As the battle heats up between the presumptive nominees for President, the word-wars have begun. Following Hillary's "love Trump's hate" breaking-barriers speech last night, a seemingly calmer, friendlier Trump went after Hillary exclaiming that "the only thing she's got going is the woman's card...and the beautiful thing is that women don't like her."

Both Cruz and Sanders win Wisconsin, in line with what the polls had predicted.
Here is the real question: will the Rockefellers divest of their full energy holdings, kept in blind, family, and various other (offshore of course - nobody wants to pay taxes, not even green liberals) unknown trusts, due to their disgust with the "morally reprehensible" company created by their ancestor?
