    How is it that just anyone can write a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said something extremely impressive more like youve painted a quite picture above an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you actually think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not truly say something?
