If you lie down with dogs, you wake up with fleas.




Better example? Good.

Please feel free to add examples below. There are plenty.

2. It's not a meme.

 

I'm not going to bother explaining what a meme is.

But if you mean comparing $$$ from lobbyist groups to individual donations then I get what you're saying.

I'll delete the other post. Thanks.

3. Why arent you going to bother to explain what a meme is?

Here I'll do it for you:

Internet meme (/ˈmiːm/ meem) is an activity, concept, catchphrase or piece of media which spreads, often as mimicry, from person to person via the Internet.[1] Some notable examples include posting a photo of people lying down in public places (called "planking" and uploading a short video of people dancing to the Harlem Shake.

A meme is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture".[2] An Internet meme may take the form of an image, hyperlink, video, website, or hashtag. It may be just a word or phrase, including an intentional misspelling. These small movements tend to spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, or news sources. They may relate to various existing Internet cultures or subcultures, often created or spread on various websites, or by Usenet boards and other such early-internet communications facilities. Fads and sensations tend to grow rapidly on the Internet, because the instant communication facilitates word-of-mouth transmission.


So yah that's a meme... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_meme

7. But that's the way you are doing it, and it's easy to dismiss.

You might have a point but meme's aren't going to shift an electorate.

9. Because it's a meme, just like my formation gifs on my signature line...

Just like the Harlem Shake.

Presentation is everything, and this doesn't do it.

10. I guess everyone else saw this image everywhere?

 

I haven't seen it until today, so maybe that's why you're calling it a meme and I'm all

21. Are you down with the prison industry?

Hillary just recently started talking about ending private prisons and reshaping policy.

This post is relevant.
