Funny you would say that, because it's pretty much ALWAYS a conservative who whines about Mexican (or any Latin American or Middle Eastern) flags being flown publicly. Guess the rules change when we're talking about the Irish, huh?

Flying an Irish flag by an "Irish" pub is Ok with me. Flying a Mexican flag by a Mexican food place is good too and I ain't a liberal.
