I don't have a

problem with others waving both at once, or celebrating their countries independence / what ever cultural holiday they celebrate. It just pisses me off when they sell their flags on the side of the street, at intersections etc on July 4th.

Kind of like a Jehovah trying to sell their Bible to a Christian on Christmas, it's just ignorant. Sure, if I didn't care for cinco de mayo I wouldn't have to go to the parade, but it is different when you are driving through your city on July 4th far from any parade and people are selling other countries flags. It is just disrespectful.

Would it be fine if somebody in Mexico went on the streets trying to sell American flags on May 5th? I think those who tried might get hurt. Same goes if somebody tried selling an American flag in Italy on the 2nd of June.
