superposition Free

Superposition: In any network with 2 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/electrical network results in compromise and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. 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.

    And Congress has too many lawyers, not enough engineers/technicians, not representative of the population.

    There was a time when there were hi-tech parts, new and surplus, readily available locally to most Americans to experiment with as the Chinese and Koreans can access to now.

    It’s sad to watch a Congress become disrespectful, non-collaborative, uncompromising — the very things that would get them fired in any successful organization — allowed to hold the public hostage to their self-destructive whims. What, exactly is our impeachment process for — if it only serves to protect the worst offenders from being removed for not doing their jobs?

    It’s sad to see a once can-do America turned into a country that exports hi-tech manufacturing and imports technical experts [via H1B] to design our new products. Automation has always been the way to win the manufacturing cost war with China and other low-cost labor nations, but now we do not encourage an innovative, educated, workforce with readily-accessible, affordable education as other nations do.

    China has become the world’s job shop and will make things exactly the way you specify that they are to be made … e.g. iPhones, medical devices, etc. Their advantage is that there are fewer regulations to protect the workers which results in lower burden labor costs. If you do not specify enough critical details, they — like any other for-profit industry — will maximize profit and use the lowest-cost materials.

    Tell me again how governing by highly-emotional, unfounded, vengeful, political, gut-feel decisions with no connection to reality are going to make America stronger, safer, more resilient, more unified and more prosperous.

    The Democrats have a significant advantage with young voters … will they continue to embrace the oldsters and and ignore the young?

    A national poll released today by the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School indicates that while 18-to-29-year-olds are on track to match 2018’s record-breaking youth turnout in a midterm election this November and prefer Democratic control 55%-34%, there was a sharp increase in youth believing that “political involvement rarely has tangible results” (36%), their vote “doesn’t make a difference” (42%) and agreement that “politics today are no longer able to meet the challenges our country is facing” (56%). President Biden’s job approval has dropped to 41% among young Americans, down from 46% in the IOP Fall 2021 poll and down 18% overall in the past year.

    The Spring 2022 Harvard Youth Poll finds that 59% of young Black Americans, 43% of young Asian Americans, and 37% of young Hispanic Americans feel “under attack” “a lot” in America. Nearly half of LGBTQ youth feel under attack “a lot.”

    When it comes to student loans, 85% of young Americans favor some form of government action on student loan debt, but only 38% favor total debt cancellation. And the poll also finds that at two-to-one margins, young Americans are supportive of greater parental control over K-12 education and supportive of candidates that support teaching K-12 students that racism – intentional or not – is a fixture of American laws and institutions.

    Youth turnout in 2022 currently tracking record-breaking 2018 turnout; 55% of likely voters prefer Democratic control of Congress, 34% prefer Republican control. A majority disapprove of both parties’ performance in Congress amid weakening feelings of political efficacy.
