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.

The Woman in My Mirror (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

I’m looking at the best of society
Education, health, culture
The best of nurture
Love, family, food
The best of peace
Ambition, good will, freedom
Domestic, at first,
Still the best warrior of the last
You pick your battles wisely
Violence hardly ever used
This land was describe by your body
You are this land
This world
I should hope to have such feminine grace as you
I want to be a woman’s man
With poise, confidence, emotional stability
A woman can lead the mental will of the universe

A man can’t even get past the physical barriers of earth
