(NaturalNews) Now that government agencies are branding animal rights and ecological activists as "eco-terrorists," what should anyone who attacks junk food with a machete be called - a foodie terrorist?
The Yuma Sun of Yuma, AZ recently reported an episode of an unidentified man barging into a gas station with a convenience store wielding a machete. He was wearing dark clothing and had a dark bandana wrapped around his face to conceal his identity.
But he was described as somewhat short with a dark complexion and weighing around 160 pounds. His demeanor was menacing, but he attacked no one. Instead he started yelling "your momma" (or yo' momma) and began slashing open junk food items on display.
Then he quickly ran off and disappeared without demanding or taking money and merchandise. There seems to be no trace of him or anyone that could be him. There aren't even any suspects.
The article in the Yuma Sun newspaper's online edition attracted mostly light-hearted comments, such as: "He may have taken Michelle Obama's campaign against junk food too seriously," or "He was obviously upset that Natures Express closed..."
Indeed, a decent low priced natural fast food restaurant had closed just prior to the incident. Nature's Express was founded by practicing oncologist Dr. Carl Meyers in 2008. The Berkley, CA Nature's Express still thrives with the expectation of a new menu. There should be more of the same throughout the country.
Yuma is located in the extreme Southwest corner of Arizona, bordering Baja, Mexico, and California. Maybe the mysterious junk food machete attacker was not a foodie terrorist, but merely a Mexican drug cartel wannabe. Or maybe he was a loony vandalizing illegal immigrant.
Many border residents aren't buying the Federal government press releases that claim there shouldn't be any concern of violence from the flood of illegal immigrants or Mexican drug cartels.
There have been current episodes of unusual theft and vandalism not attributable to locals in Southern Arizona ranches, and local law enforcement officials have been threatened by Mexican drug cartels. But illegal aliens and Mexican drug cartel violence can't be blamed for Yuma's inability to support their only healthy fast food restaurant.
Even with a population of around 95,000 and double that number county wide plus winter resident and tourist population spikes, it appears that Yuma is no country for healthy fast food restaurants. Attacking junk food won't change that.
