RANDALL AMSTER – â€œHello, youâ€™ve reached the people of the United States of America. Weâ€™re away from our desks right now, and perhaps for good â€” so instead of leaving a message for us, we encourage you to take your messages directly to the halls of power for their consideration. If you require immediate assistance, do not ask the agents of governments or corporations, but organize in your own communities instead. For directory assistance, get out in the streets and talk to others concerned about the direction of the nation and world. To be connected to an operator, follow the protest signs and/or the smell of teargas in the financial districts across the country. And if you should become disconnected â€¦ we are very happy to welcome you home to the movement!â€
