Agree but it's not the government doing it but business.. You'd be suprised how much information I could gather on you.
Having said that Google is by far the single biggest threat to your privacy. They have massive amounts data on everyone and some of it can easily be tied together. Consider this, Google knows whats on every page on this site, nearly every page that is served by this site is served with an ad, Google can now associate your IP with what you're interested in. It only needs to tie the IP to a real person which is not all that hard if you already have cookie on your computer Google can use to track you... They know what you search for in their search engine, they got massive amounts of data that people upload to Gmail and other services etc.
The government "aint" got *censored* when it comes to tracking you compared to Google.
