    Kulaks raising their banners high

    Kulaks raising their banners high

    It’s not just Ray Gaster who is raising the “I built this” banner.

    Readers have forwarded photos they just took of other businesses with similar signage.

    From Sara:

    Hi @Legal Insurrection. Here’s what a sign business in Boca Raton, Florida is prominently displaying.

    Eight minutes ago in 91-degree post-Isaac sunshine.

    From Sara, a Friend of the Blog

    And this one from Griff taken a couple of days ago outside an auto body shop in Houston:

    This auto body shop in NW Houston always has something entertaining on their marquee.

    Love your blog.

    I warned you about these kulaks, didn’t I?

    Update 8-30-2012: Reader Nancy writes:

    I took a photo of this sign at a family owned jewelry store in Prescott, Arizona.

    Please add it to your collection if you like.

    Keep up the great work!

    The Kulaks were plowed under by tractors (sometimes literally),
    because Stalin no longer needed their manpower.

    ‘Yeomanry’ works well, but doesn’t have the’kulak’ frame wherein “you didn’t build that!” means “you don’t have a right to that!” means “property is theft!” means “you are a criminal!” means “you’ve been warned!” means “you’re living on borrowed time!”
