How Much Safer Do You Feel?

I know that you must have felt safer last week when the TSA confiscated my purple Sharpie at the Madison airport. But, how much safer does this make you feel?
More than 30,000 airline passengers have asked just one agency — the
Transportation Security Administration — to have their names cleared from the
lists, according to the Government Accountability report.

Or this?
He said an agreement reached Friday between the U.S. and the European would
help prevent people from being misidentified. The agreement calls for airlines
to submit 34 pieces of data — including names, addresses and credit card details
— about passengers flying from Europe to the United States.
Even if you're comfortable giving up your liberty, are you willing to trust this administration with your credit card info?
