Think health food equals hippie food? Not always: the I Love Drilling smoothie shop (yes, that is really what it's called) in Vernal, Utah is charging liberals a dollar more than conservatives for their smoothies. The extra dollar is then donated to conservative causes. The shop's owner, George Burnett, does not say how he identifies whether people pay the liberal price or the conservative price, but he does tell local news channel KSL, "Actually all three liberals have been happy to pay it." He has gotten some blowback on Facebook and on Yelp, where Michael M. warns, "Don't go there unless you want to be offended and then potentially dead." In the local new report below, Burnett doesn't seem too worried.
