superposition Free

Superposition: In any network with two or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical or electrical network results in the summation (a compromise) and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. ¶Neither pure iron nor pure carbon are stronger than a carbon steel alloy. ¶Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. ¶A sensible solution for our persistent problems could be arrived at through the superposition of conservative and progressive ideologies as the founders had hoped for, but the puppet masters have taken control of our representatives to get their desires fulfilled at the expense of the republic. ¶My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. I try very hard to understand and listen to all views on an issue and am willing to change my mind if the evidence is real and conclusive. ¶John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." ¶"I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796 ¶If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed. - Mark Twain ¶An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. - Benjamin Franklin ¶None of Us is as Good as All of Us. -- Ray Kroc

    Should it be the responsibility of the FCC to protect AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from the “nasty, unappreciative consumers” who expect fair treatment?

    It is hard to get a people who value the chance of becoming wealthy so much that will use their rent money and grocery money to buy lottery tickets, to look ahead to a time when money will not be the solution to the world’s problems. The complacency about inequity is an effect of the aspiration to be wealthy. The words in the creeds of the world’s religions and the US constitution about equality and sharing are just words, not something that is considered as a serious guide for a society to live by. Crafty power seekers know this and exploit the gullible with empty promises of hope while their intent is to preserve the inequity and move more wealth from lower to upper classes.

    I think it was 1964 when the Republicans made the direction change. My Republican family did not like Goldwater at all; they were hoping that Nixon in ’68 would be a continuation of the Eisenhower policies but were soon disappointed as the party itself was different in focus.

    I hope this truly is an inflection point and we now (and forever) head in a better direction moving forward. It would be great to have a truly representative congress of good men and women with approval ratings in the high eighties or nineties (rather than the current teens or single digits) as a sign that the common good is finally being attended to.

    With our aging population, I wish we were more focused on finding cures for dementia than we are now. It is especially hard on family members when a loved one disappears … leaving a hollow shell of the person that once was inside.

    Indulging their personal wants seems to be their common bond.

    If we don’t start caring about each other -- that is, ALL Americans -- we could have another president and congress that is focused on the needs of the wealthy. I am thankful this Thanksgiving that there so many people who disapprove of our partisan divide and want a nation that works together for the common good.

    Happy Thanksgiving; I’m especially grateful that midterm elections are less than a year away.
