as an American citizen, business owner, parent, grandmother, and investor I am begging you to right the wrongs that have been done to me and to millions of others you have pledged to protect. please stop watching this system fail and do something, anything, don't sit by and contiue to ask us if it is ok if you do your jobs, and please just do your jobs. put the uptick rule back in place now. You have been appointed by us and our elected officials to protect us and if a mistake was made removing the uptick rule, the damage has been done now it is up to you to stop the bleeding of those you have been entrusted to protect.
