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.

Who Is Samuel Jones: An Exploratory Series Revealing the Facets of a Personality (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)
Facet 1: C.J. the Protector
C.J. is my family name. Only people who have known me since childhood would know, or even have the privilege, to use it. It combines the initials of my middle and last name: Chavess, Jones. This aspect of my personality is my protector. Therefore, it is the darkest and most callous aspect of who I am. Any pain or trauma is stored and archived within him. This way, personal pain does not easily spread to the rest of who I am. He is devoid of most emotion unless connected to memory, self-preservation or retaliation. C.J. has helped bring me through my life’s most difficult circumstances by tapping into his survival instincts and single-mindedness. His communication style is short and to the point and asks very few questions. He is the most subconscious and difficult part of myself to access. Only those who have hurt me the most have experienced this side of me.
