#4 As the economy crumbles, thieves are becoming bolder and more desperate. In Indiana, one desperate thief recently ripped off a car dealership by using a crane to lift up a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and load it on to a trailer.

10 Signs That The American People Are Angrier Than Ever And Record Setting Government Transfer Payments Are Not Pacifying Them

The following are 10 signs that the American people are angrier than ever....

#1 According to a brand new Fox News poll, 76 percent of all Americans are "dissatisfied with how things are going in the country". At the beginning of this year, that number was only at 61 percent.

#2 Violence in our streets continues to rise and sadly police officers are increasingly becoming targets. The number of law enforcement officials that have been killed in the United States has increased by 17 percent this year so far.

#3 Some of the crimes that we have seen recently have been absolutely shocking. Not even elementary schools are safe anymore. In the New York City area recently, one mother was killed when she tried to shield children from gunfire that erupted just outside of an elementary school. The following is an excerpt from a Washington Post article about this incident....

Someone with a gun opened fire on a street as students were let out of school Friday afternoon, killing one parent who had tried to shield children from harm and injuring an 11-year-old girl and another parent, police and school officials said.

#4 As the economy crumbles, thieves are becoming bolder and more desperate. In Indiana, one desperate thief recently ripped off a car dealership by using a crane to lift up a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and load it on to a trailer.

#5 Nothing is too big for thieves to steal these days. In the San Francisco area, thieves recently took off with a copper bell that weighs 2.7 tons.

#6 Some thieves have become so bold that they will literally steal thousands of animals at a time from ranchers. All over the United States, livestock is being stolen from ranchers in unprecedented numbers. The following is from a recent Associated Press article....

While the brazenness may be unusual, the theft isn't. High beef prices have made cattle attractive as a quick score for people struggling in the sluggish economy, and other livestock are being taken too. Six thousand lambs were stolen from a feedlot in Texas, and nearly 1,000 hogs have been stolen in recent weeks from farms in Iowa and Minnesota. The thefts add up to millions of dollars in losses for U.S. ranches.

Authorities say today's thieves are sophisticated compared to the horseback bandits of the rugged Old West. They pull up livestock trailers in the middle of the night and know how to coax the animals inside. Investigators suspect it's then a quick trip across state lines to sell the animals at auction barns.

#7 Another form of crime that is absolutely skyrocketing is identity theft. Do you know if your identity is safe? The following comes from a recent article in The Palm Beach Post....

In the first half of this year, the Federal Trade Commission received more than 20,000 complaints from Floridians whose identities had been stolen -- nearly as many as in all of 2010. More than half of those reporting their Social Security numbers or other personal information had been ripped off and used to commit fraud or theft were in South Florida, with heavy concentrations in parts of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Hallandale Beach.

"That kind of increase is really shocking,'' said Vance Luce, deputy special agent in charge of the U.S. Secret Service in South Florida, which investigates identity theft and financial crimes. "The fact that it's on the upturn doesn't surprise me at all, but that's pretty alarming.''

#8 Instead of becoming incredibly angry and frustrated, some Americans are simply giving in to depression. We still have one of the highest standards of living in the entire world, and yet a staggering number of Americans are incredibly depressed. According to a recent article by Anthony Gucciardi, more than one out of every ten Americans is currently on antidepressants.

#9 Other Americans are freely giving in to all of the anger that is building up inside of them. The reality is that a lot of Americans are so frustrated right now that even the silliest things will set them off. For example, one man down in Georgia recently firebombed a Taco Bell because they did not put enough meat in his Chalupa.

#10 But of course one of the clearest signs of rising anger and frustration in America is the Occupy Wall Street movement. These protests are a precursor to the mass economic riots that are coming to this nation.
