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.

Love Spent (James Leland Ludeau- Lafayette, LA)
Love spent That's how you left me Blindsided Alone on the floor Emptied of emotion Barren of feeling And if you'd held me as tightly as you grasped at my money We might've made it But you pretended And I paid And I paid in more ways than I realized at the time Love spent Broken Bent Twisted Angry Confused And I will sweep up my pieces Rebuild Continue on my journey I invested so much in us That I lost me You gained I lost You tried in vain to capture my Light A vampire of my energy I'm love spent Don't trust in it anymore And the only love I seek these days Will be the love I have of myself It's a Leo's greatest strength after all So leave Go Take what you've gained I can smile knowing its not yours to hold really And you'll lose it someday The universe will see to that
