    I like to. Sometimes I have the time. Sometimes I don't. This weekend, in NYC, there were 2 911 "Truthers" handing out pamphlets. I had an 8 year old with me, so I didn't think it appropriate to really engage. But I just looked at the guy and said "you know, they really did fly planes into the buildings that day." My niece wanted to know what the discussion was all about, but I figured I'd leave the details to the parents.

    Soo...do you engage or just walk by and roll your eyes?

    I punch them. Sometimes I kick them. It depends on the shoes I'm wearing.

    No. Not while they are in protest mode.

    I will engage people of differing political stripes on particular issues. I have a habit of arguing against whatever a person may be saying, even if I happen to agree with him/her, just because I am typically a contrarian.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    Philly is the sasquatch, not me. I wouldn't kick you. I would just shoot you.

    Now, stop trying to jack the thread.

    The thing about protestors is that they typically are not in a mode that makes two way communication possible. Frequently they have a circled-wagons mentality that precludes real dialogue. This is expecially the case if there are counter-demonstrators present.

    The us-vs-them is usually firmly in place.

    Plus, if these are 9/11 Truthers, do you think that they could be convinced of anything contrary to the flavor Kool Aid they've already drunk?

    That's why it's best just to punch them.
