A reader writes:

As usual, we let the left win the argument when we allow them define the terms. If you control the language, controlling the argument is an easy task. It’s too late to educate the public on this point before tomorrows “shut down” but if we get through this there may be time to redefine what happens when the government supposedly shuts down.

If anyone has a link to all the things that will NOT be shut down, please post in comments.
