    Of course it's happened. Think waaaaay back to the 1990s. I guess you were still in school and not paying attention.

Tesla Motors, the Silicon Valley electric carmaker, and Oakland's BrightSource Energy, a builder of solar-thermal plants, also made that list.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Your mystery Treasury data which you've failed to provide is not including replacement of munitions and equipment, death benefits for the families, nor the cost of Veterans care for the thousands injured and maimed.

    Diversion is exactly what you are practicing when you attack me for where I live instead of my positions on the issues.

    News bulletin for you: I was never mayor of Detroit. I was never elected to anything in Detroit. I have not lived in Detroit for over several decades.

    Got it?

    So much for the nonsense that I benefited from the war. Your personal attack is pathetic by mixing claims
