What I would like to see for the HalfTime show @ the Super Bowl

Been reading about the flack Gladys Knight is taking for accepting an offer to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl
and about artists deciding to perform or not @ the HalfTime show

I feed the Trolls

Usually I stick to my own advice, but this pissed me off show much I responded. On my Facebook feed , South Jersey News posted a story on How the new Congressman was trying to past bills that made sure that the Coast Guard and FAA workers got paid. I replied to that story and Thanked him for his efforts and I stated "Everybody should get paid for what work they have performed> Well that trigger two trolls, who felt the need to address me directly on how wrong that was. So instead of replying directly to the Trolls posts I just made another one, replying to the original news story. Here's what I posted:

"Time to feed the trolls. So someone is watching out for the Coast Guard and FAA workers, who are citizens and many who are veterans. In my post I thank him for his efforts. I also suggested that Everybody should get paid for their work. So far two Troll had to post to my comment.
Read what I wrote and read what they wrote. Who are these sick people who have a problem with people getting paid for the work that they do?
Yes you can express yourself and your views, but why do you think it's OK to hurt people? There are many people reaching out trying to help these people. I'm sure that there are REpublicans, conservatives and veterans pitching in. Do you have a problem with anyone who is trying to help their fellow man/person/family? The "Us vs. Them" is an old propaganda trick still being used today.
Be a part of the Human Race and show some respect for your fellow Man/person/family, or NOT. The choice is yours .
Now the flaming can begin"

Too Much?
