For us, the little guy, we have seen our retirement accounts cut in half. When do we get to retire now? Oh, probably when we are about 85......

Most of us that have gotten into the market within the past 20 years have no where near the sophistication, knowledge, or funds to manipulate the market like the powerhouses that be. I think us average Joe's need a chance to recoup. Just get rid of all the short selling and be done with it. Let's all just get a fair shake and make an honest living. Do the right thing, not for the huge corporate beings, but us, the citizens of the United States who are the ones that are suffering because of greed and short sightedness. Don't fail us again, and again and again.
