Man Opens Smoothie Joint And Charges All Liberals $1 More Than Conservatives

What is the issue?

In what could be a clever but ultimately (maybe) destructive bit of viral marketing, some guy in church-town suburban Utah just opened a smoothie store and is charging liberals $1 extra for his product. The move got him on the local news, and has since earned him a ravenous herd of freedumb-loving Facebook commenters that come from both sides of the political spectrum, and coverage on AOL/HuffPo. The smoothie place — officially, the “I Love Drilling Juice Bar” — takes the extra dollar from liberals and donates it to conservative causes. The owner says that “all three liberals” who’ve purchased smoothies since his store’s opening have happily paid the surcharge. TC mark
