Excerpt of two sentences from linked article above of original article which it has posted in full:
By Scott Dodd
"Susan Rice, the candidate believed to be favored by President Obama to become the next Secretary of State, holds significant investments in more than a dozen Canadian oil companies and banks that would stand to benefit from expansion of the North American tar sands industry and construction of the proposed $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline. If confirmed by the Senate, one of Rice’s first duties likely would be consideration, and potentially approval, of the controversial mega-project."

You may quote short excerpts of someone else's work (one or two sentences, a paragraph at most); do not reproduce long passages.

Update as of December 1, 2012. The entire original article which I was told was complained about as being posted (in excerpt here with a link back) in violation of their rules is still posted on the eco watch site in full with no apparent problem. Perhaps there was then more to wanting this story hidden here than was disclosed. (?) Why would Current only be singled out regarding this?Excerpt of two sentences from linked article above of original article which it has... more

Why Liberals Are More Intelligent Than Conservatives
Submitted by unimatrix0
An article in Psychology Today cites a study that proves that liberals generally have a higher IQ than conservatives, and children with higher IQs tend to identify as liberals when they grow up.
via Psychology Today:
Analyses of large representative samples, from both the United States and the United Kingdom, confirm this prediction. In both countries, more intelligent children are more likely to grow up to be liberals than less intelligent children. For example, among the American sample, those who identify themselves as “very liberal” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 106.4, whereas those who identify themselves as “very conservative” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 94.8.

Bush administration Justice Department appointee Bradley Schlozman swore under oath before the Senate Justice Committee in 2007 that he had never used a political litmus test in hiring when he worked at the Civil Rights Division. However, a new report from the Justice Department indicates that he did just that.
As MSNBC's Keith Olbermann explained on Tuesday, "The Bush Justice Department is -- surprise, surprise -- not prosecuting Mr. Schlozman for his violation of, yes, civil rights laws, or for lying to Congress. But now at least we have Schlozman's own words."
