Lawn ornaments are not tacky at all

America has a lot of problems - a dependence on oil, expensive war, ginormous deficit and health-care woes.

But the biggest problem of all is that America has completely missed the boat with lawn ornaments.

These suckers are shiny, artistic, understated and sophisticated. Why do I not see more of them?

Well, a lot of people are misguided when it comes to lawn style. Maybe they think lawn ornaments are tacky, or maybe they think adorning their lawn with a jockey, shiny ball or gnome is too fancy - pretty much the same reason why many people are afraid to drive PT Cruisers.

I guess I'm a hypocrite because I don't have any lawn ornaments, and friends - so-called friends - inform me that they are indeed tacky. But how in the world could a shiny yard globe be tacky? It has healing powers.Lawn jockeys are a whole different conversation. Even though most are white nowadays, they seem racist.

However, according to at least one article, the black jockey in the "Jocko" style originally was a symbol of freedom for runaway slaves. I could not verify it on the Internet, but I believe the PT Cruiser is a symbol for awesomeness.
