Please stop. You're understanding on every aspect you mention in your post is ignorant.
I'm going to just point to your most egregious errors.

"It's hard to be virulent and deadly at the same time."
wrong. a 'long' incubation period is all you need.

"The dead aren't that great at walking around and infecting people."
People showing symptoms ARE great at walking around an infecting people.
The dead, OTOH, don't walk around, but they need to be handles, and the dead exude a LOT of body fluids.

. In order to catch Ebola, you have to come in contact with bodily fluids sweat, saliva, vomit, or diarrhea
Was the person sitting on the airline seat before you sweating?
While it does spread as easy as the flu, it's not exactly hard to transmit either.

"As far as a threat to us in the west though? No"
I wouldn't say no. I would say unlikely. In the US there are communities that would be a great incubation for an outbreak.

Of course, if it gets too bad, and it will without proper action, there will be secondary and tertiary effects. Disease from people dying, people fleeing, ports closed, etc.

I hope there would be a call for everyone to stay home in any area with an outbreak. A plan for getting those people food, and money.
The only people out should be EMT and people going to a local clinic set up just for people with symptoms.,

Sadly, I think that if it happened now, we would be in a situation where people staying home would end up causing them to loose their home due to a lack of income, and any calls to help those people would be met by Neo-Con hate.

  Jesus replied, “And why do you, by your traditions, violate the direct commandments of God? 4 For instance, God says, ‘Honor your father and mother,’[a] and ‘Anyone who speaks disrespectfully of father or mother must be put to death.’[b] 5 But you say it is all right for people to say to their parents, ‘Sorry, I can’t help you. For I have vowed to give to God what I would have given to you.’ 6 In this way, you say they don’t need to honor their parents.[c] And so you cancel the word of God for the sake of your own tradition.

He is calling them hypocrites becasue they found a way around killing kids for not respecting their parents.
Think about that.

Because you seem simple:
He was calling them hypocrites for NOT KILLING CHILDREN.

God is real, unless declared integer.
