Further, I knew that my Democrat superiors would advise me to do things that I would not do, namely, become a Democrat, help them get rid of their employees who shared my demographics, promote the Democrat Party platform, promote political affiliation discrimination, promote reverse discrimination, promote age discrimination, etc. Instead, I took my own advice and earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.
