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.

Hold Up…Wait a Minute (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)
"Hold Up…Wait a Minute"
I think you have me confused with a fool
How could you ever think, for you, I would drool?
When no one is looking you say you love me
I’m the first person you run to constantly
When everyone is looking I say I love you back
I built us a home but yet you ran back to that shack
You left me and never without a thank you or goodbye
So trust me, I promise my love for you will die
Maybe not today, but tomorrow you will be an afterthought
Some day you will remember how hard for you I fought
But the next time you see this shooting star high in the sky
You will face the reality that you are falling star (if even), “Goodbye”
