but what about all the other porn & violence our kids should not be looking at on the 'net?
First of all, as a parent, it is my responsibility to make the decisions about what my kids should and shouldn't have access to. It's not their responsibility to decide what is best for my family, and it certainly not yours. If I want to censor my kids' internet experience, I can buy net nanny software and select the categories and sites that I decide are important. Also, the more you tell someone that they can't have something the more they want it, especially with kids. If you try and block access to porn & violence they will make it their life's mission to get access to it. Its usually better to talk to them and let them know why certain things are not good for them so that when they do access it they will put your words together with what they observe and realize that what you are telling them makes sense.
Second, I could be mistaken but I don't believe there are any countries where child pornography or bestiality is legal. I think we can all agree that both acts are so disgusting that they shouldn't be tolerated, so it should be relatively simple thing to set up a system where such sites can be reported so that they can be verified and shut down. I know it's not that simple, but it's easier than setting up and maintaining a nationwide web filter using these things as a pretense to strip away my rights.
Third, I am not a kid. I am an adult and can make my own decisions about whether I want to watch porn or violent shows. How does a nationwide web filter know how old I am? It doesn't and it's just a pretense for someone in power to impose their narrow values on me.
Your whole argument is that this nationwide web filter is a waste of time & money because it doesn't do enough to suit your narrow paradigm of right and wrong. Why do you think that you get to decide that kinky, watersports, scat and BDSM porn should be blocked? Just because you don't like these things doesn't mean that you have the right to prevent others who do from watching them. I don't understand why you lump these things in with child pornography and beastiality. If a kid sees a plain-vanilla sex scene on the net that involves a man and a woman, is it any different? What if its features anal sex? How about 2 women? Group sex? Do you consider some professional sports too violent and need to be blocked? Mixed martial arts, boxing, hockey and American football all can be very violent. Or is it OK because they don't involve guns?
If I don't like something then I don't watch it. Its lazy, narrow-minded, non-thinking people like you how have bought into the "think of the children" BS that are making it easy for the government to slowly strip away people's rights.
