Are the following listed statements equivalent?

  • 1: (1) is in a disjunction with (1)
  • 1: (1) is in a disjunction with (1) OR 1: (1) is in a disjunction with (1)

(the intended meaning of (1) is 'this statement is in a disjunction with itself')

idempotency of disjunction leads me to thinking that they are equivalent yet they seem to have different truth values , since the first sentence in the list , seems to be false when it is not in a disjunction with itself and the second (composed) sentence in the list seems to be always true, such that they seem not to be equivalent.. what are you're thoughts?
