In the very last episode Santos comments to CJ that a 50 cent/gallon gas tax increase would make them look like norwegian socialists. Since the norwegian gas tax excedes 5.40$/gallon, and the american gas PRICE is significantly less, this is obviously a gross overstatement. As a proud norwegian socialist I must say that I am offended by the comparrison, because it tries to make us look whimpy and afraid of taxing pollution.

Hi Norwegian Socialist!

Your absolutely right.

It's a fact that the government in Norway is anything but whimpy when it comes to leveling taxes on the population.

Some people would say the government in one of the world's richest countries are tax-happy, and they are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to tax anything and anyone.
