Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for July 22, 2011
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Harry Potter and the Deathly Deficit Harry: What is this place? Dumbledore: Young Harry, you have been chosen to learn the ways of being a...fiscal conservative! Harry: So I'm destined to become a Republican leader?! That explains so much! I'm white, suburban, and I live in a closet! Dumbledore: For your first lesson, you will learn that when taxes are lowered, government revenues rise! Harry: Impossible! Dumbledore: No, it's MAGIC! You must believe! Harry: But it defies logic, theory, and all historical evidence! Dumbledore: Perhaps, to muggles! But we must save them from themselves! BEHOLD! Dumbledore: TRICKULUS LAPSUS! I give money to the rich, and jobs magically appear! POVERTIA ABORTIUM! I cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and the deficit disappears! Dumbledore: Now, learn well. A deadly showdown approaches. Harry: Hmm...is there a spell for making your opponents think they're compromising when they're really giving up? Coming Soon: "Harry Potter and the Economist's Stoned"
