FIAT: noun, an arbitrary decree or pronouncement, esp. by a person or group of persons having absolute authority to enforce it: The king ruled by fiat.

FIAT MONEY: noun, irredeemable paper currency, not resting on a specie basis, but deriving its purchasing power from the declaratory fiat of the government issuing it.

[Both definitions from dictionary.com.]

Chrysler gets go-ahead for Fiat rescue

US President Barack Obama said Chrysler had "a new lease on life" as a result of a substantial commitment by the US Government and "sacrifices from all stakeholders involved".

[Update:] nonhocapito weighs in:

We all remember when recently Obama asked for a FIAT-CHRYSLER partnership as a pre-requisite to help CHRYSLER. Many wondered why that should be, since FIAT is such a small and pretty insignificant brand in the world of car-makers.

I am italian and I assure you that even from our small province this request appeared as pretty strange.

I think that the answer is in the Bilderberg attendees list, since one of the members is John Elkann, vice-chairman and major shareholder of FIAT (while a FORMER member was the CEO of Damien Chrysler).

You have to wonder why, the more outrageous Alex Jones' claims are, the more spot-on they seem to be.

I've always thought a Fiat Caprice would be a fun car, as the two words are similar in meaning. And it'd smell of Pizza Hut's (circa 1985) Priazzo all the time-mmmmmmm.

That Alex Jones phone-battery trick works great-the .gov isn't reading my mind anymore through my cell-phone at night, anyway.

P.S. Why is it that when I vote for "Swangin' " in you poll, the system registers "I'm Too Sexy"? I mean, hell, I'd rather vote for "Deeply Dippy" were I forced into a Right Said Fred song.
