Romanian witches use spells to protest new taxes

MOGOSOIA, Romania – Solace for world leaders trying to enforce painful austerity measures: At least you're not running Romania.

Angry witches are using cat excrement and dead dogs to cast spells on the president and government who are forcing them to pay taxes. Also in the eye of the taxman are fortune tellers, who should have seen it coming.

And President Traian Basescu isn't laughing it off. In a country where superstition is mainstream, the president and his aides wear purple on Thursdays, allegedly to ward off evil spirits.

Witches from Romania's eastern and western regions will descend to the southern plains and the Danube River Thursday to threaten the government with spells and spirits. Mauve has a high vibration, it makes the wearer superior and wards off evil attacks, according to the esoteric group Violet Flame — which practices on Thursdays.

A dozen witches will head to the Danube to put a hex on the government and hurl mandrake into the river "so evil will befall them," said a witch named Alisia. She identified herself with one name, as is customary among witches.

I think we should all thoughtfully consider the meaning and finer implications of the word “curse” as we discuss Obama’s administration.

Can they be hired? I’d like them to perform this on Patty Murray, Maria Cantwell, Christine Gregorie, and the rest of the taxaholic Washington state dems.

Why not go for the one who signs the Bill into law? Pecking at the others is a waste of time.

Maria Campina, a well-known witch in Romania, said the legislation would have been difficult to execute because of the erratic nature of the business. But some suspect lawmakers were afraid of curses being placed upon them by the witches and Gypsy fortune tellers.

Geez, pennie, like you couldn’t have pinged me this a few minutes earlier, lol! I just got back from paying the property taxes and sure could have used the pointers. All I did was mumble @#^&%^@# under my breath. I’m all out of mandrake but have plenty of chili powder and garlic that would have been just as effective, don’cha think.

Oh! Get this! Was on the phone this morning trying to get the credit card company to lower the interest rate (I pay it off every month but whatever). Anyway, they said that since Hussein has been in office and the economy has been so bad that they aren’t lowering anyone’s interest rates. Ah ha, it’s now Obama’s fault!!!
