Utah Business Owner Fires Two Liberal Employees To Cover Cost Of Obamacare…

Posted by   + Show Post

 

Sounds fair to me.

Via MSN News:

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.

Lee did not return a telephone call from MSN News on Friday to expound on the comment.

Contacted by the Tribune Thursday, Lee said he picked the two employees in large part on the basis of their politics, according to the newspaper. But he added that there were other issues as well, which he didn’t detail, and said the two workers “were not top performers.”

He said that he didn’t think the firings were illegal. “Is your political affiliation protected?” he was quoted as saying. “I don’t believe it is, but I don’t know.”

Utah law says private employment in the state is generally “at will.” That means a private employer can fire a worker without cause and without notice.

So when I go to the soup kitchen I should just not feed conservatives since I didn't like Bush's policies?

This guy is an all out jerk. He has no idea who they voted for, what policies they agree with, or anything else about them than they are liberals. I hope they sue him and win. Then he might know what its like to lose out because someone doesn't like his beliefs.

I see it more as "oh good.. Now I have someone/something I can blame my selfishness and greed on."


Quoting RedHatBox:

I can kind of see why he did it. If people are having to let employees go due to policies they feel the administration has made, they would think of letting those blasting complete loyalty to the administration first, wouldn't they?

Does it matter?

It isn't like I would be that much of a jerk. I was making a point.

Please make it clickable, the one I found this morning was created this month. Would mean very new business and most likely a stunt.

Quoting blues_pagan:

I found this FB page

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Terry-Lee-Forensics/138194809586369


Looks like the douchebag is real.

Quoting DawnPratt23:

Here is the local article on it. This is the paper that claimed to do the interview, which is turning out to be fake. I have yet to find any business info for him and neither can anyone else.

Quoting jaxTheMomm:

Oh zilla....  I don't know why you do this.

My iPhone was on vibrate.  No, I wasn't eating chili.  Nor was I knitting and no, I'm not Canadian.  Yes, I had a great time out with friends.  Go enter that in your "things about jax" spreadsheet for handy reference later. 

Done?  Ok.  

I can't find anything on Terry Lee forensics.  If this business actually does exist, he's taken down his FB page etc.  It may be true, but I tend to think he was just bragging maybe?  I could be wrong though.



Quoting imamomzilla:

 That's the same reaction I had......regarding your "bouncing phone".



LOL



Quoting jaxTheMomm:



Something about this I'm not buying.
