Dear Chairwoman Schapiro,

Please stop abusive NAKED SHORT SELLING (FTD) and reinstate the uptick rule, this is the least you can do and should be a no brainier.

"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts."
Abraham Lincoln

"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it."
Abraham Lincoln

"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."
Abraham Lincoln

"You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today."
Abraham Lincoln

Any questions?
