Utah juice bar charges liberals $1 more
Associated Press - Thursday, January 17, 2013
SALT LAKE CITY — A juice bar that charges liberals $1 more than conservatives says those on the political left are happy to oblige in the Utah oil town of Vernal - "all three of them," the owner jokes.
But wait. Do conservatives favor almond milk with blended avocado?
Yes, says George Burnett, a conservative who happens to be a fitness nut and a fan of healthy food. Weeks after he opened the I Love Drilling Smoothie & Juice Bar,
he's listing one price for conservatives and $1 more for liberals, whom he blames for many of the country's problems.
"At my prices, it's still a good deal. But those who believe in big government and reckless spending cost all of us. So I should charge them more," Burnett said Wednesday.
Burnett can't really tell a liberal by appearance "unless they drive up with out-of-state plates in a Subaru," he said. "I know it because they flip me off."
Burnett said he was putting aside liberal surcharges for conservative causes. This month he's donating it to the Heritage Foundation.You cant make this stuff up.
