To the and Exchange Commission,

I don't believe having an IRA, 401(k), or any retirement account should
be a prerequisite to having a voice in this fight. When did it become
so universally acceptable to harm anyone for personal gain, whilst the
watchdog agencies, the so-called appointed to safeguard our interests,
looking on and the other way. Quite a trick, that. It deeply deeply
saddens me to realize it is rooted in American history and now you
believe it your privilege to treat mankind this way. Is it any wonder
#MeToo, racial profiling, gun control, and immigrant detention have
taken on epic proportions to rise to the status of movement. Civil
unrest. This unhinged, self serving behavior is conducted with abandon,
believing yourselves answerable to no one. So, so wrong. Our faith in
those appointed to our protections is no more as they continue to
demonstrate their allegiances can be bought. Have you gained nothing by
observing our Millennials who, through their depression and withdrawal
from mainstream, are evidence they feel the weight of your failure too.
Shame on you.

Make a stronger rule that closes the loophole. Americans deserve peace
of mind about their financial security.


Miss J. Evon Williams
