"Crooks best board bet"
2006-08-08a09: Cobb Laptops, Johnstone, Crooks, Farokhi The Republican runoff between school board members Johnstone and Crooks in district 6 is occurring now. Its outcome will affect Democrat Farokhi in November. Because, voting is light, some outside influence might affect the election in District 6. Overall, I have been working on the Cobb County laptop computer case for about a year and due to demurs, the case is still lingering. A side issue exists however. The leader of the laptop project, Kathie Johnstone, is up for school board re-elections in district 6. She is a Republican in a runoff, August 8, 2006, against Reverend Crooks of the Roswell Baptist Church. Either Johnstone or Crooks will run against Beth Farokhi, Democrat, in November. For Farokhi, if Crooks wins, she will be running against not just a Republican but the Republican GOD-Nation. GOD stands for Global Ordained Denominations. The GOD-Nation wants to take over the world and is symbolically headed by President Bush. Crooks is from the Roswell Street Baptist Church that was once led by locally famous Nelson Price who writes in the editorial section of the Marietta Daily Journal and keeps claiming the Declaration of Independence is our constitution in an effort to justify that we should be a GOD-Nation. It makes one wonder if Crooks is of the same mindset as his church. Women have an interest in this because women's rights are obliterated when the GOD-Nation takes over -- abortion, gay marriage, etc. So, if you see some way to help Johnstone, please help, in spite of the few hours of voting left.
