As a citizen, tax-payer, investor and voter, I find it
troubling that now when the large investment banks and
brokerages are in trouble due to their own greed and
riskless business environments, you want to enforce the
already ILLEGAL practice of naked short selling. Where
were you when this practice killed the airlines, regional
banks, home builders and mining companies? Now when
your business cronies, soon to be in government, are
hurting you seek to finally enforce it? You are trans-
parent, immoral and criminal in your intent. I doubt
that you have the courage to do the right thing now
but I rest knowing that the truth will out, that
Jefferson, Jackson and the founding fathers who
made money of silver will win the day. In the meantime
I will monitor this and do what I can to see justice
meted out.
