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.

The King and the Emperor (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)


  • "The King and the Emperor"
    Tracking sand
    From a distant land,
    The Emperor has appeared.
    This magnificent man
    Extended his hand,
    Hoping the King would come near.
    "This heart is well fed."
    The King then read
    As his eyebrows began to rise.
    "What needs repair
    In a heart so rare?"
    Toward the Emperor he glides.
    "I am the King."
    The Monarch declared
    Accepting the Emperor's hand.
    As he deeply stared
    Into his heart--
    Eyes flanked by rose strands.
    "I look into the hearts of men,
    Women, nations, and tribes.
    Whatever be your heart's desire
    I am sure to surmise."
    "You do not know what it is I need!"
    The Emperor replied as a taunt.
    He softened,
    "It is too protected for most to perceive:
    It is your heart that I want."
