Occupy Occupy D.C.: You Want to Buy a Volt!

Your eyes are getting heavy… you are falling into a relaxed state of consciousness… what color Chevy Volt would you like to order?

Because ad campaigns, presidential cheerleading and lavish tax breaks failed to generate the public support necessary to keep the Chevy Volt assembly line running, the National Center is pitching in by employing a cut-rate, self-taught hypnotist to compel people to buy the Obama Administration’s favorite electric car.

Klepto the Mediocre, a self-taught hypnotist, will appear in Washington, D.C.’s Freedom Plaza (13th and Pennsylvania Avenue NW) at noontime on Tuesday as part of the National Center for Public Policy Research’s “Occupy Occupy D.C.” series of events.

“I’m usually detailed to the Transportation Security Administration, where I try to convince people that excessive pat-downs of the elderly is an effective way to fight terrorism,” said Klepto, “Selling the Occupy hippies on electric cars should be like shooting fish in a barrel, but I expect problems. They don’t seem to have steady incomes, and being green takes a lot of green if you know what I mean.”

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
