Laptops, Johnstone and GOD-Nation
by Bill Bolton, July 30, 2006
In Cobb County Georgia, the school
board was trying to provide laptop
computers for all their students.
The students could even take the
Kathie Johnstone, a school board member,
spearheaded the project which eventually
died because of several factors.
She is now running for re-election in the
Republican primary against a Reverend Crooks.
Reverend Crooks is an associate pastor
at Roswell Street Baptist Church, a large
church in Marietta.
Laptop Project Enveloped in Secrecy
Underlying the laptop was the
element of secrecy.
This came about
because of implementing a management
program to remove the
board from daily issues and
because of some closed door sessions.
In one secret meeting, a group
recommended two other venders above
Apple, the computer company the laptop
Secrecy for Vendor Apple
I witnessed a desire by several in
the project to want Apple to be
the vender to supply the laptops.
The Apple is a more expensive
computer and is less popular,
but is more secure.
Because of mass popularity of other
wanting the Apple may have preferred
to keep operations secret.
Secrecy for Morals Teaching
Because the laptop was to be going
home with the children, it could became the
sole communication device for the
students. Consequently, it had the
potential to teach the children
moral values, or specifically,
Christian moral values.
Invariably, there is a secrecy when
it comes to teaching morals because
someone might consider the teaching
Secrecy for GOD-Nation Teachings
The question that does not seem to be
answered, is whether the GOD-Nation 
machine was involved in the secrecy.
More specifically, was the Bush
GOD-Nation machine involved, because his administration
is always cloaked in secrecy and tricks.
Note that the GOD-Nation members want the schools
to be teaching Christianity morals. That is about 50%
of the population. Remember the 2006 Georgia
legislature approved teaching the Christian Bible
in the public schools.
Johnstone Wants Church Separation
Johnstone's answer to using the computer for
moral Christian teaching comes
from a section in the
Marietta Daily Journal named Around Town and written by
Bill Kinney. An excerpt,
originating from a supporter of Johnstone,
"Let's be sure we keep religion
in our place of worship ... NOT
in Cobb County Schools."
Such a statement could be suicide in
Roswell Street Baptist Church
Because Reverend Crooks is at
Roswell then there is a good
chance that he is influenced by
a GOD-Nation mentality.
I have already written two articles
mentioning Roswell Street Baptist Church:
-- About churches taking over the City of Marietta.
Reverend Nelson Price and GOD-Nation.
-- The twisting of our Constitution to justify theocracy.
Roswell Stronger via MDJ
Not only does Roswell have strong
power from the
GOD-Nation, Roswell has a direct entry
into a section of the Marietta
Daily Journal which allows
Reverend Nelson Price to write articles
as if he were a political commentary.
For Johnstone, bringing up the
"religion card", was not an
option. She was forced to choose
a JJ-Nation position just to
compete with the GOD-Nation association
Since Republicans are controlled
by the GOD-Nation, and the Democrats
also but to a lesser extent, this might look like
she is doomed?
A way Out, Ralph Reed Loss
Ralph Reed's loss was a possible signal
that the people are tired of the
GOD-Nation controlling everything.
Also, my running for Governor and
publicly introducing the term GOD-Nation
exposes the existence of the GOD-Nation.
Was Johnstone Stopping the GOD-Nation?
Some questioned why Johnstone tried to
push the laptop control
behind closed doors,
others wanted open discussions from groups.
Maybe Johnstone was trying to protect the
laptops from having moral beliefs
put on the computers by the
masses, many of which are members of the
Democrats need to help Johnstone
Because of Johnstone's statement about
the freedom of religion, Johnstone will
need support by Democrats who have
not already voted as Democrats in this
primary. If Reverend Crooks beats
Johnstone, the already
strong Republicans and GOD-Nation supporters
will make Crooks a shoo-in against
Democrat Dr. Beth Farokhi, in spite of
her high qualifications!!!
Civil Liberty Republicans Please Vote for Johnstone
Johnstone is forced into
a JJ-Nation stance, against
Reverend Crooks GOD-Nation stance.
Civil Liberty Republicans need to help
 GOD-Nation -- Are those that want world theocracy.
 JJ-Nation -- Are those wanting the individual to
be independently strong allowing civil liberties.
