Yet They Still Say It Cannot Be Done

Posted in Investing on 28, April 2018 by nathanbusch

Using a company that is in the S&P 100.

That is also in the S&P 500 Index.

The company is down 5.23% since 20180102 through 20180425.

The index is down approximately 6%.

My portfolio has gained 155% during that same time using a new investment strategy.

Yet Wall Street says that it cannot be done.

I hope that this helps.

I Remember

Posted in Life in the Country on 16, April 2018 by nathanbusch

Whilst drafting a note, I read a word that was not mine.

Then again I looked because I did not understand: Oh! I said to myself.

My old companion Dyslexia had juxtapositioned two letters of the word.

Then remembered did I: whilst home on leave from the Navy at just age 18,

I happened to mention that b and d differed none to me.

Before a second was gone, I was dragged by evil to the blackboard, screamed stupid did it, and lashings from an old 2″ leather belt rained down upon face, shoulders, back, and etc.

Said it: b is forward like the bow of a boat, d is not.

I remember.

Movie night past, the movie was of anger, abuse, and redemption.

I remember the beatings for errors on spelling quizzes

I remember the beatings until death was near for what I cannot remember

I remember the crushed bones

I remember the horror of the bruises showing in school

I remember crying in terror when others were beaten so badly that they fell to the floor unconscious, yet the beating did not stop

I remember a baby brother who was violently torn from a high chair and beaten so badly as to be crippled for life because of a bit of spilt milk

I remember.



In my bed … after the movie … I cried


I remember all after

50 years of working to forget

I know not whether he is dead or alive

nor does my pain care


in my bed … after the movie … I asked G_d

to let me remember how to forgive


I Can Only Imagine


Which of Us is the Sinnner?

Posted in Observations during Life on 10, April 2018 by nathanbusch

I say that I do not accept the teachings of your religion and I say that I do not accept your interpretation of what, or who, is G_d.

You judge me and say that I am a “sinner” for taking my position and that I will be cast into the Lake of Hell Fire and Damnation to suffer pain and agony, the intensity of which is beyond my ability to comprehend, for all eternity. You say that you will say “goodbye” as you fly by on your way to Heaven.

I ask: according to your religion, which one of us is the “sinner”?

I hope that this helps.

Just because something is, does not mean that it must be.

If you do not like that “something”, then change your life such that it no longer exists. You have the power to do so.

I hope that this helps.

Traitor Trump

Posted in Life in the Country on 18, February 2018 by nathanbusch

The evidence is indisputable that Russia manipulated the 2016 Election in the United States.

The only thing that Traitor Trump has said was that he won the election: therefore he is not going to bother his precious head about the Russian attack.

And one third of the voters in this country still support the lying Traitor Trump!

The Russians attacked the United States with the intent of destroying our country and Traitor Trump and his reprehensible supporters think that they should support Russia in its war against the United States? Incidentally, The Donald never joined the military to protect this country during the Viet Nam War because he got his college deferment and a rich daddy who kept him safely on American Territory whilst he spat on the very soldiers who went and fought for his right to bloviate about how wonderful is Murderous Putin.

It is time for patriotic Americans to standup to the Trumpies and eject them out of our country!

I hope that this helps.

The Morons at the Highway Department

Posted in Observations during Life on 23, January 2018 by nathanbusch

Interstate Highway 394 is the major traffic artery between downtown Minneapolis and the western suburbs.

Today, Minnesota had a major blizzard: lots of wet snow and very high winds.

The traffic was all but stopped throughout the Twin Cities: accidents were everywhere.

Not one single snow plow was to be seen anywhere!

Not one single grain of salt was applied to either Highway 394 or anywhere else!

Oh, but wait: in a few days, the sun will have melted all of the ice and snow from the roads.

Then, the snowplows will be out plowing bone-dry pavement and applying thousands of tons of salt.

And this makes sense to whom?


I hope that this helps.

Timing the Stock Market

Posted in Observations during Life on 10, January 2018 by nathanbusch

Many believe their own “analysis” or the “analysis” of market experts that the stock market is over valued and they must wait until the market crashes and then buy like drunken sailors.

Like my skill at BlackJack, I managed to time the market correctly for about a year many years ago: then, I quit doing both because I figured that my luck was about to run out.

Then I read Phillip Fisher “Common Stocks, Uncommon Profits” twice, Warren Buffet “Essays of Warren Buffet”, Benjamin Graham “The Intelligent Investor” five times, Graham and Dodd “Securities Analysis” twice; O’Shaughnessy “What Works on Wall Street” thrice, the Financial Times daily, the Wall Street Journal daily, The New York Times daily, the Economist, and Barrons weekly.

Now, I am wise enough to know that I know nothing at all except the following: emotions are lethal in the investing world.

It appears that the “market timers” all suffer from a single problem: which is that they are so fearful of any downdraft that they are forced to believe their own “analysis”. I would suggest that they are wrong on both counts.

I hope that this helps.
