Maine’s “Chickadee Check-off” Has the Wrong Name

The State of Maine has an Income Tax check-off where those choosing to make a contribution to efforts to save endangered and threatened wildlife. One of the problems with the Federal version of species protection is their fascist ways of dictating to states certain species that are endangered and threatened and then extorting money from the taxpayers in order to carry out their fascist mandates. This Federal action causes states like Maine to have to resort to bake sales to get money so that the fascists will “match” that money.

However, when Maine people see “Chickadee Checkoff” what are they thinking? Why not change the name to something that actually tells people what it is? Maybe something like, “Endangered Wildlife Protection Fund.”

According to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) website, the checkoff is for “…funding for non-game and endangered and threatened species…”

Oh, it’s not to save the chickadee!!
