Not specifically off the top of my head.  Why do you ask?  Do you know of any 'business in money to lose business'?

Most likely, the idiot who posted just before you thinks he does.

EDIT:  Wow!  The idiot's on a roll today.  Such prolific writing.

One would think a CPA would understand how business works and why a company is in business in the first place....... wouldn't one?

Most likely the claim to be a CPA is an outright lie.

Just wondering why you thought the observation to be pithy.   :shrug:

You need to go back and re-read what Lipstick wrote, that is NOT what she wrote, you mixed up the words in your re-telling.

The quote is a C&P from the transcript.

In reply #4 above, I quoted LOAH's post as she wrote it.  I answered her question and within my own comment again quoted from the transcript.  You're not making any sense.

I happened to catch the show when Rush made a slip of the tongue and said, "in money to lose business."  I chuckled at the malaprop, but that's all it was.  Let's focus on substance.

Nope, it is you who is not making any sense....  she asked if you knew any business who is not in business to make money and you transposed what she said and attempted to use your transposition to mock her...... this is what YOU wrote and ergo it is what you wrote that made zero sense:

Do you know of any 'business in money to lose business'?

Her question stands -- your mocking aside;

DO you know any business which is in business to lose money?  I certainly do not.... evidentally you, the CPA does.........

No business is in money to lose business, unless -- well, there are some that try to.

It sounds like the gasbag himself needs to answer your question.  Do you even read these endless transcripts posted here?

So you are referring to the Rush transcript........ did you ever consider it could have been incorrectly transcribed?

I don't think it was incorrectly transcribed, as I happened to be listening to the show.  Rush simply made a slip of the tongue, just like when one might say "Obama bin Laden" or "leap before you look."
