Staying out of debt

As the Administration, enabled by the US Congress, pisses away vast sums of money that do not exist and will not exist for years to come, compare this...

The most recently issued license plates on cars in Guatemala are made of paper. I am told that President Portillo awarded the license-plate manufacturing contract in return for a bribe, and he and the contractor split the loot. Now they have no license plates and no money to make them. So they have paper license plates covered in plastic (it is really bizarre).
