"You take no shit. None. Not a bit. In your 40s you want to say you take no shit, but you still do."

"In your 60s you take none. There’s both a quickening and a calming—there’s a sense that you don’t have as much time on earth as you once did. For me, there’s also a sense of calming about that."

Said Oprah, about being in her 60s.

I'm sure I'll get a Google AdSense "Dear Publisher" letter informing me of "recent activity related to violations found on specific pages of [my] websites" because I've got the word "shit" in a post title. But Oprah said it. Oprah said it. And I'm in my 60s and I am taking no shit.

I got offered that shit — but didn't take it — when I blogged about "shithole." But the President of the United States said it. The President of the fucking United States. Or so I'd heard.

If you don’t actually exercise freedom of speech, it atrophies. Back in the 1990s, I was sure that “nigger”, “cunt”, and “cocksucker” were the three most shocking words in the English language, at least among whites people. Who the hell knows today?

Did the President really say it, Althouse? Or was it a "smear" as you called it?

My issue all along is what your own unspoken issue is now; we just don't know. Because nobody from the White House would supply an honest answer to the simple question of what did the President say.

Gee, having power and money also helps too, Oprah.

60 year old janitors or 60 year olds receiving indifferent care at the VA hospital still take plenty of shit.

Hagar said...

Considering the language now heard on just about any TV show, it is beyond me why good, old Anglo-Saxon "shit" should be spelled "sh*t."

And Trump only claims he said "shithouse," not "shithole," as the MSM is still going on about.

Tim in Vermont said...

Trump won’t take the shit Chuck is dishing out, and Chuck is devastated.

Tim in Vermont said...

Remember that song “She’s a brick --- house.”

That’s when they couldn’t say “Brick shithouse” which is, of course a shit house that is built to the highest specifications. “Built like a brick shithouse” was a common phrase used by my peers to describe a woman at a time when I was too young to understand what it meant.

Truthavenger said...

This is why for centuries the common view is that older people are wiser. Not only because of their experience, but because they don't give a shit about impressing anyone or offending anyone.

I'm 62, and I really don't give a shit what anyone thinks of me anymore.

Ann Althouse said...

"People will give the amount of shit you let them give you. Don't let them."

I think it's kind of like If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all.

If I didn't take shit, I wouldn't get no gifts at all.

MadisonMan said...

I would say you take no shit from your peers.

If someone is above you authority-wise, you still take shit. But it's a lot lot harder not to be caught rolling your eyes when it happens.

Sarah from VA said...

I was talking with my 7-year-old yesterday about bad words, and apparently "shit" is the most interesting bad word to first graders. "All my friends talk about the s-h-word," she said. She was almost disappointed to learn that it was just another way to say poop.

It bothers me far more the casual way the names of deity ("Jesus" "OMG" etc) are thrown around by people, including young children.

Daniel Jackson said...

What about Giving Shit Where Shit is Due?

Okay, take no shit is the watchword for our sixties and Plus; but, what about giving shit back when it should be given?

For example, the Polish Government has now made it illegal to link Poles with the Nazi death camps built in THEIR fucking country during WWII. https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5079236,00.html

Aside from being a very bad Polish joke, I think this is a situation where boatloads of shit need to be sent overseas?

Are we supposed to take THIS shit??

Birkel said...

Oprah does not have "Fuck you" money.
Oprah has "fuck everybody" money.

Bob Boyd said...

You take no shit. None. Not a bit. When you're a millionaire you want to say you take no shit, but you still do.
When you're a billionaire you take none. There’s both a quickening and a calming — there’s a sense that you have more money than anyone on earth. For me, there’s also a sense of calming about that.

Will Cate said...

"Do no harm; take no shit" has been my lifelong mantra.

Sally327 said...

Maybe getting so old that you crow about how you just don't have to take anyone's shit anymore is just a bunch of bullshit, a delusional pretense that moving ever closer to that moment when you shuffle off this mortal coil for good is something to be celebrated. Look! I'm old so now I'm free to be left alone and not take any shit. No! Rage rage against the dying of the light. Bring on that shit, I can take as much as you want to shovel at me, I can take it because I refuse to be old and I am going to live forever.

I am uncomfortable with this unseemly piling on against Chuck. Chuck has been an unusually loyal and steadfast commenter on the Althouse blog. Attention must be paid.

MikeR said...

Wow. One of the nicest things about my (almost) turning 60 is that I feel I have grown over the years to be less fussed about stuff. Over the years I think I've learned that very few things really matter in the long term, and mostly to ignore not getting what I want on the rest.
This is really important when your health gradually turns against you in your older years.
And here is someone who says that she is _more_ uptight at 60 than at 40? Pathetic. Sad!
Good thing she's a billionaire, or she'd be finding out real quick what happens to obnoxious old people. My wife and daughter work in nursing homes, and they have stories about how critically important it is that the people there like you. Life and death.

Everyone is tired of taking your Aspergery shit, Chuck, and your nonstop obsession with what Althouse does or does not say. I don't know who you think you are to be constantly trying to dictate to her. If I were her I'd be wary of you. Are you going to show up in her front yard one of these days to talk some sense into her? Fuck off.

Well, look at the questions he saw fit to ask me. To answer them would be to take shit. That's an opinion I formed without reference to anything anyone else is saying.

There's a certain style of commenting around here that provokes back and forth with the commenter's name constantly getting repeated. The people who do it KNOW I have asked them to stop. It's their methodology and they mean to do it despite civil explanations about why it is a problem. It does not equate with being "loyal and steadfast."

By the way, I thought "loyal" was bad. I was watching CNN last night...

I never get into the Chuckfests for this reason (a. it's boring and b. the boss says please don't do it) but I broke my rule this morning because it was just so damned absurd.

And I'm serious about the unhealthy level of concern with what Althouse does/says, especially since from his own comments there is also email traffic that goes on in addition to the commenting. Boss lady, I know you've been doing this a long time and you're experienced in dealing with weirdos, and I don't mean to tell you your bidness, but his behavior seems like the kind of thing that could veer into dangerous. Just be careful.

Yes, that's what I meant. Rusty, guess what? If you are in the VA or a nursing home and you don't like their attitude and you won't take their shit, the staff might just decide they won't take yours - literally. They'll leave you lying in it. Or they won't bring you your pain meds.

“If someone is above you authority-wise, you still take shit. But it's a lot lot harder not to be caught rolling your eyes when it happens.”

I rolled my eyes when I was younger. Now I just say, in a spirit of helpful and productive cooperation, exactly why I think it’s not such a great idea. I’ve reached that point in my career where I’m older than many of my work peers and I’m enjoying that, as it allows me to stand free of their agitations and competitions. Look, if you really are wiser for being older, you’ll soon find that younger people will seek your opinions and advice. If growing older is merely turning you into a difficult curmudgeonly asshole, they’ll avoid you like the plague. People, of any age, who loudly proclaim that they’ll take no shit, usually receive no love either.

Chuck said...

Hmm. I asked two questions, comprising less than 20 words. No insults. Nothing like calling Althouse a "Cuck" or a "Lifelong Republican" (she isn't, of course) or a "titty twister," with the false accusation that she had actually threatened someone with "titty twisting." I didn't ridicule her as "Former Obama Supporter Althouse" or accuse her of accepting troll money from Dnipro, or anything like that.

I asked two straight-up questions stemming directly from her last paragraph to this post, and incorporating another of her recent posts in which she did call it a "smear" to have referred to Trump's saying "shithole countries."

Two quotes come to mind. One from a peer who, having been caught in the act of making hilarious fun of our boss, commented, "I think he's secure enough to distinguish between good-natured shit-giving and actual disrespect."

The other is from Michael Gambon near the end of Layer Cake:

"You're born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake son."

Dust Bunny Queen said...

So...basically Oprah is saying that at her age she has run out of her lifetime alotment of "Give a Fucks" and she doesn't take shit or give a fuck about it anymore.

I know the feeling :-D

Bad Lieutenant said...


I asked two straight-up questions

In one post. How many do you ask a day? How many since you've been on the blog? How many does anyone else here ask?

You've had the position explained to you repeatedly yet you persist. You are no gentleman.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Evidently Chuck still has quite a large allotment of "Give a Fucks" available to him because he is throwing them all over this blog.

cubanbob said...

Oprah is wrong. Life is a multistory outhouse. No matter where you are, you're going to get shat on. Just look at Trump. He's old, a billionaire and President Of The United States and he gets shat on 24/7. To be sure, he seeks out the shit and dishes it out as well but all the same he gets shat upon despite his age, wealth and position. No, what Oprah has is called FU money and an age where you no longer need to care what most people think but even that level of raincoat can't keep you completely shit free.

Karga said...

Well the Prof is right. Chuck thinks he is extremely clever and somehow he thinks he is above the rest. One thing I cannot understand is how so many take notice of his comments and answer. That is what he is living for. I would like him to analyse all the answers and stop claiming that he voted for your President because being clever does not necessarily means being intelligent. I must admit when I read the comments in any of the threads if he is not present I feel disappointed.

Mike said...

Someone who is tortured by the the thought that he’ll never know exactly whether the President said “shithole” or “shithouse” in a private conversation behind closed doors is spending too much brainpower pondering the irrelevant and unknowable. This is truly trivial shit, and worse than all that it relies on one of the slimiest creatures to troll the swamp, Dick Durbin. Get over it Man. That was not a pivotal moment in time only in your mind.

tcrosse said...

One must distinguish between Taking Shit and Taking A Shit. This is important.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

OK...to be serious for a moment.

As someone else said up-thread: It is easier to not take the crap that other people are dishing out when you are a powerful wealthy celebrity.

It really doesn't have that much to do with age as it has to do with your status. A person who is eking out a living by cleaning your house, mowing your lawn, serving you food at McDonalds......they have to take the crap. Oprah not so much.

Her smug attitude is infuriating.

LLR Chuck: "No insults. Nothing like calling Althouse a "Cuck" or a "Lifelong Republican" (she isn't, of course)"

Why in the world is it a problem calling someone a lifelong republican when that someone claimed that label for themselves?

It's really quite telling that LLR Chuck, after SELF-IDENTIFYING as a LLR is now quite put out about being labeled a lifelong republican and even going so far as to include that term in a list of "insults".

Very telling indeed.

You should feel free to draw obvious conclusions.

Drago said...

What's next for LLR Chuck?

Asserting "Chuck" is an insult as well?

Drago said...

I mean, I know how in the dumps LLR Chuck happens to be after the visual and rhetorical and Generic Ballot shellacking his democrat operational allies have taken in the last week, so its understandable that he is in a "shed my own skin" sort of a mood.

If Trump said it, he said in in a closed-door meeting and not on the internet. There is a time and place for everything.

Drago said...

ARM: "I am uncomfortable with this unseemly piling on against Chuck. Chuck has been an unusually loyal and steadfast commenter on the Althouse blog. Attention must be paid."

I find it disturbing that after ARM goes to all the trouble of assuming the "Proper Althouse Blog Comment Monitor" duties, albeit in a volunteer status, that he is forced to perform these necessary and probably almost UN-mandated duties without the proper accoutrements: Specifically an ARMBAND.

You can't be a Proper Monitor without an ARMBAND denoting your new-found authority.

I recommend Althouse commission a study and solicit input as to the colors and logos for such an armband.

We already have many examples of potentially appropriate designs from the 1920's Soviet Union, 1930's from you-know-where, and the 1960's from Tom Friedman approved China.

Ooops.

I slyly insulted a NYT talking head.

Sorry LLR Chuck.

D said...

Immediate thought: I suppose this quote is a good example of the who said it thing. Would it be read the same if the quote had come from someone else? Say....
Second thought: Similar to others upthread. It brought to my mind the two quotes of Tiberius (or Caligula? - via R Graves book, so maybe not entirely accurate?) which has more to do with describing the character of certain people who unlimited power and money: "let them fear me, as long as they obey" and then later "let them hate me, so long as they fear" (This "not taking shit from" comes close to inspiring "fear" in others, if human courtesy and respect are already off your table)
Third thought, built on second: Would Oprah nod politely if the interviewer asked whether sometimes a 62 year old sales clerk might still have to "take shit" from a billionnaire having a bad day at the hat store because a who-knows-what-exactly miscommunications thing got blown up into a worldwide media item?
Because that sales clerk - being 62 - might have learned from her lifetime of taking shit experiences that some fights you aint gonna win. Dont matter about being (possibly) "right" - theres many reasons why the shit keeps coming down on you. Its called reality. In this life, it's a hard shit thats a gonna fall. Well, unless you think everyone is like you and is a billionnaire. Check your priv... oh, hell, nevermind. Different rules apply I guess, for some.

Final thought: Thanks for spreading this none-shall-shit-upon-me-no-longer idealism, Oprah! Personally, I cant WAIT to live in a world filled with lots of Boomers thinking that they "put in their time of taking shit" and now they dont need to take any more of that. Cause 60!!

Or may I presume these new terms of societal interaction of no-shit-be-ataking" are non-age or wealth or race or gender specific? Cause Yey Yey to that idea: who doesnt WANT a world with harder social lines drawn, based on personally determined shit-taking, than is already found today?

Or Barack Obama to give barely-disguised middle finger salutes to his political opponents in public? Sorry, but Little Dick Durbin and people who want to join Little Dick Durbin in their fake sense of being affronted can go sod off.

I think Las Vegas, Nevada is a Shithole. I think I pick-up on the desperation vibes more than the good times vibes. I know several people who agree with me and several that don't. I'd still go to Vegas for the right reasons - good company, a special show, etc. But there are many many other places I'd rather go.

That said, I'd take Vegas over Haiti. There are shitholes and then there are SHITHOLES.

Speaking of shit, when I was stationed at Clark AB, we got this Chief in who went on a rampage over 'unauthorized' headgear. Long story short, I submitted a joke suggestion to my boss that a Special Hat Investigation Team be formed and that the Chief should lead it. Of course, so folks knew who he was, he should have a distinctive hat with his title on it -SHIT Head. My boss stripped out my name and gave it to the Wing Commander who Routed it to the PACAF CC who sent it to the Chief. I'm told the Chief did not appreciate it.

I'm not advocating hats for the commenters here...

My Dad's favorite shit joke:

The owner of a small outhouse cleaning company goes to a job with his three employees. The pumper is broken so they have to remove the shit by buckets. One crawls down in the hole and fills a bucket and hands it up to the next guy standing halfway up the ladder who takes it and passes it up to the next guy waiting above the toilet seat. Then that guy takes it and hands the bucket full of shit to a guy who takes it and dumps it in the truck. Can you tell who the owner of the company is? He's the guy at the bottom of the hole. He's not taking any shit from anybody.

I pardoned. No problem. I wouldn't shout it, but I think it is the right question. But more accurately, what is the problem with Trump admitting that he said it?

People like you believe he really did say it, and that it was essentially the right thing to say. That Trump said it, and that the only wrongdoing was the later leak of a comment that was made in a private meeting.

But Trump won't admit it. And White House Communications seem to have gone to extraordinary lengths to deny it. So extraordinary, they apparently got Sen. Tom Cotton to lie about it. Or almost lie about it. The "almost" part being that Cotton didn't actually 100% deny that Trump said it.

I don't get it, and I don't like it. I want a straight answer. Is it something for TrumpWorld to celebrate (THEN OWN IT!), or is it a false allegation (with unfortunately very credible support)?

Google is saying remove the shit or lose ad revenue?

What a crock of shit.

LLR Chuck: "I pardoned. No problem. I wouldn't shout it, but I think it is the right question. But more accurately, what is the problem with Trump admitting that he said it?"

LOL

We are on the cusp of finally breaking thru the FBI/DOJ/Hillary Coverup and this is the burning question in LLR Chuck's "fertile" mind.

Precisely as the dems would prefer it to be.

Unexpectedly.

You should feel free to draw obvious conclusions.

It's a distraction...which is precisely why you are obsessed with it.

Another group that often takes no shit: pregnant women.

I sometimes have problems taking a shit.

"Accidental Leftist" Chuck: "I don't get it, and I don't like it."

I'm picturing LLR Chuck sitting in his highchair, banging his sippy cup and drooling as he screams this.....

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "But Trump won't admit it. And White House Communications seem to have gone to extraordinary lengths to deny it."

You mean, like Dems/MSM extraordinary lengths to deny any rational reason for Congressional oversight of rogue FBI/DOJ agents and releasing the summary memo?

"extraordinary lengths" like that?

LOL

Thanks "Bowe Bergdahl Republican" Chuck!

Google stole a shitload of money from me when it banned Adsense on my sites several years ago. A vague violation. No process for appeal. Money in my account? Gone.

And it wasn't just me. They do that all the time.

One day, they're going to get what's coming to them. They are thieves.

"She thinks I need to be reminded that tomorrow is Friday. She thinks my being retired means being retarded too."

Is that the kind of shit I have to look forward to?

Rabel said...

About Adsense:

1. In Firefox with Adblockplus enabled, I see no ads but Adblockplus tells me it is blocking 20 ads.

2. In Firefox with Adblockplus disabled, after a page reload I see no ads and no difference in the posts or links or videos.

3. In Internet Explorer without Adblockplus installed, I see one ad (Bloomberg Law).

Conclusion: Adblockplus is giving me shit and I'm taking it.

Drago said...

Has LLR Chuck demanded all republicans and all their family members, especially the small children, who were on the train be interrogated to determine if Trump played a role in the collision?

If not Im sure he will at any moment.

In fact, lets get the White House Communications team under the bright lights as well.

After all, there are still many questions involving pecan pies, numbers of diet cokes and numbers of ice cream scoops for which we still do not have adequate answers.

Late yesterday I shared the story about the guy in the bar with the Trump obsession. He's here again today, but now there's a twist. I see the local freeloader off to one side watching the usual back and forth including our bored bouncer looking up from her tablet and half heartedly trying to break things up. Suddenly, the freeloader's accross the room, throws his Arm around the guy, and shouts "Leave my buddy alone, he's as much a regular as any you other guys!" Now there's two of them. Geez, some will do anything for a free drink.

@Jim, they’re building their new HQ on tidal mud flatscreens halfway between the San Andreas fault and the Hayward fault. It could happen.

"LLR Chuck's bestest pal Sen Blumenthal took time out from accusing the Republicans of all being McCarthyites to actually, I kid you not, being a tool of the Russians!!"

Sign up to be a tool of the Russians and they'll send you coupons for 25 percent off Beluga caviar and vodka at Costco's.

So it's totes worth it.

Try uBlock origin. It's a comprehensive filter whose function ranges from broad spectrum (i.e. domain, subdomain) to style class to element class to individual node processing in a local or global context, and a fairly intuitive interface for configuration and analysis.

Nice double entendre there!

Google takes no shit.

rhhardin said...

Adblockplus is a huge consumer of memory and processor time. uBlock origin is fairly benign. I don't tune them, just install and take what it does.

Rabel said...

Thanks for the advice, but I don't have any problems with Adblockplus except for the apparent fact that it is misleading me about how many ads it is actually blocking.

I'm open to the possibility that certain persons have planted subliminal anti-Trump advertisements all over Althouse and it is blocking those. I do find Melania to be even better looking when it's running.

Snark said...

Althouse blocked for “adult and pornography” at work again, as of this morning. Hope that shit was worth it! Fortunately for you people I rarely have anything nice to say anyway, especially between the hours of 9 and 5 EST. Ha ha!

rhhardin said...

You're dealing with a Google robot with simple rules, like does "shit" appear or not. Not an actual person, not that a person is guaranteed to be smarter, because they can get in robot trouble themselves.

"I never get into the Chuckfests for this reason (a. it's boring and b. the boss says please don't do it)".

Wait. Althouse says don't get into it with ChuckenShit? I must have missed the memo.

Chuck said...

Jupiter you definitely missed the memo. You must have missed several memos.

CWJ said...

Hey Snark. DO some work at work.

There's bound to be a pony in there somewhere.

OK. Everyone should just ignore C***k [or L*R if you prefer]. Then he won't have anything to squawk about. Or will he...?
