Maybe it's hard to say.
Also a lot of people inherit money and just blow it all too.
Looks like even back in the early 90s Kris Jenner was spending a lot of money.
Of course Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn) had his own wealth too.

Caitlyn worth $100million now estimated
Some speculation she could be worth $500million in the future.....which sounds hard to believe..but who knows

Armenian is actually a nationality as is American. That is exactly what the problem is. They are promoting another country within our country not a race, religion or ethnicity

Another example of being rich makes it easy to be richer. I'm not saying they're not rich, I'm saying it wasn't their own talent that made them where they are today

The US is not at war with Armenia. The US enjoys good relations with Armenia. You're making it sound like people are flying North Korean flags.

So yes, America really has always been a melting pot since before it was an independent nation.
A study of history reveals how there has always been a tension between those whose family lines have been here a while versus the newer arrivals, especially when the newly-arriving ethnicities introduce a new element to the population. The Irish went through a most hated status.. the Italians went through it... southeast Europeans... etc... & now it's Hispanics.
It's not the government shoving/jamming anything but rather it's the reality of what we are as a people.

OP you may be happy to know that a plane was flying the Turkish flag over the protests on April 24.

I saw an Armenian flag flying in a strip mall parking lot yesterday.

It could be a fun game to play in the car with kids.
Spot the Armenian flag.
They do get creative with it. I've seen some that put the flag design wrapped around their sideview mirrors and stuff like that.

I dont understand what the issue is?
I see flags from all over the world being displayed in various forums on a daily basis. I see flags from Colombia and Venezuela and Cuba a lot in Miami. I also see Puerto Rican flags (technically American, I know, but culturally it's its own thing)... I see british flags, Italian flag, Irish flags, etc... I see no issue with someone flying other flags besides American flags.

The basic reasons people come to the USA are either
- the old country was great but there is more money to be made here
- the old country became too dangerous

Thus, the basic reasons people like to fly the flag of the old country
- even though I make more money here, I miss my homeland
- or, I grieve for the loss what my homeland was before it became dangerous

Neither of those things are really worrying.

Sometime flags really are dangerous if they mean things like "our group only, you're not allowed" or "we hate you and will kill you if you enter our territory", but, that isn't what's going on here.
