TEA Party Patriot Meetings Regarding Border Issues

The public is encouraged to attend both September meetings. This border crisis is going to affect the entire nation, not just the border states,and will be a huge issue in the 2014 elections and probably the 2016 elections. Get informed, get the opinion of those on the front line. The topic for this meeting will be "The Border Crisis, part 1", featuring several DVD videos dealing with the border situation, and featuring a 15-minute video message from Zach Taylor, retired 26-year Border Patrol Officer and past Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers. His message will be not only surprising to most of us, but also quite disturbing!

Free Astrology Talks at the Silver City Public Library
4 September

Get the latest astrological forecast and a much deeper understanding of how astrology really works. Astrology is a tool for conscious living. In a world where our parents, our peers, the media, and social institutions are quick to tell a person what is expected of them and what they should do to conform, there are precious few opportunities to explore and discover the authentic self. Humans are extraordinarily diverse and astrology may be the only model of human behavior that comes close to reflecting the complexity of a person's psyche. In doing so, it validates all forms of human experience and provides a perspective from which to live more fully. Pre-registration for the library events is recommended, as space is limited. Contact Matthew James at mj@apprenticetochiron.com or 928-451-1489 to register or for more information.
