National Pancake? WHAT THE HELL WAS WRONG WITH WAFFLES, YOU BASTARDS?!!

Waffles are for leftists.

The insatiable demand for streaming content has choked US networks, causing internet service providers (ISPs) to attempt to spread the cost of upgraded service to content providers like Netflix

And when they say "choked US networks", they really mean "allowed a few large carriers to engage in extortion".

Pretty much.

At the International House of Pancakes? I think not. It's time we stop letting foreigners like Obama dictate our national breakfast menu.

Given the teabagger influence these days, you'd think potato pancakes would be an easy sell.

Every good patriot knows that the true Freedom Waffles are only served at The Waffle House and that biatch better be smothered and covered, you commie bastard.

A fair concern, when medical science has yet to find a cure for pancakes.

Yes.  They're more of a Sean Hannity pancake.  Thin skinned and full of it.

Team pancakes!

But only with real maple syrup.

No one ever takes Wheatcakes seriously!

While maple syrup is acceptable, real  honey is superior to maple syrup.

While honey is good, it doesn't belong on pancakes. Real maple syrup belongs in them. Hint: if it says pancake syrup it's fake.

47 is the new 42: While honey is good, it doesn't belong on pancakes. Real maple syrup belongs in them. Hint: if it says pancake syrup it's fake.


I am quite aware of the difference between brown corn syrup and maple syrup. I still think that the flavor of honey goes better with a big, fluffy-but-dense pancake. You're better off throwing a little maple sugar into the batter, if you want the maple flavor.

Right wingers, can we talk frankly?

It's one thing when you had a difference of ideas with Democrats. That was understandable. Now, right wing fund raisers have discovered that there is no money in agreement. Any position -- even your own -- will become anathema to you if a Democrat agrees to it. Like the ACA. Like George Bush's foreign policy. Like bailing out failing banks. It is (I hardly need to add) insane. And (can we be frank?) it's your fault. You haven't been paying attention. You haven't taken principled stands. You've simply been following headlines telling you what to do. By all means, take a principled stand. Just don't farkin' change it because a group of fund raisers and noisemakers tell you it's no longer conservative.

You stupid, farkin' ash-hats.

Apple pie, maybe. Apple pancakes are un-American. You'd never see a bald eagle eating apple pancakes.

If the FCC reclassified ISPs as public utilities they could do it with an administrative memo.  Obama could make that happen with an executive order.  The whole thing would take a day and Congress couldn't do anything about it.

It's full of corn.
I think we can all agree that when a culture has deteriorated to the point that it's members are attempting to make maple syrup from corn, it's time to start shiatting on people from trees.

There seems to be broad support in the House for a national potatoe.

Right. FTA: Net neutrality fails will cause piracy - because after they throttle Netflix your ISP will provide great speed to those out of the kindness of their heart. /s

Agreed. Corn is only good on the cob, or fermented in some way.

Isn't the thrust of the article that will end up with three options:


1) Pay through the nose for a good service from one of the streamers that pays every ISP big bucks
2) pay a reasonable amount of a crap service from ones that don't pay the ISPs
3) For those that won't pay out big time, rather than pay less for second rate service, get a second rate service for free via piracy
