"Dynasty" Am I wrong here?

Because it just bugs me. Thanks


"Dynasty"
"It's her turn", "the anointed one", "the coronation". I have to wonder why Bernie's supporters have to invent false memes to prop up their support for him. Isn't it enough to be honest in criticism as well as support? By the way, the definition of "dynasty" is actually available to anyone in any respected dictionary. Personally, I would like to see a link to the dictionary that defines the word as one husband, duly elected, and one wife, duly elected. If Hillary is the next president, it won't be because she inherited the position, and it most certainly will not be because her husband appointed her. This kind of dishonest bullshit won't get Bernie any closer to the nomination either. (Don't Take the last sentence wrong. Hillary has got this!:thumbsup

3. Thanks

I think I got it right. My impression is that of an adult trying to converse with a mean spirited child. I don't feel this way about all of Bernie's supporters, but they do themselves a disservice by the silence they choose, rather than at least correcting those that fit the description.

2. "Dynasty" directed at Hillary is sexist demagoguery. do not respect anyone who resorts to that.

11. because it

wasn't a dynasty when bush the lesser ran. It wasn't even called a dynasty when bush the dumbest teased about running and then announced.
It only became a dynasty when HRC entered the race with high poll numbers.


IOW that is mainly reserved for HRC. Sexist as hell. It wasn't a dynasty for the men. It is also a way to say her only qualifications are because of Bill.

13. I knew we did

Tournament of the bands last night at the high school. I didn't get home until midnight. I was too simplistic with my post, because quite frankly no amount of coffee is going to wake me up today.

9. 'sexist demagoguery'?

 

Or perhaps some people are just deeply uncomfortable with the idea that in a country of nearly 320 million people, members of the same immediate family would end up running for the highest office in the land?

10. Yes, Sexist Demagoguery. Hillary stands on her own.. it's sexist to call it a dynasty... and

demagoguery.. look it up.

I'll look it up for you

Demagoguery is an appeal to people that plays on their emotions and prejudices rather than on their rational side.

6. Sort of adds a whole other layer to marriage, doesn't it?

As in do not marry anyone if you think you might like one day to have the same job. But then again, it probably only applies to women.

15. I think....

...there are excusable occasions for misusing the English language. Willful ignorance, and dishonesty are two examples that do not qualify. If at the end of Hillary's time in office, elections by the people are abolished, and she appoints Chelsea to the position, one might consider it to be the start of a dynasty. A most unlikely occurrence.

8. I personally don't think anything will get Bernie closer to the nomination....

and I don't think anyone cares about that stuff outside of the "echo chamber".

It was just a burr in my shoe that I wanted to get rid of. A little burr.
