Witches For Hire

Romanian Witch Protest

Have you heard about the witches?

The ones in Romania?

The ones who orchestrated a group assembly yesterday to place curses on the government?

For the first time in Romanian history the witches, warlocks, fortune tellers, astrologers, dragon tamers, Samantha Stevens (yes I am that old), and Harry Potter are being required to register their professions and pay taxes. They will now be included in the Romanian labor codes and will pay 16% income tax and make contributions to health and pension programs, like other self-employed people. (Do registered witches charge more than unregistered ones?)

This is being done in an attempt to bring into alignment the sun, moon, stars, and failing economy. I can only guess the practitioners of these cursing arts must be doing a bang up business if taxing their combined professions would right a failing economy.

Superstitions are no laughing matter in Romania — rumored home of Dracula and other much less famous vampires. President Traian Basescu and his aides wear purple on certain days, supposedly to ward off evil. Even the Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife, Elena, had their own personal witch.

The witches are against being taxed and are going to fight this new law the best way they know how. Curses.

In Romania, the witches from all directions are gathered on Romania’s southern plains and the banks of the Danube as a protest against new laws. Their idea was to cast spells on the taxing authorities by brewing cat crap and deceased dogs in a cauldron to aide them in casting the spell. They will also hurled the poisonous “mandrake” plant into the Danube so evil will befall the perpetrators of this new taxing scheme. (I am not fluent in witching so I want to know if they are going to throw the mixture on the politicians, get them to drink it, or what?

Queen Witch (Watch it witch. That is too close to my moniker of Queen Bitch.) Bratara Buzea will lead the witches in hurling plants, stirring cauldrons, and casting spells. She claims her spells always work.

If this works, and I’m following the outcome closely, I’m going to see if she is for hire. Hopefully she won’t have to pay taxes on money earned in a foreign country. If not, perhaps I can borrow her spells.

I believe there are a few politicians, law makers, and other big wigs in Washington who are under someone’s spell, and I want to drive the demons out. I don’t care if it’s the demons possessing the individuals, or the evil spirits controlling Washington. Either way works for me.

About Wanda Argersinger


  1. Very timely, Wanda. I’m working on Port Call to the Future, the sequel to House Call to the Past, which features Maria Hallett, my 13th great aunt who was accused of witchcraft on Cape Cod back in the early 1700s. If I run across any appropriate spells she might have cast on the hierarchy of that time, I’ll be sure to pass it on to you.

  2. Go Wanda! This might be the very thing to get our fearless leaders to actually lead.

  3. Just a question, when will you have TIME to be a witch in addition to all the other hats you already wear?

  4. Wanda, I thought you already were a witch. I’ve been told that you have whipped up some pretty good spells all on your own. Loved the story.

  5. Allrighty then…… let me know how that pans out, since I have a few on my list that need to be (de)spelled…… Love, just love it!!!

  6. Very interesting topic!

  7. Ooh yes, keep us all informed. Or maybe we can do the same and require the legalization of prostitution. See what kind of witchery that stirs up. haha

  8. What a information of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable experience on the topic of unpredicted feelings.
