To the and Exchange Commission,

Why would anyone want to make it harder and riskier for hardworking
Americans to get financial advice?  To offer financial advice and try
to profit off it yourself is a form of deceit and theft.  How can this
be legal?  Why would anyone want such deception to be legal?

Please do the right thing close the loophole that allows such blatant
deception.  Every American who has worked and saved deserves better
with her money and future financial security.


Ms. Inara Mantenieks
