TC, there really is one important caveat to this.
It is not so much that Joe decided to work with Veneto and/or CMF. Joe basically had no choice, because they owned the assets (MSO pharmacy business, and 20% of Olaregen, respectively) that he wanted. So in case he wanted those assets, he needed to cut a deal with them in order to be able to acquire these asstes from them.
And still, I do believe that Joe has a very clear vision in his head, as to what GNBT and its subs, is supposed to look like when he has fit all the puzzle pieces together to that large enterprise that he has in mind. And he just lost basically one entire year in that process due to the issues with the dividend, "foul apples" and drastically declined PPS, as all those caused significant delays in uplisting GNBT and after that making significant debt funding available to him to jump start all of the businesses he acquired and wants to fit together into that enterprise.
So if I am not entirely wrong in reading Joe's mind, I guess he is THE ONE, who is most disappointed and frustrated with the situation that he was forced into, for whatever reasons, because he is stuck in this situation, while everyone else here, could just sell his/her shares, deal with the losses and walk away. If he'd do the same, he has lost almost 4 years of his life and probably at least a significant shunk of his savings. So I am still sure that we can count on him, doing what is best for the company IN THE GIVEN SITUATION, where sometimes hard decisions need to be made, when he is running out of options.
