Can't stand to see flags from other countries on people's lawn
Just a vent post, I guess.

A few houses down, the neighbors put a big Mexican flag up on their front lawn. A couple blocks away, theres a house with a Polish flag on their front lawn.

I feel this goes beyond paying respect for your country of origin. If you are an United States citizen, and you want to hang up a flag, maybe pay respect to your real home country - the one you currently live in, work in, and have oppurtunites in.

I don't mean to sound like I worship the American flag or anything. It just fits in America, after all we are on American soil. The other flags just don't "fit".

I understand there are occasions to wave another country's flag. Polish Constitution Day, Mexican Inderpendence Day, you see a lot of flags put up to pay support. Or even on the grounds of heritage cultural centers. Thats fine.

Just bothers me to see a Mexican flag up down the street and it looks like a permanent fixture. We aren't in fucking Mexico!

Nationalism is for stupid sheeple. If you fly a flag it shows your brainwashing has been effective.

What do you do if someone speaks a foreign language in your neighborhood?

Or wears a shirt from Mexico?

Or buys a product from China?

What do you do then mate?

There is nothing to be ashamed of where you come from but one must realize at the same time where you are at.

flying ones nationality flag is cool but while livng in the good ole USA the Stars and Bars should be flown on top of said nationality flag.

Tis just a matter of respect and acknowledgement.

That's fucking fine. That has nothing to do with what I even said.

As far as language goes, thats a whole other argument. We don't technically have an official language. And there is enough to accomodate foreign speaking individuals in government offices and medical facilities. My view on that is, if you come here and don't know the language - Good luck.


Buy shit from wherever the hell you want, most of our American flags come from China probably.

The point I'm trying to make is How could a person be so proud of their country of origin, so much so that they fly that flag, and yet they live in this one..

If your visiting the US on your own dime, then it's perfectly appropriate to display your flag on your property, while you are here.

If your an illegal alien who is using government benefits, while demanding that we give you American citizenship, then you should not be proudly flying the flag of Mexico on your lawn in the US.

Go back to your own country and fly your flag!!!!!!!!!!

People can do whatever they want. I wouldn't want to see them ban such a thing, your conclusion about me believing such a thing is an error. All I said was that I don't like it. It makes me uncomfortable. Is that so wrong???

Not going to petition the local government to make an ordinance or anything.
