Dinner With Anthony Munoz

On Monday, I made an eight-hour round trip to Cincinnati to hear former Bengals offensive tackle and NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz speak to the Blue Chip Young Republican Club at Molly Malone's. I have been a Bengals fan since 1985 and yes I stuck with them through all these years.

He spoke for about 30 minutes covering a variety of topics from his childhood in Southern California growing up with a single mother and several siblings to his work with the Anthony Munoz Foundation.
He mentioned that his experiences over the course of his lifetime in combination with his Christian faith and work ethic have given him the passion for his work and compassion to share it with others.

On the general issue of politics, he expressed dismay at the notion that government can act with impunity confiscating people's money through taxation which he says leads to more waste and less money for people to have for paying bills, investing, and using to build a business. He states he believes that the economic bailouts being initiated in Washington D.C. will ultimately make the situation worse and delay any possible recovery for some time.
