This issue marks our 10th year of existence and I’m incredibly proud that we have stayed true to our ideals.

The energy and enthusiasm of these movements are palpable – who hasn’t had a conversation or a heated debate with a friend, relative, or stranger about one of the movements?

Political Expedience and the Afghan War

by As the U.S. efforts in Afghanistan continue, one hears pundits muttering about how the Afghan War is arguably the longest war in the history of the United States.
