Matthew Hill News

Well, there was an anti-war rally in Jonesborough this weekend, and U.S. military protester Matthew Hill was referenced here.

Also, good old vandalism expert Timothy Hill makes $50,000 a year, according to this blog post. Must be nice. Glad that Timmy and his daddy still ask people to give money to their Jimmy Swaggart-like radio station.

Matthew Hill and Nazi Germany

Even when he gets something right, Matthew Hill finds a way to be an embarrassment to the Tri-Cities. This came from the Oct. 12 BHC.
Tennessee should end its heavy-handed effort to clamp down on cross-border tobacco purchases. It’s embarrassing to have state revenue agents staking out the parking lots of convenience stores and large discounters looking for Tennessee residents buying a few cartons of smokes. Seems like a waste of resources, too.

On this, we agree with state Rep. Matthew Hill, R-Jonesborough, although his rhetoric – he compared the state to Nazi Germany, for crying out loud – is overblown.
Also, I find it amusing that Matthew Hill is mentioned in a story that has the following paragraph:
Tennessee wouldn’t be in this pickle if it didn’t rely so heavily on the sales tax to fund the budget. Because state lawmakers remain averse to an income tax, they’ve been forced to jack up sales tax rates again and again.
