So if this is the true definition of whining then I wonder if King George III considered our founding fathers and people living in the thirteen colonies a bunch of "whiners." After all shouldn't they pay their taxes like good little subjects and not bother the King with trivial matters like making a home in the new and mostly unexplored wilderness.
I am certain that Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette thought the peasants of France were a bunch of "whiners." By 1789, over 80 percent of an average peasant's household income went to purchasing bread alone. After her famous words "Let them eat cake!" she lost her head, literally.
There have been other examples of the elite upper ruling class accusing their lowly little lackeys

Reading some of my posts Mr Phil Gramm would probably consider me a "whiner." If complaining about a Congress that has done absolutely nothing since the 2006 elections and even worse, broke every campaign promise they made makes me a whiner then I wear the badge with honor.
I would remind Mr Gramm that even though we are the lackeys servant to the elite in power, we are the ones that gave them their power. We are also the ones that can take that power away next November. Unlike the Congressmen and women in power today, my power is my vote and it nor my badge can be taken away. As a personal message to Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat cronies that are refusing to bow to the will of the majority, we will remember come November.
We may have to eat cake today but we'll have our bread tomorrow, after you have been dethroned.
Call Nancy Pelosi at: 202-225-0100 and let her know where you stand.
