I continue to get that *#*#*# Google cookie even if I have private browsing checked and to always block cookies.
How is Google bypassing the settings. This is really creepy they keep trying to plant their evil cookies on my computer againsts my wishes and settings!!!!!!!

You are right; in many cases Google, amongst others, seem able to by pass the basic anti-cookie protection so it seems to me the easiest resolution is to use an efficient cookie controller. After event, maybe, but better than nothing.
I use Cookie (available in App Store) and I can remove all unwanted cookies, flash cookies, databases (watch for these in particular), with one click for each grouping.

And of course you are right. The point about using the 'Cookie' app is that in three clicks you can remove all cookies you have not previously checked as to be allowed. It's no great chore and you can do it on a daily or weekly basis to choice.
You don't need to examine them ... just click each of the categories. Yes, cast a cursory eye over the list just in case there is something you may want, but otherwise ...
Incidentally I have no connection with the developers, although I am currently in contact with them about updating their App to include a domain blacklist option.

Derryl - do you have Safari preferences...Security - warn when visiting a fraudulent wesbsite checked on ?

I uncheckedturns checked the warn if visiting fraudulent site, google did not appear in cookies.
This appears to be just an OSX Safari situation. I cleared all web info on my iPad, went to sites and nothing from Google or anyone else appeared with never on cookies was selected, even though the fraudulent site warning is turned on.
