Subject: naked short sales

August 19, 2008

I will no longer trade stocks because of this type of rule, or should I say - because of the selective application of this type of rule.

Why isn't this principle applied to every other stock? Or to commodity contracts?

If you want a sure-fire way to destroy confidence in all markets, this 19-bank only approach is the way to do it. Why do a select few investment banks and their owners receive this type of protection?

It smacks of special treatment for the rich, and it is truly disgusting.
