    Great, so everyone can move into the same several-dozen communities with the best schools. Nope, no problems there.

    I rose in the ranks because I took on anything and everything I could, job-wise. Companies started valuing me for my experience.

    Also worth noting;

    In my area of expertise, an MS cert is a joke.

    It's not like an exclusive club that barrs certain people from entering.

    If I were to let my imagination take flight I'd guess that people with attitudes like yours are actually quite envious of the rich and just haven't come to terms with their envy.

    My education was, as public education goes, actually quite good. I was fortunate enough to come out of a vagina that happened to live in a fairly high real estate value community. But I've also seen and worked in plenty of communities whose schools were so abysmal that their students' advantages could be nowhere close to mine. All because those students were stupid enough to choose the wrong vagina to be born from.

    And yes, high real estate values make it an exclusive club. If you can't afford to rent or buy property there, that's the end of that.

    Jeez Louise! What the **** is your problem with wealth and the wealthy??? You must be in heaven to have a national political campaign rise to prominence and add some dignity to what I truly believe is your secret mean little affliction regarding wealth and riches.

    so you don't have any certifications. you haven't taken any vendor courses? good for you. You are a very very rare exception.

    so your solution is a federal takeover where everyone is forced to suffer the same mediocrity?

    Only insofar as we are forced to suffer the same mediocre national military protection.
