....You are in Great Britain right and America did come to your rescue back in the 40s when Hitler wanted to own you. But I actually think you are just bitter because you lost the war over here in 1783 when we broke away from the oppressive British Empire.
"Rescue" is the wrong word. The US eventually helped out but it wasn't until 1942, the war started in 1939. Hitler had declared war on the US, so you could say that GB stopped him invading your country The US helped financially but it took GB years to pay back that debt. I'm grateful for what the US did in WWII but I also have a lot of respect for all the other countries that fought Hitler. It's estimated that around 10 million died in the Russian military, I'm grateful to them too.
Ah here we go. I won't disagree but history also includes the lend lease act and many unofficial aides before it was official. And I think there was something about Pearl Harbor and Germany declaring war on the US, that tipped the US into the war. LOL
"American Bund and the America First movement were especially active in opposing aid to the Allies. The American Communists also opposed aid—until Germany attacked the Soviet Union; then they demanded immediate intervention." Funny how that works? Those wacky Socialists were against the war, until it came to a theatre near them...
The other part was kind of like deposing King George, and I think some people are still bitter. But no problem, the US Civil war is still going on, even though that ended 146 years ago. people have a hard time forgetting disagreements.
According to Monty Python that's why the Dodo is extinct, and I believe them!
Meanwhile, Editorial... No editing contents, removing or adding elements. No excessive color adjustments (and already we have, "what's excessive", a subjective term), no changing the situation by cropping, no staged news, and basically, things being as they really are. Changing to B&W is not a problem, but making a brown sky blue is not allowed. Funny that IS shows an example of healing skin as not allowed.
Another fake photo controversy: World Press Photo has disqualified one of the winnershttp://www.petapixel.com/2010/03/03/world-press-photo-disqualifies-winner/
Also: It wasn’t the crop, nor the post-processing, that caused the photograph to be disqualified, but the removal of the portion of the foot
that is visible between the thumb and fingers of the hand being bandaged.
"Having grown up in Belfast in the 70's I can say that at least 80% of "events" photographed were either staged or put on for the cameras.."
"Several years ago a local TV cameraman broke the "unwritten rules" and videoed not just the protest, but the preparations beforehand. We saw the guard sergeant and the protest organizer politely discussing how the event would be conducted; the sergeant explaining to the protestors what they should do if they wished to be arrested, and what to do if they merely wanted to demonstrate; guards and organizers agreeing that elderly protestors and children should go first, so they could get out of the cold sooner; even guards suggesting to protestors' friends the best places to stand to get a good picture or video with the base's sign in the background."
"Terje Helleso — a nature photographer who was named Nature Photographer of the Year by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency in 2010 — was discovered to have published multiple images in which stock photographs of hard-to-find animals were Photoshopped into nature scenes."
