I told you guys to jump into the market when he got sworn in.

Trump is a winner, plain and simple.

I guess some people on here just like to bitch and complain rather than make money.

Too bad!

The numbers are still fake/revised from old standards so no reason to tout them IMO.

IMO you don't need "numbers". Just drive around town and see all the Now Hiring signs that weren't there a couple years ago. And check the job ads online like cragslist. More jobs now. Lots more.

Speaking of jobs, I remember back around 08-09 I was unemployed (aside from a of security gig) it was hard as fuck finding a job. The are on Craigslist and the employment office were sparse and shit. I was one of the lucky ones to land a job in 2009. One of my friends was also unemployed and had to move back to Utah to live with his mom.

did they go back and change all the charts prior to 1994 (including the labor participation charts) and purge all old charts?

I'm also skeptical as to how one accurately measures "short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers" or if it even matters.  Even if you could accurately define and count them I don't see why they should be considered as "unemployed"

Still waiting for Joe to explain why he started this thread

why the big celebration over the 63.1% number?

Yes but it was so bad it really had nowhere else to go. It's good now and I predict it will get even better. Sad there are so many able bodied people who don't want to work but that's another issue.

You "suppose"? Why else wouldn't it be a good thing? But then again I "suppose" you want most government stepping in and taking over people's lives by being more dependent on it. Don't show me bullshit graphs either.
