  • Things we don't want to happen, but have to accept. Things we don't want to know, we have to learn. People we can't live without, we have to let go.

Quote from article:  "In response they cast spells on the country's president and government." .... Hahahaha! :lol:

Still, if everyone else pays taxes, I don't see why they shouldn't have to also.

Although I think they should pay their taxes like everyone else, I think casting spells on their
president and government is just too funny for words. :w00t:

You can't throw them in jail for getting it wrong. That would be like throwing the weatherman in jail for getting it wrong.

They take your money and predict your future. If they make up some nonsense which you beleive to be true,then at the very least you should get your money back. If you put your life savings on the wrong horse prediction ..........

those who pay for predictions are taking a gamble, and they ought to know that. it's no one's fault but their own if they waste their money. that's like saying a casino ought to give you your money back if you don't win.

Now I find this extremely funny. It was supposed to warm up and it's 5F outside.

Get your fortune in writing and get it notarized by a licensed Notary Public. It's the only way to be sure.

Just means they'll get more and more vague with their prophecies.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
-Terry Pratchett

I would suggest the Romanian law the article is talking about would fit your criteria.
