God, Country, and Cityville

Let's return to our imaginary town of Cityville.

Club Cityville (C2) is a very active member of the community. The food shelf and other charitable programs are funded through dues, as well as the generosity of local businesses. Most of the local business owners have at one time been in a leadership position with C2, although it is not a chamber of commerce or country club. Membership is generally open to anyone.

Club Cityville sponsors some activities that might seem old fashioned. There are C2 men's and women's groups, with the occasional father/son and mother/daughter events. C2 is also not shy about patriotism or religion. The pledge of allegience often takes a prominent role at C2 functions, as does a non-sectarian prayer.

C2 is not a single issue group. It would best be described as a membership organization that promotes what it believes is best for the community through its various activities.

To be continued....

I'm forming a group in cityville of miscreants, knaves, liars, crooks, cheats and alcoholics. We're going to stand up for the little guy when we're not too huffed up on drugs. We're going to spend our free time listening to music and playing sports involving frisbees. Whenever possible, we're going to accuse C2 of being dumb hicks who don't understand the failings of capitalism. I'm going to lead this group, called "Liberals Or Something Else Revolting Swani" or "LoSERS" for short. I do this because I'll be busy getting rich taking from the union member's retirement pension.
