"I'm taking it anyway"

I am called to forgive these people, and to pray for them. I have gone to confession about my hatred for these idiots in Washington, D.C.

My priest said to hate what they do, and love and pray for them anyway.
It is not easy, and a struggle.

Then I read this:

Mr. Boehner confirms that at one critical juncture he asked Mr. Obama, after conceding on $800 billion in new taxes, “What am I getting?” and the president replied: “You don’t get anything for it. I’m taking that anyway.”


Oh Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us all.
[breathe. pray. repeat.]
