Customer rage is on the rise in an era of massive poverty

More Americans than ever have been so unhappy with customer service at many retail businesses that customer rage has been on the rise. It is clear economic hard times for years for many Americans, while insiders on Wall Street associated with high tech firms are making billions of dollars in a flash on new issues, has been setting the stage for these frustrations and rages. Money News reported on Dec. 10, 2013, that customer rage in dealing with poor customer service has been on the rise.

A national survey taken by the University of Arizona’s W.P Carey School of Business has found that the number of households saying that they were very or extremely upset with the responses they got to complaints about customer service has been going up. It's a sad scene to see a country where one guy in Hollywood is out for the afternoon on a new yatch worth millions of dollars with his family, while another just as well educated and capable guy with a family to care for on the east coast is worried his American Express card may bounce while he is bargain shopping at Walmart for Christmas, at the same time his food stamp benefits are running low and his kids are hungry.

This all gets even more depressing when we see poor families being placed under surveillance and locked up in jails and mental hospital concentration camps across the country because they contacted the wealthy families on Facebook to actually beg for help before they starve to death in the streets of a nation where the American dream died hard and fast for most of the people a long, long time ago. reported that the new rage survey shows worried consumers have had enough. Many Americans are unhappy, frustrated and angry consumers these days. The Arizona State University survey shows more Americans than ever are not happy with the products and services they buy. Many times associated customer rage is demonstrated by yelling and cursing at customer-service representatives.

A primary explanation for this customer rage is clearly that far too many Americans are simply being squeezed too hard over money and are worried about being pushed into homelessness along with millions of other homeless Americans. There has not been a fair and equitable distribution of wealth and power in the nation since its founding, and things are simply getting worse by the day in this era. Where this may all end is anybody's guess, with good employees being fired because of financially stressed out customers, and than joining the list of enraged customers.

The American people should vote all of the Democrats and Republicans out of office and try an experiment with the Libertarian Party, Green Party and Constitution Party in the coming elections. Failed leadership under the Democrats and Republicans has been leading in the disasterous directions we are now experiencing for far too long for far too many Americans.
