Yep, it's our fault. I admit it. It has absolutely nothing to do with anything that has ever come out of Washington. God forbid. It's all of us wasteful, good-for-nothing traders. Reinstate the uptick rule. Price has to be 3% above the last bid in order to short. And then you can do 50 shares. Or, hell, just throw anybody in jail who shorts a stock. Or even thinks about it. By God, it's just anti-American to do anything other than buy and hold. If Washington says we're coming back...then who the heck are you to question them?
