    1 thought on “Nothin' But Good Times Ahead

    1. Good grief Some of her insights into the 1%, the right wing politics and Congressional dysfunction seem to have been written today, not in 1992 Glad I happened to find this old volume at the library And, there were certainly laugh out loud moments Gee I miss Molly Ivins.

    2. Molly Ivins was the Texas liberal of Texas liberals Her wit was clever and often cutting but never lacking for a foundation She had the power to be a giant killer but she also held a sympathetic regard for those who were targets of her columns Fun was never had at the expense of wisdom.

    3. Let me start this discussion by pointing out that I am not antigun I m pro knife Consider the merits of the knife.In the first place, you have to catch up with someone in order to stab him A general substitution of knives for guns would promote physical fitness We d turn into a whole nation of great runners Plus, knives don t ricochet And people are seldom killed while cleaning their knives.Synopsis A collection of newspaper columns from the early 90s by the late, great political commentator Mol [...]

    4. Hilarious and depressingly still relevant to today s political climate What I really love about Molly Ivins is that she is blunt and loud about her criticisms of Texas politcs and politics in general but even in her snarkiest, most angry moments, you get a real sense of just how much she loves and respects Texas and its people There is nothing worse than a political analyst or pundit who looks down on the people and places they write about No matter how much I might disagree with some of the stu [...]

    5. Molly Ivins died almost seven years ago This book is a collection of columns and other short writings that were written about thirty years ago Frankly, change the names of the players that s technically politicians and you d never know they weren t written last month Ms Ivins had the talent of writing lovingly about the politics of Texas and the U.S while simultaneously hating many of the results I really miss reading her on a regular basis And I ve hardly spent any time in Texas at all.

    6. This is a book of Molly s columns from 1991 to 1993 It covers the presidential campaigns of Bush, Clinton, and Ross Perot The principal difference between then and 2016 is that the richest 1 percent then only owned 40 percent of the nation s wealth, not the 90 percent that Sanders quotes today The other problems guns, gridlock, money in politics seem not to have changed at all I can t decide whether Molly would have despaired or just laughed it off.

    7. Read this a long time ago and you would really have to be a hard core political nerd with an affinity for Texas hijinks to appreciate Ivins essays However no author has ever made me laugh as hard as she has She is very much missed.

    8. In 1993, I was 6 or 7 years old I was into making friends than learning about politics I love Molly s take on politics back then I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in what was going on in our government back then I found this book entertaining and hilarious.

    9. Molly, where are you when we need you And even worse, just change a few names and these could be re run.

    10. Another great book written by Molly Ivins who grew up with George and knew him his entire life and her opinion of his presidency.

    11. I do so adore Molly Ivins Her wit is devastating, and her ability to boil complex political machinations down to the nitty gritty is a boon to all mankind.We are bereft without her.

    12. Ivins s Texas humor kept me amused through a good deal of jury duty It s both funny and depressing to see how much we re still fighting the same political battles of 1992 1993.

    13. This is a collection of columns Molly Ivins wrote from 1991 to 1993, and I had forgotten a lot of the shenanigans that politicians had gotten up to way back then Boy, talk about proto trumpism The reactionaries were in full cry and laying the groundwork to take over our government and destroy liberty and honor, and they have nearly succeeded Even then, Molly was pointing out the dangers of income inequality, deregulation, and the flood of guns, fear and hatred, and we have come much farther down [...]
