Do not under any circumstances say or write anything negative, or even make jokes, about the Thai royal family. There are strict Lese Majeste laws. This extends as far as the currency, which bears the picture of the king. Many locals will not hesitate to physically assault you or at the least verbally attack you. This will also usually land you in prison and your embassy will have little influence in freeing you. The Islamist group Jemaah Islamiyah still operates in the country, and may have links to foreign jihadists.
It is very unlikely that a Thai person would be offended by a tourist asking genuine question about the political situation. However, it is best to avoid this topic entirely, it should be of little interest to you anyway. Many Thai nationals have died as a result of heavy-handed police initiatives and politics-related violence.
