Subject: up tick rule S7-25-08

September 23, 2008


I am an average business owner who desires to express my concerns and disgust with the lack of SEC oversight specifically regarding short selling and the up-tick rule. I have watched a greedy, careless and seemingly unregulated Wall Street essentially bring the financial foundation of this country to our knees for the benefit of a few.

For the country’s sake, do your job, regulate the financial markets for the benefit of all Americans. Stop bailing out bad company’s at my expense, let them fail or be bought out. If they possess any talent or have a demand in our economy they will reemerge.

Act in my best interest for the sake of the people you agreed to serve and protect.

Kindest Regards;
