I have always paid for my stock purchases and am proud to own the shares that I trade. I feel that everyone should have to have "some skin in the game" for it to be a fair game.

In this age of computers and terrorists, it is probable that our nation's enemies are attempting to destroy the United States thorugh its financial system.

Naked shorting should not be allowed, America is experiencing enough financial pressures as it is.

Help older Americans keep their retirement savings that have been invested in the marketplace, STOP the practice of NAKED SHORTING.
