The Louisiana Social Pledge
We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

3…2…1…Self-Destruct (Louis Toliver Jr)
Who’s clock am I living by?
It must be man’s because my spirit transcends time
I must be careful not to put my faith in time
If I spend my life racing against time then it is likely I will self-destruct
Time is not my enemy but my friend
It is to only here to remind me how important it is to be living
I shall resist those things that leave time used or filled
Instead I will embrace those things that expand time
3…2…1…the countdown of the clock is just my imagination
Only GOD knows what time is and what it shall be
I must not let time turn me into my own enemy
Time is not life.
Life is the then, now, and tomorrow.
I am living life, not time.
I will not self-destruct.
