Do you sleep? You
shouldn't. Let me tell you why sleep is one of the most insidious
evils ever devised. Bruno Hauptmann, kidnapper and killer of
the Lindbergh baby, admitted to police that at the time the crime was
committed, he was asleep. He said he was innocent, but let me ask
you, if he was asleep, how did he know he was innocent?
Charles Manson told
police that at the time of the Sharon Tate killings he was asleep.
Timothy McVeigh, before blowing up the Oklahoma City Federal
Building, had a full 8 hours sleep. Have I given enough examples, or
do you want more? Okay, Susan Smith, who drowned her children,
regularly slept six to eight hours per night. So did Hitler. And so
did John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated President Lincoln. For the
love of God people, do not sleep!
let's discuss the satellites in space that can not only see into your
homes, but can see into your mind. You don't believe it? Think about
this: the police can come to you any time and see into your home.
They don't need a billion dollar satellite orbiting earth to do so.
All they have to do is knock on your door and force their way in. But
what they can't do is see into your mind. That's where satellites
come in. If you think you've had a thought that isn't recorded and
printed out for some CIA or CIC or FBI agent to read, think again.
These satellites even print out thoughts you didn't know you had! The
dossier on you gets larger every day, yet you just sit there laughing
at me. So be it, it's your life. But let me ask this: Why do you
think the police HAVEN'T come to your door? Because they
I've tried to alert you to the dangers you face. You can take my
advice or leave it, it's entirely up to you. All I know is, I don't
sleep, I live in a lead-shielded room, and I wear my lead-foil
cap at all times. No government is going to get into MY thoughts, no
sir, no sir.
