Reading The News With A Political Slant

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 30, 2016 in News & Opinion |

If you give ten people a piece of text, ask them to read it and then write down their impressions, you’ll probably get ten different answers. This is something known only too well to the police: ask all the witnesses to describe the man who robbed the store, you’ll get widely differing versions. And so […]

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 […]

USA: Your Future Rights, After The Election

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 24, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There is no one, I do not doubt, who is following the campaigns for election as President of the United States of America, who does not weigh up what the candidates say and what it bodes for the future. The bulk of the questions o the various debates, during the campaign talks, in the news […]

The View From North Korea

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 18, 2016 in Internet |

Anyone have any idea what real spin is? I don’t mean the facts and figures which some candidates push out during their campaign speeches, trying to gain office in some political backwater or, dare I say it, in the United States of America, but real spin? Screenshot Source: DPRK News Service / Twitter If anyone […]

Someone Who Doesn’t Just Preach…

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

There seems to be practically nothing but criticism for the European policy on refugees fleeing the various wars and catastrophes in Afghanistan, Syria and elsewhere around the world.

Claiming The Glory, Unearned

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 12, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

If you reads through the m,any posts here, you will notice that I do not take any one particular side when it comes to politics, whether it be US or European. Unlike many, if not most, politicians, I am keen for the best to be done for the country in which I live, and not […]

The True Language Of America

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The United States of America. Such a wonderful idea, such a complicated and yet simple ideal but, like Communism, it only works on paper. The United States would be a wonderful place, I am told, if it weren’t for the people. Cut the people out – those who live there, not those who are only […]

Trying To Cover All Bases

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 19, 2015 in Internet |

No matter where you are, no matter what you may believe your Rights to be, there are some things which cannot be said, which cannot be published for all to see.

The State Of Education

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 17, 2015 in News & Opinion |

When I first read the breaking story about Ahmed Mohamed in Irving, I put my head in my hands, covering my eyes, and thanked providence that I didn’t and don’t have to face such blatant stupidity in my life. These are the people who are meant to teach us about life and prepare us for […]
