“PRECIOUS” SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE WELFARE SYSTEM
We were impressed with an observation that the NY Post’s Andrea Peyser made about the Oscar nominated movie “Precious.” She pointed out that you don’t often see movies coming out of left-leaning Hollywood that show the results of welfare dependency in a BAD light. The agonizing story of teenage Precious features her sadistic mother, played by Mo’Nique, who won’t leave the house as long as her monthly checks arrive. The dysfunctional family knows all the tricks to maximize their government assistance. Andrea points out that the REAL villain in this movie is the SYSTEM that rewards horrendous behavior while financially punishing those who are productive. How right she is.
