6. Interesting that there is no longer a mention of Communism

They use to label everything socialism And communism. The 2 words were used interchangeably and really had no meaning except for being a more liberal take on helping the middle class or poor.

Now it is socialism all the time. Why did they drop the communism? Is it that it is a reminder of the USSR and a Russia shorty Putin is working hard to bring back? Communism and Russia use to be something worse than socialism. Now it's pretty well not an issue.

I wonder if we would be having theses problems with shorty Putin and his Russian mobsters if we had given Russia the loans they needed when the USSR collapsed? Hindsight is 20/20.
