Also, the budget is easy to use when it is done properly.

The Post-War Transformation: Supposed Global Security

In addition to discussing the legally grey area surrounding the issue, Tucker also talks about the moral danger of the situation. It must be noted that this article is hosted on Defense One, which is less subtle in its support for US national security than most other sites.

When I tell people I am volunteering to help the environment, one of two reactions occur. Either they fully support me and encourage me or they tell me in despair that they don’t believe my actions will do much good in the grand scheme of things. The weird thing is, no one seems to be opposed to the idea of being environmentally conscious.

This semester, I have had two main volunteer projects ongoing. The first was the collection of signatures for a petition that aims to preserve biodiversity. The second was to help the plight of the monarch butterfly which is facing extinction.
