It is a shame, that funds compulsorily extracted via unlawful "Income Tax", should result in the Military awarding this contract to a University, to develop <"....Portable Fuel-Cell Battery with Ultralife....">.

Just think how useful such a thing would be, if it was to be used in many normal civilian situations.

But in the present climate, run by those who don't care what your hard-earned cash is spent on, except to enrich themselves further, we can expect no better.

Kind Regards....
