The Knox County Commission is crazy as hell

I don't know any other way to put it...this is so mind bendingly stupid that it defies explanation.

Ok, here is the deal: Wal-Mart is building a new store in Halls and its "going forward." Everybody knows its going to be built. Its a DONE DEAL!! The County Commission does NOT have to give away the taxpayers money via TIF financing in order to get the project going.

And yet, they are going to give away $4.5 million of Knox County Taxpayer's money.
