Where is Cox?

The short selling hedge funds are employing the strategy of pushing out of business financial companies. Cox (by allowing naked short selling and removing an uptick rule) and Paulson (by making sure that the shareholders do not get anything at the end) are only helping the bears.

The hedge funds are exploiting distressed credit markets to bankrupt our financial system.

Attack a financial company with heavy naked shorting and create a panic => credit spreads widen => boneheads from the credit agencies issue immediate credit downgrades => these rating downgrades force a company to immediately (no time to sell assets) increase collateral => a company cannot borrows because the credit markets are frozen => more short selling and forcing a company into bankruptcy => Paulson comes out and makes sure that the shorts are rewarded and the shareholders are wiped-out

This chain reaction must be broken.
