British Ration Week Episode 2: Food for the Week
InRangeTV


Published on Jan 21, 2018
What does a week's worth of food for two people in World War Two London look like? We bought the whole week's groceries and we will explain what the rations entailed and what we have to work with (this episode was actually filmed the day before the experiment began).

Of course, the typical British family during the war did not have a refrigerator, and the wife would have been shopping for groceries on a daily basis.

Day 2 Menu:

Breakfast: Whole Grain Pancakes, tea
Lunch: Split Pea Soup, bread
Tea: Pumpkin Spice Cookies, tea
Dinner: Spam, Vegetable Mash, ale

British Ration Week Episode 3: Creative Cooking
InRangeTV


Published on Jan 22, 2018
Much of the popular media about wartime rationing spends a lot of time looking at the crazy examples of weird and frightening recipes that appeared during this time - because that's what attracts audience attention. In reality, the strange recipes are not attempts to make terrible foods palatable, but rather attempts to make repetitive ingredients more interesting. Today's Welsh Eggs, for instance, are a way to use powdered eggs in a way that hides their lack of texture.

Day 3 Menu:

Breakfast: Potato, Bacon and Green Onion hash, tea
Lunch: Split Pea Soup (made with Spam instead of bacon)
Tea: Peach Clafouti, tea
Dinner: Welsh Eggs on toast, sauteed kale

Retired Green Beret Warns "The Public's Attention Is Being Diverted From What Is Really Happening"

by Tyler Durden
Mon, 01/22/2018 - 23:55


Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces) via SHTFplan.com,

The Russian surveillance vessel the Viktor Leonov was reportedly leaving the Caribbean over the weekend bound toward the U.S. East Coast. Florida will be reached by next Friday, and before this, the King’s Bay ballistic missile submarine base in Georgia is also along their projected route. This comes on the heels of what has gone largely unreported by the Mainstream Media. On Friday, 1/19/18, a report from U.S. National News emerged, entitled Submarine off of NJ/DE/MD coasts? US Navy deploys NINE Anti-Submarine Aircraft off East Coast Fearing Sub Missile Launch Against US. Here is an excerpt:

The East Coast of the United States may be subjected to attack by submarine launched missile(s) and the US Navy has scrambled NUMEROUS P-8A POSEIDON anti-submarine aircraft, to repeatedly search coastal waters from New York City to Washington, DC ALL DAY Thursday into Thursday Evening.

According to flight records, at least NINE anti-submarine warfare aircraft were sortied Thursday off the US East Coast, and Flight Records show they were engaged in very active hunting for submarine(s) off the East Coast . . .. well WITHIN the 12-mile territorial limit of the United States.

This article has plenty of photos, and some with the locations of CAP (Civil Air Patrol) enlisted to aid the U.S. Navy with the “shortfall” in radar coverage and area surveillance. The article also gives the disposition of numerous aircraft and shows the locations of monitored Russian submarines.



While all of this has been happening, “statesman” Rex Tillerson just came out and declared this at Stanford University on Wed., 1/17/18, as reported by RT News:

"The Japanese… have had over a 100 North Korean fishing boats that have drifted into Japanese waters. Two-thirds of the people on those boats have died.”

"They [The fishermen] are being sent in the wintertime to fish because there are food shortages. And they are being sent out to fish with inadequate fuel to get back. So, we are getting a lot of evidence that these [sanctions] are really starting to hurt."

Honorable Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Pure statesmanship, pure diplomacy? No: pure extortion. This coming from a country (the U.S.) that wanted to depose Assad for the “brutal human rights violations” against civilians…but when it involves the civilians of a country we want to crush…what are a few hundred starving North Korean fisherman’s lives worth? Hey, the sanctions work! We oust leaders for human rights violations, but our policies and sanctions are “humane,” and “altruistic.” Let them join the IMF and World Bank, become a vassal, then they can shop at Costco. Then: let them eat cake!

North Korea has the resolve to see through any paper-tiger sanctions initiated by a country that is a dying empire backed up by a “toothless” UN.

China and Russia have the resolve to be positioning their assets now...prior to the conflict...the war that is forthcoming. It has been reported that the Chinese have moved troops and radiation detectors along their border with North Korea.

Just about a week ago, the RAF had to scramble Typhoons to escort Russian bombers conducting practice runs along the Cold War routes that cover the UK.

A very in-depth article came out that reports Russia and China to be skeptical concerning the U.S.’s gold supply.

Economics is another form of warfare: should they prove the U.S. to not have on hand the gold reserves it claims to have, or (as it states) that the gold is of inferior quality to that traded by the rest of the world? This may very well be the final kicker to persuade nations to distrust the falling Petrodollar and remove the dollar as the World Currency exchange. Such would establish the positions of gold-backed Rubles and Yuan that also have oil to trade, to further bolster that worth on a global economy. For those who still watch television, enjoy your football and the upcoming Olympics.

But keep this in mind: the powers that be will not rest in their inexorable march toward global government.

It would not be the first time that bread and circuses were used to keep the mob entertained...and distracted from the sinister actions and purposes of their leaders and governments. In the meantime, other nations are preparing and positioning their forces, as well as conducting intelligence and surveillance on us...prior to the war that may come anytime.

If the politicians are any indicator of how we’ll fare...the prognosis doesn’t look good. All of it can be avoided with diplomacy, but war is a money-maker, and a game changer for an incumbent whose ratings are flagging. War is their solution. Why? Because they live off our labors and our tax dollars ensure they’ll be safe and sound in their bunkers. Their world: opulent feasts, riches, maintaining power, with armies and unlimited resources...it will remain intact. Ours will not.

British Ration Week Episode 4: The National Loaf
InRangeTV


Published on Jan 23, 2018
One of the major initiatives of the Ministry of Food was ensuring the availability of bread and the supply of wheat to the British Isles. To help stretch the use of wheat, a national bread recipe was instituted, using minimally processed brown flour. This was not a particularly appealing item to most of the British populace, used to highly refined fluffy white bread - but they accepted it as a necessity of war. Interestingly, the National Loaf was not that unlike today's whole wheat breads which are so popular for their better nutritional value than WonderBread.

Day 4 Menu:

Breakfast: Cheese toast, tea
Lunch: Cheese and Tomato Sandwich, pickle, leftover split pea soup
Tea: Beetroot pudding, tea
Dinner: Leek and Hamburger Gravy over toast

British Ration Week Episode 5: Woolton Pie
InRangeTV


Published on Jan 24, 2018
The Minister of Food who was really the heart of the rationing program was Frederick Marquis, Lord Woolton. A prominent businessman who entered government as a political novice when the war began, Woolton took his responsibility as a charge not simply to ensure that Britain survived the war, but as a mission to use the opportunity to improve public health, particularly among the lower classes. He was a refreshing example of a political figure who eschewed personal power and political strife in favor of the betterment of his society.

The head chef of the Savoy Hotel created a wartime dish which they named Woolton Pie after the Minister of Food, and which has become an excellent example of the whole rationing program in microcosm.

Woolton Pie (makes 1 pie):
½ lb potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled and cut into chunks
½ lb carrots, washed and sliced
½ lb cauliflower, broken into chunks
½ lb swedes (rutabagas), peeled and cut into chunks
3-4 green onions (we used a quarter leek, both white and green), sliced
1 tsp vegetable extract*
1 tsp oatmeal **

Preheat oven to 350. Add all vegetables to a saucepan and just cover with water. Simmer until tender, approximately 10-15 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid. Put vegetables in a pie plate and add half the reserved liquid. Cover with a pastry or potato crust and bake until crust is golden brown.

Use the remaining liquid to make a gravy for serving:in a saucepan, bring liquid to a boil; in a separate cup, mix about 2 T flour with ½ c water and slowly add mixture to boiling liquid whisking constantly. Season liberally with salt and pepper.

* I don’t know what vegetable extract is, but I’m assuming something similar to bouillon cubes. We didn’t have those, so I just used turkey stock instead of water to cook the vegetables.
** This is supposed to thicken the liquid into a gravy. It doesn’t.


Day 5 Menu:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with raisins, tea
Lunch: Beans with Bacon, Skillet Biscuits
Tea: Bread Pudding, tea
Dinner: Woolton Pie, ale

British Ration Week Episode 6: Cafeterias & Restaurants
InRangeTV


Published on Jan 25, 2018
One of the Food Ministry's programs during the war was the creation of the British Restaurants - cafeteria like establishments which offered a hot 3-course meals for just a few pence and without the use of any ration coupons. More than 2000 would be established by the end of the war, and eating out exploded in popularity among the British population because of them. The food was often not exciting, but it was hot, cheap, and readily available.

Private restaurants were able to remain open and in business through the war, but were restricted in several key ways to ensure that they did not become a loophole in rationing for the wealthy. A restaurant could serve only 3 courses, only one could include meat, and a limit was put on what could be charged for a meal.

Day 6 Menu:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with jam, tea
Lunch: Liver, onions and kale
Tea: Leftover Peach Clafouti, tea
Dinner: Lamb Pasties with Gravy

British Ration Week Episode 7: Black Markets and Luxuries
InRangeTV


Published on Jan 26, 2018
One would expect a strict rationing program like the British instituted to create a massive black market - as indeed happened in France and Germany at the same time. Remarkably, this did not happen. There were of course violations of the rationing and people who either cheated or exploited the system, but no organized substantial black market ever developed. This can be seen as a credit to the British population's sincere willingness to sacrifice for the war effort, but it is also deeply rooted in the several key decisions and successes by Lord Woolton and his Ministry.

The rationing was enforced across class lines (even the King and Queen legitimately participated), and being seen as truly egalitarian reinforced public willingness to obey the rules. In addition, the Ministry of Food was able to successfully ensure that the rations promised were always available. One did not have to rush to get a share of a shipment of bacon or eggs or sugar - there was always enough to meet the needs of the ration, and the significance of this cannot be underestimated.

Day 7 Menu:

Breakfast: Skillet Biscuits with cheese, tea
Lunch: Fried Vegetable Fritters with leftover gray
Tea: Tea, leftover skillet biscuits
Dinner: Pheasant, sweet potatoes

Preparing for the Inevitable American Gun Ban- Part 1, by Rector
By SurvivalBlog Contributor | February 1, 2018 - 7:03 am | February 1, 2018


A full gun ban in the United States is inevitable. Any honest reading of the cultural, legal, and demographic trends in the United States will confirm this thesis– the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall be infringed, and we will lose our firearms.

Many of you are rightfully rejecting my premise and doing so on solid intellectual ground: the 2nd Amendment, the Heller decision, the rise of concealed carry, the election of Trump, and the power of the NRA. These are formidable weapons in the fight to retain our rights. Yet, ultimately, we will lose the fight because this isn’t your grandfather’s America anymore.

The ban will be gradually implemented, popularly supported, and “legal”. You will have a choice to make– obey the law or become a felon. That decision will change your relationship with the government permanently. If you comply, you risk exposure to crime and unlawful government force. If you resist, you will become an outlaw. This article seeks to prepare you for that fateful day.


The Culture is Changing, Permanently
The fountainhead of Western Civilization is the Judeo-Christian worldview. This ethical foundation of natural law, including the right of self-defense, recognizes inalienable rights bestowed upon men by God. The Judeo-Christian ethic was revealed to man through the Hebrew Bible and forms a belief system that acknowledges God’s authority over the state and the body of law. As long as the king is subordinate to God, the law will reflect His character and His principles, including the right to lawful self-defense.

Biblical Christianity No Longer Forms American World View
But Biblical Christianity no longer forms the world view of the American people. The State has assumed God’s rightful role as the source of truth, and as a result the law has become disconnected from its founding principles. The leftist political indoctrination that passes for education in our society confirms this secular world view in the minds of an ignorant populous. In short, there is no longer a consensus around the principles that support the rights of an armed populace; the foundations have been destroyed. We are already in the minority.

Secularization/Multiculturalism of Our Culture
The increasing secularization of our culture (or its evil twin– “multiculturalism”) are bringing our laws into alignment with the body of law seen across the rest of the world. Guns are heavily controlled or outright banned in every major civilization, from the Islamic world to the Far East and from South America to Europe and Australia. No society that has adopted a secular or non-Christian world view retains the right to bear arms. In these societies firearms are managed in the same manner as illegal narcotics. As our society adopts these secular ethics, our laws will go the same way.

The Post-Constitutional Legal Environment
The Second Amendment will provide diminishing protection as the judiciary and citizenry ignore the plain language of the Constitution. While the recent Heller decision was encouraging, we remain only one Supreme Court vote away from a reversal of that decision. Imagine if Hillary had won the last election, replaced Scalia with another Ginsburg, and then had had the opportunity to replace two more justices. That death blow was only avoided by the thinnest of margins in 2016. Can we depend on the Electoral College in 2020 or 2024 to protect the RKBA from an activist judiciary forever?

Constitutional Language Never Prevented Infringement
Sadly, the plain language of our Constitution has never fully prevented infringement, if the courts and society are willing to selectively ignore the Bill of Rights. To wit:

  1. The last declared war in accordance with Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution was World War II. Since then we have been involved in endless war across the globe.
  2. The powers of the U.S. Supreme Court are listed in Article III, Section 2. There is no mention of the courts judging the constitutionality of laws and regulations in Article III of the U.S. Constitution. This has been the gateway to “evolving interpretation” of the law, which allows for grossly unconstitutional provisions to be perpetuated in “case law” or precedent. The English language doesn’t require “interpretation”, and yet the entire judicial system has been corrupted by this insidious process. New constitutional “rights” (i.e. abortion, separation of church and state) are created, and enumerated rights are ignored or “reinterpreted”.
  3. The 4th Amendment clearly prohibits the warrantless, unreasonable seizure of property, and yet “civil asset forfeiture” is a widely accepted practice among police departments.
  4. During World War II, the U.S. government rounded up ethnic Japanese citizens of the United States en masse and interned them in prison camps without charges, trial, or justification.

Our constitutional “rights” are only as good as our willingness to insist upon their preeminence and enforcement. Clearly, Americans are comfortable with “unconstitutional” when it suits their purposes. This will only get worse.

Shall Not Be Infringed?
Despite the plain language of the 2nd Amendment, including “shall not be infringed”, we are buried in Federal gun laws and have been since the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1934. The years that followed have seen the passage of the Federal Firearms Act of 1938, The Gun Control Act of 1968, the Law Enforcement Officers Protection Act of 1986, the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993, the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994, among others. We now accept as part of “shall not be infringed” a mountain of non-statutory Federal regulations via the BATFE and other agencies of the Federal government. No other “constitutional right” is subject to so narrow an interpretation as the 2nd Amendment. By what future mechanism would this trend be reversed? What future Congress will repeal these laws?

The Unthinkable Premise
The primary purposes of the 2nd Amendment was as a bulwark against the establishment of tyrannical government, a citizen’s veto. Let us put it in the simplest terms: the founding fathers sought to guarantee American’s ability to fight a future government. This could only be accomplished by the armed citizenry (the militia) shooting those who would violate the inalienable rights of the citizens.

How does that premise sound rolling off the tongue in 2018? The majority of our citizens view such an idea as a relic of the past at best, or seditious, at worst. Do you think such a view is widely held among urban police forces? Suburban kindergarten moms? Government bureaucrats? Welfare state beneficiaries? It is safe to say that most Americans are not stockpiling weapons and ammunition just-in-case they are called upon to fight a revolution against tyranny. We have forgotten our heritage, and the inexorable march towards totalitarianism is well advanced. How many years until a campaign to repeal the 2nd Amendment is seriously proposed? If your plan to keep your guns relies on the 2nd Amendment, you need another plan.

Demographics Is Destiny
More than any other factor, the inevitable death of the RKBA is ensured by the changing demographics of the United States. Three demographic trends are permanently altering the political landscape: third world immigration, the passing of the Greatest Generation and Baby Boomers, and the political shift to the left.

Immigration Trends
America has always been a nation of immigrants. In the nineteenth century, most immigrants came from Europe and brought with them the Judeo-Christian ethic. More importantly, early immigrants to the United States assimilated into our distinct American culture and, for the most part, adopted the social morays and cultural affinities of their new homeland. Often these immigrants were escaping totalitarianism, religious oppression, or economic collapse and were eager to become Americans.

Beginning in the late 20th century immigration patterns and attitudes began to change. By design, the majority of immigrants were coming from Central and South America, East Asia, and the Middle East. The top 10 sending countries in 2014/2015 were: Mexico, China, India, Philippines, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Iraq, El Salvador, and Pakistan. To make matters worse, under the banner of multiculturalism, assimilation is now discouraged, or in the case of Muslim communities, opposed.

From Melting Pot to Salad Bowl
The “melting pot” has become a “salad bowl”. The overwhelming majority of these immigrants are politically aligned with the American left and leftist ideology opposed to individual liberty. Rather than being taught about the benefits of individual liberty, they are importing the ideologies that made their home countries such “fantastic” places to live.

Birth/Death
Contributing to this demographic change is the passing of the Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers, who are now aged 55 to 75. This voting block represented the margin of victory that delivered “conservative” majorities that we now enjoy. However, the next decade will replace half of these voters with a new crop of functional illiterates born around 2008. The resulting shift to the political left will be more than enough to change the balance of power in the U.S. A single statistic courtesy of the Pew Research Center tells the story in 2015: Americans ages 50+ were 76.5% non-Hispanic whites. In the same year children nine years old and under were 50.5% non-Hispanic whites. By 2025, 50% of eligible new voters will be non-Hispanic whites. If the voting patterns of the last 60 years continue into the future, the Democrats will control the Federal government for generations.

The Political Shift Left: Et Tu, Texas?
Much like the American Redoubt, my home state of Texas is a considerable conservative enclave within the United States. With 38 electoral votes, Texas is second only to California in the Electoral College. It is considered by most Americans as Deep Red country, with strong conservative majorities at the Federal and State level. But voting patterns in Texas are changing. Due to legal and illegal immigration, the graying of white America, and the increasing urbanization of the Texas population, it is projected that Texas will be a blue state in 2028. This single demographic shift is sufficient to permanently change the results of Presidential Elections past 2028. If Texas only has a decade remaining, how long until your state is blue?

U.S. Surveillance Grid is Crafted Nationally toward Global Integration

Jeremiah Johnson
February 5th, 2018
SHTFplan.com




Most of the time a headline is not enough, nor even a “wake-up” call from a Julian Assange or an Edward Snowden. Many times, the headlines or warnings are buried beneath a plethora of duplicitous distractions crafted by the Mainstream Media (MSM) that are tabloid in nature: sensationalism, not focused and objective reporting. But the passage of time tends to turn the conscientious into dullards and dim the memories until they are forgotten.

We all know how October 1, 2016, Obama turned over control of the Internet to ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). Do you know what their slogan is? “One World, One Internet.”

Using the “social needs” portion of the Hierarchy of Needs pyramid…to foster groupthink and group cooperation, all of American society (from birth to death) is precisely controlled and funneled into a system that will enable the docility of subjects (citizens, if you prefer) and their transition into the global governance and the New World Order (NWO).

Here is a statement made by an ICANN board member regarding the transition from U.S. government control to “stewardship” by a corporation that is supposedly an NPO (Non-Profit Organization). Take note of the language.

“This transition was envisioned 18 years ago, yet it was the tireless work of the global Internet community, which drafted the final proposal, that made this a reality,” said ICANN Board Chair Stephen D. Crocker. “This community validated the multistakeholder model of Internet governance. It has shown that a governance model defined by the inclusion of all voices, including business, academics, technical experts, civil society, governments and many others is the best way to assure that the Internet of tomorrow remains as free, open and accessible as the Internet of today.”

As can be seen, the singsong language contradicts itself: “…multistakeholder model of Internet governance…” “…a governance model…,” “…the best way to assure…” “…the Internet of tomorrow remains as free…as the Internet of today.”

The word “free” is used to describe the Internet in the same sentence as “Internet governance.” No liberty there…except the liberties they take in “taking care of all of this for us,” while they “take care of us,” no doubt. Games. Games played by the stakeholders. Multistakeholder? Would that be Prof. Van Helsing in Dracula? Or is it referring to the usual “conga line” of nabobs, such as oligarchs and their front-corporations, and the politicos. The sacred triumvirate of power-broker billionaires to own it all, elected thieves enriched by the billionaires to place it into law that oligarchs and politicos own and control it, and the religious silver-tongued swami’s (pick any denomination) to soothe the serfs and use sacred scripts to assure a smoothly-sailing servitude, with no say-so.

So, the current model of Internet governance assures us that the Internet will always be free…and that is why ICANN currently has one of their main offices in Beijing, right next to State Security of the People’s Republic of China.

Look deeply, and you can see it. A few years ago, L-1 Identity Solutions was tasked with the creation of biometric systems for passports and driver’s licenses by the U.S. government. Let’s take a quote out of Wikipedia to see what L-1 does:

“L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. is a large American defense contractor in Connecticut. It was formed on August 29, 2006, from a merger of Viisage Technology, Inc. and Identix Incorporated. It specializes in selling face recognition systems, electronic passports such as Fly Clear, and other biometric technology to governments such as the United States and Saudi Arabia. It also licenses technology to other companies internationally, including China.”

How nice: multistakeholders, again. But wait! There’s more! L-1 isn’t L-1 any longer: it was bought by Safran in 2011 for about $1 billion. This is a French company…a multi-subsidiary holding company, to be exact. “Identity management” is one of the cards they hold in their deck of activities. So, what about L-1 of Connecticut? Well, it shifted into Morpho, the security and identity division of Safran. And then Morpho “morphed” into OT (Oberthur Technologies) Morpho, still specializing in the digital security and biometrics as before.

But the big news in all of this is that an international firm has bought an American firm that is responsible for biometric and digital data in U.S. passports and driver’s licenses.

In the past two weeks we saw the introduction of H.R. Bill 4760, that includes detailed and lengthy provisions for what amounts to the establishment of national ID cards and passports that ensure complete control of citizens before they exit the borders of the United States.

All these activities point toward a subtle movement and integration of the U.S. into an international interdependency that will eventually lead to all U.S. economic, social, and infrastructure systems being placed under foreign control…toward the abolition of American sovereignty and the destruction of U.S. borders, language, culture, and way of government.

By performing such actions slowly and incrementally, it keeps the activities out of the public eye and the forefront of scrutiny. Work, taxation, consumption, and entertainment…THX-1138 ad infinitum…until cage has been completely constructed. The power-brokers, oligarchs, nabobs, and religious leaders all have assured themselves a “seat at the table” after the United States is carved up, subjugated, and reduced in numbers.

To paraphrase their own words: governance to assure freedom.

You know, governance: all with the barrel of a gun to “help you with your compliance” in the same manner as the governing authorities “assure your freedom.” Night and day, they’re working nonstop to close the cage and implement these systems…while also working to maintain the stultifying theatrics of the Super Bowl, movies to escape from reality, and tabloid non-news to shape and mold public opinion.

Governments, politicians, corporations, and oligarchs do not do these types of things for no reason. Frog in the kettle. They are implementing a global system of surveillance and control, and the United States is the final obstacle for that global governance. The result will not be smiling stewardship…it will be totalitarianism with teeth…. rule by force, not government by consent. Malthus, More, Marx…and “1984” by Orwell will be only fictitious in the scope of the narrative. The existence of the totalitarian State and all its facets described will be a reality, and when it’s in place, that boot Orwell imagined may very well be trampling upon the face of humanity forever.

What would happen if Prisoners were released en masse? - Prison Talk 13.20
Fresh Out- Life After The Penitentiary


Published on Feb 5, 2018
In 2017 we collaborated with The Canadian Prepper. He had several questions regarding Prison and Prisoners in a doomsday type scenario. In this mini series you will get Big Herc's take on what life would be like in a Doomsday Scenario.

Question 2 questions:
If prisoners were released under these conditions (SHTF situation), what do you think the consequences on the surrounding region would be? Would those prisoners fair better or worse than the average person if their were no rules in society? How should people prepare for the mass emancipation of hardened criminals in these conditions?

Tune in to find out what Big Herc has to say about this!

The Flu Is Killing 4,000 per week - Should You Be Staying Home?
FullSpectrumSurvival


Published on Feb 12, 2018
With the H3N2 variation of the Influenza Virus killing 4,000 per week, hospitalizing hundreds of thousands, and acting at pandemic levels, should you start thinking about when to stay home? When to call in sick from work, and how you and your family will react to a real biological threat?

There is no reason to panic at the level that the flu is at right now, but there is a reason to act cautiously. You should not be doing things that make you a statistic just like you should not be smoking if you don't want to be a statistic of lung disease or drinking and driving if you don't want to be a statistic of drunk driving car accidents.

What measures am I taking and how I boost my immune system to limit my exposure to the flu and to boost my ability to fight it off.

What are your thoughts and what are you doing to not get sick?
