OA144: Our Football-Free Superb Owl Edition

If you want football-themed Opening Arguments, check out Episode 57 and Episode 58, which tell the tale of how one Donald J. Trump destroyed the USFL.  Everyone else can enjoy today’s sports-free episode, which begins with a discussion of California SB 183 and so-called “sanctuary cities” in light of the State of the Union.

In the main segment, Andrew and Thomas break down news about a proposed Department of Labor rule regarding the “tip credit.”

After that, the guys discuss yesterday’s landmark opinion holding the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau constitutional.

Finally, we end with our third Dungeons & Dragons-themed Thomas Takes the Bar Exam (Question #61) involving lightning, wildfires, an experienced woodsman, and possible assault by an errant crossbow bolt.  Remember that you can play along with #TTTBE by retweeting our episode on Twitter or sharing it on Facebook along with your guess.  We’ll release the answer on next Tuesday’s episode along with our favorite entry!
