Seasoning the diced meat and fat before grinding

Franklin Clinton

Soon he got tired of Maine and moved to Chicago. At the time, Chicago was becoming the gateway to the West. Railroads had just linked it to the east. Fuller built a law practice in Chicago. Within two years, he appeared before the Supreme Court of Illinois in the case of Beach v. He became a leading attorney in the city. He also argued the case of Tappan v. He was a minor figure in Illinois politics. He spent one term in the Illinois House of Representatives from to , and was a delegate to the Illinois Constitutional Convention in , and to the national Democratic Conventions of , , , and In , he made the nominating speech for Thomas Hendricks , for the Democratic nomination for President.

Cleveland then tried to persuade Fuller to accept appointment as Solicitor General of the United States , but Fuller again declined. On April 30, , President Grover Cleveland nominated him for the chief justice position following the death of Morrison R.

Fuller was not the first man to be mentioned as a possible Supreme Court nominee; the former ambassador to Great Britain, Edward J. Phelps , was perceived as the front-runner for the nomination, but declined because he thought that as a former Minister to England, his nomination might be looked on unfavorably by Irish-Americans, a major Democratic Party constituency.

Fuller's nomination was tepidly received in the Senate. He had avoided military service during the Civil War , and while serving in the Illinois House of Representatives had attempted to block wartime legislation proposed by Governor Richard Yates.

Republicans thus launched a smear campaign against Fuller, portraying him as a Copperhead —an anti-war Democrat—and publishing a tract claiming that "The records of the Illinois legislature of are black with Mr.

Fuller's unworthy and unpatriotic conduct. He received his commission the same day. On the bench, he oversaw a number of memorable or important opinions. Texas , U. Ferguson , though the actual phrase was "equal but separate". The Court under Fuller declared the income tax law unconstitutional in Pollock v. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania U. The Court through his opinion struck a blow against government antitrust legislation with the case United States v.

On immigration, Fuller, speaking for the court, ruled in the case of Gonzales v. The Court however declined to declare that Puerto Ricans were U.

The question of the citizenship status of the inhabitants of the new island territories, their situation remained confusing, ambiguous, and contested. Puerto Ricans came to be known as something in between: She appealed her case, whereby the Court ruled in favor of Gonzalez and allowed her to remain in the US.

Fuller's opinion did not go so far as to claim that she was automatically a US citizen, however, he recognized that Puerto Rico was a territory of the US as of the Spanish—American War , and therefore Gonzales had the right to remain in the US.

This paved the way for future Puerto Ricans to freely immigrate to the US. Later, in , the Jones—Shafroth Act was passed by Congress, which provided even more immigration and citizenship rights to Puerto Ricans.

He also served on the Arbitration Commission in Paris in to resolve a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela. He was said to closely resemble Mark Twain. Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir in parsley or dill, and serve. Steve Rinella's Wild Game Jerky. Watch Steve walk through the process in this video. Put the cubed meat in your fridge to cool it off. Once the casings are pliable, change the water and give them another soak for 20 — 30 minutes. Then fit one end of each casing over the kitchen faucet and run a cup or two of water into the casing.

Push the water all the way through, to rinse the inside of the casing. Set aside in clean water until ready to use. Mix thoroughly by hand for two minutes. Fill a tub with ice and place the bowl of meat inside the tub to keep it cool. Change the die to the fine grinder plate and grind again. This will create a finely ground fresh sausage. If you like a little more texture to your sausage, simply pass the meat twice through the coarse grinder instead of changing plates.

Cover and refrigerate while you set up your sausage stuffer. The sausage can also be stuffed into 1-pound poly bags as bulk sausage. Fill the hopper of your sausage stuffer with the sausage mixture, and fit the stuffer tube with a cleaned casing. Start pushing meat through the stuffer to clear any air in the stuffer tube.

Before meat enters the casing, tie the end with a simple granny knot. Working slowly, stuff the sausage into the casings. Be careful not to overstuff, and expel any large air bubbles inside the casing by pricking it with a sewing needle.

When filled, tie off the casing with another granny knot. Twist the sausage at these two creases about eight times. Now you have two links. Continue down the length of the casing. Make the seasoning paste: In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the peppercorns, cumin seed, and allspice until fragrant, about 3 minutes.

Cool then transfer to a spice grinder or mortar and pestle along with the annatto seed and grind into a powder. Annatto seed is hard and takes a bit of scraping down and repeated grindings to break up. Add the garlic, oregano, salt, and 3 tablespoons of the orange juice and process into a paste. Place some chopped onions and orange zest on top of banana leaves, place pork fat side down, and add onions and zest on top. He then contacts his old partner Lester Crest and Lester agrees to help Michael get the money, but only if he agrees to sabotage a prototype phone due to be unveiled by Jay Norris , the founder of social networking site Lifeinvader.

Michael infiltrates the LifeInvader Office and meets a computer expert named Rickie Lukens ; he invites Michael upstairs and gets him to start working on the computer. Michael has to close dozens of provocative tabs and run Anteater antivirus software to rid the computer of the viruses. As a reward of his actually rather simple actions, Rickie tells him about the prototype and tells Michael where it is.

Michael goes to the phone's location in the office, and swaps the real phone with a dummy phone. He returns home and watches the Weazel News broadcast of Jay Norris live on television. Sometime in the livestream, Norris pulls his new phone out to showcase one of the new features of it; Michael phones Norris as per Lester's request, and, much to his shock, he causes the dummy phone which has explosives planted in it to explode right beside Norris' head, killing him instantly, and cutting off the broadcast prematurely.

After collecting information about the contents of the Vangelico Jewelry Store , Michael and Lester organise a heist, with Michael insisting that his new friend Franklin be involved, as he believes he will find the experience beneficial. The heist goes smoothly, and the debt owed to Martin Madrazo is paid off, with Michael and Franklin taking a small cut of the takings for themselves.

Unfortunately for Michael, Trevor Philips, who has been alive this entire time, was watching the news report of the robbery; recognizing Michael's modus operandi his Soloman Richards movie quotes , he goes into an initially calm and almost emotionless confusion.

In his continued rage, Trevor sends his friend Wade to find Michael's whereabouts, and almost single-handedly wipes out most of The Lost members in Sandy Shores. He then travels to Los Santos to find the man he thought was dead. After several days of laying low from the jewellery store heist, Michael finds marijuana in the fridge, and correctly assumes it is Jimmy's.

He toys with him, causing an eruption of anger amongst the family. Trevor unexpectedly walks in, much to everyone's shock and horror. Michael suspensely says "It's good to see you, man. Thankfully, the tension is broken by Jimmy revealing that Tracey has gone to audition for Fame or Shame. Realizing that Tracey will embarrass herself in front of the nation due to her "horrible dancing", Michael and Trevor rush to the Maze Bank Arena.

The two rush downstairs to find Lazlow Jones. They watch in shock and horror as Tracey performs a sexually seductive dance and Lazlow begins to do a sexual pose behind her, angering both Michael and Trevor. The pair give chase to a terrified Lazlow who is trying to flee in his red Dilettante to the Los Santos Canal.

In the aftermath, Tracey angrily blames Michael for "ruining her life" again, which doesn't appear to bother him even a bit. Dave explains that Michael's decision to rob the Vangelico Jewelry Store has brought the spotlight on Dave in the FIB, and that if his superiors read his files and discover his deal with Michael it could cause serious repercussions for the pair of them.

Michael proceeds to do tasks for Dave in order to help keep his job with the FIB, in exchange for covering up the crimes that Michael commits. Michael's first task is to locate Ferdinand Kerimov , a suspected terrorist whom the IAA have declared to be dead.

To do so, Norton knocks Michael unconscious to allow him to infiltrate the morgue. Michael regains consciousness during his "autopsy" and strangles one of the coroners. After searching the mortuary, Michael discovers Kerimov's identity tag attached to a woman's foot. Michael later escapes the morgue by killing all the guards. When he has evaded the police, Michael phones Franklin and informs him that he is affiliated to the FIB. Michael orders Franklin to leave the city for his own safety, but Franklin tells Michael that he will stay and help Michael to repay Michael's faith in him.

Michael continues to work for Dave Norton. Kerimov provides information on Javan, who is later shot dead by Michael. When Michael returns home, he finds his wife with her yoga instructor Fabien LaRouche , who asks Michael to participate, much to Amanda's irritation.

The session passes relatively smoothly until Fabien performs a sexual pose on Amanda, which angers Michael. Michael lunges at Fabien, who dodges him, causing Michael to stumble into his swimming pool. Angered by her husband's behaviour, Amanda leaves with Fabien. Michael goes upstairs and speaks to Jimmy, who asks him to go with him to get a package from a friend.

In the car, Jimmy says that this is not his friend, but Michael notes that he is the only person that Jimmy speaks with. They meet the friend at Burger Shot and he gives Jimmy some cannabis and a drink.

On the way home, Michael drinks from Jimmy's cup and begins to feel drowsy. Jimmy reveals that he had the drink spiked with ketamine, before pushing Michael out of the car and revealing that he's taking Michael's car and some of the money from his bank account and is moving out. Michael has hallucinations of him being abducted by aliens before waking up in his underwear a few blocks away from his home. When he gets to the house, he finds a note from Amanda saying that his family has left due to Michael's poor behaviour as of late.

Trevor later contacts Michael and Franklin to partake in his own heist, which involves infiltrating the "lizard" mercenary group Merryweather Security and their unknown cargo at the docks. The heist goes as planned and Trevor finds a superweapon, presumably nuclear in nature, that Lester reveals is highly dangerous, especially in the hands of someone like Trevor and tells him that he must return it.

Michael and Franklin agree, and Trevor is furious that he cannot keep the loot. This time they must rob an armored truck filled with funds that the IAA has received due to drug sales. Haines wants those funds to help support the Bureau. Michael then proceeds to deliver the funds to billionaire Devin Weston , who offers Michael a partnership with his movie idol, who happens to be movie producer Solomon Richards.

Offered his dream job, Michael eagerly agrees and delivers the cars to Weston. Michael is thrilled to finally meet Richards, who hires him as an assistant. His first job is to convince Ancelotti crime family made man Rocco Pelosi to obey Solomon's wishes for how the actors should behave during the production of Solomon's latest motion picture Meltdown. Michael stealthily climbs to the helipad where he punches Rocco.

He then performs some dangerous maneuvers in the helicopter to convince Anton Beaudelaire to follow Solomon's orders. This gets Michael on Richards' good side and is promised the role of producer for the upcoming film if Michael continues his good work.

Martin Madrazo later summons Michael and Trevor to his home. Madrazo, who now sees Michael as a friend, requests that he and Trevor shoot down his cousin's private jet, which is carrying some sensitive files that Madrazo wants back.

Michael does his part by bringing it down with a weapon inside a van, while Trevor manages to kill Javier and take the incriminating files. After destroying the van, Michael finds out, to his horror, that due to them being used by Martin to do his dirty work while getting stiffed from payment, Trevor has kidnapped Madrazo's wife Patricia. Knowing full well what Madrazo might do to them if he catches them, Michael agrees to hide out in Sandy Shores with Trevor. This time, the two agents plot to raid an IAA chemical plant to steal a dangerous neurotoxin that the agency is plotting to use in a simulated terrorist attack, with the sole purpose of receiving more funds from the US government.

To carry out this operation, the trio must first secure enough funds to purchase a Cargobob and other assorted equipment that the FIB can't assign them. Ultimately, the crew settles upon robbing the Paleto Bay bank, as it contains millions of dollars deposited there by Blaine County 's corrupt law enforcement department who extort money from all the local cannabis farms, whore houses and meth labs according to Trevor.

After planning the robbery, Michael and Trevor meet at Trevor's trailer , where they have a short conversation and drink beer. They then leave the trailer and during the way, Trevor receives a call from Franklin, who upon Trevor's request is tailing the remaining O'Neil brothers - inbred, redneck meth dealers, who are vengeful because of Trevor's earlier attack on the O'Neil household, resulting in the murders of most of the O'Neil Family and the destruction of their farm.

Franklin chases the O'Neils, who crash because of an elk on the road and escape in a forest, located somewhere in the Raton Canyon.

Franklin then calls Trevor for air support and eventually, Trevor and Michael come with a helicopter , used in the extraction of Ferdinand Kerimov, out of the IAA building. Using a rifle, fitted with a thermal scope, Michael shoots Walton and Wynn O'Neil dead, but can't get a clear image of O'Neil gang leader Elwood O'Neil, who is hiding behind a rock and firing anti-tank rockets towards the helicopter. With the help of Chop , Franklin locates and kills Elwood, after which he and Chop are picked up by the helicopter and safely return back to Sandy Shores.

Using stolen military body armour and machine guns, Trevor, Michael, Franklin and one gunman successfully rob the Paleto bank , taking a small cut each and giving the largest profit to Haines and Norton so they can purchase the equipment for the chemical plant robbery, much to the team's irritation.

While awaiting this operation, Michael and Trevor carry out another job, raiding a Merryweather courier train that carries gold and priceless artifacts so that they can pay off Martin Madrazo. Trevor derails the train over a bridge in Raton Canyon and Michael dives into the river below to retrieve the merchandise, taking an ancient Aztec fertility statuette that Madrazo would value. Trevor is greatly dissatisfied with Michael's choice of take, but he calms down once Michael proposes that, once they get the FIB off their cases, they should carry out "the big one" - stealing millions of dollars worth of gold bullion from the Union Depository.

Initially, Trevor states that it can't be done, verging suicidal almost, but mutually accepts when Michael challenges him on that being a line he's afraid to cross. After returning to Los Santos, Michael receives an unexpected visit from Trevor at his Rockford Hills mansion, who pitches him the idea of busting Brad out of jail. Michael's reluctance to go ahead with the plan leads to a debate, during which Trevor finally realizes that Brad is in fact dead and buried at Michael's supposed grave in North Yankton.

He hastily travels back there with Michael in pursuit. After a stand off at his Brad's grave, they are attacked by Wei Cheng's henchmen, who incorrectly assumed that Michael and Trevor are lovers and had been surveying them ever since their exile to Sandy Shores.

Trevor flees, leaving Michael to fend off the henchmen himself. Although he manages to kill most of Cheng's henchmen, Michael is captured when he tries to escape in his car, which Trevor sabotaged to prevent Michael from escaping. After being tortured by Cheng at a meat processing factory back in Los Santos, he is rescued by Franklin. Michael speaks to him about his decision in the past and defends that he had to make it for his family. Afterwards, he cleans the blood off himself and changes into a suit.

Michael revisits the movie studio to resume work with his idol Solomon Richards. In return, Solomon keeps to his word and makes Michael a credited producer in his upcoming film, much to Michael's overwhelming joy. He leaves a voicemail message on Amanda's phone to try to convince her that he is finally doing something good with his life. Michael and Franklin are called up once again by Haines for one more job: This goes according to plan, but when Michael meets Haines and Norton at the Kortz Center , Haines attempts to arrest him to cover his involvement in the raid.

The situation quickly spirals out of control as Haines is shot in the leg by an FIB operative but manages to escape, killing Sanchez in the process. Paper Contact and escape with the help of Trevor, who, despite not forgiving Michael, removes his vow of killing Michael and wants him in for "the Big Score". Having had enough of being alone, Michael finally seeks out and reunites with his family. With this and his involvement in Solomon Richards' upcoming film, things are finally starting to look positive, until Devin Weston announces his intentions to exploit the movie studio's insurance policy by hiding the completed film from the world so he could claim the insurance money, ultimately closing and destroying the studio and building condos on the site.

During the chase, she is accidentally killed after being sucked into a jet engine. Michael retrieves the film, and Solomon arranges a premiere so that it cannot be tampered with any further. At the premiere, Weston unexpectedly shows up and cryptically threatens Michael with Amanda and Tracey's lives because of his interference.

After Michael rushes home with Jimmy, he kills the intruders revealed to be Merryweather mercenaries. Michael is enranged that Merryweather actually came to his house trying to kill his family, so he asks his family to move out for a few days.

Lester replies that neither Merryweather nor Devin Weston is running short of reasons to come and kill him. Lester asks Michael whether the incident changes his stand on The Union Depository, to which Michael replies that they pull off the Big Score right away. Following the heist, Michael's fate depends on Franklin's choice to kill him, Trevor or everyone that had double-crossed them.

Franklin shoots the gas to incinerate Trevor before the tanker explodes. Michael and Franklin reflect on how crazy Trevor was and it was this constant craziness which led to his demise. Shortly after, they split up before Franklin sarcastically remarks the event as an "illuminating experience", which Michael counters by telling him to survive, and everything else is "bullshit" Something Sensible. However, in Franklin's reply, he notices Franklin's intention to kill him and escapes, eventually ending up at the Palmer-Taylor Power Station.

They continue to chase up on one of the chimney walkways and after a minor scuffle, Franklin pushes Michael over the rail, leaving him hanging precariously. Franklin can choose to drop him or have second thoughts and attempt to save him, but with either choice, Michael falls to his death The Time's Come.

Afterwards, he meets Franklin and Trevor, the latter having kidnapped Weston and locked him in the trunk of his car, at the foothills of Mount Chiliad.

After taunting Weston on their apparent victory, the trio pushes the car off the cliff and into the ocean, destroying the car and killing Weston. Making amends with Trevor, Michael reflects that he is getting too old to continue a life of crime, and drives home with Franklin, agreeing to end his partnership with Franklin and Trevor, but remaining friends with them.

Michael is a Caucasian male, aged either 45 or 48, with grayish black hair and light green eyes. In official artwork, he is shown to have blue eyes. His default appearance is a cleft chin with a Lexington hairstyle and a short stubble around his face. Michael's physique is thicker and more heavily built than the likes of Trevor and Franklin, having burly and veiny arms and legs. This most certainly comes from his time as a quarterback and his stint in prison.

Although Michael isn't obese or out of shape, many people around him will occasionally make fun of his rather large midsection, such as Jimmy and Trevor or even himself at many times.

Michael's movement is also much more slower than Franklin and Trevor's, as he's much older and on top of the fact that his ten year retirement from crime has forced him to not be as physically active as the other two.

During Pack Man , Trevor tells Lamar that when he met Michael he was "kinda fat, but strong underneath". Michael's initial wardrobe sets him with a gray two-piece suit without a tie and casual attires like beach shorts with sandals or polo shirts. His gray suit is his default outfit used in most of his artwork and concept art. He shows approval as he's trying out outfits at Ponsonby's, opposite to the clear disdain of buying items from Suburban or Binco.

His facial features are still the same. Michael's beta appearance can be seen in Trailers one and two, where he is seen with green eyes and an older look.

This was changed later in the character's development to make him look like he wasn't too old to perform some of the things he would do during gameplay. Grand Theft Auto series protagonists by Universes.

Michael is a very muddled person, even confused by his "good and evil" personality. He spends an uncommon amount of time in his head, where he can comfortably think or reminisce about certain things or aspects that give him a brief moment of nostalgia from his glory days. Nevertheless, it also constrains him into a world of wistfulness and bewilderment as he ponders the reason why things aren't going in the direction he planned it would.

Michael has an obsession for materialistic appearance and images, making it the main reason for why he dreamt of living out his Vinewood Dream with his family. He claims to Franklin that he has lived a repeated pattern of " Chase things, get em', hate em'. Michael holds a deep-seated amount of self-hatred, due to him wanting to live a life that's a falsehood rather than coming to the conclusion that his troubling mistakes has garnished a great deal of misfortune upon himself, his family, and old friends and associates of his his deal with the FIB is a prime example.

The self-hatred gives him an exceptionally short temper that he doesn't know how to control, which fills him with rage and causes him to not think at times. One example would be where he caught Amanda having an affair with her tennis coach, Kyle Chavis.

He chases Kyle to a mansion and pulls it off a hillside believing that it belonged to him however, nearly everyone around Michael except Franklin , including Chavis himself, knew that the mansion was too expensive for him to afford with his salary.

Sarcasm is something that Michael firmly grasps because of the self-hatred, as he doesn't know how to respond to his family or friends properly at times without it. He indicates this in the mission Paleto Score Setup , where he proclaims that sarcasm is one of the only things he has left in this world that can't be taken away from him. Michael is a highly egotistical and narcissistic person. He'll only be concerned about the issues he's being pulled through, instead of the situations that he constantly puts his family or his friends through and will often get unfairly defensive when someone rightfully criticizes him.

A case in point of this wrong doing is shown in one of the many heated arguments he has with his wife, Amanda. At the start of Fame or Shame she castigates him for not giving her any support in raising their children and only wanting to cater to himself by Getting drunk, or you're staring miserably at the clouds, or you're out there doing God only knows what.

He responds with the fact that he, Pulled you out of a midwestern trailer park, got you a big mansion in Rockford Hills , and that the only thing she'll have to worry about is What part of your body you want to have chopped off or sucked out again.

Another instant is in the same mission, where Trevor chides him for letting Tracey humiliate herself on public television the way she did and labeling it as Poor parenting.

Michael responds in a defensive manner, Yeah, thanks for the fucking feedback.
