Ohh, So – It’s Joe Wilson Who’s The Liar

The other day when I heard Joe Wilson (R-SC) throw out that he is or has worked as an immigrant attorney, I was surprised.  I would think that would tend to make someone a tad more, empathic.  Well.  Shoulda known.

From TPM:

One lawyer from Wilson’s home county of Lexington — who said he has known Wilson personally since 1985 and described himself as very familiar with Wilson’s law practice — declared flatly to TPMmuckraker: “Joe has never been anything but a real-estate attorney.”

The lawyer allowed that it was theoretically possible that Wilson could have taken a few immigration cases on the side, or have worked in the field before 1985, but he described that possibility as remote. “You could call 150 lawyers down here and ask if Wilson did immigration law, they’d say: ‘Hell no.’

I mean, a lot of things are “theoretically possible.”  Cold fusion.  Invisibility cloaks.  Alien abductions…..cowmoon

  1. Regarding cold fusion see http://lenr-canr.org Cold fusion is experimental, not theoretical.

    Great strides have been made in invisibility cloaks as well, especially in Japan. See:

    I am sure you are correct about Rep. Wilson.

  2. Cold fusion – I remember the arguments going back and forth and back….. thanks for the link.

    Now invisibility cloaks – I’ll have to SEE it to believe it. 😉

    As for Wilson – mmhm…I’m not the only one.

    You can see them! Or not see them. You see what is behind them. See the photos from U. Tokyo at the HowStuffWorks link.

    There is a great photo here of someone standing in front of a car and tree, half invisible, ghost-like:

  4. Is it along the same lines of a hologram, then?

    The spooky one with the radiographic capability; we do that with fluoroscopy at work – where I am, btw.

  5. Not a hologram. These are camera tricks. That is to say, a camera on other side of the person’s coat takes an image which is projected onto the coat. The computer synchronizes the image with the objects in the distance. That’s tricky! In the case of “bone2” it is displaying a fake, drawn image which is synchronized to the position on the body where the screen is held at the moment.

    As you see, this cannot actually hide the person completely.
