    and I gotta say I think its great.  Of course with Britain, that means both EU and Commonwealth.

    My main reason for doing it was in case of a stupid war, and the draft.  Growing up, I figured that if both the US and UK decided to fight a war, it was likely that it was a war I would actually be willing to fight...but then someone gave Tony Blair stupid pills and they joined the "Coalition of the Sycophants" and fought in Iraq.

    At this point, the dual citizenship means that I can go through the faster EU lines when I go to Europe.

      and my sister, if she came back) to a different and much faster line at the airport. I love the looks and smiles I get! Such fun.

      Having UK citizenship is fantastic. Jealous.

      I do want to be a Filipina by nationality, I am lucky that I have he option. I really should start the process. My parents were considered dissidents and dissident collaborators, but I think they would be glad to have me. I hope!
