    First, put the bike in a bike stand and spin the cranks and simultaneously pull on the bare derailer wire on the downtube and see if it shifts. If it does, then it's most likely a cable tension problem. If not, then adjust the derailer stop.

    what exactly is the derailleur stop? All i know is that the derailleur will not move out any farther.

    It's the screw which pushes against the derailleur hanger (frame). Turn it in to accommodate a larger rear gear.

    Could be a bent hanger, too.
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?

    The derailler moves in to the 28T cog and moves out to the 12T cog. If it isnt a cable tension thing, it will be a low limit screw or B screw adjustment as shown on Sheldons page.
