Only flying the Mexican flag

Recently, one of the office plazas in my town stopped flying the American flag, and replaced it with a Mexican flag.


Thoughts?

I don't think a government should fly any country's flag but their own.   Private businesses or homes can do whatever they wish.

Not a smart move, but they can do what they want

 That's odd, are they celebrating something?  I don't guess you would know, but it's weird.  IMO

I don't care if they do. It's their choice, I guess. It doesn't really bother me.

I say both or neither.     My father (as well as myself) are 100% mexican descent and he would get so angry when Oscar de la Hoya would wave around the Mexican flag after winning a boxing match.  You were born here and  you have acheived what youhave because of that. Wave the American flag.
