Are you kidding? They are the folks who are thinking "s**t, I get to sit her and play with Mama or go down the barber-shop or go buy a lottery ticket, and someone else is paying my monthly check? HAYUL YEAH!!!!"

New numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show the unemployment rate has dropped from 7.9 percent to 7.7 percent.

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 146,000 in November, and the unemployment rate edged down to 7.7 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in retail trade, professional and business services, and healthcare.

Economists had predicted the unemployment rate would go up as a result of Hurricane Sandy. BLS said the storm didn't have a large impact on the new statistics.

Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the Northeast coast...
