
