The key error message here is:

[ WARN] [1392274417.845193549]: Message Filter [target=/odom ]: Dropped 100.00% of messages so far. Please turn the [ros.amcl.message_notifier] ros console logger to DEBUG for more information.

What this means is that AMCL is trying to transform laser scans from their incoming frame into the /odom frame and failing because a transform from the laser frame to the odom frame doesn't exist.

You should probably be either running a driver for your robot that publishes odometry as a trasform from the /odom frame to the /base_link frame, or you can try lowering AMCL's reliance on odometry and publishing a static transform from the /odom frame directly to your laser frame.
