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.

Man; (Vincent Pierre Cheramie-Lafayette, LA)
“Why are some men so tall and others so short” thought the blind man
“Why do some words have so many letters and other so few” thought the mute man
“Why do some men have so much to say when others so little” thought the deaf man
“Why are some perfumes so expensive and others so cheap” thought the anosmic man
“Why so some men cry from pain when others don’t at all” thought the paralyzed man
And what did the average man,
the unchallenged man,
What of the man
Who lives this world unrummaged?
Ah well, I’d have to be quite honest
He didn’t have much to think of at all
