**Not meant to be taken as a political post at all, just a completely made up scenario that has no relevance to anything Americans are facing today!**
My wonderful hometown is Chico, California - and it is well-known for being a strong, exemplary town in the state, for being the town of the free,
and for its diversity and mix of citizens from all walks of life.
Unfortunately, as of recently there have been a few people, all with names starting with A-D, that have committed unlawful acts such as robbing the local liquor store,
shooting a random citizen at the post office, and even bombing our town’s elementary school.
It must be restated that not all town-goers with names starting with A-D have committed unlawful acts, in fact, only a few have.
However, it is matter-of-fact that people have started to become suspicious of all the A-D named people, such as the Adrians, Christinas, Brians, Davids, Cassandras, Alexs,
and even some Karens as some are mistaken Karen always starts with a C.
This past month, a new mayor has come to power. He was an unlikely candidate, but after all we did not have any candidate who appeared qualified or fit for the job.
(Except early in the race the beloved town old-man had shown his desire to be mayor before being forced-out of running by that one lady who is involved in everything but no one really likes.
) The new mayor has some strong support in the town, many believing he will Make Chico Great Again.
Unfortunately, it seems to be only a week into his term and our town seems to be as divided as ever.
He also has spent way too much of his time writing on the town announcement board, all of it being strange attacks at anybody that appears to contradict or question his actions!
But this last weekend he may have taken the most bizarre action of all.
He enacted a town ordinance that no persons with the name A-D will be allowed to come back into or visit our town!
Many have been here for years (even decades) and have helped our town become what it is today.
There are bad people who have names starting with all letters, most of the A-D’s really are good people!
What is scary is the effect this ordinance will have on our future relationships with the A-D’s.
Most of them have lived upstanding, virtuous lives and are now being outcasted just for being similar to some bad apples.
Analysts are worried this ordinance will create more bad apples,
as it may help the actual bad ones recruit and radicalize many A-D’s that would have never thought about opposing Chico in the first place.
It appears the mayor is trying to make relations incredibly worse with a group of people that are potentially dangerous,
but only if we incite and allow them to gain support and further reason to be angry.
It’s going to be a long time with him in office, all I hope is Chico is still around by the time he exits office. And that someone will block him from using the damn announcement board!
