America’s anger epidemic: why?

November 22, 2013

Some are describing this as “America’s anger  epidemic.” And there are a few reasons: uncertainty in the job market and the  economy, working long hours — on average about one month more now than they did  in the 1970s and with less vacation.

So if it seems like Americans are angrier these days  it’s because we are.

What has you seeing red? Maybe it’s the traffic or  the ups and downs of the stock market. For one guy seen on a viral video, he  threw a tantrum over a city street trombone player. I guess he didn’t like the  tune.

And of course, there are the celebrity meltdowns,  like Alec Baldwin’s epic fail last week when he blew up at Fox 5 reporter Linda Schmidt.

Singer Chris Brown was also just ordered to spend  three months in rehab after reading he threw a rock through his own mother’s car  window.

Dr. Sudeepta Varma, a psychiatrist, said it is not  all a coincidence. Americans really are angrier now than they’ve ever been  before.

A recent study from the USA Today found 60 percent  of Americans report feeling angry or irritable. That is up from 50 percent when  a similar poll was taken in 2011.

    We are not just angry over jobs and the stupid stock market which is manipulated by the US Government and the Federal Reserve. We are angry because it is becoming painfully obvious that the government no longer listens to the people and are now openly and without hesitation violating our rights as per the US Constitution.
