Mad Money's Cramer Blames Monday's Stock Market Slide on EuropeJim Cramer, host of CNBC's Mad Money, appeared on Today to discuss Monday's stock market slide with Matt Lauer. Asked what Wall Street was really reacting to, Cramer rejected the notion that the supercommittee's failure was a major factor, telling Lauer, "It's all Europe." Watch Cramer talk about why the supercommittee is just a whipping boy for Wall Street's troubles, how much larger Europe's problems are than what this country faced in 2008, and what advice he'd give to investors worried about trans-Atlantic contagion:

Perhaps Cramer can tell us where the highly educated,Professorial & ivy league types, thought there tax base would come from? Multimillionaire Congressmen and women, are nothing but GRABALLS - they choose to take a Salary + Every Perk - & - LOOPHOLE, they can put their hands on + Engage in INSIDER TRADING - While putting people, such as Martha Stewart in JAIL, For Doing The Very Same Thing!

The New World Order wants to make us a third world country. They are well on their way.

Anyone that believes that the European debt crisis is short term, and that it will not affect our already sickly economy long term, is naive. We are seeing only the tip of the iceberg! Europe has a slow, unresponsive financial management structure, built on a loose union, that will prove incapable of responding quickly to today's fiscal policy demands. We will either see the Euro dismantled, or, Europe move toward a federal model (with major pain in the process). The markets will suffer without doubt; worldwide.

Apparently Cramer is no smarter or has no more integrity than all the other morons, who apparently are fixated
on Europe to deviate attention from the not so minor problems we face here in the US. He might be right about
the so-called super committee - everybody should have known from the very beginning that they were going
to fail - but that does not miraculously make our huge debt and our crumbling infra-structure go away.

There are just a few people in the world manipulating every market, every stock price, everything. There is no way for the average person to make an informed decision. Now, some people might make lucky guesses and make money, but that's all it is, a lucky guess, cause nothing makes sense anymore.

If you're risk-adverse (like me) and If you don't like your current low-risk 1% yearly gains, it might be a good idea to cash everything out, buy or pay off a house, pay off all debt, and just hope you have enough money left over for health care.

That is actually a great suggestion. We need to start over and focus on sustainability. Running out and charging more crap (mostly from China) is going to put us right back where we were. I think GWB should be thrown in jsil for what he did or allowed to happen
