"An impromptu speech by an openly gay Missouri state lawmaker is going viral on social media.
In response to a colleague who proposed a measure that would ban transgender girls from competing on girls’ sports teams, Democratic state Rep. Ian Mackey shared his own experience of growing up in Hickory County, Missouri.
“I was afraid of people like you growing up,” he said Monday. “For 18 years, I walked around with nice people like you, who took me to ballgames, who told me how smart I was and then went to the ballot to vote for crap like this. I couldn’t wait to get out.”"

Greg Abbott's decision to ramp up inspections of commercial trucks at the border — an apparent effort to stop illegal drugs and migrants from being smuggled into Texas — turned up zero drugs, weapons, or contraband, according to The Texas Tribune. The Republican governor announced the policy earlier this month, instructing state troopers to inspect every commercial truck arriving in the US from border states in an attempt to stamp out "cartel-facilitated smuggling." The effort was implemented despite US Customs and Border Protection already having a policy in place to routinely inspect commercial cargo coming from Mexico.

The memo has only furthered speculation about Biden’s future in 2024, despite the president himself giving no indication he will not run, as long as he’s in good health. Biden is 79-years-old, while Sanders is 80. In a recent ranking of possible Democrats who could get the nomination in 2024, the Washington Post put Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg at number two, followed by Harris." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
