Why do we still cling to the United Nations?

What possible value does the UN have to the United States of America today?

I understand what many other nations get out of it. They can send spies posing as 'delegation staff' to New York, they get free money and every minor despot and potentate gets a pulpit from which to attack the US.

Isn't it time to allow the UN to go somewhere else? Why not Cuba or some other 'worker's paradise'? Let the minor nations of the world gather in Cuba and rant against Europe and the US like they do in so many other forums that nobody cares about. Why do we fund the rants against us?
