Because they're an evil communist totalitarian regime that tramples upon the rights of its citizens with reckless abandon.

Giggity?

Didn't Cuba discontinued the exit visa process a couple of months ago? This might be the reason why visas are being issued at a higher rate than a couple of months ago. An exit visa basically adds the value of Cubans leaving the country and with that lifted, it's easier and cheaper to leave Cuba.

Our corporations are still pissed off about all the assets they lost when Castro took over.

Because Castro's revolution took away the 'anything goes' playground for America's jaded elite. So, the Cuban people must be punished for making rich Americans travel to the DR or Costa Rica to have sex with children while doped out of their minds.

Basically white cubans in south florida are a powerful voting block and they hate that they can't go back to running Cuba and keeping the black cubans as their housekeepers.

Because Fidel Castro allowed Russia AKA Soviet Union to put missiles with atomic bombs capable of nuking dozens of USA cities on Cuban soil. Recall Nikita Khrushchev at the UN banging his shoe on the table saying "We will bury you". Good times.

Now why would Fidel want to be on the good side of the Soviet Union in the early 1960s.

50 years is a little long to hold a grudge, don't you think?

No. Not while Fidel Castro is still alive and probably not as long as his brother Raúl is in power. Post-Castro we can deal with the new Cuba. You're welcome.

So should the Russians still be pissed at us because we put missiles in Turkey that were capable of nuking Soviet cities? We were being just as proactive to them at the time.
