It is imperative that the SEC re-instate the ban against short selling.

Short selling has contributed to the recent financial ruin of our economy. I am in agreement with Jim Cramer of Mad Money regarding the viciousness of short selling.

Short selling is both unethical and illogical.

Reinstate the ban against short selling and put an end to the market manipulation, lies and deceit which are used to unfairly bring down stock prices.
