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.

People Change (So Let Them) (R.E.) (Louis Toliver- Swartz, LA)


It would be a good idea to observe your neighbors
Notice how they struggle along, daily, with life labors
Pay closer observations to people that grow though
It is those good neighbors that change the status quo
Why throw an obstacle in the way of people who change?
A changing human adapts to and leads in her or his community
Why chose to be the acid that corrodes what’s within your range
I must tell you, adversary to change, that humans reject disunity
When a family unites and changes to maintain its values
It is best to decide what’s important, being a family or alone?
We believe that we can live together and die together fully grown
So any of those who use the past to stop progress, we refuse
Dear adversary to change, please understand nature’s stem
Appearances evolve, not substance; people change, so let them
