If this country wants to get its fiscal house in order, the thinking goes, it needs all the money it can get.
And in the small town of Vernal, Utah -- population 9,248 -- George Burnett is doing his part.
The owner of “I Love Drilling Juice & Smoothie Bar” is charging self-identified liberal customers $1 more than their conservative counterparts for a 16-ounce smoothie, The Times reported Tuesday.
So let me get this straight. Burnett, whose business is in Uintah County -- where 10,001 voters, or 90%, went for Mitt Romney and most of the remaining votes went to liberals -- is taxing the 10% a buck apiece?
How very … Barack Obama of him.
Kudos to Burnett for stirring up some news for his oil-themed business, but what the man has in publicity generating prowess, he apparently lacks in fundraising ability.
