CARTHAGO DELENDA EST - UCO MUST BE DESTROYED
CARTHAGO DELENDA EST
At today's Delegate Assembly a unit owner, suggested that UCO President Dave Israel should "fall on his sword". This in the same breath of implying that the current state of conflict between himself and UCO was comparable in some way to the conflict between the ancient Roman Republic and the North African City State of Carthage during the Punic Wars; this person was heard to say, "Carthage must be Destroyed", no doubt some not so veiled threat to UCO! There was some mention of a threatened law suit, though this was not specified in any detail. Some comparison; talk about apples to watermelons!
Precisely what this "war" is about is not clear; there is endless re-hashing about paving and drainage contracts, invoices, monies in various categories; but very few accurate specifics as to the issues. Again as the disruption escalated, and as additional performers come to the microphone, Delegates simply walked out in disgust with the ongoing kabuki as they had at last month's Delegate Assembly which was disrupted by the same dramatis personae, and which was introduce at the Executive Board meeting a few days earlier by other actors performing act one, the financial panic mongering act; the performance was simply a repeat of earlier and numerous rehearsed meeting disruptions.-
It is recorded that, Roman Senator Cato the elder, ended every speech he made before the Roman Senate with the Phrase "Carthago Delenda Est" (Carthage must be destroyed.) Is this what all of you law suit advocates have in mind for UCO; simply charming; simply brilliant! Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. Don't permit a few malcontents to drag the Village into a divisive litigation.
