'Free Market' my flaccid floozie-flogger!

"SEC extends short selling curb through August 12"
(REUTERS): "U.S. securities regulators have extended through August 12 an emergency rule aimed at curbing abusive short selling in the stocks of 19 major financial firms, including mortgage giants Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

"The Securities and Exchange Commission rule is part of an agency crackdown on possible market manipulation that some blame for steep declines in the shares of financial companies."

They'll pull the curbs right in the middle of the Olympics, hoping no one will notice if the market descendeth into hell never to rise again from the dead.
