To whom it may concern:

I have been investing for 6 years now and have served my country in the United States Air Force, I find it truly disheartening that we as a nation have allowed the Naked Shorting to get to this point. The SEC should not allow this to have gotten to this point. If you were to take a pole of how the investors confidence is in our SEC, you would find that the confidence level is extremely low. My question to you is who can the American people trust in government anymore, I thought the SEC was suppose to watch out for the investors? The coruption must stop now before the foundation of our economy crumbles. Please I'm asking you to stand up now and do the right thing for you, the investor and our future economy. We must stop it immediately, Naked Shorting must be controlled and you should be leading the charge to fix it, it is your job and my taxes for that protection.
