 We have a small publication that we provide FREE for our community called The Catron County Warrior. We have only put out 2 issues to get a feel for whether or not it will be accepted by the community. A man sent us an e-mail regarding the Warrior this afternoon. Well, check it out...
I was excited to see this.  I feel there is a lack of news of local county news.  After reading this i was very dissapointed.  What we need here is an actuall news letter.  Not political rehteric.  All that I took away from your supposed "newsletter" is hopefully all the new Republicans are going to save the world and if not you better get ready and start buying food and guns, and go to our seminar where were going to tell you to do the same thing.  If the things you say in this news letter are true I'd be truly scared but there not.  If you wanna be taken seriously tell us news not what has been in the last two issues.  Any half intelligent will see this for what it is a biased publication desinged on spreading fear to generate profits for there company.  You have a good idea we need a county news letter but not the kind your publishing.

Carl L.                   ************************************************
Mr. L,
If you need an actual newsletter, perhaps you should publish one. No where in the latest issue of the Warrior is the word "newsletter" mentioned. I have made no implication that was my intention in fact, on the back page, I clearly state what the 3 roles of the Warrior are. The first one is simply to provide information on community events and local news. We are not news reporters, Mr. L and we will depend on people to submit information if they want it published. We will not go looking for it.
In the absence of submitted news or information, we will move to the 2nd role of the Warrior which is to provide information and entertainment regarding firearms, ballistics, laws, firearms training, defensive weapons, disaster preparedness, wilderness survival, hunting, fishing, politics and a host of politically incorrect issues. That's what we do Mr. L. We made that abundantly clear and if that is not your cup of tea, please don't pour yourself any.
The third role of the Warrior is also shamelessly listed on the last page which states: "Last but certainly not least, the WARRIOR will be a means for SWSA to relay information about our store. Keeping you informed about sales, new products, gun shows, seminars and our training schedule helps you and us." Capitalism is alive and well for the time being in spite of your president and his ilk trying to destroy it. If you have a business and you want to go to the trouble and expense of publishing your own little paper to promote it, you have our complete support and blessing.
As far as our Disaster Preparedness seminar, it too is free, sir. Anyone that attends has nothing but time invested in it and they are free to come and go as they please. You are very much in the minority if you do not believe that we are in for some hard times. You, sir, and those like you, will become a threat to those of us that have had the foresight to prepare and make some attempt to provide for our families. I hope, for your sake, that you understand the gravity of that situation.
The Warrior is free Mr. L. If you don't want to read it, don't pick up another one. Being as how this is only the second issue, we don't expect that a whole lot of people are aware of it yet and we are committed to publishing 6 issues at which time we will decide if we want to continue. So far, the good comments and support that we have received vastly out weigh the one derogatory comment that we have received... yours, Mr. L.
I am not trying to spread fear, sir. People are scared already and are looking for solutions. YOU are the one who is scared and you have arrived at that without our help. After muddling through your misspellings, lack of punctuation and 3rd grade grammar, you have driven home, once again, a point that liberals never fail to leave with me. Liberal minds do not have the capacity to understand or accept reality and truth. They cannot comprehend the written word because you cannot see through your own bias and hatred. I have been straight-forward with everything that is in the Warrior and nothing will change in it. We will publish 4 more issues before we consider whether or not to continue. Whatever happens, Mr. L, will happen regardless of whether you approve or not.
I invite you to attend our seminar on 29 January and see if you come away with the same attitude that you have now about preparedness.

I know that you will not pick up another copy of the Warrior and that is a shame because you will probably see both sides of this correspondence in the next issue. I will, of course, leave out your name to protect your privacy. No one will know who you are except you and me.
You have a great New Year!
