Guns And Nipples: The American Way Of Life

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2016 in News & Opinion |

I don’t know when I first gave up on north American society and its values, but it was probably about the same time as I discovered that Europe is not the Old World with Old World Values some politicians have claimed it to be. And now I look back at the values of the north […]

Close Call: Donald Trump Shooting Threat

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 29, 2016 in Internet |

We all know how Twitter works: the older Tweets are at the bottom, you scroll down and read in reverse order. So the lower one of these two entries came first and it looks, if you happen to be reading my timeline, as if Mark Knoller is replying to Christian Datoc (as re-tweeted by The […]

Terrorism: The Years Ahead

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 31, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The players have changed, but their methods remain the same: attack, destroy, confine, maim, rape. It has never been, and never will be, simply a case of attacking with guns and bombs; the fear of attack must also be sown; the constant worry that the streets are no longer safe; the realization that we, as […]

Gun Violence: God Isn’t Fixing This

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 4, 2015 in News & Opinion |

If you didn’t catch the Daily News front page yesterday, you’re bound to find enough comments on it around the Internet, from agreement through to ‘prayer shaming’ comments. Basically it quoted some of the candidates for the job of President who called on people to remember the people killed in San Bernardino, their families and […]

Gun Control: It’s Never The Right Time

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 28, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There’s a good reason why no one wants to talk about gun control: it would be inconsiderate to the families of those people who have just been killed in yet another rampage on American soil. Rather, let’s make the suggestion that even more people should be armed, such as kindergarten teachers, Army recruiters, theater popcorn […]

Poignant

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 3, 2013 in Immoral Conversations |

This would be funny if it wasn’t such black humor: police shut down the Capitol today amid reports that shots had been fired. That is, the shutdown government has been shutdown amid talks on how to stop the shutdown. That guns are involved merely adds to the dark side of the humor, if you can […]

Too Good To Be True

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 2, 2013 in Personal |

The shutdown in the United States is not all-encompassing, so all those thieves and villains out there hoping that the police aren’t going to be out on the streets can pack their house-breaking equipment back into the cupboard and stop rejoicing. One thing that the shutdown has brought with it, just the same as the […]

Importing Violence

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 14, 2013 in News & Opinion |

Anyone who wants to get elected, regardless of the office being applied for, needs to attract and convince those who make the decisions. In the case of politicians in the United States, this means they need to be able to speak to all the voters in a constituency and get them all on their side, […]

Well Balanced

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 19, 2013 in News & Opinion |

The laws of the United States of America are so well balanced that nothing can go wrong: we and our children are protected against every eventuality, no matter what it might be. Photo Source: momsdemandaction And that is a good thing, right? Love & Kisses, Viki.

Second Reaction

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 16, 2013 in News & Opinion |

Probably the same as everyone else who wasn’t directly involved in events yesterday, I got the news about the Boston Marathon through a news service quite some time after the explosions. The German services had next to nothing – which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise – and the US services were equally […]
