Ain't it just ducky!! But at least they are not spending the money on democratic campaigns!

David Lynch's Billion-Dollar Peace Plan

Film director David Lynch has a plan for world peace, and he wants to raise $1 billion to implement his idea.

Lynch says he would use the billion dollars to build "peace palaces" in 3,000 cities throughout the world.

He told the press: "There's this beautiful ocean of bliss and consciousness that is able to be reached by any human being by diving within, which is really peaceful and harmonious and can be enlivened by the group process. This group is a peace-creating group. It saturates the atmosphere. This is all about establishing peace. Right now, we gotta get peace back in the world. Peace is a real thing."

All the rhetoric doesn't necessarily mean that Lynch has been hanging out with Richard Gere.

No, the guy has actually been involved with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Transcendental Meditation for about 30 years. The group's founding guru has had the desire to build places that will allow large groups of people to meditate.

Lynch has apparently spread the word about his T.M. ambitions to some big-name celebrities that he's worked with. Actresses Heather Graham, Laura Dern and Laura Harring have all jumped on Lynch's peace train and pledged their support for a peace palace in L.A.

Meditators plan to gather twice a day and send positive vibes out into the world.

The Left Coast Report takes solace in knowing that when Hollywood libs are busy meditating at least their jaws aren't flapping.
