I think short selling out to be outlawed. I have lost 15,000 dollars out of a total investment of 33,000 dollars. I am 53 years old and this is my life savings. Europe did the right thing. I honestly believe that these short sellers and hedge funds are actually against the people of the United States of America. They are filthy rich and they have a contempt of common people. They actually take joy in putting companies out of business (if you don't believe me just look at the joy in finerman's (on fast money) face when the market goes down big and the terror in her face during the few times the market goes up) and seeing people lose their jobs and their life savings. You may think I am crazy, but I actually believe that they are engaging in terrorist activities by trying to destroy the United States. I believe they are enemies of the United States. They spread rumors and do every thing they can to get the rules in their favor. Why do you accomodate them? I wrote to the SEC many times several months ago about short selling and you defended the short sellers. Are you people against the United States also? Mark to market rules can only exist when there is a market. When are you people going to understand this? What is this moral question? Is it immoral to try to save the economy of the United States? You guys are just for the rich getting richer and against the common person. You love to see people fail and lose their livelyhood as long as the rich get richer. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves.
