Skip to comments.Utah smoothie bar owner charges liberals $1 extra per drink
Posted on 01/16/2013 1:44:34 AM PST by Libloather
We have a fiscal problem in this country. Weve got to deal with it or we dont have a country, so to kind of help make that point, just a little bit, I charge liberals just a little bit more. Really what Im focused on is the fiscal differences between big government/small government and liberal ways, as far as entitlements and spending, said Burnett, in a KSL.com report.
Burnett says the extra money will go to support the conservative Washngton-based think tank, The Heritage Foundation.
Burnett, also a pro-oil and gas activist, plainly lists prices for his drinks, with colorful names like Drakes Well, Oil Creek and Old American. Conservatives: $4.95, Liberals: $5.95, and Crew Team Members: $3.95.

How is he going to know they're liberals? If I was a liberal I'd just claim to be "conservative" so I'd save an extra buck. It's like that Chicago bar that was offering 1 free drink to anyone who voted for Obama in 2012. If it wasn't so far away, I'd show up with 40 of my conservative buddies and we'd all claim to be "Obama voters" to stiff those guys.
Liberals don’t care ....in many cases they didn’t earn the money but got it though one of the multiple “safety nets” ‘government programs to keep them dependent...
They proudly pay the extra dollar ....it’s like a badge of honor to them....They suck off the system....And are proud of it...
As for knowing who is a liberal and who isn’t it would be obvious, they’d be the one’s bitching & protesting and I wouldn’t be caught dead in any bar offering free drinks if you voted for Obama.
During my last few years before retirement, I charged liberals double, then triple, then quadruple what I charged decent people. They paid happily, but I finally decided it was not enough. I’m not willing to work for a liberal at any price - and that now includes work that generates tax revenue for the communist in our White House. Who is John Galt?
I like that. A “liberal tax.” Tough to do, though, since many lefties are liars.
I worked with a lib woman who bragged how they cheated on their taxes.
I can’t imagine getting a free drink from an Obama lover. Sell your soul for 5 bucks? lol. JK. I know your intent but yieks, was it worth it?
That was my high school friend's liberal dad. He used to register his car in NH to avoid paying MA excise taxes. He was a corporate VP, so he could afford to "pay his fair share."
He also bragged that he would buy a big screen TV before the Super Bowl, and return it the following week.
Those liberals are all heart.
How much would Romney or Christie pay?
Just curious: what product were you selling that allowed such variance in pricing?
Public opinion polling and consulting services (retired effective a few weeks ago). I have the communication skills, the credentials, and the reputation to justify charging more than my competition, and liberals are not good at evaluating how much of a premium to pay for abstractions. My preference would have been for the liberals to go away, and they understood that my price quotes were not negotiable, but most paid without complaint.
How does he ID the libs? Watching them get out of a Prius in the parking lot? Gray haired guys with pony tails? A copy of New York magazine under their arm?
Yep. That has become a major problem for stores. People also buy clothing to wear to a special event and then return it for a refund. What a deal! Free rental.
"Oh, those rich store owners can afford it."
