Skype Goes Big Brother, Allowing Police to Monitor Text Chats


Wednesday, 01 August 2012

‘Long sought and used as a communications tool beyond the reach of Big Brother’s probing eyes, Skype has recently announced the company plans more cooperation with police, to include sharing of text chats.

Infant beverages have been set twice as higher as the nuclear waste limit and for children and adults between 3 to 4 times the nuclear waste limit. In food the limit has been set up to 20 times international nuclear waste limits and of course all of these levels are hundreds of times higher than legal limits allowed in food in beverages of other nations around the world.

Yet, Japanese officials continue their campaign of lying to the public, as you’ll see in the video below, to convince the people these limits are safe.’
