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.

21st Century Problems: The Return of the Surrogate Father (#15)(Louis Toliver Jr, Swartz, LA)


"21st Century Problems: The Return of the Surrogate Father (#15)"

I’m not going to lie. RightSaid Fred1991 a.k.a. “Me” has been laying low and avoiding gaming because I am not sure how to keep dodging FishEater2013 a.k.a Ben’s want for me to attend his parent appreciation at his Junior High School. I mean this is already a touchy line making friends with a 12-yeard old through PS3 online-gaming. Woah, I didn’t mean to use the word “touchy”.  Now this conversation is awkward. What if I’m being set up for one of those To Catch a Predator epsisodes? Right? I am no fool I saw the 1st episode of the 1st Season of Degrassi: The New Generation where Emma got lured into a hotel room with a pedophile. Except I feel like the roles are reversed. I feel like Emma. I feel violated. What should I do?  I mean what kind of home situation is this kid going through that he is reaching out to a complete stranger to his act as his parent? I’m afraid to keeping ignoring him. What if he gets depressed or something and goes and gets a gun and goes and shoots up his school. I mean is that crazy of me to be worried about these things kinds of problems in the 21st Century (ooooh title drop…clever eh?). I mean I live in Louisiana. Do you know how easy it is to obtain a gun here? I mean I love my guns don't get me wrong. I am just a bit nervous about the wrong person getting one like Miley Cyrus, Ricky Martin, or Barbara Walters. I have 7 guns. One for each day of the week. But Don't hate. I am sane. That's my right. But the last thing I want to do is to be the catalyst for some depressed kid taking out his problems on his peers or teachers. #WWJBD (What Would Justin Bieber Do?)

  1. That is a tough one. your concerns are completely valid but the last thing you want is to be put on the sex offender/pedophile list based on a misunderstanding. I think you have two options, tell him the truth, that this is the risk you bare and arent willing to take it, you could lie and say youre working that day, or do it but get his parents blessing (wierd if that actually works). But that may not work if his home situation is so screwed "that he is reaching out to a complete stranger to act as his parent."

    Dude this is kind of like ststistics with tyoe 1 and type 2 errors. Have to decide which ootion has the least cruddiest outcome.
