Obviously, if you want user to define a new password for a web site, he should not be able to reuse an existing password, so it really does make sense to prevent pasting password.

And this is even more obvious for a confirm password box. If the user mistype its first password, the confirm box help ensure that he has entered the same password twice reducing the chance of an error. Well, in that case, a site should probably disable all copy operations : copy, cut and paste.

This is not 100% full proof as it would fails if wrong keyboard is selected or if caps lock is active...

If it is a pain to type a password twice, then it would be a pain in the future to retype that password whenever you have to.

And for discouraging people to select insecure password, usually there is a minimal length (often 8 characters) and rules like having at least one digit, one characters, one uppercase character and a symbol...

Thus, if fact, I would that the problem is that you don't really understand security issues as otherwise, you would not complain about having to type a password twice...

Well, if you need to fill a form with many fields (like 10 fields or more) and the validation fails (say the site want phone numbers using 000-111-2222 format and you used (000) 111-2222 instead, or haven't filled a required field), then having to retype the password then begin to be somewhat painful...

Although it is possible to make improvements to make the site more user friendly, you don't always want to take much more time to develop a page (or multiple pages) for marginal benefit.
