My site located at carlosparra.com/ryans is showing me a huge margin to the right keeping the page from being centered and expanding the window to the right. I need to get rid of this margin but I have looked over my entire stylesheet and cannot find it for the life of me. It is a child theme of Twenty Eleven.

Check the footer. That's where you have the extra margin.

Search and remove this from the footer styling :

padding: 2.2em

AngryHermit,

The area that caused the huge right margin to be corrected on my screen was this tag in your footer.  You have the width set to 300%:

#grey {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #0C0C0C;
    height: 9em;
    line-height: 10em;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-left: -50%;
    margin-top: -6.69em;
    overflow: visible;
    width: 300%; -  You should change this to 100%
    z-index: 1;
}
