I respectfully request you keep your goddamned hands off REITS and particularly the mortgage REITS. I have a substantial portion of my wife's and my retirement account in this class of stock. As a small investor with a relatively modest retirement portfolio, the safety of the dividends in these companies allow me to sleep at night -- especially in this chaotic market.

What the hell are you doing? Are you trying to turn me into a Republican?

Stop this nonsense
