"Fix It All Today!" is a handy acronym.
Today the CEO sent a memo out declaring that we need to fix our data, as if the seas part by the will of her executive fiat.

Italys largest car producer, which makes cheap, economic cars for people who don't mind if their car gets keyed or is even in an accident. The crude engine will carry on regardless. Makes around a thousand a day in comparison to Ferrari's 0-13 per day.

Italian automotive manufacturer from Turin. Now stands alone in the Italian automotive industry, helping companies like Alfa Romeo and Lancia keep going by buying them up when on the brink of collapsing, forming what is now called the Fiat Group.
Fiat's car have traditionally had a reputation for being problematic, especially electricals. This in part is because as a nation, Italy was very poor after World War 2, and the public couldn't afford high quality cars, so quality control was almost non-existant.
The Panda in the 80s was a very popular little runaround, and was the real definition of a city car with its ultra low running costs.
After many years of constant jokes against the all round quality, as of mid 2000's, motoring experts are starting to warm more towards Fiat's cars. Now Fiat hopes to convince the public.
Driving a 1970's Fiat 128 is a fun game, because you cannot possibly predict what will go wrong next. The wipers could pack up, the engine could die or a panel might come loose.

Used in debate, it's a process by which you can just assume that a plan gets passed by congress and such, so that you can debate the benifits of the plan, not just congress shit.

Also is abused, debaters will claim fiat for anything that they can't prove will happen.
Well what proof do you have that the UN will create and RRF?

We fiat the UN.
