Texas: Fighting A Losing Battle

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 29, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is a saying that the battle may be lost (or won) but the war is not over, and it is exactly this fact of life which many people in the United States should take to heart. The Supreme Court may have the final word on same-sex marriage as far as the law goes, but […]

The Darkest Days Of Humanity

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is hard to believe that some count the last hours as being the darkest ever. I do not mean in a natural light sense – sunlight, daylight saving time and all that – but in the sense of a set back for the human race, a turnaround in the wrong direction, a return to […]

Trade: Stating The Obvious

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 13, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Before I even start: I am not a political person, much of what happens in politics, regardless of which country you choose in the democratic world, will happen no matter which political party happens to be in power. If it make sense for the country, or their ideal of a country, they will try to […]

It’s Not Just Old Age

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 19, 2015 in Personal |

I am reminded, in a timely post from an online friend here in Germany, of how easy it is to forget, to lose, to grow out of the habit of using a language. In my recent post on various problems in the local area, I constantly referred to a certain road structure as being a […]

Apes And Worker’s Rights

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 22, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It was a close-cut thing, but for a few hours the US justice system really showed what it is capable of. It’s not enough that they fight over whether a woman can wear red shoes on a Sunday, or a man can tether his giraffe to a street lamp, now we have human rights – […]

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 […]

Wearing Your Daughter’s Clothes

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

At a guess I would say this must be a slip of the typing fingers because there is clearly enough room to elaborate on what is caught between those brackets. Screenshot Source: Twitter I can understand Moms wearing their daughter’s clothing, for all the reasons the article mentions, but a Dad wearing his daughter’s clothing? […]

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 […]

Looking Back To The Old Home

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 22, 2014 in Personal |

Of course I still keep up with the news from back in the States, who wouldn’t? I am sure there are plenty of people who leave the country of their birth, the land they have called home for their entire lives, and still need to look back, to see what is going on, even stay […]

Spock: Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 11, 2014 in Internet |

Censorship is a strange thing, especially when it is political censorship. Take, as an example, the decision by the Chinese censor to remove all references to Vladimir Putin placing a warming blanket around the shoulders of Peng Liyuan, wife of the Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, to protect her from the rain. Clearly, for the Chinese, […]
