Eagle Ford Helps Fight Terrorists

Thank You to the men and women that work the Eagle Ford. It’s a fact – Our 50 year addiction to foreign oil has lined the pockets of people, countries, and terrorists that hate us.  With US shale plays like Eagle Ford, we are now able to keep our dollars here in the USA and divert them from the terrorists, and countries that hate us.  It gives us the freedom to place embargoes on countries that threaten us. No longer do we have so much pressure to protect our oil interests in those foreign countries – Less dependance on foreign oil is good on so many levels – Thank You Eagle Ford!
