    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Yep. That's too short a time span for investing with any risk at all.

    If you really must have it back by April then you're not in a good position to take any risk. There aren't really any safe options unless you want to dump it into a short term CD or money market, and even those will be considerably less than 1% interest.

    Probably best just to hang on to the cash.


    Edit/Update: According to bankrate.com, the very best you could hope for in a three month CD would be 0.69% to 0.8% depending on the institution:

    I would at least hedge against inflation. Silver has a bigger upside than gold, and silver should be higher than 26-27$ come April. Again, it isn't riskless, but it is about as riskless as one can be while also hedging inflation (and possibly getting a net return over the rate of inflation). Your choice though. (Agricultural & other commodity stocks would probably be a decent investment for 6 months time)

    Though, if you must have the 10,000 on April 15 (I assume you mean you will be owing Gubbermint taxes), I wouldn't spend it at all, unless you want to do some Civ Dis and not pay the taxes whatsoever. Certainly an option there.

    Start a sole proprietorship and buy 10,000 in "inventory", take a loss and write it off. Abracadabra.

    Buy a decent sized oil company such as Haliburton.

    I only need around 4k of it back for taxes on 4/15. I'd rather have the money doing something besides sitting in a bank losing value.

    Silver or Gold. I would rather go with Silver, since it has more upsides. Don't put the money into a worthless bank account, CD, or whatever else that gets <1% interest. You want to hedge it against inflation and the printing presses. Of course, there are a lot of great stocks out there too.

    Find a silver miner, a gold miner, an oil company and two agricultural stocks you like. Split the money among those stocks.

    Then 4k is the amount you need to keep sitting in a bank losing value (or getting 0.85% interest in a 3 month CD, which is about the best you'll get for that time frame). And the other 6k you should invest however you want with whatever tolerance of risk you have for it.

    Yup.

    A number of banks are offering "rewards checking" with 4% yields on $25,000. You usually have to meet some criteria each month like debit card swipes, but it's a great deal.

    Matters how much you can lose...If you need 10k, then just put it in the bank.
