When people buy lefty products like movies and CDs the lefties that money and use it against them. Turnabout seems fair.

Take their money and send some of the profit to Free Republic.

Yeah but tell them: “Due to a problem with our suppliers (or labor, ect) our price has just gone up” and rip them off!

Take their money and make a large donation to the candidate of your choice with a part of the profit. Then smile every time you think about that.

Mixing business and politics is bad business, be it crony capitalism or failing to pursue a profit.

I’m sure there’s a Ferengi rule of profit about just this concept...

In 2004 my wife and I were at a craft show in Charlotte selling her handmade beadwoven jewelry. Two women covered in Kerry/Edwards paraphernalia—buttons, stickers, what have you—walked up and started browsing. They were polite enough, and didn’t bring politics up to us, and eventually bought a bracelet priced at $19.95. We were as polite to them as we were to any other customer we saw over the four days we were there.

The next week, we made a contribution of precisely $19.95 to the 2004 re-election campaign of George W. Bush.

Short version: Take their money and use it against them. The Left does it to us (Hollywood, the media, etc.). We can do it right back.

I have the same dilemma, kinda....
I needed some work done in my kitchen.
I called a local contractor from the local paper.
We talked and he gave me an estimate and then I saw him pull out of the driveway with 2 bumper stickers.
One said “Obama Biden 2012”, the other said “Palin, Bachman both no brainers.”
Now when he calls and says when do I start I need a good comeback and I know the best are here on Freerepublic.Any suggestions?

Political stickers on a business truck is a “no gainer”!

While money exists, commies don't get mine.

Bye Bye to Obama/Biden and their no brainers.

Just charge them more and say it is a progressive pricing policy to help those who may not have the means to pay as much as them because they won life’s lottery.

Apparently there’s a number of freepers that think it’s ok to rip people off just because they have different political beliefs.

This is America, you sell to whomever wants to buy. Not doing so would be like posting “No Jews” or “No Irish” signs, it’s wrong and it’s unamerican, period.

This is a bit different is a sense that he is taking YOUR $$.

What I would do..

I would politely say, “I have decided to hire someone else based on the fact that after seeing your bumper stickers, if you run your business like the ones you voted for then my work will a) never get done and b) my grandchildren will still be paying for it 60 years from now”.

Prices for whiny white-guilt liberals should be triple.

Or tell him/her that you are holding the item they want for a minority buyer.

I have had to say this on more than one occasion. Now I find myself installing rugs, changing light fixtures, and painting rooms myself. The next job is fixing the Ball and flapper in two toilets.

Also I have become my own geek squad for my electronics.

And that’s for all contractors, even those without bumper stickers (sigh).

make money and keep yer opinion to yourself.

They have a right to their opinion but, you have moral imperative as well....

That is to sell your products and make money.

It’s business, not politics.

There's a lot of “gettinevenism” in this conundrum. Folks have been at the pointy end of the stick for a long time, and the urge to rip somebody off in return is a very difficult temptation to resist.

Just conduct the transaction ethically — that’s the best revenge. To hell with his political beliefs — if you refuse to sell him the product, he’ll just obtain it elsewhere.

A libtard’s money is just as good as anyone else’s.
