Securities and Exchange Comm.


Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

I *own* parts of the companies that I hold shares in. I do NOT want them spending MY money on their personal political whims and crystal ball gazing.

Companies don't spend money on candidates and politics - individuals do. People with their own political ignorance, bigotry and myopia. Those individuals do NOT have my permission to spend my company's money on this. They should be running the company, not trying to buy politicians - I doubt they are any good at it, and if they are then that's even worse.

I will spend MY money how I see fit - and I will vote for whom I like. Stop management wasting MY time and MY money by trying to subvert MY elections.

Ridiculous.

Thanks for listening

Sincerely,

Quentin Prideaux
