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.

I Am Sitting Here All Depressed (Jason Smith- Lafayette, LA)
I am sitting here all depressed,
Wondering how I got into this mess.
Did not see what was wrong with me,
I thought you were the answer praise to thy.
I wonder if you know to this day,
How happy I am that you are gay.
To have someone so young and smart,
Gave new found meaning to my heart.
Oh baby don’t you know,
That you are sweet like newly fallen snow.
I wish I was there to give you a hand,
Because that’s what I do if I was your man.
I wish I was stronger then I am,
Then maybe I could pull myself out of this jam.
It is bad enough to be lonely and gay,
Then to have your heart and love just ripped away.
To then have your career pulled out from you,
It is like bend over your getting screwed.
If I did not care for my family and friends,
I would find a means to put this to an end.
But they say that if you do,
Then your soul is eternally screwed.
So now I sit here alone and wonder,
Would I be better six feet under?
