No Time for Senators…

Bill Nelson, center and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, right, were denied entry into the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Minors

…or Congresswomen either.

It’s not just in the Southwest, it’s in the Southeast too – Homestead Florida south of Miami is home to yet another child detention center. Doing due diligence, Senator Nelson and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz attempted to visit the facility yesterday to check on conditions there, and although they claim they had been given permission over the phone, when they got there the new tune was “you have to have applied two weeks in advance and in writing”

That’s not unexpected. It’s happened elsewhere and it fits with the general question being asked of the Trump administration: if you’re not hiding anything, why are you hiding everything? It fits with Stephen Miller’s proclamation that Trump’s power can’t be questioned even though the constitution says otherwise, and it even fits with the Fox Branch of government’s recent assertion that all these kids are paid, actors.

The irony, of course, is that we really don’t have an independent executive but a second-rate actor paid in Rubles

    I once had a friend who operated a dog boarding kennel, along with his training organization. He was an exceptional trainer and I learned a lot from him. His kennel was inside a huge, hangar-like building, and one day I asked him if I could take a look inside. He said no, claiming only staff were allowed inside because other visitors excited the dogs and added to their anxiety. At the time I accepted that, but I’ve learned a lot about how dogs think since that day 25 years ago, and I still wonder if there wasn’t something inside those big doors he didn’t want me to see.

      I know who you’re talking about Mike and I remember you telling me about that incident. I was going to board my dog Melly when I head to out of town, but the place I was going to take her didn’t allow people beyond the office to check out the kennel, so I took her down the road to the one that DID allow it. I’m not leaving my dog in a place I can’t see first.

    If you aren’t allowed access then something is being hidden. Simples.
