ALIENWARE A CRIMINAL COMPANYmore...
I purchased an Alienware area 51-M 766 Laptop on 05/12/2004 and I paid three thousand dollars for it. It was advertised as a laptop with an upgradeable video card and it was considered to be the top of the line gaming notebook and had with some fantastic reviews winning numerous awards and gained a great deal of recognition from industry professionals and technology experts. The laptop should last many years and the main idea is the video card could be changed or upgraded. I thought I bought the best notebook on the market, but I was sadly mistaken. After a year and half, I called Alienware so I could purchase a new upgraded video card, and I was told that Alienware stop supporting my laptop and my video card. I was also told that I have to purchase a video card from a third party called “Uniwill” if I wanted an upgrade. So I called the third party company but no one picked up the phone and I left several messages and they never called me back. I was very surprised that I was unable to get an upgradeable video card. I was also very disappointed to find that so soon I was unable to get what was so strongly advertised and promised. If this isn’t false advertising and false promises made to customers then I don’t know what else is but afterwards I gave up calling and continue to use the notebook. I never thought I would have trouble with it but on November 23, 2007 the video card completely burned out. I contacted Alienware shortly afterwards t...
When you are lying in bed with a guy/girl after sex, and make all kinds of plans to go out, and be together in the future. Knowing it's never really gonna happen, it just sounds like a nice thing to say at the time.
This also sounds like a great name for an Emo Band!
I thought we were gonna hang out this weekend, but it turns out it was just pillow-talk promises.
|3.||Senator John Kerry|
One who misleads voters by delivering promises that are next to impossible to keep because Americans are too stupid to realize how these promises really "work" SEE: Watch the debates and read the papers for both sides of the story dumbass AND: There are two sides stop believing the one that SOUNDS the best withought knowing info.
Statement or Promise: Healthcare for everyone, the same as the Senators get.
Reality: Despite everyone thought, depending on the income of the Senator or person in question, The GOVERNMENT will choose a program best SUITED to your income. Sure, it will be Blue Cross, but nothing was said about transplants or hospitalization being covered...sorry, you must not make enough.
Statement: Minimum wage higher for everyone especially women
Reality: Taxes will be raised, although I hate the upperclass, there is not nearly enough of them to tax to cover my promise on this one, therefor, sorry middle and lower class, more taxes for you too.
Statement: I will bring our boys home
Reality: As soon as i take credit for what is going on overseas, and I make the other promises I made come true, Then I will bring home half.
A commitment to deliver (a service, funding, an item) that is subsequently set aside. The broken promise is then explained with the glib expression "oh, but that promise was non-core".
Now generalised to non-political situations, too.
Origin: Australian federal elections at the turn of the 20th/21st centuries. The conservative party (known as the Liberal/National coalition) made a number of election promises which were broken soon after the election. The prime minister, John Howard, attempted to explain this behaviour by claiming that some promises are "core" and some are "non-core" and thus, don't count.
Not only did "No tax increases, no new taxes" turn out to be a non-core promise, but in the campaign, Howard had also given a solemn undertaking that "I'm not going to break any promises". That one was certainly non-core.

Excerpt from National Nine News (network TV) 12 May 2005

An election promise that you have gone back on after the election is over. It is important not to define what promises are core and what are non-core before the election itself.
After winning the 1996 Australian Federal election John Howard slashed spending on Education, Health, Social Welfare blaming a budget deficit left by the previous government. When it was pointed out that he had promised not to cut spending on these areas as part of his election platform and that he had lied, he claimed that these were "non-core promises"

Like an Indian Giver, except when you haven't been given anything. Someone makes a deal and then breaks the deal later.
Someone who makes artificial promises to get their way.
Hey we will get some Publix Subs for lunch today instead of Panda Express. To make up for it, we will get some Panda Express on Monday AND Tuesday.
Monday rolls around and no Panda Express.
INDIAN DEAL BREAKER!

The 90 year old retiree excitedly woke up for the first time in 20 years with an erection, but in the end, he was handed only empty promises.
