  Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is a slave narrative that was published in 1861 by Harriet Ann Jacobs, using the pen name "Linda Brent." The book is an in-depth chronological account of Jacobs's life as a slave, and the decisions and choices she made to gain freedom for herself and her children. It addresses the struggles and sexual abuse that young women slaves faced on the plantations, and how these struggles were harsher than what men suffered as slaves. The book is considered sentimental and written to provoke an emotional response and sympathy from the reader toward slavery in general and slave women in particular for their struggles[citation needed], with rape, the pressure to have sex at an early age, the selling of their children, and the treatment of female slaves by their mistresses.

Amazon has a ton of books that Prime members can get for free for use on iPad or any computer, actually.  I just read Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl  (which Wikipedia excerpt appears above).  What is compelling about it is the mind boggling literary gift  Harriet Jacobs had.  I mean, she was self taught to read by her grandmother, and her  depictions of Southern life and customs  during the early 19th century are riveting, at least I found them so.  All of the characters are real, and are identified in the Wikipedia narrative. 

While I was reading Slave Girls, I was also reading

 Also free in any number of formats.  Elegantly writ by a participant in the battle, and just the  first of  several short stories.  Free is good.  Good and Free is great.

There was a Congressman named Weiner,
Who had a perverted demeanor.
Forced from the Hill, for acting like Bill,
Now Congress is one Weiner leaner.

  Following the bread crumb trail of FEMA orders, retired State Senator Sheldon R. Songstad of South Dakota State issued an “Emergency Fema Region 3 Alert!!!,” on August 13th.

Region three is comprised of; Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Songstad’s research turned up some very interesting facts. Each item on its own could go unnoticed, but the collective facts may be worthy of your attention and scrutiny. The U.S. government appears to be preparing for a major event. It appears that this event is being staged for approximately Oct. 1st. Let’s look at the numbers and dates.

UN Peacekeepers began training the 4th week of July and will complete their nine week training by October 1st. They are learning English, as well as US weapon systems and Urban Warfare training.

How many troops are training? 386,000 troops!

In today's climate reports like this from The Sleuth Journal (which has a sober appearance) deserve vetting. Well, sober if you discount that Sleuth Journal are  9/11 Truthers. A Google search on "386,000 UN troops" yields "About 128,000 results."  Ahem.

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards." They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbour" and "Lose."

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is (continued)
