Gangs soliciting money for protection?

My mother lives in Toledo and one of her neighbors said she heard gangs are soliciting money fir protection, She said for $50 / month they would protect you and your property. I was appalled by this but then I gave it some thought and I think that is a small price to pay for protection with the upcoming police layoffs. There is a large number of Toledoans
scared so it is not so hard to believe.

Pope's new crusade to take Jerusalem

The Israelis are insane to permit the pagan pope to pollute the Holy Land of Israel! Of course, it's treacherous vultures like Shimon Peres, collaborators, who welcome the bloody representative of the Vatican to the Jewish homeland - not normal Jews.

A truly self-respecting Jewish nation wouldn't let the pagan pope step foot in the Holy Land of Israel unless he was bringing the Temple treasures and Judaica the Vatican holds hostage with him.

President Barack Obama has turned fearmongering into an art form. He has repeatedly raised the specter of another Great Depression. Now he promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.

He pressed for this stimulus to be done now! Is Obama still in campaign / rhetoric mode?
