The battle of the common man . It is life long. The real community is built on the working man. The guy who is the cop, the fireman , the truck driver. You dig , scrape , sweat , worry . You bargain for wage increases . You strike for your retirement . You pay your dues .They try to squeeze every drop of life you have . They even go after your dignity but you get out with that in tact.... Another first of the month and another check from the fund thats critical . Such a good feeling . You have no say in the contract . Your deal was give , give , give . We will take , take , take . And then , don't worry , we will take care of you. It was so easy to make promises when you were giving and they were taking without hesitation . I would like to hear of someone out there who is working as hard as I did at giving , at fulfilling the promises of giving it back .
