I love my country, but I'll be patriotic when I am inspired to do so, thank you very much.) And the fact that there are vendors there selling tee-shirts
Interestingly, there was a sign there which encouraged visitors not to buy anything from any vendors who showed up around there, which was followed by those that I saw there.

A nice touch.
