Your Call 070207 Is Sicko Fair?

Is Sicko fair? On the next Your Call, a debate on Michael Moore's new health care documentary between supporters and opponents of single payer health care. There are almost 50 million uninsured Americans, and - as Moore's film shows - many who do have health coverage often don't get the care they need. What should be done about it? Should we, as Moore advocates, adopt a new system similar to France and Cuba? Or do we need a more market-based approach? What about a hybrid system like San Francisco's new universal health plan? On Monday's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Your Call 070407 Chalmers Johnson

Is America headed the way of the Roman Republic - towards imperial government and eventual collapse? On the next Your Call, we'll talk with renowned political scientist Chalmers Johnson about his new book "Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic." The U.S. now maintains more than 737 military bases throughout the world and spends more on the military than all other major world powers combined. Does the militarization of America toll the death knell for our democracy? It's Your Call with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.

Empire vs. Democracy

Your Call 070507 Immigration Reform

What happens next on the Mexican Border? On the next Your Call we'll do a post mortem on the failed immigration reform. The immigrant community might not have gotten the reform they wanted, but they flexed their muscles on a national stage. But so did the nativist wing of the talk radio nation. What should the millions of undocumented expect from a burned Bush administration? A return to the status quo or a turn of the screw? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.

Your Call 070607 Media Roundtable

On the next Your Call, it's our Friday media roundtable. Twelve million undocumented immigrants didn't get to come out of the shadows, but Scooter Libby did. Two bombs failed to explode outside a London nightclub and Alan Johnston, the BBC's Gaza correspondent, was released unharmed. The Mercury News fired an additional 40 reporters and editorial page after editorial page eulogized the Bush presidency after the death of his immigration reform bill. What was your story of the week? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.
