U.S. Citizenship - About darn time!

I moved here when I was 4 and I've had a greencard as long as I can recall. This past Tuesday I was sworn in as a U.S. Citizen.

This is a HUGE day for me.

1) If I die Uncle Sam can't take 50% immediately just for being a foreigner. Apparently there are HUGE tax implications for wealthy foreigners dying here. 50% * $0 = $0, right? LOL Nonetheless, I am not some wealthy foreigner....

2) I can't be sent back to Canada, where I was born. I hate the cold and enjoy the warmth. I'll take a Texas summer over a Canadian winter anytime :)
