    Uh-Oh. So he really is The Specialist but the only reason he throws it around is no one else knows how meaningless the title is.

    Yep, pretty much like when Roseanne Barr used to refer to herself as a "domestic engineer" instead of a housewife. Except she was trying to be funny.

    Wasn't she a "domestic goddess"? They rank much higher than engineers.

    You're right AZChristian. How could I have forgotten? She earned that promotion by putting up with that idiot Tom Arnold for so many years, right?

    Here is a little more.

    Only the lowest specialist grade survives today, as the higher grades were gradually phased out. Specialist 8 and Specialist 9, were eliminated in 1968.[4] Specialist 7 was abolished in 1978 and Specialist 5 and Specialist 6 in 1985. At that time, the rank of Specialist 4 simply became known as "Specialist,"
    Also ... Phillip and his brother have written a recently published book titled "The Specialist" ... so some of this is for publicity.

    OK, that does it! I'm through with this turd. I could accept him as a completely delusional nutcase. But I wrongly assumed some purity of thought. Now it's just grating arrogance and self-promotion. I want him blindsided right now!!! (Where is a really pissed off smiley when you need one...)

    He likes to use 'Specialist' because he thinks it sounds impressive and he knows that most people don't know what it is, and will not bother to look it up.

    Idiot. Moron.

    Good for him. And all the others think he's the fool. Meanwhile, he's laughing all the way to the bank.

    Lots of people make money doing idiotic things. Doesn't mean they aren't fools.
