I've learned that when you're dealing with ANY conspiracy theory (9/11, JFK, tax protestors who claim the 16th Amendment isn't valid), don't waste your time engaging them.
Discussions are futile. They have their views and if you don't agree, at best you're simply uninformed and at worst you're p...
