    No, a bunker will not save you from the apocalypse Everybody talks about the apocalypse, but almost nobody actually prepares for it. But let's say you're one of the few visionaries who actually plans for every eventuality. You've been stashing your supplies. You've built a personal bunker, or you've purchased your own spot in a communal "survival suite." When the apocalypse finally comes — possibly later this year — will you really survive if you're locked inside a bunker? (Answer: No.) Protecting against any 2012 scenario A thriving industry exists to offer structures that will defend against a variety of...

    President Clinton promised the voters last year that if he was elected he would reverse the Republican policies of the past 12 years. Last night, he finally explained the full cost of living up to that promise – a volatile political mix of new taxes and spending cuts on which he is gambling his presidency. Clinton laid out his economic program in a long and diffuse State of the Union Address. He once said he would "focus like a laser beam on the economy," but he used his first speech to a joint session of Congress -- which ran an...

    America's current mass immigration mess is the result of a change in the laws in 1965. Prior to 1965, despite some changes in the 50's, America was a low-immigration country basically living under immigration laws written in 1924. Thanks to low immigration, the swamp of cheap labor was largely drained during this period, America became a fundamentally middle-class society, and our many European ethnic groups were brought together into a common national culture. In some ways, this achievement was so complete that we started to take for granted what we had achieved and forgot why it happened. So in a...

Quayle's golden-boy looks appealed to the cameras, but his verbal missteps quickly attracted the most media attention. Today, politics takes a back seat to business for the former vice president. Quayle, 58, spends much of his time traveling as chairman of the investment firm Cerberus Global Investment.
