I happen to come across this and thought I would share. It has to do with the Holy Name of Jesus, IHS. Since, President Obama proved, from the beginning of his presidency, he did not respect Catholic Conscience with the act of removing IHS from his speech @ Georgetown University, We as Catholics should use IHS to defeat Obama. "In this sign you shall conquer." Please read to understand:  "In Hoc Signo vinces" – "In this sign, you shall conquer" 

"After three nails were added under the insignia (together with a cross above), some noticed that the inscription now contained a “V” below the IHS – so that we see IHSV. (see image on the side) In this form it was adopted by St. Ignatius as the symbol of the Jesuits.
IHSV was interpreted to mean In Hoc Signo Vinces, “In this sign, you shall conquer”. It was taken as a reference to the victory which Constantine won against Maxentius at the Milvian Bridge on 28 October 312. Before the battle, the future Emperor saw a sign in the sky (probably the Greek chi-rho X-P, the symbol of “Christ”) and heard the words εν τουτω νικα, which is Greek for “In this [sign], you shall conquer”. The phrase was translated into Latin and it was noticed that the first letters of each word added up to IHSV – thus was born the legend that IHS stood for Constantine’s vision and the Christianization of Rome.
Most certainly, in the Holy Name of Jesus we shall conquer every enemy – and the last enemy to be destroyed is death itself."
