Utah business owner charges liberal customers

First owner George Burnett charged liberals a dollar more than conservatives at his Vernal, Utah smoothie shop.Now, another Utah business owner--evidently inspired by that political stand--has fired two employees for supporting President Obama. And it´s all completely legal. Burnett, the owner of I Love Drilling Juice & Smoothie Bar, started charging liberals a $1 more than conservatives for his smoothies. ´They’re costing us money,´ he told The Salt Lake Tribune about his left-leaning customers. ´So it only seems fair that I charge them a little bit more.´ His menu board above the register clearly states that liberals

I do not shop at businesses whose owners or CEOs gave money to Great Leader .............
I don´t want to financially enrich them with my money.

........... I and a colleague were once thrown out of a neighborhood restaurant for being Republicans. [talking about politics amongst ourselves] ..............´I don´t serve Republicans!´

The city said it was perfectly legal.

My husband was manager of a business in CA right after his family business closed. His boss caught him listening to Rush Limbaugh on the radio in the office one day, and things were never the same. My husband was eventually fired, but he won unemployment benefits. He didn´t use them long, because he got a much better job that paid about $30k/yr. more right after that. This was during the prosperous middle of the last decade. Good times.

I sort of agree with #8. First and foremost, a business is there to make money. It doesn´t matter if it is a lemonade stand or Lockheed, the goal is the same. To alienate potential customers seems like a bad idea.
That having been said, its his business and he can run it any way he wants. If it turns out he runs it unwisely, the loss will be borne by him. We call that freedom. Too bad they dont understand that in DC.

I never spend my money with a company that is liberal - period. Back in the day in Corporate America, when I was in a position to hire professionals, I would do my best not to hire liberals under any circumstances. Why put the wolf at your back door? We know they have the integrity of bilge rats, so why have them infesting your business?

I used to roughneck on oil rigs in the Vernal area during the oil boom going on at the time. They pretty much play by their own rules in the small towns around there. Some of the young, bored, rowdy locals were fond of roughing up hippies that made the mistake of stopping by on their way through Vernal. They sometimes left with a lot less hair than they arrived with.

"I Love Drilling Juice & Smoothie Bar"

Great name !

I had breakfast one Sunday in October in Vernal, talked to two gentlemen who worked for oilfield service companies.

That area is experiencing a natural gas boom, they are bringing in wells, proving them, then capping for future use as there is not enough pipeline capacity at present to utilize the output.

Unfortunately, with the boom comes the yuppie-liberal-tree hugger types.

This sounds just great to me but then I suffered in a pro-0bama, pro-gay workplace until I lost my job. The company had been quite conservative but when the 3rd generation got their hands on it, it was open season on any worker who wasn´t 110% on board the liberal bus. I don´t share other posters delicate sensibilities - this is a war and it´s about time conservatives started fighting back.

Vernal has lots of dinosaur relics and is near the Green River - a great place to go white water canyon rafting.

I don´t think that it is dumb at all. Have you ever tried explaining simple business economics to a lib? Their eyes glaze over & they go into "but it´s not faaairr!" mode. This might get their attention because it is cause and effect at the most basic level - the one they might understand.

While I don´t generally support being unfair to a customer, or arbitrary firing of workers, both of these businessmen make sense. The name "I Love Drilling and Juice Bar" begs the question of why any liberal/Obama supporter go in there to begin with. As for the second owner firing Obama supporters - they were lousy workers anyway (shocking!), and was probably glad for an excuse to let them go.

We need to climb down off our high horses and start going on the offensive. You can´t win using defense only. You have to push back.

We have been behaving like the British during the war for independence. We stand in formation in the middle of fields getting picked off by the Americans in the trees. All the while expressing outrage because they aren´t following the rules. Yet who won that war?

I think conservatives need to target raising revenue from liberals. I support a 50% of revenue tax on movies, video games, and music. It is only fair. Why should alcohol and tobacco bear all the burden? Why should Hollywood types live in $25 million dollar mansions with so many on Obama phones? It is not fair.

I had a co-worker in another dept next to ours who had a obama/biden bumper sticker on his car. He lost his job the week after the election!

I suggest before he drives to any job interviews he scraps off that bumper sticker.

Doing my taxes I saw that I made about $5,200 less then last year with taxes up over $2,600
Add in the cost of everything going up such as gas where we are paying more then double where I paid at least $1,200 more in gas.

I just cannot fathom how stupid anyone can be to vote in any democrat.

University of East London bans segregated

Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist.

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
