Curmudgeon’s Corner: Garbage On My Mind

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan discuss the Biden stimulus bill that was just signed and the political implications of the bill. They also discuss the possible Manchin opening to reforming the filibuster rather than eliminating it, and what that might mean to Democratic policy options. And they discuss the one year anniversary of the WHO declaring a pandemic. But in addition to all the serious stuff, they also discuss dogs, cars, movies, and cartoons. So you’ve got all that too!
