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.

Swimming in My Dreams (Louis Toliver Jr)
My head swells
I am floating through a sea of dreams
I must be careful or I will drown
I will drown, slowly, and no one will be around
I swim faster!
Ideas are all around me and I feel them
I let the ideas seep into my pores and I let the ideas poor from my soul
I remember my first dream when I was young, when I was naïve, when I was bold.
And I am still bold
And awake…full of life
But I think I’m hungry
I eat and eat my dreams and I spit them out
But why spit when I can chew?
I choke on MY words!
I am swimming
I can swim
I exist too, I know
The sea is vast and I can see far along the horizon.
Don’t I have a say?
I feel my body soak
Am I in water?
I am a dream in water
I am dreaming
But am I dying?
We all die in water
But I gave birth to water
