Its criminal that regulators have such control with absolute power to abuse. Regulation have only one purpose: POWER. Unfortunately I am in the middle of federal regulations and never experience anything productive. Regulators have the power to control and kill opportunities for political foe and will grant exceptions for their allies. I can give up a long list of real life examples. Our friend who say sell and move on simplifies a bunch. Where do you invest in MF Global like investment companies or mining companies in South American, Mexico? If you can not invest in the US with confidence then we don't have a real country.
