No need for personal stuff. Yes, regulations require you to work for someone else. They do not require that you work for bozos. Or - respectfully - are you so good that any boss would be a bozo? Or in such a restricted field that the opportunities to avoid bozo bosses is severely limited?
The regulations also do not restrict you from seeking promotion, which brings us right back to my original comment ... simply working harder is almost never a recipe for advancement.
Or you could simply move back to Canada. At least out west here, there are loads of opportunities to become a soloist. Or a chief bozo.
