Here is a chilling example of your tax dollars at work. Ninth Circuit Judge Alex Kozinski wrote an opinion last week denying the suit of a citizen who claimed to have been drugged with LSD as part of a CIA experiment.
The Plaintiff filed his lawsuit claiming that, in 1957, the CIA drugged him without his permission, by putting LSD in his bourbon and soda. The CIA admits it carried on drug experiments, but denied that this guy was one of them. Next time someone from the government says "I'm from the Government, I'm here to help you", don't let him buy you a drink.
