We have a dependency culture from top to toe. Forty-five million Americans are on food stamps. The “public servants” manning the government that hands out the food stamps are themselves on Vegas hot-tub stamps, beach-resort stamps, Colombian hooker stamps, third-of-a-century retirement stamps . . .
A few more years of this, and it won’t be necessary to go to Cartagena: It’ll be Latin America at home, too.
