Please bring back the uptick rule

Why would you allow someone to destroy what the American public uses for future retirement, or would if they felt comfortable with the one-sided game? When you work and cannot short daily with these guys, it is simple they make money and you do not. You are so easily convinced if you believe those very smart short traders are being honest with you. Just take a look at thier portfolio and then mine.
