In the words of a famous soothsayer Jenny, from Forest Gump, Run Forest Run! Seriously Thought, I stayed to long in a similar scenario my health suffered physically and emotionally.

You need to get the hell out of Dodge City before someone comes "gunnin'" for you.
Face it, nobody besides you either really cares or has the smarts to do the right thing or things where you are currently located.
I believe it's safe to say that those of us with a long work history probably have our own one or more hell-environments that made us a bit stronger (and surely gave us lots to talk about at the next place). So you're not alone. Small consolation, though.

But in the end, this IS messing up your emotional health (and don't deny it), and if you remain where you can't fix anything about it, the stress will soon work on your physical health and psychological well-being. One former employee at my company (in the purchasing department and who knew far and away more than his arrogant and manipulative Asian manager) was told by his own doctor to either leave or expect a heart attack within a year. He left, found a job with a similar company and is now much happier.

It's easy for certain readers here to say, "Just ignore it, buck up and and take it." THEY don't have your physical, emotional and psychological make-up. Everybody has a breaking point, and based on how you're now feeling like General Custer at Little Big Horn, you're about to reach yours.
