Travelers around the country are seeing thousands of flight delays, many up to 2 hours, the result of furloughs the Federal Aviation Administration started earlier this week following sequestration cuts which went into effect last month. The FAA, like many other agencies, are requiring their 47,000 employees - including 13,000 air-traffic controllers – to take extra unpaid days off, one day for every two weeks in this case.
In addition to the inconvenience for travelers, per the Passenger Rights Act passed in 2011, airlines are expected to compensate them for delays and time spent on the tarmac. Airlines, as a result, are calling on the government to fix the furlough issue or, at least, give them exceptions while furloughs are in effect.
It’s one of the first obvious effects sequestration is having on the general population, but if you are expecting Washington to do anything about it, don’t hold your breath. Rather both parties are pointing fingers at each other.
Senator Pat Toomey argued the FAA could cut from less important areas. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers accused the administration of mishandling the situation.
Democrats counter Republicans could have avoided the situation and only they now have the power to abate the impact. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Congress botched the job and the FAA had no choice but to cut back in labor costs to absorb the sequestration cuts.
One thing everyone seems to agree on is that it will only get worse as we head into the summer travel season if no action is taken.

The we talk internet sales tax with Tracy Gordon, Fellow for Economic Studies at The Brookings Institution.
The political battles around sales taxes and the Internet have raged on for years. The solutions that seem the most fair to the states are the least fair to online retailers. Debates have been coming to a close, however, as we are now in the final steps of passing an Internet Sales Tax Bill that is not without problems. This has not passed yet and is not signed into law. It probably will be, so let's go ahead and talk about what this means. Read more... http://www.stevenkaylive.com/article.php?id=362

Are You Supposed To Collect Sales Tax? So many start-up businesses fail to ask if they should be charging sales tax and more often than not it will eventually catch up to you if you’re not careful, so you should do your research before opening up shop. Who do you check with first? The Texas State Comptroller (http://www.window.state.tx.us/contact.html) is the governing force behind the enforcement and collection of all sales tax items that are sold in the State of Texas. However, due to the numerous laws that change on an annual basis with more items and services being added, you must be aware that it’s important to be in tune with everything dealing with your business. One of the most important items if you are to collect sales tax is to find out the amount. The maximum percentage rate is 8.25% but that is dependent upon the actual location of the sale. If you have a traditional brick and mortar location, then you only need to research that specific physical address and you’re good to go. However if you sell in a variety of locations, then tax rates may vary by each of those locales. Yes it can be confusing, however just imagine some of these items which are taxable and nontaxable: Read more... http://www.stevenkaylive.com/article.php?id=262
Anti-tax groups seem to be losing their influence as Republican lawmakers’ constituents support legislation that would require Internet retailers to collect sales taxes.
Then, on Thursday, the White House told Congressional leaders that the nation’s intelligence agencies had determined, “with varying degrees of confidence,” that Mr. Assad’s government had used sarin, a chemical agent, on a small scale. President Obama said last summer that use of chemical weapons was a “red line” that, if crossed, could prompt the United States to intervene, but administration officials made clear that more conclusive evidence would be necessary before any action would be taken.
“We never asked, nor did we encourage, the United States to take military action in Syria,” Mr. Steinitz said at a conference in New York sponsored by The Jerusalem Post. “And we are not making any comparison or linkage with Iran, which is a completely different matter.”

I am very excited tonight to be joined by a new co-host for our Friday and Saturday shows. Mike Slack is going to be sharing the mic with me for the foreseeable future. Join us tonight and welcome Mark to our fellowship!
Tonight we are going to deal with two ballot questions. Amendment 1 is the "Right to Farm" amendment. This issue has passionate conservatives on both sides the like of which we haven't seen since St Louis wanted to control its own police force. The mic is open to anyone who wants to participate in the discussion.
Then we will turn our attention to Amendment 7, the 3/4 cent sales tax. Again, feel free to join in on the discussion.
Listen live at 7PM Missouri time. The studio line for joining in is 347-677-1835.
Welcome to the show! Today's discussion will focus on the pitfalls associated with changeable law, and provide reasons as to why unchangeable law is necessary. Poor people all over the U.S. are being evicted from their homes due to draconian tax laws. Homeless people all over the U.S. are being jailed or fined because of new laws that target the homeless. Common sense solutions would be to ensure that the cities or counties that these homeless reside in would provide some sort of protective shelters rather than create laws to shun them and overburden the criminal justice system. Food, clothing, and medical care can be donated by local businesses or charity organizations to these shelters. There's no need to shun the homeless. Common sense solutions to draconian tax law include getting rid of property taxes. Almost always, a residence in the U.S. will not produce any products that can be sold or used in any beneficial way to the owners, yet property tax continues every year regardless of production from the property. A one time sales tax should be assessed to the property at the point of sale rather than instituting draconian property taxes which can cause a person to have their home forcibly taken from them. If the home is purchased via mortgage, the cost of the tax can be folded into the loan. Cities and counties routinely use tax "surplus" funds to expand or engage in other projects instead of returning that money to the people who were taxed. Remember, only a sales tax is a morally justifiable tax, so long as it is not on food, water, or clothing...the necessities of life.
