Yes another ..9/11..Question....Do you feel safer since they have security everywhere since 9/11 of 2001 ???...I think they have stopped some attacks and I do feel more safe,but at the same time,the country has spent alot of money on security...a lot of money...along with two wars...That was there goal to bankrupt this country...and their doing a hell of a job at it......I hope things get better fast,with all the people out of work and everything else...Floods-Wildfires-Tornadoes-Earthquakes...This doe's seem like the end of the world sometimes....What do you think ???...Just wondering ???.......

Safer from terrorist threats? I suppose so, especially since osalami bin ladin is dead, but i wonder about his buddies.

I feel much less safe from my own government. Everytime the TSA screener feels up a grandma, the terrorists win a little more, IMO. It is just nonsensible; i mean, the great door of our southern border is WIDE the eff open, but good luck getting on a plain if you so much as fart wrong.

$$$$ spent does not equal security nor safety.

Do I feel safe? Hell no! Do I feel safer? See previous answer.

I truly question the airport security. I've (accidentally) gotten through with knives and spent casings that should have been covered in GSR. But every time I want to take an energy drink through, one thats still sealed, they're all "NOOOO, it might be a bomb. One that is made out of a non volatile liquid with no apparent source of ignition, in a container that would be counter productive to any source of flame."

I don't feel safer. If the government were profiling extremist Muslims of all races that would make me feel safer. If the airlines would approach airline safety like El Al Airlines in Israel does that would make me feel safer. When they stop taking away my nail clippers when I get on an airplane I may get on a plane again. Until then I am driving, locked and loaded.

ya sure I feel safe about as a safe as a deer during deer season, there taking extra steps to make sure that terrorist attacks don't happen "as much". But still some of us have a better chance of getting shot walking out the door in the morning.

My brother also accidentally got through with a knife...he didn't realize he had left it in his backpack until afterwards. And this was after 09/11.

I would like to believe we are more safe, but the reality is that many Americans are still very vulnerable on so many levels. Why sink so much money and effort into security and then allow anyone to run across our southern border?

Safer is a relative term. I feel safer because I'm better armed and more practiced with the firearms I've acquired over the years. I feel safer because of the training I've put myself through. But overall, for the country, I don't think safety is the concern of any of our politicians. They're too damned busy being oh so politically correct so they don't offend anyone. For example, they're not illegal aliens, they're "undocumented workers." It's not caused by terrorism, it's a "man-caused incident."

Safer? Personally, yes. For the country? Not just no, HELL NO!
