Poor ol’ you if you and your family were on Martha’s Vineyard this summer when the Obama horde hit town like an invasion of Huns. The locals were bullied and pushed around like a pack of street vagrants. Even the elite liberal poobahs who populate the Vineyard in the summer got their noses shoved into “the stuff.” The Cape Cod Times reports that business, by example, at Alley’s General Store in West Tisbury was down a whopping 35% due to the road blockages initiated by the kingly entourage. And business at Cape Cod Airfield was hit hard too:
This week, that includes restrictions within 30 nautical miles of Martha’s Vineyard Airport for a host of aeronautical operations up to 18,000 feet. Seaplanes, parachuting, hang gliding, banner towing and sightseeing flights are banned in the area.
Chris Siderwicz Jr., the airport manager of Cape Cod Airfield in Marstons Mills, said the restrictions have grounded his and his father’s biplane tours during the heart of the peak season.
“I’m turning away people’s business every day,” he said. The two also run a business flying advertising banners and have focused their attention on the Plymouth area this week because of the flight restrictions affecting beaches on Nantucket Sound.
“I am losing the local advertising work,” he said.
