To me they are worthless. I always carry where legal, and am always on alert.

I don't think they are very effective. Most sheeple could give a damn what level we're on or will be. Problem with it is that people will and are loosing interest. The threat level has changed enough times to make most people start to go to sleep. It's the old never cry wolf scenario. After enough raises to a high or severe level of threat without any actual attacks, and I think that people will quit paying attention to it (they probably already have). My gear and myself are good to go at all times.

Actually, I think it has a negative impact on the economy. The airlines in particular get slammed, especially before a upcoming holidays like this weekend. All the "evil doers" have to do is rev up the "chatter" and it costs the economy billions. My IRA has reallt gotten slammed since May of 2000, and this stuff makes it worse. I do think warning should go out to law enforcement, but I really wonder if they do anything different except in high risk areas like New York and DC. Frankly, I wish they would drop the whole warning thing except for those in the position to do anythoing about it, and tell us "regular folks" to always be prepared, whether from a mugger or a terrorists. A national Must Issue CCW would be first on my list.
