So much for the short constraints.

Oil Surges; Stocks, Dollar Decline

Crude-oil futures surged more than $25 a barrel as the dollar slid and Treasurys declined amid a flight out of U.S. assets. The Dow industrials fell 200 points.

I suggest:

1) Stop shorting on all stocks.

2) Create an uptick rule for buying, too.

3) Free tour of SEC HQ for anyone who shorts oil like crazy.

4) Uptick rule for residential housing sales.

5) Renters forced to buy homes for the good of the country and economy.

6) Citizens to be thrown in jail for questioning whether or not bailout is the right thing to do.

7) No one allowed to use words "pig" and "lipstick" within same paragraph.

8) Bill Ackman to be locked in a cage hanging from front of SEC HQ.

9) Free bowl of soup to first 1,000,000 people to open a new "penny-saver extreme" passbook account at 0.32% APY with Goldman Sachs

10) Implantable chip that repeats the message "We'll be buying mortgages for 50 cents on the dollar... Think of the profits!" to be embedded in every 3rd U.S. citizen.

I was about to be mad, but then I realized you were being facetious ... like I said, I'm a little lacking in understanding of subtlety.

Funny :) I was thinking along the same lines: "Why don't they allow losses to be called profits?", "Why don't they buy all homes for sale, and then, with no competition, list them 30% higher?"
