superposition Free

Scio nescio omnia scire. 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

    Sad to hear of those, so without hope, they will not attempt to do what can be done to improve things while they are alive.

    The privileged wealthy love to see the parties blaming each other so much, that they support both sides to keep the division going strong. And there’s an anomaly that needs to be dealt with …

    Having seen the unrestrained kleptocrats in both “major” parties, it is now wonder that there is so little progress being made for we the people no matter which party controls the government.

    Sadly, our president believes that his self-serving actions somehow help America as a by-product.

    An optimistic hope that positive action will someday soon replace futile thoughts and prayers.

    Yes the innocent victims of war, not just the dead combatants should be remembered. And yes, this is a war to establish a dialogue/compromise between a minority clinging to a controversial interpretation of the 2nd amendment vs people who want sane gun regulations (with extremists on either side).

    Eventually more will realize that strong leaders and democratic republics are mutually exclusive and that all citizens in a republic should have equal rights/protections under the law. Justice should not be only for old wealthy white men in a republic.

    Maybe you and I see different people as the root cause of the decline?


    As government was disabled from delivering on vital issues, the protected were able to protect themselves still more. For them, it was all about building their own moats. Their money, their power, their lobbyists, their lawyers, their drive overwhelmed the institutions that were supposed to hold them accountable — government agencies, Congress, the courts… That, rather than a split between Democrats and Republicans, is the real polarization that has broken America since the 1960s. It’s the protected vs. the unprotected, the common good vs. maximizing and protecting the elite winners’ winnings… [I]n a way unprecedented in history, they were able to consolidate their winnings, outsmart and co-opt the forces that might have reined them in, and pull up the ladder so more could not share in their success or challenge their primacy. Brill argues that the unprotected need things like “a realistic shot at justice in the courts,” writing that instead “the First Amendment became a tool for the wealthy to put a thumb on the scales of democracy.” And he shares these statistics about the rest of America today:

    • For adults in their 30s, the chance of earning more than their parents dropped to 50% from 90% just two generations earlier.

    • In 2017, household debt had grown higher than the peak reached in 2008 before the crash, with student and automobile loans staking growing claims on family paychecks.

    • Although the U.S. remains the world’s richest country, it has the third-highest poverty rate among the 35 nations in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development…

    Consider that some of the most valuable collectibles are bloopers, these coins may be valuable some day.
