Sitting Donkey
The Tired Donkey blogs about cocktails, ways to get the most out of your Mac at home, work, college . . . wherever. He used to write about the unending abuse suffered by the 51% of Americans who actually pay the federal income tax. But this became too depressing, and, frankly, no one wanted to read it.

Nevertheless, if you came here looking for the Tired Donkey's brilliant analysis of our dim-witted tax system, you can still find his earlier posts. Just check the archives or the

Change Is Afoot

As you can probably tell from the dearth of posts over the last six months, the Tired Donkey is more tired than usual. Exhausted really. He was wrong on health care reform. Really wrong. And he has lost his will to continue commenting on the politics of the day because, frankly, it’s just too depressing. Soon he and all the other Donkeys will begin paying a lot more in taxes both because of the .9% increase in Medicare taxes that will hit in a few years and because of the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. If any of these extra taxes would go toward paying down the federal debt, the Tired Donkey might be able to live with them, but we all know that’s not what’s going to happen. Despite the example of the collapsing Euro zone a short plane ride away across the Atlantic, we are doing everything we can to follow their failed model. What will the United States government decide to do next? Fix the economy by reissuing New Coke?

But despite his depression, the Tired Donkey still enjoys giving people advice and illumination. So he is going to do that. It just won’t be about politics anymore. At least not all the time. In the coming days and weeks, you’ll see some changes in the site design and some new kinds of posts. You may find them helpful. You may not. The Tired Donkey may even stop writing in the third person. But probably not.
