Reducing subsidies has real but complicated effects. This is one of them.

Neighbours, nobody loves you like we do.
Neighbors, your government has triumphed in finally making you a public fit
for the 21st century.
Never before has a governing body shown so much concern for the economic
well-being of its subjects.
Today we have insulated you from countless factions who threathens your
financial viability; such as the poor; the idealistic foreigners still
clinging to their childish notions of social welfare; why, you're even kept
uninformed of useless propagandist journalism that reports alleged
violations of human rights (We all know they wouldn't have been punished if
they hadn't been doing something wrong!!). And who better to dispens such
blantently evident factoids but a self-appointed authority like myself?
Acid Rain is a thing of the past... Too many possible causes, too little
signifigance for our modern thinking public, besides industrial
manufacturing is at an all time low anyway, who needs those narrow minded
laborers anyway. Too many mouths to feed, and to many burden on the pay
roll! Who needs 'em? Here in the land of the free-time. Someother ass
back-ward country will give us what we need by exploiting its uneducated
children.

The Internet has expanded our ability to pacify average americans better
than ever by offering fantastical adventures to every corner of the
imagination. Your home office is the window to your world, and the heart of
your social life. Such reclusive behaviour helps clear the roads and public
works from overburden like the lower middle-class and others who depend
shamelessly on their government. Today you are freer than ever to do what
you want, provided you can pay for it!
Remeber, the first word in USA is US
We have arrived neighbours, we are the priviliged elite!

John Deere products have been garbage for years and now they're making it even worse.

Ship all those jobs to mexico and when people get tired of buying a new mower every 2 years and your name recognition won't even let you sell overpriced rusty bullshiat anymore see how that works out for you.

Its going to be hard to care about these factory closings articles in a few years when they'll amount to "Manufacturing Company X closed down a dozen of its facilities today, 10 robot repair people will be laid off as a result."

At my old gig I used to go to Deere and Case factories all the time, and there's a huge amount of hand assembly going on. Robots seem to have taken over painting and maybe some of the cab window installation, but I never saw too many robots in those plants.

Now at my present gig I see robot palletizers in factories everywhere. They seem to be replacing both the old school palletizers and humans stacking boxes on pallets by hand, which is fine, because fark that job.

The first joke my kid learned to tell to aduts at age 5:

"Why was the tractor so sad? He got a John Deere letter."

The jobs gained due to the taxpayers having more money to spend is one of them.

Ex roommate of mine tells me of his dad, who cashed in on the JD retirement before they began a huge round of cutbacks and layoffs.

He chose... wisely.

As in, he was close enough to retirement age to make money, but all the problems began before he would have earned a full retirement.

First joke my kid learned:

"Last night this girl tells me 'I want 12 inches in me and I want to bleed.' So I farked her four times and punched her in the face."
