BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) There's more bad news in the cards for Romania's beleaguered witches.

A month after Romanian authorities began taxing them for their trade, the country's soothsayers and fortune tellers are cursing a new bill that threatens fines or even prison if their predictions don't come true. Superstition is a serious matter in the land of Dracula, and officials have turned to witches to help the recession-hit country collect more money and crack down on tax evasion.

I’m glad we don’t do this for political prognosticators, the cupboards might be bare.

I hate to bring this up.... but wasn’t Nancy and Ronald Reagan heavy into Astrology (which is basically witchcraft)?

Not Ronald, but Nancy.



Also, According to this article :

In his 1996 book, "The Choice," Washington Post editor and writer Bob Woodward said that as first lady, Sen. Hillary Clinton had seance-like sessions at the White House during which she conversed with late first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. At the time, the White House said the sessions were not seances.

EDIT TO ADD: Nancy has no chance of going back to the White House. As for Hillary... (perish the thought).

What a bunch of lookers.......could be the Teen Ms. Romania swimsuit competition.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Let’s do the same with politicians.

If they don’t do as promised before elections, they get fined and jailed.
