Calm the hell down
The following are not currently, or in the near future, threats to the United States of America.
You are not going to get Ebola. Infection requires direct exposure to bodily fluids and the virus is not present in this country. Ebola is a significant problem and causing great misery, but that’s in Africa, not here.
ISIS cannot attack the United States. Sure, individual members of ISIS might be able to get into the country, though that would be difficult, and commit a terrorist attack, but then that’s not especially difficult for Al Qaeda or any other terrorist group and they haven’t managed it. As for an actual military attack, the odds of ISIS, which has no actual country, air force or navy, attacking us are exactly 0%. Sheesh, the NAZIS couldn’t attack the US and you’re worried that ISIS can?
Get a grip, Americans.
