To the and Exchange Commission,

Securities and Exchange Commissioner,

Please take action to ensure financial advisers are legally required to
avise their clients in a manner that safeguards the financial security
of the client.  It pains me and probably millions of other Americans
that we have to have laws to force people to behave with integrity and
goodwill.  But history has shown that we clearly have many such people
in the financial arena.

Please protect us from them.  Please make your decision based on the
wellbeing of American citizens, all of whom need the money they are
investing to care for themselves.  Very few benefit from having peope
go bankrupt, become homeless, require government hand outs to survive,
etc.  Help us carry out our plans for being financially responsible and
financially secure in our senior years ( our entire lives actually) by
effectivly restraining those who would cheat us out of our invested
