Time to get rid of the dead weight.

A Utah businessman fired two lib employees after the election because Obama’s policies were costing his business money.
MSN.com reported, via Free Republic:

The head of a Utah forensics company says it’s only fair that two liberal employees were let go because liberal policies are costing his business.

A Utah business owner says he fired two employees in large part because they supported President Barack Obama.

“They were Obama supporters. We just knew they were,” Terry Lee, owner of Terry Lee Forensics, a Cedar City, Utah, digital forensics company, told The Salt Lake Tribune on Thursday.

Lee first mentioned the firings in the comments section of another story in the Tribune about a Vernal, Utah, smoothie shop owner charging “liberals” a higher price than “conservatives” for drinks. That shop owner said “liberal programs” are costing his business more, so it’s only fair that left-leaning customers should pay more.

According to the Tribune, Lee showed his support for the tactic by writing:

“Love it. We had to let two employees go to cover new Obongocare [sic] costs and increased taxes. Found two Obongo supporters and gave them the news yesterday. They wanted the idiot in the Whitehouse [sic], they reap the benefits.”

The comment was later deleted by the author.

Federal and Utah law do not prevent private employers from firing employees on the basis of political affiliation.

  1. And no, of course not, it doesn’t sound like a case of sour grapes at all.

  2. Hey Jim – A woman in Gilbert AZ ran over her husband with her car when she found out he didn’t vote against Obama!

  3. Works for me! Good on him to demonstrate businesses in Right to Work States work at the pleasure of the company. There are ZERO guarantees of continuing employment and ‘firings’ do not need reasons.

  4. Reap : Sow

  5. How can this be? All the consequences were supposed to fall on the evil child-eating rich, Rethuglicans, and Tea Baggers? /s

  6. Hmm… Frankly, its terrible to not have employment. So it looks like the other shoe hasn’t dropped, yet.

    However, everything a has price. Especially our choices.

  7. I think we’re doing this the wrong way! We should make the O supporters work and pay those high taxes, while we reduce their pay and make them work more, for less. Give the raise to the ones that voted against the theft in chief..by giving the extra money to the ones that didnt vote for this crap, the “progressives” get to pay taxes for both!

  8. Obama has the mentality of a rapist. His followers should be treated accordingly. Libloons are all nice and kindhearted, until they use the government as a tool to rape other people’s rights. Turnaround is fair play.

  9. At first I was irate that someone would fire a person over personal belief, but then I began to think.

    If a person took personal action knowing that it would harm the company they worked for would it be wrong to fire them?

    Is it time libs fire conservatives and conservatives fire liberals? Very scary thought….but I guess academia has been doing this for decades….and now they simply don’t hire a known conservative..

  10. #9 dittogirl, I like your way of thinking. Why should that businessman now have to pay for those progressives’ almost two years worth of unemployment benefits. I know he is probably already paying the unemployment penalty if his payroll is over $20,000 a quarter, but still it is the thought.
    Make the socialists get a huge dock in pay, cut their work hours to less than 28 hours and put them in some menial work so if they do mischief it will be at minimal cost to the boss\owner.

  11. Notice the racial animus displayed by the business owner. The two employees fired certainly deserve to work for a better employer. I think they will end up better off.

  12. Leave it to airhead-loser to throw the race card. Tell us airhead … where did the employer mention race? Yea, that’s what I thought …

    Sorry, but your assumption that the employees were of any particular race, just because they were Obama supporters, makes YOU the racist …

  13. However, we deserve some better trolls …. the ones they keep sending us are incredibly stupid.

    “And no, of course not, it doesn’t sound like a case of sour grapes at all.”

    Duh … I think that was the whole point of the story, wasn’t it Mitchell? The people who knew better than to vote for Obama have every right to be bitter. They know Obama’s reelection is going to have negative consequences, and that they’re going to get stuck dealing with them, so the LEAST they can do is identify who’s responsible and send as many of those negative consequences back where they came from as possible. I plan to do the very same thing. America’s low-information parasites thought they were going to get a free ride on the backs of their hard working neighbors for the next four years, bu they’re in a for a big surprise. We aren’t going to forget what was done to us, and the repercussions of this insulting pocket-picking they’ve foisted on us are going to last a lot longer than four years. Paybacks are a bitch ….

  15. #14 If you would actually read my brief and accurate response, you would notice that I did NOT say that the employees were of any particular race. However, you should also read the business owner’s comments, which I have copied here:

    “Love it. We had to let two employees go to cover new Obongocare [sic] costs and increased taxes. Found two Obongo supporters and gave them the news yesterday. They wanted the idiot in the Whitehouse [sic], they reap the benefits.”

    The comment was later deleted by the author……………

    Now why exactly would the business owner delete this comment if there wasn’t the clear racial animus contained within. “Obongobare/Obongo”. Come on, you don’t have to be an astrophysicist to see what that is all about.

    Call me racist if it makes you feel better, if you think it will erase the fact that there is a deep seated thread of racial hatred within certain factions of the Modern American Right. It’s still there – deal with it.

  16. “Obongocare.” There it is. If he is so proud of his racism, why did he delete the comment?

  17. The measures may be extreme but I understand the business owner’s frustration. That having been said, however, who should he be more upset with; the liberals whose policies are hurting his business or the lazy republicans who sat on their rears for the last four years and complained about the policies on blogs and comment sections but still couldn’t manage to get out and vote this administration out of office? Many people complained that they didn’t like Romney any better than Obama so they did nothing at all. I hate what is happening to this country but this what you get when you do NOTHING. Some people got out there but obviously not enough. I’d be willing to bet that close to 50% of the people commenting on these sites and blogs didn’t even darken the doorways of the poll booths last election, so they have very little right to complain about anything. If it applies, take it for what it’s worth; if not, let this comment slide off like water off a duck’s behind.

    what the hell does race have to do with it?
    tired argument that idiots use.
