The Annual Speed Test

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 18, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The third Germany-wide ‘blitz marathon’ provided an extremely high number of motorists with a photograph that they will prize for a long time to come, even though none of them wished for such an image. Across the entire country an army of police officers – over ten thousand according to some reports – manned the […]

The Art Of Building Bridges

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 23, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I am sometimes at a loss to understand the mentality of those who put something off, or seek out an alternative, in order to save money in the short-term, knowing full well that a long-term solution must be found. There are two wonderful instances of this form of money-saving in our local area at the […]

People Are Strange

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 11, 2015 in News & Opinion |

If anyone anywhere believes that the strangest creature on this small green planet is not the human, then I am sorry to have to tell them that they’re very naive! There is no doubt in my mind that the world would be a very dull place if people weren’t so strange, and a lot of […]

Can You Love America?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 26, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The long line of personal insults aimed at President Barack Obama over the years is unlikely to come to an end with the end of his term in the White House. The latest, deepest and probably most hurtful is that aimed at him by Rudy Giuliani, claiming that he does not love America. The comment […]

Freedom Of Expression And Speech Over Religion

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Do people really appreciate, let alone understand, what it is that they are marching in favor of? Do those same people understand the massive difference between what is being claimed as a Right, as a Freedom, and the Rights and Freedoms of those people on the other side of the street? The killing of so […]

Je Suis Charlie: The Final Censor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 8, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is one thing to remove a few cleavages because a censor does not feel them to be appropriate for a modern-day audience, it is quite another thing to use a weapon to perform an act of censorship. As I wrote about the Chinese censorship the other day, about the banning of a film by […]

Something For The Censors

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 6, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I guess it all depends on how you wish to look at things. For the one something is aesthetically beautiful, for the other it is a sexual degradation. Some consider the written word to be solid and nothing but the truth as passed down from on high, while others consider it to be filled with […]

No Service, No Sale

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 2, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I wouldn’t have believed it if I’d only heard about the course of events, but I was actually there and got to see the whole thing. Chances are no one else noticed me, otherwise perhaps things would have been different, but I was there, in the background, with my mouth hanging open in sheer amazement. […]

Stop And Frisk: An Assumption Of Guilt

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 2, 2014 in News & Opinion |

I was asked a strange question today, one which was designed to reflect on me as an American and on American society as a whole. The fact that it backfired with me makes no difference, I am not the same as others, it saddened me that such a question should be posed at all. If […]

Response To The Death Of An American Soldier

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 9, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Ever really wondered how the death of an American soldier is received by Americans? Ever taken a look at how people react when a soldier is killed on American soil? Believe me, I don’t think that you want to; it is akin to the more rabid gun owners of the fair land, who discount the […]
