News just breaking from Forbes in the last few minutes that Denver billionaire and ace insider trader, Philip F. Anschutz announced he will retire as a director of Qwest Communications, Union Pacific Railroad and Regal Entertainment Group so he can concentrate on his growing private empire. That’s ‘cos since the success of “Ray” and “The Chronicles of a Fucking Wardrobe,” he’s got Hollywood fever and thinks he's Cecil B. De Mille! According to the piece, Anschutz, 66, will retain his stock ownership in all three companies. He also owns major stakes in oil, railroads, sports teams, theaters and, most recently, movies and newspapers. Fuck, he probably controls your mind! Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is a former director at Qwest and current Union Pacific director. He called Anschutz an innovator who is an "extraordinary investor." And, this is the part I love… "He tries to get strong boards where he is and supports management," Donohue said. Yeah, like he’s supporting Joe Nacchio former CEO of Qwest who took a measly $100 million out of the company while Anschutz was taking out fucking billions. As someone once said… If you’re going to steal, steal really, really big! Oh, and being a born again Christian and a major donor to the Republican party helps a lot.
Remember Phil. You can't take it with you!
