The government shutdown will end soon. Why? Because Americans are learning some very interesting, unauthorized lessons from it

1) War memorials do not exist for veterans, civilians, those killed or wounded. They exist as symbols that the government and corporations use to increase their power over us.

2) If the government funds any part of something, such as a public park, then the government claims to OWN it entirely.

3) People who make your life better (researchers, meteorologists, park rangers) are INESSENTIAL. People who make life worse (surveillance, military, anyone with a weapon) are ESSENTIAL.

4) Politicians of all stripes will fight over the bragging rights to a steaming pile of shit corporate handout.

5) Politicians are much more concerned to impress a tiny corps of lobbyists than 300M American citizens.
